Vincenza (Vinnie) Helen DeMartino lived 100 happy and joyous years. Born in Brooklyn on September 18, 1919 to Maria and Joseph LoFaro, she grew up with a large family of 7 siblings: her twin sister Grace, Ann, Mae, Dominic, Frank, John, and David. She leaves behind Ann and Mae. She married Nicholas DeMartino and later made her home on Long Island. Vinnie was a devout catholic; as a parishioner at Our Lady of Mt Carmel, she regularly attended Sunday mass. Vinnie leaves us with fond memories of her love of music, playing artists like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, or Italian Opera classics for her grandchildren.
Vinnie is survived by her 3 daughters; Emily, Jane, and Maria, and their families; 6 grand children; Clifton, Lauren, Frankie, Meghan, Glen-Luke, and Juliet, and 5 great grand children; Noah, Caleigh, DeLaney, Leo, and Aidan.
Vinnie lost her life to CoVID-19; in lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the relief fund for others impacted by the pandemic: https://covid19responsefund.org/.
A memorial service to celebrate Vinnie's life will be planned at a later date.
In the words of Juliet Middendorf, Vinnie's granddaughter:
"This is my grandma, Vincenza. She lived 100 years on this earth with us, that I’m very grateful for, especially because I know how rare that is. She was feisty as anything, always made us laugh, and she stood at a whopping 4’9 probably. We had this thing with each other where I would say I love you and then she would always say I love you more. That was the last thing she said to me last week and I hope I never ever forget that. The reason for her passing was because of the virus, so if anyone needed a reminder to check up on their family more, here it is. Love you more Grandma"
