Gilda Gregory age 92 died On Monday December 14th, 2020 predeceased by her husband of 72 years Robert F. Gregory (Bob). Gilda was born to Francisco & Raffaela Noto in New Rochelle, New York. Born in her grandmother’s house on Washington Avenue, the youngest of eight children; mom would be the first person to tell you she was Italian, enormously proud to be Italian American, her parents were born in San Fili in the province of Cosenza in the Calabria region of southern Italy. Gilda married her one and only true love Bob in 1947, mom affectionately called dad “Bob-O. They moved to Sacramento in 1949 and lived in Rancho Cordova for over 60 years. Survived by her daughter Joyce Barbara Gregory (Luckensmeyer) and son David Robert Gregory(her biggest fan) along with grandkids, great grandkids plus Gilda recently became a great- great grandma to Amanda’s daughter, Anya. Gilda was a fabulous homemaker, a loving wife, and an awesome mother, loved very much by the entire family and many church friends. Gilda published a cookbook “Gilda’s Kitchen” with the help from friends and family. A cookbook containing some of her favorite receipts. I would be remiss if I did not say LOUD and CLEAR that Gilda loved JESUS!! She was a born-again Christian and knew when she left this earth she was going home to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we thank God for the time he has given us together here on earth and look forward to the future when we will be together again in heaven…. Hallelujah!

    Gilda and Bob, opened their arms and hearts to us in 1960. Gilda was a proud wife, mother, and homemaker. Her love for Bob and her children was in her smile and eyes when she talked about them. Gilda was an excellent example of a Christian life. Never preaching but showing by example. The Gregory’s were responsible for us moving to Rancho Cordova in 1964. It has been our home ever since. The found memories we have of them will last in our hearts and minds forever. She will be missed, we never met anybody like her.

  • Josie Noto says:

    It was our good fortune that Gilda was persistent in finding family members from the Noto family in Canada. She travelled to Toronto without knowing what she would find… From the moment she entered our lives there was an instant connection and bond. I kept in touch over the last 30 years, and every time we spoke I learned something from her. Her cookbook has a special place in my kitchen and is source of reference. I will miss here deeply. The Noto clan sends our deepest sympathies. Josie Noto and families
