Obituary of Irene Laquitara

Irene J. Laquitara (Zeoli) entered into eternal rest on Monday, October 22. At the time of her passing she was resident of Huntington Living Center in Waterloo, NY. While at Huntington she was surrounded by a gentle, caring and committed staff who made sure her needs were being met daily with dignity and warmth. Before residing at Huntington Irene had a remarkable group of care givers at her home. They were tremendously caring, thoughtful and dedicated. They made sure her life had meaning.

In honoring her wishes there will be no calling hours. A private service will be held for the family and burial will be at Glenwood at the discretion and privacy of the family.

If desired memorial contributions may be made to OLPP (St. Francis) at 130 Exchange St., Geneva, NY 14456 of which Irene was a lifelong parishioner.

Irene was born to Joseph and Genevieve Zeoli on March 8, 1925. She was a lifelong resident of Geneva. Irene worked at the Hulse Manufacturing Plant, Sampson Naval Base and retired from Zoto's International after an extended work history there. Irene enjoyed cooking but especially loved to bake and was famous for her pineapple squares, walnut cups as well as her scrumptious pizzelles. Irene also loved going to the Racino in Canandaigua, NY where she and Bill would test their luck as often as they could. They were also the yearly hosts for the Easter holiday dinner. Lots of food and lots of family.
