Leonilda (Schena) Ianniciello

January 7, 1932 — November 16, 2021

Leonilda (Schena) Ianniciello of Stoneham passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 16, 2021 at her home with her loving family by her side. She is 89 years of age.

Born on January 7, 1932 in Grottaminada, Italy, Leonilda is the loving daughter of the late Michael and Candida Schena. Leonilda is a gentle, warm and kind daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and friend who will be truly missed.

For anyone who knew our mother, she enjoyed the simple things in life. She loved to cook for her family (and it was mandatory that all her family be there to eat on Sundays). She loved spending quality time with them. She enjoyed growing her vegetables to make homemade sauce and absolutely loved attending the St. Anthony's Feast every year with her family.

Leonilda is the beloved wife of Sabato Ianniciello. She is the devoted mother of Lina Terranova and Eugenio Ianniciello and his wife Kristen. The cherished grandmother of Christina Pizzi and her husband Steve, Joseph Terranova and his wife Brenna, Michael Terranova and his wife Lindsay, Nicollette Ianniciello and Sabato Ianniciello, Leonilda is the doting great grandmother of Olivia, Lia, Luca and Gianna. She is survived by 6 of her 9 siblings and also lovingly survived by many nieces and nephews.
