She enjoyed the art of cooking, especially for close family & extended family. Her beloved husband, Domenic passed on January 29, 1996.

    Our greatest sympathy to all the Buonadonnas during this time.
    Lou- unfortunately I am unable to attend this Wednesday but I know Sharon will and I hope Emily. I hope we can get together later this summer and raise a toast to your mom- a terrific family she started.

Send your condolences.
