With sadness in our hearts, but with faith in the resurrection, we announce the passing of our beloved Letizia Salamon in her 100th year on Saturday, March 23rd, 2024.

Letizia Salamon (nee Luksic) was born September 22, 1924 to the late Ivan and Katarina in Tupljak, Istria, Croatia.

At the age of 12, her formal schooling ended and she began working in Rijeka, Croatia. She later moved to Trieste, Italy during the second world war.

In Trieste, she met and married the love of her life, Frank Salamon. They were blessed with the birth of their son, Romeo in 1947. Letizia and Frank were strong believers in education and worked hard to ensure that Romeo would have every educational opportunity. They were overjoyed when he became a chartered accountant.

Letizia, Frank and Romeo emigrated to the United States in 1956, settling first in Brooklyn. They moved to Flushing NY in 1972 and then to Nanuet in 1991 to be closer to her son and his family. Since 2014, Letizia was a resident of Moonachie, NJ.

In the United States, Letizia was employed as a seamstress. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, sewing and keeping active. She went on daily walks to the store and her local church until her mid 90s. Letizia was blessed with very good health up until the last couple of months. Her Faith was ever present throughout her life and she never wavered from her beliefs, despite the hardships she endured.

She was predeceased by her son Romeo (1998), husband Frank (2006) and daughter-in-law Elizabeth (2018); her siblings Slava (1991) and brother-in-law Sime (2003), Anton (1998) and sister-in-law Tina (2015), and Rosa (2017) and brother-in-law Mate (2004), and Ana (in infancy), several nieces and nephews, cousins and other treasured family members.

Letizia is survived by her brother Ivan Luksic and sister-in-law Mary of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada; her sister Ada and brother-in-law Mladen Krapec of Kelowna, BC, Canada; her grandchildren Francesca (Doug) and Nicholas and five great-grandchildren. She is survived by niece Dorothy (Ante) Milardovic, nephew Ivan (Sonja) Luksic who were at her side when she passed. She was a special teta/zia to Nerina Valenti, Marija Szalaj, Maria Mihelic, Alessandro Salamon and Rita Salamon Perry. Letizia will be fondly remembered by nephews Silvano and Stan Dunis, nieces Gordana Krapec and Tatijana Clifford, nephew Zeljko Miletic, niece Sonja Mrzlic and nephews Stelio, Branko and Leo Luksic. Letizia is survived by extended family and friends in the United States, Canada, Croatia, Italy, Germany and Australia.

She was blessed to have an amazing group of friends and family who supported her: Patricia and Henry Dudek, Maria Latkovich, Nadia Kappel, Patrice Tiffany, Bruno Fonovich, Ivanica Kero, Ada Cristofich, Laura Stroligo and Regina and Joseph Muscatelli. Letizia was always fond of children and was blessed to have the love and support of Victoria and Ivan Milardovic, Mason and Valentina Kappel, and Matthew and Katarina Luksic.
