Mrs. Armanino was the greatest of the Greatest Generation! God Bless her. I remember Joe rode us kids on a field trip when I was I about 5th grade at All Souls.

I was so sorry to hear of Leonore’s passing. I have fond memories of her growing up with my Aunt Rose and Nonnie Tillie. I had the opportunity to visit her prior to covid and enjoyed my time with her. She always had a smile and warm hug and she will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

OH Huggie, as my dad were call her. What better word for Leanore? As soon as she saw you her arms opened to hug you. It was a joy to live across the street from Leanore and her family for 10 years and to have known her practically all my life. A true lady, a true pillar and look up “kind soul” in a dictionary and I’m quite sure you’ll find a picture of Leanore there. I know it was her time and now she has gone to a better place, but I will still miss her and always remember her. Love to all her family.
