Find a Grave. My grandparents died three months apart with Erminia passing away first in October 1974 at 62 years of age of Leukemia and Ernesto in January 1975, at 69 of a brain tumor. In spite of this, most of the family believes he actually died of a broken heart - who am I to disillusion them?
My grandparents were married for 44 years and had 4 children together although only three lived. They married in Italy and eventually moved to Yonkers New York where they remained until their deaths.
