*************************************************

Grandma met Grandpa from France when she was visiting in France...they fell in love & married in France. They came to the USA settling in Washington DC (District of Columbia) and started a family.

She was beautiful, full of fun, very kind, gentle and we used to love watching wrestling on TV together...

Grandma always bought us gifts for our Birthdays and Holidays.

I also remember all of us going to the "White House" lawn searching for Easter Eggs each year. What fun!

Grandma, you were the very best grandmother in the world.
I love you...forever...your grandaughter...Susie

NOTE: Her mom (my GREAT GRANDMOTHER aged 40) Raffaela Ferraiolo Defeo b. 1882 d. 1922 is buried in the same Cemetery (Mount Olivet in Washing DC) as her Great Grandaughter Rosemary DiSandro......

My GREAT GRANDFATHER...Salvatore Samuell Defeo b.? d. 1937 Marsellia France, or LaChappelle Ardinnes, France...
