She is survived by her son, Vincent Durante and his wife Carol of West Chester, PA; by her beloved grandchildren, Mark, Diane, and Andrew (Laurie); by her sister, Dina in Buenos Aires, Argentina; and by cousins, nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be from 2-4 & 7-9 pm Friday March 2nd at the Dooley Colonial Home 455 Westfield Ave., Westfield. The funeral mass will begin at 11am Saturday in Holy Trinity R.C. Church in Westfield.
