Obituary of Jill D. Trotta

Jill D. Trotta of Somers, New York, formerly of Katonah, died peacefully on Wednesday, May 15, 2024 at The Paramount in Somers, NY

 

Jill was born on December 31, 1950 in Brooklyn, New York and spent her childhood living in Freeport, Long Island where she met the love of her life and high school sweetheart, Vincent Trotta. Jill and Vincent married in September 1974 and spent the next 50 years in love and sharing a beautiful, well-lived life together.

 

She dedicated her life as a homemaker, devoted mother of Matthew (Heather) and doting Nonna of Benjamin and Harry, both of whom were always her perfect angels and could do no wrong. In addition to her immediate family, Jill is survived by her older sister Helene DelMese.

 Jill always put others before herself and spent precious hours as a volunteer at Northern Westchester Hospital and later in life drove elderly clients with no family from the Country House to doctor’s appointments and errands.

 

In recent years, her life revolved around Benjamin and Harry, where she rarely missed any sports game or music concert, managed to track down the most coveted Christmas gifts and sought out any and every opportunity to spend time with them. She shared her love of cooking with them and preparing Sunday night family dinners was the highlight of her week. She was most proud of spending weeks cooking elaborate and delicious Thanksgiving meals as having family around the table brought her joy beyond measure.

 

The Mass of Christian Burial, which will be an opportunity for all who loved her to celebrate her life will be at St. Patrick’s Church, Bedford, NY on  Thursday, May 23, 2024 at 11:00am.

 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests those who wish to remember Jill in a special way to make donations to Cristo Rey New York High School (112 East 106th Street, New York, NY 10029) or Give Now | Cristo Rey New York (cristoreyny.org), which perfectly embodies her faith-filled life, love of children and desire to help others.»
