FEB. 4, 1952 – DEC 23, 2021
Louise Incorvaia, 69, of Phoenix, Arizona passed away on December 23, 2021. She was born on February 4th, 1952 in Brooklyn, New York
Louise grew up in the famous amusement park region of Brooklyn, NY called Coney Island. She attended Lafayette High School and worked in her youth with her paternal grandmother, Luisa, in an Italian restaurant as well as at an Italian bakery with her loving uncle Martino Dragonetti.
Louise was a devoted Roman Catholic who enjoyed the many traditions of the church. Along with her husband Angelo, she lived temporarily both in Palermo, Sicily and Rome, Italy.
Having learned over the years from her paternal grandmother Luisa, Louise loved to cook and prepared mouth watering meals! Later in life, with her cousin Daniel’s assistance, she baked a great number of flavorful lasagna masterpieces for many colleagues of Daniel’s within the Phoenix engineering, contracting and government agencies earning her the title as “Chef Louise, the Lasagna Queen!”
Most memorable to her were those lasagnas specially prepared for the staffs of Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, the Arizona Rock Products Association (ARPA) and those of her cousin Daniel’s colleagues at Speedie and Associates. Preparing these labors of love lasagnas provided Louise an opportunity to focus away from the many hurts and pains experienced in her own life.
Louise is survived by her son Robert, her daughter in law, her beloved and only granddaughter, along with her cousin Daniel A. Dragonetti, who was inseparable, like a blood brother, as only 2 people can ever be, as youngsters, growing up in the ‘60’s and continued that relationship into their adulthood till the hour Christ called her home.
Louise is preceded in death by her husband Angelo Incorvaia, mother Antoinette Raffone Dragonetti, father Anthony Dragonetti, uncle Martino & aunt Theresa Dragonetti, aunt Sara Celendano & aunt Phyllis Costa.
Louise’s family and those many countless friends that knew of her life are invited to attend a 2 hour visitation at Whitney & Murphy Funeral Home, 4800 East Indian School Road in Phoenix, on Thursday, January 6, 2022 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.
Interment will be at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery (2033 North 48th Street in Phoenix) on Friday, January 7th, 2022 at 11:00am.
My condolences to the family . May you have the peace Knowing that she is with the Lord Jesus. The peace we all will have if we believe what he did was on the cross. Special condolences and love to my friend I grew up with in Coney Island New York Daniel Dragonetti. And all of the family with love from our family Joe and Ruth DePalo
I had the opportunity to interact often with Louse, through my best friend Danny Dragonetti. We ate together, spoke Italian together, as we laughed together. Any foods she prepared were superb and made with love. Most importantly, Jesus was Louise’s savior, and she is with Him now…
