Lorraine M. Martelli, age 83, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at home with her family at her side.
She was born on August 15, 1937 in Brooklyn, NY, the daughter of the late Carmine Guiliano and Florence Lomonico Guiliano.
Lorraine was the owner/operator of Martelli’s Florist in Huntington, NY for many years prior to moving to Clifton Park to be near her children and grandchildren. She was an avid reader and loved her jigsaw puzzles and playing solitaire. Lorraine could always be found in the kitchen and loved having company. Her home was always a place of comfort and over the years countless celebrations. Lorraine had a big personality and people naturally gravitated towards her. She easily chatted with whomever she met and created connections wherever she went.
Lorraine is survived by her children, Joseph Martelli; Linda (Todd Bishop) Martelli-Bishop and Edward Martelli; brothers, Louis Guiliano (Mary), Edward Guiliano (Mireille); sisters-in law; Anne (Jim) Thompson, Darlene (Tom) Perschilli; brothers-in-law, Charles (Judith) Martelli, Philip ( Debbie) Martelli; grandchildren, Danielle and Jillian Bishop; many dear nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her beloved husband Liberato Martelli.
