Debbie Trail Giffone, granddaughter of Justina Ambruso Graziadei, sent me several great family photographs. This is one of them. It shows her, at a young age, with a pixie haircut, in the midst of several male relatives, all uncles and cousins. It was taken in the basement of their home in Whitestone, NY in the early 1960’s at some family gathering, perhaps the confirmation of her sister Laura.
The men surrounding little Debbie are, from left to right are: John Angiulli, Diana’s son; Little Gerard Bruno, Debbie’s first cousin and son of Isabella Graziadei Bruno; Fred Tedeschi, husband of Esther Ambruso, Nick’s daughter; Dante Saraco, son of Sylvia Ambruso Saraco; and Vince Angiulli, John’s father.
Does anyone have any family stories to share about these people? I’d be willing to bet that there are enough stories about Dante to fill volumes. Send me your story.
