December 13, 1914 – March 21, 2013
Lucy Mary Palazzo, age 98, went to see The Lord on March 21, 2013. She was born December 13, 1914 to Carmela and Joseph Raymond. Her life long occupation was to cook for others. Lucy always had a fresh bread roll, spaghetti and meatballs, or piece of cake for her many friends and family that stopped over. She always looked forward to cooking Sunday dinners for her family.
She married Joseph Palazzo on May 19, 1946 who passed away in 1985. The proudest moment in her life was when they adopted their son, Anthony in May 1960 from Rome, Italy which then made their life complete.
She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, parents and eight of her siblings. Lucy is survived by her son, Anthony (Tammie) Palazzo of Pleasant Hill; three grandchildren, Shonna (Alex) Travis of Excelsior, MN, Matt (Jocelyn) Palazzo of Pleasant Hill and Chase (Elizabeth) Gochnauer of Pleasant Hill; eight great-grandchildren, Tieler, Ally, Emily and Joseph Travis, Madelyn, Matthew and Jordan Palazzo and Carson Gochnauer; as well as two sisters, Antionette Fasano and Phyllis Chiodo and brother, Jim (Bev) Raymond, all of Des Moines.
We would like to thank the staff at Valley View Village, especially Sharron, for the excellent care Lucy received and extra time that was spent with her.
Lucy’s family will greet friends on Tuesday, March 26 from 5 to 7 pm with a Rosary following at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Des Moines. Funeral mass will be 11 a.m., Wednesday at St. Peter’s Catholic Church with burial at Glendale Cemetery.Information provided by: Brooks Funeral Care 7975 University Blvd. Clive, IA 50325 www.meaningfulfunerals.net
