Vincenzina Di Giovanni Cicale, 93, died Monday morning peacefully in her sleep. Her beloved husband, Louis “Ali” Cicale, died July 12, 1977.
Born in Sant. Eusanio Forconese, in the Abruzzo region of Italy, on June 5, 1924, she was the daughter of the late Antonio and Teresa Paolini Di Giovanni. After marrying her husband, she moved to Brooklyn, New York, where she lived in a close-knit community with her family and paisans from the old country. She worked as a seamstress before her retirement. Of strong Roman Catholic faith, she was a member of Divine Mercy Parish in the Minooka section of Scranton. Her favorite pastime was needle point and crocheting and her Italian “Abruzzese” cooking was in a class all alone. A die-hard New York Yankees fan, her longtime favorite player was Joe DiMaggio. After living most of her adult life in her beloved Brooklyn, she moved to the Scranton area to be closer to her family.
She is survived by her four sons, Alex Cicale and wife JoAnn of Saugerties, N.Y., Anthony Cicale and wife Patricia of Nevada, Las Vegas, Louis Cicale and wife Mary of Scranton, and Richard Cicale and wife Ruth of Seattle, Washington; six grandchildren, Alexis, Nick, William, Casey, Anthony and Suzannah; three great grandchildren, Christopher, Kristin and Nataleigh; and many nieces and nephews.
She was also preceded in death by her granddaughter, Kristin Cicale; four sisters; and a brother.
A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for Saturday at 11:00AM at Divine Mercy Parish, 312 Davis Street, Scranton, to be celebrated by Rev. Francis L. Pauselli, Pastor. Burial will follow at St. Mary Czestochowa Cemetery, Moosic. Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Saturday from 10:00AM until Mass at the church.
Arrangements under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
