Florence Papele passed away on February 26, 2018 after a long illness. She was 84.
She was born in the Bronx to Nicola and Clementina (Limongelli) DiLisio in 1933. She married Louis Papele in 1952 in Mt. Vernon. They moved to New City in 1962 where they raised their family.
Florence worked for many years for Camp Jawonio in New City. She was very dedicated to her "kids" especially with her never ending bowl of candy!
She is survived by her husband Louis, son Thomas, daughter Susan (Billy) Bianco, her 2 grandchildren, Louis Papele and Maria Papele, and her great-granddaughter Trinity Rose Papele, her precious love.
Florence will be missed by all.
