May 27, 1933 - February 1, 2022
Carmela Gualtieri passed away peacefully at home on February 1, 2022 at the age of 88. She was preceded in death by her parents Antoinette (Zinni) Gualtieri and Joseph Gualtieri, three of her siblings Teresa (Gualtieri) Ianni, Donato Gualtieri and D. Jean (Gualtieri) Burns. She leaves behind six siblings, Elizabeth (Sister Carmen) Gualtieri, Salvatore (Patricia) Gualtieri, Nicholas (Janet) Gualtieri, Albert (Mary) Gualtieri, Carmen Gualtieri and Paul (Michael) Gualtieri. She was known as “Aunt Carm” to several nieces and nephews, Rebecca and Andrew Burns, Joseph and David Ianni, Nicholas, Andrea, Joseph and Daniel Gualtieri, Mark and Deanna Gualtieri, Cara and Albert Gualtieri, Michael, Donna and John Gualtieri. Carmela was born in Batavia NY and lived most of her life on Morton Avenue with the exception of a several year career interval working at the Derby Pharmacy in Derby NY. She served selflessly many years as a member of the St. Jerome Hospital guild. Carmela found particular enjoyment staying in touch with and sharing a meal with old friends from high school, relatives and members of the Italian community of the historic St. Anthony Catholic Church in Batavia. She remained active in parish activities even through those more challenging transitional times. Carmela served as primary care giver to our mother ensuring her comfort during her aging years. Soon after the death of our mother she took on the role of family matriarch and her home continued to frequently be the center of family gatherings and focal point of celebrating our family history. She will be remembered for her generosity, strong personality. independence, compassion, those moments of sage wisdom, strong will and dare I say occasional stubbornness. Carmela's services will be held privately at a later date and she will be laid to rest in St. Joseph's Cemetery, Batavia. Memorials may be made to Sisters of Mercy, 625 Abbott Road, Buffalo, NY 14220, www.sistersofmercy.org/donate.
