Olga Palma Bartolotti
Olga Palma Marucci Bartolotti, 101, passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 7, 2023, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on April 8, 1922, to Matthew and Filomena Campanaro Marucci. Olga married Joseph Bartolotti on October 25, 1947, a union which lasted until his passing in 1989.
Olga was a hard and conscientious worker her entire life, beginning after her graduation from high school and sometimes holding two jobs simultaneously. She balanced taking care of her family and working full-time perfectly, ending her career in 1983 as a finance supervisor at Griffis Air Force Base.
Olga's professional career was matched by her exemplary cooking and baking skills. She was an avid reader and an accomplished knitter as well. Olga's true joy, however, was her family, of which she was so proud.
Olga is survived by her daughters and their spouses, Bonita and Thomas Guiliano and Dianne and Peter Blake, her grandchildren Jennifer and Jason Nasto, Kathryn and Ryan Gattari, Laura and Eric Noble, Margaret Blake, Ellen and Brian Chase, Louise and Edward Tai, and Alex and Lauryn Blake, and her great grandchildren Joseph and Julianna Nasto, Ryan, Victor, and Carl Gattari, Claire and Jonah Chase, Jillian and Robert Tai, and Lillian, Madelyn, and Ellie Blake. She is also survived by her sisters Yolanda Facciolo, Faith Hitchings, and Agatha DeBella, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Olga was preceded in death by her brothers Louis and Matthew Marucci, and her sisters Italia Pour, Mafalda Palombi, Flora Mikulin, and Josephine Cecilia.
The family would like to thank the staff at Bethany Gardens for their compassionate and loving care of Olga. They made her journey home so much easier.
Olga will be greatly missed
