Ida Cedroni, Born January 14, 1927 in Ceprano, Italy to Michele and Natalie Gianfermi. Lived her early life in a household of women strongly influenced by her loving grandmother. She survived the bombing of Casino in WWII by living in small caves in the mountainside. She arrived in Detroit in October 1947 and met the love of her life, Ernie Cedroni on the first evening in America. He was her base and gave her the confidence to succeed. She was his cheerleader and gave him encouragement to succeed. What a well suited pair. They raised two daughters together and were the backbone to a large extended family. Her talents were boundless. She kept an immaculate home, cooked fantastic dinners, baked and decorated bake goods, she was an extraordinary seamstress who enjoyed sewing dresses and coats for her daughters and suits for her dear Ernie. She made drapery for her homes and her daughters. She was an avid gardener who surprised us with a colorful bonanza of flowers throughout the summers. In her late 30s she decided to try painting canvases with oil, acrylics, and watercolors. She sold many of her pieces and many adorn homes of family and friends. In her 40s, she developed an interest in golf and most mornings would find her on the course perfecting her game. She loved entertaining and spending time with friends. Her joy in life exploded when her grandchildren began to arrive. Pasta dinners at Nana's were always a special event. She thrived on all their accomplishments. She was a proud wife, mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, mother-in-law, godmother, and friend who loved to encourage you to do your best. Her faith was very important to her. Her children and grandchildren were know to ask Nana to say a special prayer for their intentions since she seemed to know the most direct route. She is survived by her daughters, Linda (Jim) Borowski and Geri (Louis) Gasperut; grandchildren, Mary (Steve) Wilusz, Suzanne (Shannon) Hladky, Daniel (Meghanne) Gasperut, Adrian (Kevin) Krause, Allison (Marco) Capote; great-grandchildren, Claire, Patrick Wilusz, Henry, Lucy, William Hladky, Cameron Krause, Mila Capote; and her sister, Assunta (Jay) Tuthill; and sister-in-laws, Mary (Syl) DeLellis and Antoinette (John) Gianfermi brother-in-law , Peter Cedroni and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by husband, Ernest; sisters, Elena Gianfermi and Frances DelGreco. She loved and was loved by many. May she rest in God's presence.
