  1. I will fondly remember Mrs. DiPersio as a caring mother of her “Other” children from the SHS Marching Band. She used to cook for us every Saturday before a football game and she was not only a great cook but also a kind and helpful hand that would always greet you with a warm smile and a reassuring nod. My heart goes out to her wonderful family that she raised. My heartfelt sympathy, May her memory be eternal.

  2. Mrs. D. was such an example of a mother, not just to her own children, grandchildren, extended family and the entire SHS Band. My life was better for having known her kindness and love. God Bless.
