The wife of the late Salvatore DeMattio was born May 18, 1929 in Bridgeport and was the daughter of the late Joseph and Mary (Hegi) Carbone.

She loved nature, shopping and traveling. She was extremely talented artistically. She enjoyed painting and numerous craft projects. Her family and role as a mother and grandmother was the most important thing to her.

She spent countless hours with her grandchildren reading or telling them stories, going on nature walks, attending school or sporting events. She cared deeply for those people in her life. Her warm smile and sweet disposition will be greatly missed

She is survived by three sons, Ralph DeMattio and his wife Annette, Joseph DeMattio and Michael DeMattio, one daughter, Kathy DeMattio-Pappas and her husband Chris, eight grandchildren. In addition to her husband she was predeceased by one daughter, Sally Ann DeMattio.
