Obituary for Lillian F. Rocco

Lillian Rocco passed away at the age of 98 on August 26, th in the comfort of her husband Sam’s loving arms, with whom she shared her life for 72 years. She was predeceased by her daughter Theresa White, and her Grandson Anthony Rocco

She was the adored mother of Janet Smith, George and his wife Wanda, Kathy {Rina} Young and her husband Greg, Sam and his wife Ann, Robert, Mary Selser and her husband Jay, Leila McNeff and her husband Jay, and Alaine Cipriano and her husband Jimmy.
She was the loving grandmother to 17 children and 5 great grandchildren, all of whom, along with their parents, family friends, and co-workers benefited from the wonderful cookies and other special foods from her kitchen. Lillian was also known to some of us as the cookie angel.

Her belief in the power of faith and the blessings of angels was something she shared with everyone in her life. She received great joy in handing out angel pins to caregivers and strangers she met along the way. She was loving and giving, asking nothing in return. She happily donated to many charities around the world, with a special spot for children in her heart. She had a warm and spontaneous smile that will be missed.
Although she may not be here in body, she remains in the heart of all who knew her. YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE…
