Virginia Anne (DiFlorio) Paduana, 98, passed away on Thursday at home with her loving family by her side. She was born in Syracuse, NY to the late Vincent and Pasqualina DiFlorio of San Pietro Infine, Naples, Italy. A devout catholic, Virginia was a longtime communicant of both St. Peter’s and St. Daniel’s Church. A life resident of Syracuse, she retired from LC Smith & Corona after 13 years before becoming a homemaker. Virginia loved her family and was an outstanding cook and baker. She was known for her hospitality and famous cookie trays on every occasion. She had a way of making everyone feel special and so loved, which made the holidays and every day memorable. She loved her trips to the casino and had a very lucky hand in poker. Virginia’s compassion, memory, and legacy will live on in all who knew and loved her. She was predeceased by her husband Anthony J. Paduana, in 2010; son, Vincent Paduana; sisters, Giovanina DiFlorio, Alessandra Natale; brothers, Angelo (Angie), Guido, Henry (Esther), and Albert (Connie) DiFlorio; sister-in-law, Rosemary Paduana; and granddaughter, Melissa Paduana.
