Lydia Catherine (Gallucci) Lombardo

February 14, 1933 - September 4, 2020

It is with great sadness that the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of Lydia Catherine Lombardo share that she passed away on September 4, 2020 at the age of 87.


Beloved for how she loved her family and friends, her wit and insatiable thirst for learning, she was not only the spirit of our family, but also a scholar, an intellect and a published author.  In short, don’t challenge her to a test of history, theology, Scrabble or word games: she’d trounce you every time.


Lydia was the beloved daughter of Pietro and Virginia Gallucci and sister of Lou, who preceded her in death.  She was loved for fifty years by her husband, Vincent, who also preceded her.  She will be always be remembered by her seven children; Michael (Rita), Martin (Michele), Jeanne (William), Linda, Vincent (Vicki), Christopher (Tammy) and Lydia (Cory), her thirteen grandchildren; Lauren (Lee), Ashley, Vincent, Danielle (Andrew), Brin, Krista, David, Ryan, Cara, Rachael, Alyssa, Levi, Sophia, and her two great grandchildren; Leighton and Lee, Jr..


Lydia will be buried next to her husband Vincent, at National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.


Memorial donations can be made to both Gulfside Healthcare Services and the Catholic Student Union at the University of South Florida.
