Olga Caruso Vinciquerra “Nana,” of Syracuse, New York, passed away on February 2, 2022. Born in Calabria, Italy to Anthony and Josephine Caruso, Olga immigrated to the United States at the age of two. A lifelong resident of Syracuse, Olga attended Central High School. Upon graduation she was employed by the United States Department of War as a stenographer. Through the years, she held a variety of positions including working as a cosmetician at Chappell’s Department Store, a claims adjuster at Excelsior Insurance, and a library clerk for the Onondaga County Public Library System. Olga was married to the love of her life, Anthony J. Vinciquerra, for 42 years until his passing in 1990. She was an avid reader, a phenomenal cook, and was viewed by many as the matriarch of the family.

In addition to her husband, Olga was predeceased by her daughter Jacalyn Vinciquerra Stewart, sisters Esther Spadaro and Glorya Pascarella, and son-in law James Wescott.
