Beyond her professional life, Georgianna had an extraordinary talent for cooking, delighting her loved ones with her Sunday dinners and culinary creations. She possessed an adventurous spirit, finding joy in traveling, especially to the beach and amusement parks, where the thrill of the rides captivated her. Her luck at the casino was legendary, but her greatest fortune lay in the love and laughter she shared with her family and friends.

Christmas and Halloween held special places in her heart, as she poured her creativity into making each holiday magical for her children and grandsons. For 13 years, she resided in Clifton Park, NY, where she dedicated herself to her grandsons, fostering a bond that would last a lifetime. Georgianna is preceded in death by her beloved husband Nello, her parents Josephine and Luigi, and her sister Connie DeCusio. She is survived by her daughters, Nicole Chiarella of Weston, FL, and Charmaine Catania and her spouse John of Peabody, MA. Georgianna adored her five grandsons, Tony, Joseph, John, Anthony, and Dominic, and took immense pride in their accomplishments. She is also survived by her nephew Tom Ellis, his wife Adrianna, and their daughter Lia, who she considered her own children and grandchild, respectively.
