Jennie (Bilancio) Immordino, 93, of Kent, formerly of Lawrenceville, N.J., died June 1 at home surrounded by loved ones. She was the widow of Robert B. Immordino, to whom she was married for 68 years.
Mrs. Immordino was born June 9, 1918, daughter of the late Nicola and Carolina (Chianese) Bilancio.
She grew up in Trenton, N.J., graduated from Trenton High School and worked at Eastern Aircraft in Ewing Township, N.J., during World War II.
She loved entertaining her family with stories of her childhood, beautiful poetry and a song for any occasion.
Mrs. Immordino was known by her family for her playful, loving and positive spirit; for her kindness and sense of humor; for her delicious meals and living a healthy life; and for her magic shows.
She was proud of her strong family relationships; of the Bilancio family newspaper, LaVigna, which has been published quarterly for more than 28 years; and of growing up in Chambersburg, an Italian neighborhood in Trenton.
Mrs. Immordino is survived by a daughter and son-in-law, Carolyn and Jim MacLeod, of Kent, with whom she lived; a daughter, Roberta Immordino, of Palo Alto, Calif.; a sister, Lorraine Anthony, of Hamilton, N.J.; three grandchildren, Carrie (MacLeod) Feinberg, of Bath, Maine, Jaime (MacLeod) Berhanu, and her husband, Andy, of Bowdoinham, Maine, and Robert Garcia, of Palo Alto; four great-granddaughters, Lyana and Makeda Berhanu and Aviva and Mayim Feinberg; three sisters-in-law, Marge Pieczynski, Rita Immordino and Gloria Bilancio; and an extended family of nieces, nephews and cousins whom she loved. The family recognizes caregiver Susan Warren, who was a loving companion and friend to Mrs. Immordino for three years. In addition to her husband, who died in 2009, she was predeceased by three sisters, Rose Bilancio, Sylvia Bilancio and Angelina Bilancio; and two brothers, Lewis Bilancio and Leo Bilancio.
A memorial service and burial at the BG William C. Doyle Veterans Memorial Cemetery in New Jersey will take palce at the convenience of the family.
