Lucy moved from Staten Island, NY to Tarpon Springs, FL in 1982.
One of her fondest memories was traveling to Italy with her sister Vera at the age of 18 to explore her parents heritage. Her favorite saying was “una volta vista la costa di Amalfi puoi morire “.
Lucy’s favorite pastime was going to the beach to put her feet in the sand. She loved cooking (especially Italian food) and listening to her favorite crooners on her CD’s. She was immensely proud of her children and grandchildren and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories.
Lucia (Lucy) T Robusto
