Loving Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother and Aunt, passed away on November 17, 2017, surrounded by her loving family. Bettina was born on March 6, 1921, in Mola di Bari, Italy, to Domenico and Giovanna Sansone. She was the second youngest of ten siblings. In her late teenage years, Bettina learned the art of embroidery, which helped to provide for her family.
On December 4, 1948, she married her husband of 38 years, Domenico Furio. They had three children; Joe, Dominic and Joanne. In 1966, she and her family immigrated to the United States and lived in Chicago, Illinois for 13 years before permanently moving to San Pedro, California. In 1986, her beloved husband passed away and Bettina then moved in with her daughter and son in law, where she spent the rest of her life. Bettina loved to be in the kitchen cooking and baking for her family and friends. It brought her her greatest joy. Bettina was also a member of the Saint Joseph Society at Mary Star of the Sea Church. She is survived by her sons, Joe (Mariella) Furio, Dominic (Carol) Furio and daughter Joanne (Joe) Sancirardi; 7 grandchildren, Vito Sancirardi, Dominic (Jackie) Sancirardi, Lisa Furio, Lisa (Omar) Rivera, Dominic (Michelle) Furio, Chiara (Anthony) D'Aquanno, and Joey Furio; 12 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
We would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to all of our family and friends for your prayers, support, and expressions of love.
