Edda (Nardi) Luppino went to be with our Lord peacefully at home early the morning of July 21, 2019. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Antonio Luppino, who she married on December 29, 1956, at St. Rocco's Church in Cleveland. Surviving are their three children, son Frank and Kathy (Harris) Luppino, daughter Catherine and James Spayde, and daughter Mary and Stephen Schloemer. Edda and Antonio cherished their 11 grandchildren. Brandy Luppino, Casey Luppino, Anthony Luppino, Alana Luppino, Kristina (Spayde) Polachek, Michael Spayde, Adam Schloemer, Joseph Schloemer, Emily (Schloemer) Smith, Stephen Schloemer and Hannah Schloemer. Edda was also blessed with seven great-grandchildren. In addition, she is survived by sisters-in-law, Gabriella Luppino, Luigina Nardi and Vali Nardi, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Edda was born in Padova, Italy, on May 4, 1934, and was very proud of her heritage. Her parents were Leonardo and Pierina Nardi and she was one of eight children. Deceased siblings include brothers Costantino, Benito and Delfino Nardi, and a sister, Delfina (Nardi) Christopher. Edda has three surviving siblings in Italy, Maria, Rosetta and Daniele.
Edda loved her homeland of Italy and always was ready to share her stories and recipes. She made many visits back to Italy to visit family and friends. She was a Mercy Hospital volunteer for over twenty years and her love of growing flowers was shared in the chapel there as often as she could. Crocheting and knitting were among her hobbies, too. She was a member of St. Francis Xavier Church and a volunteer for the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
If you knew her well or not, she loved to talk about her favorite saint, St. Anthony. She was a determined and hard-working woman who loved being a homemaker and taking care of her family. She could always be found in the kitchen making her family's favorite foods.
Edda came to the United States on July 21, 1954. Sixty-five years later, to the day, she passed. Buon Viaggio as she enters her eternal home.
Family and friends may visit on Thursday, July 25, 2019 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Secor Funeral Home in Willard. Her funeral mass will be held on Friday, July 26, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Willard with Father George W. Mahas officiating mass. Burial will follow at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery in Willard. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Francis Xavier School. Online condolences can be left for the family at www.secorfuneralhomes.com.

I am sorry to hear about the loss of Eda. What an amazing women. I enjoyed all the conversations we had when she volunteered at the hospital. She took her role as a volunteer very seriously and no matter what the weather we could count on her showing up. I admired her so much and often told her that.
She loved her husband and family and spoke about them often.
May God hold you up as you say your final goodbyes.

I am so very sorry for the loss of Edda. I so enjoyed working with her at the hospital. She often brought books and post cards to look at in regards to her homeland and church. I am going to miss her. Today as I went into the hospital chapel, the first thing I noticed there was no flowers at the altar and I realized we would not see Edda's beautiful flowers she always brought in from her garden. May she rest in peace.
