Mrs. Alessio was such a wonderful example of the greatest generation America has ever known! Selfless and self-sacrificing, humble and honest, loyal and loving, patriotic and proud, she was a strong and independent woman who lived an active life for virtually all of her nearly 100 years! She quietly shook her head at much of this world counts as progress and was saddened by the lack of basic decency and civility in today’s society. She loved her Lord, her family, her Church, and her Country to the fullest! I was very proud to know her but take comfort that the Lord called her home to Himself. God Bless and comfort you Donna for the unconditional love, support, and care you freely and lovingly gave your Mother over so many years! Prayers for healing and peace for all the rest of Mrs. Alessio’s family and friends as well…this world and all of us will surely miss you!

I first met Julia in 1965 and spent many hours with her in the work environment. She made the days seem more pleasant and was such a pleasure to know her and her family. Our thoughts, love, and prayers are with her and her family.
