Amelia DiBartolo, A Dynamic Individual With a Strong Love for Family, Dies at 77
Amelia DiBartolo passed suddenly on April 13, 2021. Amelia was born in the Bronx to Salvatore and Rose Tassone DiBartolo on November 24, 1943.
Amelia, known as Amy to her friends and “Aunt Mia” to her nephew, three nieces and thirteen grandnieces and nephews, was something of a trailblazer in the family. Living a cosmopolitan lifestyle in NYC, she held a variety of banking positions and relished the relationships she developed with her many high-powered clients during the personal banking heyday of the 1960’s and 70’s.
Among Amy’s many passions was travel; she loved experiencing new places, visiting Europe, Hawaii, and the Caribbean. She was also an ardent consumer of QVC and HSN, enjoying the experience of trying, and giving as gifts, new or unique items. Amy often dedicated her time to her lifelong parish at St. Theresa and thoroughly enjoyed volunteering for the annual feast. But her greatest joy and privilege, she often said, was closer to home: her loving family.
Amy will be sorely missed by her friends, family and all who knew her. She is survived by her sister Sandra Fanzini; brother Anthony DiBartolo and his wife Mary Ann. She is also survived by her nephew Louis Fanzini and his wife Joanne, niece Rosemarie Fanzini DiBernardi and her husband Peter, niece Jennifer Fanzini Farinacci and her husband Chris, and niece Elena DiBartolo Irving and her husband Chris. In addition to her parents she was predeceased by her beloved brother-in-law, John Fanzini.
The family is receiving visitors from 2pm to 6pm on Friday April 16th at the Ralph Giordano Funeral Home on Crosby Ave in the Bronx.A Mass of the Christian burial will take place at St. Theresa church on Saturday April 17 at 9:45 AM. Entombment will be at Ascension Cemetery in Monsey, NY.
In lieu of flowers Amy would have preferred donations in her name to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital or a charity of your choice.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Ralph Giordano Funeral Home.
