Elisa Tammaro Obituary

Elisa Tammaro, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, passed away peacefully on October 17, 2023, at the age of 82. Elisa was born on July 28, 1941, in Mirabella-Eclano, Italy, to Giacomo and Virginia Rosa. She immigrated to America in 1961, embracing a new life full of dreams and possibilities.

Elisa shared 57 beautiful years of marriage with her devoted husband, Nunziante Tammaro, and their love remained a testament to enduring commitment. They joyously celebrated their anniversary on October 15, just two days before her passing.

A skilled seamstress for over two decades, Elisa dedicated her talents to her craft and later worked at United Airlines for 15 years, leaving a mark of professionalism and hard work. Her dedication to her family was unwavering, and her sons, Gino Tammaro of East Boston and ClaudioTammaro and his wife Kristine of Loveland, Ohio, cherished the delicious meals she prepared, especially her artichokes, tiramisu, and apple pie.

Elisa found immense joy in spending time with her grandchildren, Nicolas and Claudia Tammaro of Loveland, Ohio, delighting in their laughter and milestones. She adored her family and found comfort in their love.

Elisa was preceded in death by her dear siblings, Giuseppe Rosa, Mario Rosa, and Filomena Guarino, but she leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories for her surviving nieces and nephews.

Elisa had a passion for life that shone through in her love of playing Bingo with friends, trying her luck with her favorite numbers, and savoring moments over espresso coffee. She enjoyed taking long walks with her husband, relishing the beauty of each day.

As we bid farewell to Elisa Tammaro, we celebrate a life well-lived, a woman deeply loved, and memories that will forever echo in our hearts. She will be remembered for her warmth, generosity, and unwavering love for family and friends.
