Fenisia 'Noni' Eusebi Pascucci was born in 1898 in Persaro, Italy to Girolamo and Maria 'Dionisi' Eusebi. She had brothers Sante, and Luigi, both of whom remained in Italy, Delio, who died during WW II fighting in Russia, and Luciano who is also buried in St. Michael's Cemetery.
She immigrated to the United States at the age of 22 aboard the Ship 'Duca Degli Abruzzi' which docked at Ellis Island on January 25, 1921.
She met and married Giuseppe 'Joe' Pascucci. They moved to Huntington, Massachusetts where their son, Augusto 'Gus' was born. They then moved to Springfield, Massachusetts where their two daughters, Mary and Dorina 'Doris' were born.
Both Fenisia and Giuseppe wanted to become Americans and insisted that their children speak to them in English until they became proficient. Ultimately they both became naturalized American citizens.
Noni (which means grandmother in Italian) worked at local factories in addition to being a homemaker, and a phenomenal cook making her own fresh macaroni noodles from scratch on a very large board with a baseball bat-like rolling pin. She butchered her own fowl making delicious roast chicken and rich soups.
Her husband predeceased her in 1963.
Her brother, Luciano Eusebi, is also buried in St. Michael's Cemetery. His Find a Grave memorial page can be found here:
One of her grandchildren is also buried in St. Michael's. His memorial page can be found here:
Joseph L. Pascucci.
At the time of her passing, she left her three children, Gus and his wife, Winifred 'Winnie', living in Perth, Western Australia, Mary and her husband, Tony Adamski, Doris and her husband Frank Conti, and loving grandchildren, Cheryl (Pascucci) Milici, also of Australia, Janice 'Jan' (Conti) Hugger, Frank Conti, David Conti, Joseph Conti, Karen (Adamski) Wroblewski and Frank Adamski, and many, great grandchildren.
This sweet, demure and loving woman is greatly missed by all who had the good fortune to know her.
