Clementina was born in Bristol, PA on November 27, 1934. She attended St. Hubert's High School in Philadelphia, PA where she made lifelong friends and treasured memories. Following her marriage to Joseph, she moved to Trenton, NJ, raised her family in Hamilton, NJ, and later settled in Lawrenceville, NJ.
Clementina dedicated her time to multiple causes, including many years doing PR for the Susan G. Komen Annual Race for the Cure in Princeton, NJ. She was politically active throughout her life and spent many years working for the Hamilton Democratic Party. She was employed by the Trenton Board of Education and retired from the State of New Jersey after positions with the Council of the Arts and the Governor's Press Office. In 1995 she was nominated and ran for New Jersey State Assembly. She was a vocal advocate for women’s equality.
She loved travel, theater, and art and volunteered at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton. She was an avid reader. She never went long without a book in her hand. Her favorite book was Little Women and she loved to remind her family of her turn as Meg March in her high school production. She loved her family and adored her grandchildren more than anything in the world. She attended countless sporting events, dance recitals, and plays. She loved celebrating the achievements of her children and grandchildren.
She was beloved by many and will be deeply missed.
