Jemma was a member of the greatest generation that made the greatest moms and grandmoms. At a time when women were working in factories and making airplanes, they were also home making families. She played baseball as a young girl and became a life-long Yankees fan. Jemma welcomed everyone into her life and into her home. She loved all children and unselfishly gave of herself to make others happy. We will remember her as a wonderful mom and devoted wife to her husband Don.
