Obituary of Pieranna M. Castelli D'Ambrosio

The embodiment of love, compassion and generosity.


On October 5th 2020 Pieranna D’Ambrosio passed away suddenly at the age of 74. She was born in Rome, Italy on July 9th, 1946. During her childhood, she moved to the United States but never lost her love for her home country and visited as often as she could.

She is the loving mother of her only son Frank D’Ambrosio. She lives on in the hearts of her loving son, her brother Peter Castelli, her sister Vilma Bua and the Bua family, the Chalker family and the Long family.

Pieranna loved her home, antiques, classic movies and music. Pieranna was always eager to learn and loved watching videos on cooking and travel. She was a vivid animal lover, and spent most of her free time cooking for friends and family. She wished to see and taste as much of the world as she could. She experienced all of her passions with her son, Frank.

Her work ethic and dedication as a mother were indominable and she would stop at nothing to provide for her only son. She would grasp at any opportunity to advance herself in various fields such as real estate, technology and vehicles. She presently worked as a school crossing guard.

Pieranna’s love of life lives on through her son.
