My sincere condolence's to the DiPalermo family. My fondest memory of Physllis was as a young teenager. She John my parents Jerry and Marcia, my sister and cousin John all went to Atlantic city, back before casinos. I remember laughing all the way there and back and her and my dad's crazy antics that day on the boardwalk. Phyllis always had a smile, a pleasant word and a deep love of family and her faith.
I will always cherish that day and your memory.
Love Marianne Bortone-Riviere

My prayers are with the DiPalermo family as you mourn the loss of your wife, mother and grandmother. I have fond childhood memories of "Aunt" Phyllis and hanging out on with "cousin" Steve at extended family get togethers. While attending Spellman it was always fun to see her smiling face every day. She loved life and was loved by many. I will be praying that you will be comforted in the days and weeks to come and that you will relish your memories of Phyllis. - Ken Cardita

My sincere condolences for the loss of Cousin Phyllis. I will always remember her kindness and her smiling face. We met in the 60's when she worked at Cardinal Spellman High School. Little did I know at that time that through marriage we would be related. I will never forget the happy lady in the Locker Room. She was a beautiful woman both inside and out!

My deepest heartfelt condolences for the loss of Phyllis "Nani" DiPalermo. I'm devastated that you're gone even though I know you're at peace with the Lord now. I'll always remember your quick wit and open heart. Even though I've only recently joined your wonderful family, you always looked out for me and went above and beyond to make me feel welcome. I will never forget your face when we told you of the engagement. The holidays will never be the same without your Advent calendars and your famous roasted red peppers.

Words cannot express how much you will be missed, Nani. You are in our hearts always. Love, Matt
