Beatrice "Bea" A. Vinciguerra, beloved widow of Stephen P. Vinciguerra Esq., and longtime Latham resident, passed away on Saturday, July 30th 2016 at the age of 92.

She was born in the little Village of Torrice, in the Province of Frosinone, Italy, on August 25th 1923.

After her mother died at an early age, she was raised by her grandmother, in Italy, until age 13, when she was sent to live with her aunt & uncle, Joseph and Minnie D'Amico in Whitehall, New York.

She was predeceased by them, as well as by her father, Angelo Vona; and her mother, Maria Caterina Costantini Vona; and as well as her sister, Leda Martino of Floral Park, NY.

While Bea was never employed outside the home in the traditional sense, she was always involved in the decision making of her husband's real estate ventures, and she managed many of their rental properties over the years.

She was a very active volunteer, organizing the altar decorations of St. Ambrose Church, especially for all of the liturgical holidays, and sewed many of the vestments and altar cloths.

St. Ambrose Church and School were very close to her heart, having been a devoted member of the parish since its early days.

She was a talented seamstress, and had a terrific eye for decor. She was also a prolific gardener, having gorgeous flower gardens at every home in which she lived, as well as amazing vegetable gardens.

From those gardens she made fabulous tomato sauces and eggplant dishes, and continued cooking for family events and celebrations well into her late 80's.

Entombment will be at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery in Whitehall, NY.
