Marina Veltri, 84, of Kenosha, passed away on Friday, August 28, 2020, at her residence, surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Cosenza, Italy, on October 27, 1935, she was the daughter of the late Fidel and Rosana (Taccone) Bombino.
On March 14, 1954, she married Eugenio Veltri in Argentina, and they moved their family to Kenosha in 1972. He preceded her in death on October 23, 2014. She is happy to be reunited with her beloved husband in Heaven.
Marina was a member at St. Mary Catholic Church. She enjoyed gardening, baking sugar cookies for holidays, and was an excellent cook, specializing in her homemade gnocci and pasta sauce. She especially enjoyed cooking with her sisters and passing her recipes down to her family. Above all else, Marina was an excellent mother and loved her grandchildren dearly.
Survivors include her two children, Francisca Rosana (Thomas) Peters, and Eugenio F. (Lisa) Veltri; five grandchildren, Ryan Peters, Melissa Peters, Kyle (Stephanie) Peters, Christina (Branden) Patzschke, and Andrea Veltri; two great-grandchildren, Liam and Addison Patzschke; and a sister, Aurora Tocci. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
Aside from her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her sister, Flora Trotta; and two brothers-in-law, Enzo Tocci and Frank Trotta.
The family would like to thank Aurora at Home Hospice for the care they provided.
