Liboria was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and sister, known for her big heart and inviting smile. She loved to cook, spending summers in Seaside, and making everyone feel welcomed, which is why everyone called her “Nonna Bonnie”. However, her greatest joy was spending time with her family, children and grandchildren. One of her finest qualities was her ability to be a trusted confidant. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her was touched by her generosity and kindness. She'll be greatly missed by her family and friends.
