Pina immigrated to the USA at the age of 29, met her love and they were wed on January 28, 1956. They were married for 63 years. Pina was a loving dedicated mother and also worked in accounting and billing for 10 years for First Security Bank operations center (Wells Fargo).  She served in the Legion of Mary for many years and always remained a devout Catholic. Pina loved her very close Italian friends and spent much time doing church work, cooking, shopping and adventuring with them. 

Pina’s family wishes to thank her loving caregivers at the Abbington in Murray, especially Lisa, Eva and Rachel, even though she was only there for a few weeks.

A celebration of Mass was held in Pina's honor at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church. Pina will be laid to rest privately at Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery next to her late husband, Herbert.

In lieu of flowers, both Mom and Dad requested donations to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
