VINCENZA Di GIACOMO Obituary

Vincenza “Enza” Di Giacomo (nee Massaro). Born in Castiglione di Carovilli, Isernia, Italy on January 27, 1945 to Valentino Massaro and Giovanna Di Giacomo (deceased). Immigrated along with her father, Valentino and her two sisters, Vittoria, and Vera to Cleveland, OH in September 1963. With no knowledge of the language, it did not take her long to assimilate into the American culture while always holding firmly to her Italian heritage and her faith. Beloved wife of Mario (Marco) also from Castiglione, a boyfriend she left behind but after 3 years of living apart, she returned to Castiglione, where they were married on October 9, 1966. On January 5, 1967, Mario arrived in Cleveland and joined the Massaro family which included a father-in-law and sister-in-law. Together they raised their own family and started a faithful 57- year journey as husband and wife. Loving mother of Gianpaolo “John Paul” Di Giacomo (Rita Romito) and Anna Nardi (Nico). Proud  Grandmother of Antonia Domenica and Gianluca Marco Di Giacomo. Dear sister of Vera Massaro and Vittoria Berardi (deceased) (Antonio). Aunt of Giancarlo and Juliana Boswell (Texas), and Giovanna, Fernando, Angela, and Vincenza Berardi (Italy), and sister in-law, Angela Di Giacomo (Italy). She was always an active member of St. Rocco’s parish, including being a member of the Holy Family Sodality and singing in the choir. Vincenza lived her life always believing that God would help her through anything and everything. This faith was evident by the way she handled herself throughout her illness. Her grace, her love, and her belief in God always leading the way. Although she no longer walks with us, the memory of her remarkable strength, generosity, and selflessness will forever endure in all of us. May her soul find eternal peace and her love and compassionate nature live on in the lives that she touched. Mass of Christian Burial, St. Rocco Church, 3205 Fulton Rd, Cleveland, OH 44109 Saturday February 17, 2024 at 10:00 AM.
