Giovanna loved her family and enjoyed cooking for them on holidays, spending all hours of the nights to prepare special meals for the family. We will especially miss her delicious sauce, meatballs, egg balls, meat stuffing.
She was a dress maker since the age of 16, often making special dresses for high end celebrities, and was part of the team who put together a few dresses for president's wives.
She sacrificed a lot for her family, getting up at 5am and taking trains to get to work in Manhattan by 9. She did this for 30 years while making sure her children got off to school on time and working overtime to provide for her family's future.
