In May of 1969, she and her husband, Renato, along with 4 children embarked on the SS Raffaello and came to make a new life in the United States. Landing in New York, they had a quick stop over in Rhode Island before deciding to make the town of Norwalk their new home. Aside from raising her four children, she was able to work several jobs through the years; Swank, Beldoch & Dominic Decorating were some companies that were able to take her in and use her talents as a seamstress. She was very strong in the Roman Catholic Faith and supported her local Churches which she walked to very often. Periodically she would go back and visit her homeland of Ischia, Italy, continuing to keep the family overseas close to her with great care and love.
