Lucy Parato Hirshberg, 92, of Brooklyn, NY, passed on August 1, 2019. Lucy was born to Antonio and Gerolma (Damante) Cefaliello.
Through sheer perseverance, and a strong will power, she survived through multiple health problems, but continued to live her life to the fullest with a smile on her face.
She would always talk about her next trip to Atlantic City or a party she went to in her senior living community. Lucy was truly a people person.
Although she went through a lot of pain in the last few weeks, she is now at peace. Her perseverance and willpower saw her through to the end.
She was predeceased by her parents; by her husband, Vito Parato in 1986; by her second husband, Harold Hirshberg in 1990; and by her beloved son, Joseph in 1997. In addition, she was predeceased by her siblings Anna, Billy and Louie and her daughter-in-law, Antoinette.
Lucy leaves behind her children, Anthony and wife Barbara, Jerry, and her daughter-in-law Maureen; her brothers Frankie and Nicky; her Aunt Liz; her grandchildren Stephen, Elizabeth, Thomas, Melissa and Alex.
