Exact ages were never discussed at Grandma’s house, doing so was considered the worst of bad luck. But it always seemed to outsiders that Del must have been among the oldest of the sisters and brothers in the large Italian-American family.
Del, unlike her sisters, never married. As the last unmarried daughter, it became her job to care for her aging parents.
Del also is godmother to Faye and Sal’s son, a very important role in an Italian-American family. The son routinely comes to her when he felt troubled or upset and it wouldn’t be unusual or unexpected for her to show up to confront his parents about something going on in the kid’s life.
See how Del deals with the biggest crisis in her godson;s life, plus another major family crisis as well in New Year’s Eve at Grandma’s House, with shows Nov. 3-18, Saturday evenings at 7, Sundays at 3. Simply click here for tickets.
