Tribute & Message From The Family


SOLLENA, Pietrina (Pietra) age 86, Born February 15, 1933 in Partinico, Sicily to Salvatore DiPace and Marianna DiPace (nee Vitale). Beloved wife of the late Leonardo. Dearest mother of Andrea "Andy" (Vicky) Sollena and Francesca "Fran" (Matthew) DePalma. Proud and loving grandmother of Georgette, Ronnie, Jr.(Nicole), Patrick, Andrew and Christopher. Dear great grandmother of Genevieve. Devoted to her Godmother, Beata Pina Suriano, who was a very close life-long role model and mentor. Pietrina was a founding member of Figli di Maria. Devoted to Madonna del Ponte of Partinico and San Giuseppe of Partinico. She also loved to cook and kept her family full of delicious pasta and meats - with a smile, some say "over-fed".
