October 2, 1933 ~ November 27, 2021

Christina Aiello, 88 passed away in her Manorville home, surrounded by her loving family on November 27th, 2021. She leaves behind her husband of 62 years, Frank Aiello, and children Denise Cataldo, Dennis & Debbie Aiello, Frank & Alice Aiello, and Christine & Bob Novak.
She also leaves behind ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. She joins in heaven her brother Larry, parents Mildred and Tony, and son in law Gary Cataldo. She was a colorful woman, the life of the party, and loved to travel. When not doting over her large family, Christina extended her knowledge and witty sense of humor, warming the hearts of all she met. A devout catholic, she gave her continued support, love, and time volunteering at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Island. She was known for her excellent culinary skills, making spreads for everyone. When not cooking, she could be found behind the register using only her brain to balance the till. She was affectionately known as Ethel, Bubbie, and Trouble. All who met her were touched by her beautiful soul and accepting nature; her presence will be missed. A true bookworm, finally resting in the “big library in the sky.”

  2. candle“Aunt Chris” was a character in every sense of the word. She was kind, wise and always funny. I’ll always remember her descriptions of making egg salad sandwiches at the shrine & giving away donated bread. She was a link to my mom because of the close, quirky friendship (and sisterhood) that they shared. I wish her and the Aiello family peace and will always remember her with a smile.

  3. candleI was so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Aiello. My heart breaks for her family. I am wishing you all peace and comfort during this difficult time.
