After graduating from St. Michael's High
School,  I went to work at Colgate's in
Jersey City.   I met Angelo Giammarino
there, and married him at St. John's
Church on April 27, 1957.  Together we
raised five beautiful children in our
South Plainfield home.  Since the death
of my husband 16 years ago, I have
become even more involved in my
church.   For the past 15 years, I have
served as a Eucharistic minister in
church, and to the parish's homebound.  
My faith has always been a very
important part of my life,  but I have
come a long way in my walk with Jesus
and Mary.  I find my strength in my
faith, and consider myself happy, and
content with my life and blessed with
my children and eleven wonderful
