Broomall, Pennsylvania | Age 94

Loving Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother


Loretta "Laura" Rita Giglia (Alleva) age 94 of Broomall, PA, previously Upper Darby PA and Atlantic City NJ, was called home to the Lord on Jan. 2, 2019

Loving wife of the late Vincent James "Jimmy" Giglia. Preceded in death by brothers Nick, Fred and sister Marion. Beloved mother of the late Dawn Giglia Halstead (Art). Survived by daughter Dianne Giglia Kelly, and son Joseph Giglia (WIlliam Cosentino). Caring Mommom to 6 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.

A loving and devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who took great pride in boasting about her large wonderful family and extremely proud of their many accomplishments. She was strong, caring, loving and very generous to all she knew and considered herself blessed for her numerous close friends.

Mrs. Giglia had many talents of her own. In high school she won an international award for a painting that was put on display at a gallery in France and was a member of the fencing team. She taught piano and was highly skilled as a beautician. Laura obtained a license in audiology and worked with her husband in Philadelphia at the family hearing aid business, helping put in to place many of the industry standards that still exist in the field today. She was an avid golfer, winning numerous club awards alongside her beloved Jimmy at Penn Oaks Country Club, while passing the sport along to their grandchildren.

A stunningly beautiful lady who always had a smile on her face and a kind word to say about others. She will be deeply missed by her loving family and all who were blessed to know her.

Family and friends are invited to her Visitation Sunday Feb. 24th, 2PM and Services to follow 3PM at D'Anjolell Memorial Home 2811 West Chester Pike, Broomall, PA.
