Auntie, as Antonette was known to her nieces and nephews, worked to save money to get her younger brother and sister out of an Italian orphanage where they were placed after the untimely deaths of their parents in 1924.

She remained a role model for them and surrogate mother figure for them for the rest of their lives.
