Obituary

Following a short illness, Maria Tumminello passed peacefully in her sleep on May 21, 2020.
Born and raised in Santa Margherita di Belice, Sicily, Maria epitomized the strength, drive and talents of those who courageously traveled far and wide in order to provide greater opportunities for treasured children and who embraced becoming proud U.S. citizens while never forgetting their rich roots and traditions from abroad.
Maria was widely admired for her great devotion to God, exquisite beauty, enormous artistic talents and skills, sumptuous cooking and baking, prolific gardening and self-sacrificing devotion to loved ones. Despite her modest height and several decades of excruciating pain due to a farming accident in Sicily, Maria never ceased to amaze and inspire family, friends and countless admirers with her incredible strength, both physical and mental, hard work and never-quit attitude.
Maria was predeceased by the love of her life, Giuseppe, her beloved husband of 52 years. She is survived by a large family including, in particular, her three devoted children, Caterina (Kenneth Polin), Fina (Dr. Frank Lepore) and Dr. Calogero Tumminello (Katrina), and ten loving grandchildren, David, Steven, Fabrizio, Oriana, Gianluca, Mariella, Karina, Giuseppe, Calogero and Alessandro.
In lieu of flowers or other expressions of sympathy, the family urges those who wish to honor Maria to present a flower to a loved one with a long, warm embrace.


Dopo una breve malattia, Maria Tumminello passò tranquillamente nel sonno il 21 Maggio 2020.

Nata e cresciuta a Santa Margherita di Belice, in Sicilia, Maria ha incarnato la forza, la spinta e i talenti di coloro che hanno viaggiato coraggiosamente in lungo per offrire migliore opportunità ai figli preziosi e che hanno abbracciato diventando orgogliosi cittadini statunitesi senza mai dimenticare le loro ricche radici e tradizioni della Sicilia.

Maria è stata molto ammirata per la sua grande devozione a Dio, la sua bellezza, enorme talenti artistici, cuoca e panettiere al forno, giardinaggio dedicazione e sacrifici per i suoi cari. Nonostante la sua modesta altezza e diversi decenni di dolore a causa di un incidente agricolo in Sicilia, Maria non ha mai smesso di stupire e ispirare la famiglia, gli amici e innumerevoli ammiratori con la sua incredibile forza, sia fisica che mentale, il duro lavoro e atteggiamento mai abbandonato.

L’amore della sua vita, Giuseppe, il suo amato marito di 52 anni, mori prima di Maria. Lascia una numerosa famiglia tra cui, in particolare, i suoi tre devoti figli, Caterina (Kenneth Polin), Fina (Dr. Frank Lepore) e Dr. Calogero Tumminello (Katrina), e dieci affettuosi nipoti, David, Steven, Fabrizio, Oriana, Gianluca, Mariella, Karina, Giuseppe, Calogero e Alessandro.

Al posto dei fiori o di altre espressioni di simpatia, la famiglia esorta coloro che desiderano onorare Maria a presentare un fiore a una persona cara con un caloroso abbraccio.
