Aurelia Cesario passed on peacefully surrounded by her family and loved ones on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. Born June 1, 1926, in Kenosha, WI to Eugene and Teresa (Stancato) Trecroci, she was 94 years old.

Aurelia graduated from Mary D. Bradford High School in 1946. Just out of high school, Aurelia worked for Simmons Mattress Factory and did some waitressing at her brother Frank’s restaurant in Kenosha. She also worked for Kenosha Unified School District as a lunch lady. In 1946 she married the love of her life, Frank Cesario, and lived happily married for 50 years. Aurelia was a member of the Italian American Club, where she was honored as mother of the year. She was a lifelong member of the Holy Name Sodality and a devoted lifelong member of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church. Aurelia loved spending time with family and friends and was always there when you needed her. One of her favorite ways to show her love was by cooking a good meal. Aurelia also loved hosting her Annual Neighborhood Picnic for over 50 years. She also enjoyed playing the game Scrabble any chance she had and was always the winner.
Aurelia was a loving wife and mother of three. If you were lucky and blessed to have known Aurelia, you realized that she was an exceptional woman and a true/lifelong friend. Aurelia was a mother to all she met and loved by all who met her.

Dear Frank, Rick & Keith,

I was deeply saddened to learn of your Mom's passing. I have nothing but wonderful memories of your Mom and your family. While our family moved away from 24th Avenue in 1972, my first ten years were some of the most wonderful growing up in the Holy Rosary neighborhood. I live in Madison now (Gregg and Mary Ellen both live in Texas), but I try and come home a few times a year to see cousins who still live in Kenosha.

I last saw your Mom on one of my trips home several years ago at the Holy Rosary Festival. She was working the Chuck O' Luck booth. I sat down and we played together. We had a wonderful conversation of our time on 24th Avenue. I remember when I was 6 or 7, trying to earn some money to spend at Lenci's. I went around our block looking for yard jobs and projects. Your Mom hired me to weed the side bushes, paying me with a dollar and a bag of Cheetos. Great times. Whenever I'm in town, I try and stop at Saint George's to visit the graves of my Nana and my Aunt Mary & Uncle Gene Filippello. They rest right near your Dad. I always stop and say a prayer for him and now will for your Mom as well. It will always gives me a chance to think of them and remember my time growing up with you guys on our street. Those were special times. God bless you all and the memory of your Mom and Dad.

Ral was a dear friend of my mother (Mary Steele) and Godmother to my brother Robert Steele. Even though she wasn't actually our Aunt we always called her Aunt Ral. She was a beautiful, loving person inside and out. I have many wonderful memories of her. She will be missed by many. Love you Aunt Ral
