We will all miss her. God bless her. I will always remember her as feisty, and funny. She had a fabulous sense of humor, would laugh and giggle at her antics, or yours. She had an infectious laugh and a delightful giggle. Most of all she was well known for loving her large family, and treasure every one. Warm, loving and always welcoming with open arms, a hug, a kiss, and a big smile. I will miss her so much.

Aunt Bella always had mischief in her smile and in her heart. She had her own Italian nickname forme. I've never really learned its true meaning. The antics have probably already begun in Heaven with her siblings. Missing her from Florida.

Aunty Bella always made me feel special! No matter how far apart the lapses of time between visits, she welcomed me as if no time passed.. she had a flair for fashion that kept her always looking up to date and trendy. Aunty was so lovely with those gorgeous cheekbones and beautiful twinkling eyes..her great laugh and eagerness to debate were part of what made her so fun to be with! Everyone felt connected to her.. when my husband tom heard the news, he said,"That is very sad. She was a wonderful person and always made me feel like a big part of the Coraccio family. This world will miss her passion and life. I'm truly very sad about that news." I know her family, and my Dear Uncle John must be grieving terribly now and our hearts are with them..our deepest sympathy, and Lots of Love, Karen (coraccio) and Tom Meer and Family

I will miss Auntie Bella very much. She was fun, stylish always praised my husband. I loved it when Uncle John and she visit visited my homes and I would meet them all the time at Market Basket in Ashland. I was happy to see her last week. Such a strong woman. She is in Heaven now. God Bless Auntie Bella. Geraldine

My heart is heavy as I think of Bella and the blessing she was to me. Bella taught me to do what makes me happy and how to make real Italian sauce!!! Alway's wanted to stay on her good side (which I did), she could alway's make me smile, both John and Bella treated me as their own. Thank you Bella you'll always be in my heart "Gram" Love you Beth

I loved reading the comments from others describing my aunt in such loving and accurate ways. How could you not love her?! She and my dad loved to joust with one another, and she usually left my dad speechless. No one intimidated her. She'd take on all comers-but always with love and a wink of the eye. She never took herself-or anyone else-too seriously. She loved life, people, and especially her family. She always wanted them to be close and caring and to look after one another. I hope she gets her wish.
