June 3, 1939 ~ May 6, 2021

Born in: Iowa
Resided in: Torrance, California

Our dear Phila Marie Tuccinardi went up to the heavens this past May 6, 2021. She has joined her parents, her sister Elaine and nephew Ricky, her brother Johnny, and many other meaningful family members and wonderful friends. Surely, they have welcomed her with open arms and care.

Phila is survived by her husband, sweetheart and everlasting love of 63 plus years, Louie Tuccinardi, and her three children, Corinne Jones and husband Paul, Jeff Tuccinardi and partner Anna, David Tuccinardi and wife Shelley. She is also survived by what she called the “best thing ever” her six grandchildren and four great grandchildren: Kristin Jones and her wife Alyssa with Lena and Lucas, Nicholas Jones and wife Cherise with Chase and Cole, Kevin Jones, Emily Tuccinardi, Nicole Tuccinardi and Michael Tuccinardi.

Family meant everything to her. Her happiest moments were when we could all be together sharing stories, catching up on our daily lives and eating our favorite foods; food often made by Phila or from recipes she taught and passed down to her family. Phila was so very intelligent, insightful, and caring. Her sense of humor and smile filled the hearts of all who knew her – she knew how to make people feel special.

The love for her family and those around her was insurmountable.
Our love for her is immeasurable.
Our grief for her is indescribable.
Her legacy of love, kindness and compassion for all is everlasting.
May we live by her example.

Services will be held on Saturday, May 22, 2021, a 11:00 am at First Lutheran Church and School at 2900 West Carson Street, Torrance, CA  90503.
