Tribute

Grace LaMacchia was the devoted wife of Joseph LaMacchia and loving mother of five children, fifteen grandchildren, and four great grandchildren. But she was more than that, she was an extraordinary human being.

Grace spent most of her life as a civil servant and spent her spare time volunteering in our community. Grace was a member of the Setauket Fire Department Auxiliary for over 20 years, a delegate to the Suffolk County Ladies Auxiliary, and a member of CERT – Certified Emergency Response Team for ten years. She was a representative in the PEF union for several years. Grace not only found time with such a large family to hold a job and volunteer but she also felt a responsibility to contribute to all the local and foreign causes for decades. These included but were not limited to Hope House, Arbor Foundation, Doctors without Borders, St. Jude, Long Island Cares- Harry Chapin Foundation, The Nature Conservancy, and several more.

Grace will now join her husband Joseph in heaven. She is survived by five children: Laura Spielman (and husband Richard); Suzanne Consorte; Jeannie Paglia (and husband Christopher); Christina Prescott; and Joseph LaMacchia (and wife Nicole). Her grandchildren whom she absolutely adored: Vincent Spielman; Nicholas Burns (and husband Brian); Jennifer Marie Spielman; Katherine Grazier (and husband Robert), Michael Consorte (and wife Shane); Heather Consorte; Christopher Paglia; Rosalie Paglia; Vanessa Paglia; Isabelle Paglia; Joseph LaMacchia; Dominic LaMacchia; Gabriel LaMacchia; Luke LaMacchia; and Savannah Prescott. And the sparkle in her eyes, her great grandchildren: Chloe; Camila; Christian; and Ryan.
