Beatrice LoFaso of Warwick entered into rest peacefully on Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019 at the age of 92.
She was born in Marineo, Sicily, on Jan. 11, 1927. She was the daughter of Giuseppe and Rosaria Sparacio and had two sisters: Concetta of Flushing, Queens, and Carmella of Salt Point.
Beatrice was marred to John LoFaso and had four daughters: Patrice LoFaso Fernandez, Geraldine Loggie, Leeann LoFaso and Barbara LoFaso Spreitzer. She had 11 grandchildren who were the joy of her life: Daniel, Raquel, Erin, Katie, Johnny, Dana, Lauren, Matthew, Megan, Candace and Carly.
Aside from her well-loved meatballs, she always kept her home-made Biscotti jar full for her family.
She lovingly welcomed her children and grandchildren whenever they would visit and traveled much in her earlier years with her husband John.
“Grandma Bea” as she was known, will be sorely missed by all who deeply loved her.
