Antonietta Monaco Obituary

Antonietta Terlizzi Monaco was born in Orsara di Puglia, Italy, to the proud parents of Michele & Leonarda Terlizzi on August 18, 1932. She was the 2nd of four children (Donata, Antonietta, Antonio, & Michele). Antonietta was born into the Great Worldwide Economic Depression. Her family persevered and faced even more challenges in the coming World War. During this turbulent time, she completed Primary School and began a Seamstress Apprenticeship. Her skills were so admired that she shared her tradesmanship knowledge with the many future apprentices who respectfully called her "La Masta" (The Master Mentor). In 1951, Antonietta and and her 2 brothers moved to Mount Kisco NY in search of opportunity. On a vacation to Italy in 1956, she met and fell in love with Michele (Mike) Monaco. They married, moved to Mount Kisco, and had 3 children (Danny, Lucy, and Lenore). Antonietta was a "stay at home mom" and raised her children. She later worked for Curtis Instruments for almost 30 years. In her retirement, she helped to raise six grandchildren (Mike, Mark, Dominick, Matthew, Sophia, and Little Mike). Antonietta touched many lives with her generosity and loving demeanor. She had many friends and a rich full life. She also passed on her cooking skills and recipes to anyone interested in taking their cooking talents to the next level. In addition to her immediate family, she is leaving many nephews, nieces, and countless friends, cousins, and Campari.
