Lena DiGiore (nee Manna), 96, a resident of Riverside for 60 years, died peacefully in her sleep on April 30, 2020.
Ms. DiGiore worked as a bookkeeper, proudly retiring from the job at the age of 85. She was an avid reader, loved to cook, decorate her home, play cards and, most importantly, spend time with her family and friends.
She took pride in her ensembles, and she never left her house without her lipstick on and her hair perfectly coiffed.
Ms. DiGiore was the wife of 64 years of the late William; the mother of Dennis (Lu) DiGiore and Janet Anderson; the grandmother of Jennifer, Jillian and Charise; the great grandmother of Anthony; and the sister of Marie Fonseca and the late Cosmo Manna and late Lucille Harris.
Private services have been held, followed by entombment at Queen of Heaven Mausoleum in Hillside.
Ivins/Moravecek Funeral Home, Riverside, handled arrangements.
