Obituary for Ida Andreone (Porcello)

Ida M. Andreone, 90, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family in Atlanta, Georgia on October 29, 2019. Originally from Enfield, CT, she resided in Reading, MA for 50 years with her husband Carl, where they were active members at St. Agnes Catholic Church and the Elks Club. Ida was the 6th of 9 children born to the late John and Lillian (Alaimo) Porcello.
She is survived by her beloved children, Frank Andreone and his partner, Deanna Coulter of Albuquerque, NM, Katherine Andreone of Bethlehem, GA, and Dr. Chris Andreone and his wife Sharon Andreone of Sharpsburg, GA. She also leaves behind her loving grandchildren, Kimberly, Jennifer (Ben), Kelly and Katelyn; and her great grandchildren, Domonique, Vincent, Finley and Freya. She also leaves one loving sister, Rose Porcello of Enfield and one sister-in-law Ruth Porcello of Enfield and many nieces and nephews whom she loved and adored. She also will be missed by her dog companions, Twinkie and Arrow.
Ida was predeceased by her loving husband, Carl Andreone of 66 years in March 2014; and her devoted son, John M. Andreone of Reading, MA in February 2019. She was predeceased by five brothers, Tony (Dot), James (Clara), Leo, Charles (Margie) and Matthew (Nancy) Porcello and two sisters, Angelina Brooks Silansky and Lena Scalia Licardo.
Ida graduated from Enfield High School in 1946. She loved traveling to amazing places all around the world with her husband Carl. They lived in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, London England, Saudi Arabia and Massachusetts; and finally, in Georgia so her children could take care of her. She had many hobbies of painting, art, museums, sewing, knitting and collecting bells from around the world. Ida was a brave survivor of breast cancer three times. Our Mom made every holiday a special celebration with lifelong traditions. She loved cooking for her family and we regretfully still cannot get her recipes to taste the same. We especially loved her meatballs, her homemade pastina chicken soup and her many different homemade Christmas cookies, that she shared with all our neighbors every year. She loved irises, gazebos and the family dogs over the years. We will think of her, whenever we smell Youth Dew perfume by Estee Lauder. We know our Dad was waiting for her with a dry martini, with ice and olives on the side. Ida was truly loved and will be forever deeply missed by all of us.

Ida was a wonderful woman, an amazing cook, and loving person whom we all called “Mom.” John was a creative, intelligent, and artistic man. My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.
