Daisy E. Bonfiglio

Daisy Elizabeth Bonfiglio, age 91, passed away Wednesday, April 4, 2012, at Wheaton Franciscan All Saints Medical Center. She was born in Niagara Falls, NY, on September 13, 1920, daughter of the late Ernesto and Jenny (Nee: Bruno) Nilo.

Daisy was a graduate of Wm. Horlick High School, “Class of 1938.” She was employed by the Racine Public Library for 26 years and most people would know her from the Bookmobile. She was a member of St. Richard’s Catholic Church and Vittoria Colonna. Daisy was a voracious reader and also enjoyed opera and politics. She will be dearly missed.

Daisy is survived by her son, Tony, of Racine; cousins, relatives and friends. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Anthony, in 1967; her son, Joe, in 1960; and three brothers, Ernie, Rudy and Joe.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Thursday, April 12, 2012, at 10 a.m. St. Richard’s Catholic Church, 1503 Grand Ave., with Rev. Ronald Gramza officiating. Interment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery, Hwy. 32. Relatives and friends may meet with family at the funeral home on Wednesday from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. (Vittoria Colonna Service at 6:30 p.m.) and on Thursday at the church from 9:30 until time of Mass. Memorials to the Racine Public Library have been suggested.

A very special thank you to Daisy’s Angels, Jo Porcaro and Marge Nilo, for their loving and compassionate care.

“Read a Book or Read a Book to a child. That would make Daisy SMILE!”
