D'ISIDORI

Virginia A. D'Isidori (nee Murphy) passed away peacefully on January 17th, reuniting with her beloved husband Lou to whom she had been married for 53 years. Mom, Nana, Gin - our kind-hearted, gentle, thoughtful and constant supporter who adored and was the perfect partner to Lou. She was the rock of her family, a voice of reason, master planner, accomplished photographer, travel enthusiast, talented knitter, avid reader, line dancer, supporter of the Arts and creative cook. She taught herself Italian so she could actively engage with Lou's relatives in Italy during her family's annual summer vacations to San Benedetto. Her travel plans were top notch and enabled her entire family to explore the world. Always giving, she shared her travel knowledge by presenting travel forums at her local library, as well as supporting and volunteering at various local organizations to better the lives of children in the greater Cleveland area. Always the patient teacher, Gin would spend hours playing games, reading books, baking biscotti or lemon cake and teaching finger knitting to her grandchildren. Whether it was making toast or coq au vin, Nana did it best!
Virginia was born in Brooklyn, New York on September 27, 1941 and grew up in Manhasset on Long Island. She graduated from the College of New Rochelle with a degree in Education, received a Masters degree in Library Science and taught elementary school in Manhasset before meeting and marrying Lou in 1970. She raised their four children and worked as Lou's Office Manager at his dental office before moving to Broadview Heights, Ohio in 2003. Upon relocating to the MidWest, Virginia instantly became immersed in her community. For the last 2 1/2 years, Virginia called Regina Health Center her home, where she and Lou had volunteered for decades.
Virginia is survived by her four children Diane D'Isidori (Evan Hack), Justine Cody (Mark), Jennifer Vergilii (Mark) and Robert D'Isidori (Christine), and nine grandchildren Daniel, Gabriel, Katelyn, Caroline, Robbie, Scott, Mia, Kevin and Steven. She will forever be our guardian angel.
We are truly grateful for the amazing care and love given to our mother by the staff at Regina Health Center. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to: Regina Health Center, 5232 Broadview Rd, Richfield, OH 44286. A local funeral service will be private for family only. A burial service will be held on Long Island this Spring (date TBD) for both Virginia and Lou, and friends and family are welcomed to join the family at that time.
