Lydia was born in Camden, NJ, the daughter of the late Adeline and Pasquale DiGiosaffatto. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband Domenic Sciamanna, daughter Joanne McCaffrey, sister Janet Garzarelli and brother Peter DiGiosafatto.

Lydia devoted her life to creating a loving home for her family. A talented seamstress and wonderful cook, she produced a lifetime of beautiful garments and memorable homemade pasta dinners for the large extended family she loved so much.
