Virginia was born on November 2, 1929 to the parents of Frank and Jennie Giudice in Brooklyn, NY. She married Michael Dalessio, her soul mate and it was a match made in heaven. Michael, also from Brooklyn, was the fruit and vegetable delivery boy for Virginiaa??s mom, Jennie a?? Michael was the apple of her eye! Michael and Virginia were married for 48 years before Michael passed away in 2001. They are now together in paradise.
Virginia now joins her parents and her older brothers in heaven, Dominick, Frank, Michael, John and Anthony Giudice, and many others who she loved. You could never say anything bad about her brothers! She was the first girl born after five brothers a?? thus, she was their doll and everyone knows her and called her Dolly a?? Dolly Dalessio.
Being the caretaker for her parents, Frank and Jennie, she never stopped caring and giving back. She never wanted to see anyone suffer and helped everyone. She loved to cook and always enjoyed giving family and friends food to take home. Her hobby was to shop a?? to go food shopping with her daughter and to shop for others. Virginia enjoyed going to her sona??s country club and she connected with so many who simply adored her. She was so proud of her children.
She suffered for many years with heart conditions, but she was a fighter and she never wanted anyone to know she was in pain. She loved the old neighborhood a?? Lefferts Avenue in Brooklyn, and always enjoyed getting together with her cousins in Hackensack, NJ as a child.
Virginia never wanted anyone to go out of their way for her a?? she wanted to do the heavy lifting but because of her lovable disposition, it was hard not to give her the world.
She loved her nieces and nephews a?? the Giudicea??s, the Dalessioa??s, the Prinzoa??s, and of course Maryann and Tommy Gambino. There were so many and they were all like her children. She enjoyed talking every day to her life-long friend Nettie a?? one of her bridesmaids.
In lieu of flowers, the children of Virginia request you make a donation in her honor to the American Heart Association of Long Island, or North Shore University Hospital Cardiology in Manhasset, NY.
