Bernadette M. Giorno

March 23, 1947 ~ September 17, 2022 (age 75)


Bernadette M. Giorno (nee Falcone), September 17, 2022, age 75. Beloved wife of Gary Giorno, loving mother of Kevin Giorno (Sonja), Jennifer Estrada (Michael), and Angela Giorno. Adoring Grandmother of Stella Estrada, Ava Veneri, Blaise Giorno, and Cameron Crosby. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Bernadette was predeceased by her parents, Cosimo and Angelina Falcone, her siblings, Angelo Falcone and Grace Tobin, and her niece Deborah Tobin.

Bernadette was loved by all who knew her. She will always be remembered for her amazing cooking, trademark laugh, fashion sense, love of shopping, and years spent working at the Belmont Hills Library. Bernadette enjoyed her second home in North Cape May where she made many happy memories with her family and friends. She loved sitting on the beach and enjoying time at the winery.

Bernadette's greatest joy was her family. She was married to Gary for 52 years and they shared a lifetime of true love and happiness. Together they traveled to many places over the years including Ireland, Aruba, and her most favorite, Calabria, Italy.

Bernadette's three children were her world and she devoted her life to their happiness. In 2013, Bernadette took on her greatest and most fulfilling title, Mom-Mom. Her four grandchildren were her heart and whenever they told her that they loved her she always responded, "I love you more."
