Mrs. Stella Maria Gauci, December 3, 1924 - October 24, 2020
In loving memory of Mrs. Stella Gauci, affectionately known as Mama Stella, beloved mother of Joseph, Mary, Carmen and Frank Gauci, and devoted widow of the late Francis X. Gauci. On Saturday night, October 24th, Stella peacefully passed away in her sleep at the age of 95. Stella and Francis immigrated by ship to America in 1952 from their native country of Malta, with Grandma Gaetana Gauci and their two children, Joseph & Mary. Carmen & Frank were later born in NY. Together Francis & Stella built a beautiful family life settling in New Hyde Park, NY, in 1964, where the family home is to this day. All these years, their Parrish has been Notre Dame Church, to whom Stella remained deeply devoted to. Mama Stella was dearly loved and cherished by family, friends, neighbors and all those who came to know her pure heart and loving kind spirit. Ever gracious, devoted, dedicated, hard-working, warm, generous, gentle and reserved, we remember and honor Mama Stella for the genuine selfless care she humbly offered to all alike. We will all miss her bright smile and affectionate loving presence.
