Edith T. Navarroli


Edith T. (Lizzotti) Navarroli, 92, of Niagara Falls, NY, died on Friday, November 30, 2012 at Schoellkopf Health Care Facility.  Born in Terrelle, Italy, she was the daughter of the late Francis and Mary Grace (D'Ammizio) Lizzotti.
On September 7, 1946 she married Amadio "Amy" Navarroli at Holy Rosary Church in Thorold, Ontario, Canada. Mr. Navarroli predeceased her on June 10, 2005. Edie, as she was known, was a devoted and loving mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and dear friend to so many. Known as "Lala" by her great-grandchildren, Edith enjoyed opera, Broadway musicals, singing, crocheting, traveling and being a faithful member of St. Joseph's choir for over 45 years. 
Edith was active in St. Joseph's, Bishop Duffy and Madonna's Mothers clubs, always volunteering and supporting the area parochial schools. She was a member of the Madonna del Soccorso Society and many other church related prayer groups. As a devout Catholic, Edith was often called upon to pray for those in need of spiritual support. She lovingly referred to her list of prayer requests daily. In 2004, she and her late husband Amadio were honored by the Pine Ave. Business Association as "Special Citizens", an award she was proud to receive being a resident of Niagara Falls' Little Italy district for over 60 years.
Edith is survived by four children, Anthony (Patricia) Navarroli of Niagara Falls, NY, John (Jennifer) Navarroli of Crystal Beach, Ontario, Canada, Marie (late Charles) Kropp of Longboat Key, FL and Roseanne (Patrick) Devaux of Welland, Ontario; five grandchildren, Anthony  Navarroli, Jr., Michael (Adrienne) Navarroli, Kendra (Michael) Navarroli-Upham, Michael (Vicki) Kropp and Arielle Devaux; five great-grandchildren, Olivia Navarroli, Alexandra Navarroli, Anthony Navarroli III, Isabella Navarroli and Christianna Navarroli, one sister, Josephine (late Joseph) Savoia of Thorold, Ontario; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by two brothers and one sister, Louis (late Irene) Lizzotti, Clementine (late Joseph) Doherty and Anthony Lizzotti.
