    My prayers go out to you during this most difficult time. I wanted to let you know what a wonderful person your Mother was. I really only met her a dozen times at the Credit Union, but she was so gracious, gentle, kind and had a smile for everyone. A truly elegant lady and I was so glad I got to know her. She will be missed.

    Beppina was a very kind, loving and generous person. Whenever someone went to visit her, she would share the produce from her garden. Later, when she was unable to garden, she created many beautiful articles of clothing for friends and family. She was such a gentle and giving person, always putting others first. Our Sincerest condolences to all of Beppina’s family.

    Your other was so incredibly kind to me as a young girl. Always welcoming me into the family home and encouraging me to stay for dinner. A gentle soul and a true lady. Deepest sympathies extended. Not gone…asleep for now. Janie

    My deepest condolences to the family.
    I was saddened to hear that my cousin Bepina passed away recently (yet another tragedy during this Pandemic). Bepina was tough and yet always the gracious lady. She was sweet, kind and most generous (often doing without herself in order to give to others), The World is now a sadder and generous (often doing without in order to give to others)
    The world without Bepina is now a sadder and emptier.place. Rest In Peace Bepina.

    My deepest condolences go out to the family .I was saddened to learn that my cousin Beppina has passed away. Although she could be tough, Beppina was always a lady and gracious hostess. She was kind and most generous (often doing without in order to give to others). The world is now definitely a sadder place without her.

    Sending my condolences to all of my cousins and their families during this sorrowful time. I will always remember Beppina for her soft voice, and her gentle and kind ways. When it came to her pastry, fine sewing and embroidery, she was a true artist. I know she and my mom were close and now she and her “Zia Angina” and all the “tribe” who have passed before her can be reunited. Love from Mary.
