Isabel M. D’Onofrio
Isabel passed away peacefully in her Armonk, NY home on March 5, 2018. She was 96 years old. Born on July 11, 1921 in Bogota, Colombia to Praxedis Mendoza and Lawrence Parada. She emigrated to Manhattan with her mother upon her father’s death. Prior to WW II, while working as an executive secretary in Manhattan, she met her husband Charles (deceased) at an MSG hockey game. For both, it was love at first sight! Beloved by all her family and caregivers, she is survived by daughter Isa, son James M, granddaughter Ariana and sister in law, Teresa. Isabel will be greatly missed for her kindness and compassion to all and her ability to make us laugh even to the very end. A devout Catholic, visitation will be on Tuesday March 13th at 9 AM at St. Patrick’s of Armonk. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 AM. Interment will follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in New Rochelle. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to any organization helping children.
