Carmela La Russa Fitzgerald Obituary

Carmela 'Millie' Mary Fitzgerald will forever be remembered as the bedrock of her family and community. She died peacefully at her home on July 6th, 2024 at the age of 85. She was born and raised in Brooklyn with her brother Phil and went on to graduate from St. John's University.


Millie's professional life was highlighted by successful careers in real estate, civil service, and the law. In her free time she dedicated herself to countless volunteer opportunities with the Harrison and Westchester County Democratic parties. Millie was a long-time parishioner of St. Gregory the Great in Harrison and Our Lady of Sorrows in White Plains, where she was proud to be a Eucharistic Minister.


An avid reader, Millie always kept a stack of books on her coffee table and will remain the reigning Fitzgerald Scrabble champion. A woman of strong faith, she loved nothing more than doting on her family and making all those around her feel loved and taken care of. Later in life, she found her zeal for traveling, making numerous visits to Hawaii, Alaska, Italy, and the American Southwest.


Preceded by her son Philip and husband of 55 years Al, Millie is survived by her two sons Albion James III and Timothy Patrick, six grandchildren, and one great-grandson.


A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Sorrows R.C. Church, 920 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains on Friday, August 16th at 10:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Siena House (www.sienahouseshelter.org).
