Aged: 91
Lucy was 91 years old and passed away on May 27th, 2021 surrounded by her loved ones. She was born in Brooklyn, New York to Leonardo and Matilda (Palmeri) Robusto. She graduated from Bay Ridge high school and worked for many years as a secretary for Steuben Glass in Manhattan and later on Wall Street.Lucy married Charles Fontana in May 1953 and raised two sons, Charles (Tarpon Springs) and Michael (deceased, 2019) in Brooklyn and Staten Island. She has five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. She was predeceased by two brothers (Anthony, John) and one sister (Vera) and survived by sisters Rita (Melbourne, FL) Matilda (New Port Richey, FL) and a brother Lenny ( Staten Island, NY) along with several nieces and nephews.

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.
