Cecilia Menza (nee Mackena) passed away peacefully in her 98th year on Tuesday, December 22, 2020.
Cecilia closed the final chapter on her life peacefully on December 22, 2020. She lived Independently until her passing. Cecilia was generous, caring, and determined. Her love and dedication to her husband and sons was her focus. A close second, was her love of the arts. An accomplished painter and always up for excursions, Cecilia would look forward to the symphony and never missed an opportunity for visits to her favorite restaurants. With a fondness for classic movies that highlighted the Hollywood stars of the pre and post WWII era, she would regale you with actors and actresses names that often warranted a modern day check online to underscore her accuracy. Always spot on.
Cecilia's close knit, long standing group of NY friends and neighbors were always on her mind. They too, were her family and she would relish every opportunity to trade cards or phone calls to catch up. She loved them all

Mrs. Menza will be laid to rest with her beloved husband Peter who predeceased her on November 29, 1995 at Calverton National Cemetery in Calverton, New York.
