She was the mother to 12 children, grandmother to 39, and great-grandmother to 35 and counting. She was the last remaining member of seven loving McDonough siblings. Mrs. Cricco imparted her deep faith and special devotion to the Blessed Mother to her children, who survive her: Carol Cricco Barna (Joe), Barbara Cricco, Robert Cricco (Kate), Carl Cricco, Mary DePascale (Paul), Roberta Cricco-Lizza (Eli), Joseph Cricco (Donna), Michael Cricco, Donna Matakonis (Thomas), Mark Cricco (Donna), Eugene Cricco (Amanda), and Catherine Andelfinger (Michael).
Her home was the hub of daily family gatherings throughout her life. She was a gifted cook and her kitchen table was large enough to fit a crowd. She graciously made everyone feel welcome and special in her presence and always knew the exact kind words to share. She was the humble source of so much wisdom, kindness and loyalty for her family and neighbors.
