NAPLES, FL - Aida Philomena (Ciocca) Martone, 98, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 at her home in Bradford Square, Naples, Florida, and was previously a resident of IslandWalk for many happy years prior to her residence at Bradford Square.
Aida was born on December 8, 1919 to the late Angelo and Maria Carmela (Chiello) Ciocca in Lawrence, MA. She was a graduate of Lawrence High School and was a supervisor for Western Electric in North Andover, for 30 years. For years after her wedding to John Martone on December 28, 1941 at Holy Rosary Church in Lawrence, she would reminisce of the surprising events that occurred the day of her wedding shower on December 7, 1941, also known as Pearl Harbor day. They were blissfully in love for 71 years when John passed in 2013. After World War II they spent the first 40 years of married life in North Andover, until they decided to retire to Florida in 1982. Aida found great joy in spending time with her family. She also enjoyed talking sports, politics, news of the day and space, as well as cheering on her favorite New England Patriots.
Aida will be deeply missed by her daughter, Maureen Hibbard and her husband Kevin of Naples, Fla.; her brother, Rudy Ciocca and his wife Joan of Weston, FL; her daughter-in-law, Patricia Martone of Nashua, N.H.; her four grandchildren, Air Force Capt. Shawn Hibbard and his financee Paige Dobbertin of Jessup, Md.; Christopher Martone and his wife Lauren of Manchester, NH; Kathryn Letter and her husband, Michael of Scottsdale, AZ; and Stephen Martone and his wife Angela of Charlestown, MA; as well as her five great-grandchildren, Mikey Letter, Natalie Letter, Carter Martone, Aubrey Martone, and Olivia Martone; as well as nieces and nephews.
In addition to her loving husband, she was preceded in death by her beloved son Rodney, and brothers Montovano (Monty), and Albert Ciocca.
Visiting hours will be at Fuller Funeral Home, 1625 Pine Ridge Rd. on Monday, January 8, from 6 to 8 p.m, following by Mass at St. Agnes Catholic Church on Tuesday, January 9 at 11 a.m.
