His great passions were family time, oil painting, music and travel. She created over 100 paintings in her lifetime and was able to attend her last art exhibition in July 2022, which was attended by her cherished family and friends. The four sisters have remained close and have traveled many miles to be together over the years.

She generously included everyone’s accomplishments and adventures. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Peter Lentini. She is survived by her four children, of whom she was so proud, Anne, Jeremy, John and Justin; three sisters, Janet Halle of West Newton, Sally Cull (her loving pen pal) of Belfair, WA, and Bonnie (Dev) Lemster of Greentree; and his sister-in-law, JoAnn Lentini of New York.
