Obituary of Mamie Jean Gadra

Mamie Jean Gadra, 94, formerly of 56 Clifton Avenue, died Friday April 7, 2023, in Heritage Village. She was born November 23, 1928, in Jamestown, a daughter of the late Joseph and Rose Coffaro Loverme. She was a communicant of St. James Catholic Church. She was a wonderful mother and caretaker who loved to laugh. She put everyone first with loving kindness and warmth. A skilled woodworker and furniture maker, she had worked at MRC like many of her family members. She was an excellent cook and her chicken cacciatore was always a huge hit at the Loverme/Coffaro family reunions. She had a wonderful green thumb, and her vegetable garden always had an abundance of tomatoes, green peppers, and basil. She enjoyed collecting antiques, reading, fishing, playing bingo, and going to the casino to play penny slots. Surviving are four children Paul (Kamie Fields) Gadra of Jamestown, Steven (Sherrie) Gadra of Powder Springs, Ga, Mary (Jon) Gerarde of Warren, PA and Kathleen Johnson of Okatie, SC; six grandchildren Daniel Gadra, Jamie (Jeff) Russell, Rachel (Jesse) Rankin, Peter, David, and Steven Gadra; a great grandchild Piper Russell; a sister Mary Raineir and longtime companion Pasqual Berardi of Jamestown. Besides her parents she was preceded in death by her husband Harvey Gadra; a son Peter Laboria; three brothers Charles, Frank, and Anthony Loverme and a sister Sarah Cappano. The funeral will be held at 1 pm Wednesday in the Lind Funeral Home, where friends will be received for one hour prior to the service. Burial will be in Holy Sepulchre. Please join the family for a luncheon at St. Luke's Church in celebration of Mamie's life immediately following the service.
