Emily Fiori, 99, passed away peacefully March 3, 2024. She was a long-time resident of Morris Park in the Bronx. Emily was born to Salvino and Filomena Pocchiari on January 2, 1925.

In 1947, Emily married the love of her life, Frank. She spent the next 77 years caring for her family and any neighborhood animal that was lucky enough to find its way to her doorstep. Emily was an avid reader and lover of animals. She enjoyed spending time with her family and cooking beloved recipes for the holidays. Every Christmas, she shared her passion for making Struffoli with her kids, grandkids, and great-grandson. Her hands were rarely still as she was always sewing or knitting something in her free time.

Emily was preceded in death by her husband Frank. She is survived by her loving daughter Carolyn, her three grandchildren, Joseph, Toni (Darren), and Janet (Paul), and her great-grandson Nolan, whom she adored.

Please join us in celebrating her life Wednesday, March 6, 2024, between 4 p.m.- 8 p.m. at John Dormi & Sons Funeral Home, 1121 Morris Park Avenue, Bronx. Mass of Christian Burial will be Thursday at 11am at St. Clare’s Church, 1908 Paulding Avenue, Bronx. Interment will follow at Woodlawn Cemetery, East 233rd Street and Webster Avenue, Bronx.
