(April 18, 1928 – December 1, 2019) - It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Florence Julia Filipetti, surrounded by her loving family, in her 92nd year on Sunday, December 1st, 2019. Florence was always a devoted wife, doting mother and “Nonne”. Florence cherished her family. She was a superlative cook and baker who relished every opportunity to indulge all who visited her welcoming home.
She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her and marveled at her uplifting positive spirit. Florence’s faith was profoundly important to her and anchored her life. Florence was predeceased by her husband Len (Ledo) and is survived by her children Rick (Carol), John, and Susan Komhyr (Mike). Also, survived by her grandchildren Kristina (Ben), Michelle (Jonathon) and Zachary (Jessica). Special “Great Nonne” to Henry and Grace, and very special friend to Patty Wilson. Survived by many nieces and nephews. She was the last surviving member of the Sarlo family of 5 brothers and 1 sister, survived by her sister-in-law Lil (late Edward) Sarlo. Florence was also predeceased by 9 brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law of the Filipetti family. Also survived by John (Mary), Phyllis (late Dave) and Brenda (late Donald) Filipetti.
