Mildred Busca


Mildred Busca, of Warwick, NY, passed away on May 6, 2018 at her home with her loving family beside her. She was 98 years old.

Born in Brooklyn, NY to parents Dominic and Anna (Didato) DeCrescenzo, September 10, 1919.

Mildred devoted her life to her family, as they were always her number one priority. Words cannot describe the love she gave to her family and friends.
