Adversity was not absent from her life when tragedy struck.

Tragedy also struck again when she experienced the loss of her son John who was 40 years old and then the loss of the love of her life, Alfred Morrocco, Sr. on February 25, 2003. Despite those losses she was still the matriarch of the family. When she was young, she cared for all of her three brothers and two sisters from an early age. She was also the strong and the driving force to make them as well as her two sons decent and caring persons. Everyone in the family looked up to her for guidance and respect.
