In memory of
Connie Giardini Connie Giardini nee: Glorioso. Beloved wife of the late Angelo Giardini; loving mother of Lisa Schullo and Nicholas Giardini; dear grandmother of Anthony Schullo; and aunt of many nieces and nephews. A 37 year resident of Glen Ellyn, Mrs. Giardini was known for her fierce devotion to family, love and concern for all children, a brilliant wit and perpetually auburn hair. She was employed by Sears Roebuck and Co. on Main Street in Glen Ellyn and several other area firms. After a brief and unsuccessful retirement in 1986, she returned to part-time work in the Village Offices of Glen Ellyn, a job she loved. She ultimately retired in 1997 to care for her ailing husband. She followed her son to San Francisco in 2004 where she was a commanding presence at Coventry Park Assisted Living and then Laguna Honda Hospital and Rehabilitation Center, living a rich and meaningful life despite dementia. She died peacefully in her sleep after 96 wonderful years of life.
