Ruth Rose 11242022 Salvatore Joseph 01202021 DiFazio Obituary

Cassidy-Flynn Funeral Directors is honored to serve the family of Ruth Rose DiFazio who passed away on November 24, 2022 and Salvatore Joseph DiFazio January 20 2021 Ruth Rose (Sicilia) DiFazio passed away on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2022, in Danbury, Connecticut. She was born on May 26, 1924 in the Bronx, New York. Her parents were Theresa Mogavero and Salvatore Sicilia. Ruths father was a proud immigrant who, as a teenager, left his home in Sicily for the promise of opportunity in America. Her mother was born in the Bronx, as her parents came to America as young children with their parents, for that same promise. When Ruths parents married they raised her and her sister in the Bronx, and then moved on to Parkchester. Ruths fathers love of driving and exploring the country roads led to taking his family on frequent visits to the festivities at the Valhalla Dam. One day, in the early 1950s, he discovered Mt. Kisco, New York, and built his house . And the rest is history! Ruth was a woman who showed her strength and love in all she did throughout her life. Her 98 years of life were filled with many Blessings and momentous occasions. Ruth was a devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great- grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She met the love of her life, Salvatore DiFazio in 1943, a few months before he left for his service in World War II. When Sal returned home in December 1945, they became engaged and then married on July 21, 1946. They were devoted to each other for 74 years. Sadly, he passed in January 2021. Ruth and Sal moved from Parkchester to Mt. Kisco in 1956. They made Mt. Kisco their home for 45 years. During 25 of those years Ruth worked for the Bedford Central School District. She worked in Mt. Kisco Elementary School, starting as a part time aide, and then moving on to working in the front office. She was the first to greet parents and children as they entered the school. Ruth loved her work, and enjoyed all the colleagues and families she connected with throughout the years. Ruth had many favorite stories to tell! She always told the story of the day she was having lunch with friends in Times Square on August 15, 1945. The day WW II ended. She was among the crowd in the Square on that very special day! Another story Ruth always liked to tell, of memorable occasions of her younger days, was about going to Yankee Stadium for their home games on Tuesdays Ladies Day, for 10 cents a ticket! She was an avid Yankee fan all of her life! Ruth is survived by her children, Loretta (Francis), Michael (Nancy), and Thomas (Jim). Also surviving are her grandchildren, Robert, and Julie (Craig), Michael, and Lori (Jason), and Thomas (Elana), Dayna, and Daniel. Ruth was blessed to share many years with her great-grandchildren, Leila, Jackson, Sadie, Faith, Dakota, and most recently Micaela. She is also survived by her brother-in-law Anthony DiFazio, and many nieces and nephews. As mentioned before, Ruth was pre-deceased by her devoted husband of 74 years, Salvatore DiFazio. Also, Ruth was pre-deceased by her parents, and her beloved sister Margaret. Sal has been waiting in Heaven for Ruth to be by his side , and now they are together. We invite family, and friends to gather with us on Friday December 9, 2022 at 9AM at Cassidy Flynn Funeral Home, and then join us at 10AM for the Celebration of Life Mass for both Ruth and Sal at St. Francis of Assisi Church. In Lieu of Flowers, kindly consider a contribution to St. Judes Childrens Hospital or Tunnel 2 Towers. Thank You. Salvatore Joseph DiFazio passed away on January 20, 2021, in Naples, Florida. Sals life was filled with so many blessings for 96 years. He was a special man whose family was the most important part of his life. Sal was a devoted son, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. Sal was born in the Bronx, NY on March 9, 1924. His parents were Marianna Liosi and Benedetto DiFazio, proud immigrants from Sicily, who married and raised their family in the Bronx, NY. Sal was an Army veteran of World War II, and served as a Medic in the 85th Division 339th Infantry, 1943-1945. After proudly serving our country, he returned home and married his beloved Ruth Rose Sicilia on July 21, 1946. They were devoted to one another for 74 years. After spending the first few years of their marriage working and starting a family in Parkchester, the Bronx, NY, Sal so happily moved his growing family to the small town of Mt. Kisco, NY in 1956. This special town was home for 45 years. He was a daily commuter to NYC with many others from this town. Sal was a member of the Mt. Kisco family of St. Francis of Assisi Church, a member of the Sisqua Council of the Knights of Columbus, and a member of the American Legion Post 136. Sal is survived by his devoted wife Ruth, their children Loretta (Francis), Michael (Nancy), and Thomas. Also surviving are his grandchildren Robert, Julie (Craig), Michael, Lori (Jason), Thomas (Lana), Dayna, and Daniel. Sal was blessed to share many years with his great-grandchildren, Leila, Jackson, Sadie, Faith, and Dakota. He is also survived by his brother Anthony DiFazio, and many nieces and nephews. Sal was pre-deceased by his parents, his sisters Betty Buatti and Florence DiSalvo, and his nephew Anthony Buatti. Sal will be waiting in Heaven to have his loving wife Ruth by his side. At that time they will be joined together again and a Mass of celebration will be held at St. Francis of Assisi Church, and burial at St. Francis Cemetery, back home as they both have always said, in Mt. Kisco, NY. We invite family and friends to gather with us on Friday, December 9, 2022 at 9AM at Cassidy-Flynn Funeral Home, and then join us for the Celebration of Life Mass for both Sal and his wife Ruth at 10Am at St. Francis of Assisi Church.
