Jeanette M. Clementoni Lyons, age 93, of New Castle, DE, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Chadds Ford, PA, on February 10, 1928, she was a daughter of the late Samuel and Louise (Corrado) Cardile.
Jeanette was the old school, devoted Italian mom who welcomed everyone into her home, making sure no one ever left hungry. She was known to be a very caring, strong, and accepting woman.

The minute you walked through her door, Jeanette was there to welcome you with open arms and always made you feel special. She was truly a beautiful soul and will be dearly missed by everyone who knew her.
In addition to her parents, Jeanette was preceded in death by her loving husband, Alfred “Freddy” Clementoni; son, Nicholas “Nicky” Clementoni; and sisters, Ann Figliola and Frances Hall. She is survived by her daughters, Liz Clementoni and Janet Latzgo (Tony); grandchildren, Dave Snowberger (Stephanie), Chris Ackerson (Lisa), Evelyn Ackerson (Rob), Heather Leary (Eric), and Freddy Clementoni (Marissa); 12 great grandchildren, including Danny Snowberger and Elizabeth Leary, with whom she lived; and many nieces and nephews.
