January 21, 1945 - August 15, 2020
Nilda Ann Miraglia of Yorktown Heights passed away suddenly on August 15, 2020. Nilda was born January 21, 1945 in Yonkers to John & Eileen Baldante. On November 20, 1965 Nilda married Angelo Miraglia at St. Brendan’s Church in the Bronx. Nilda worked for Southern Westchester Boces in accounting before retiring in 2015. She dedicated much of her life to charity work, including many years spent helping hospice patients at Gilda’s House in White Plains, NY. Nilda’s light always shined brightly; her presence was that of an angel. Nilda devoted herself to her friends, family and above all her faith in God. She loved being a mom and grandma more than anything in the world. Nilda passed her spiritual faith to so many especially her husband, children and grandchildren. Always the first to remind us to have fun and not take life too seriously, she left a lasting impression on everyone she met. Her love, strength and zest for life will carry on in so many of us. At 4’11” Nilda was larger than life but she preferred to let everyone else shine and that is why we are keeping this short and sweet just like our beloved. Nilda is survived by her husband of 55 years, Angelo, 3 daughters Laura Molen (Tom), Angela Belliveau (John), Eileen Miraglia, son John Miraglia (Kate), sister Eileen Frissora and 3 brothers Thomas Baldante, John Baldante and Edward Baldante. Also survived by 5 grandchildren Krysta, Rocco, Francesca, Peter and Giavanna. Viewing will be held on Tuesday, August 18 from 4-8pm at The Yorktown Funeral Home. The funeral will take place at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, Shrub Oak, NY at 10am on Wednesday August 19th and will be immediately followed by a burial at the Gates of Heaven Cemetery, Valhalla, NY. If preferred in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRAhope.org).
