Celia T. Rappa (nee Grippi), 75, of Staten Island, NY passed away peacefully at Memorial Sloan Kettering on April 28, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of Salvatore for 55 years and loving mother of Dominick and her fur-baby Lili. Celia proudly worked for Conde Naste for many years. Upon retiring Celia loved to spend time in their Pocono, PA house. Celia had a warmth and radiance that shone, and her biggest joy was being surrounded by family and friends, or making others happy.
