Nunziata “Nancy” (Iapichello) Zocco, age 81 departed this life at 1:30 AM May 3, 2023. She is now ascending to Heaven to be with our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Nancy was an extremely hard working determined, Sicilian immigrant. A very compassionate, generous, accepting, giving and kind soul. Nancy was a seamstress by trade where she was employed by Pendleton Woolen mills for 30+ years of loyal service. Nancy was also employed by Saint Joe Villa where she was a dietary aid and a care giver for 20+ years. Nancy loved caring for people, she would bring a smile to whoever she met, a genuinely kind woman, mother, grandmother, and friend. We will greatly miss her humor, warmth, kindness, and smile.

    The first thing that comes to mind when I think about Nunziata was her incredible spirit of love, she lit up a room and her presence was always generous, authentic and incredibly sweet. She made me smile and laugh in ways only Nunziata could. She loved her children with all of her heart and soul and was the kind of mother that was unconditionally supportive. She raised her children to be strong, independent, respectful and loving adults. A lifelong friend of our family she wouldn’t let too much time go by without calling and her visits were unforgettable. She was a light in this world and she is now an eternal light embraced in Christ’s glory. You will be missed beautiful Nunziata and I will forever be grateful for your open arms throughout my childhood, the incredible influence you had on me and the memories cherished always. My deepest condolences.

    Nunziatina was a beautiful person inside and out. I remember when I was little sitting on her lap playing bingo in my Aunt Rosetta basement. She was fun, loving and kind, always with a smile on her face. She was my Mom Maria Bellinghiere best friend. I hope you are both reunited now playing Bingo in heaven and eating biscotti!!!

    How can one say or describe the pain one feels when you lose your mother? This is truly the deepest heartache and I know all to well what it feels like. I have so many fond memories of your beautiful mom laughing and joking with our mom. Her smile, her sense of humor when we were together is unforgettable. I want you to know we are here for you. We are praying that God will wrap his arms around you and your family and you will feel his love and comfort. May God Bless you and your family richly through this most difficult time. Love you dearly.
