Bridget spent her life working in the local garment industry. Bridget was the rock of the family and had great capacity for compassion but also possessed the strength to give tough love when necessary.
Bridget loved life and loved her family even
more. She took great pride in her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved when the whole family would get together during the holidays or other special occasions. She enjoyed dinners out with the family but really enjoyed visiting her fountains of youth… The Casinos. More often than not, she came home a Winner! She loved when all of the kids, family or friend, called her Grammy Sassi.
