Euna Mae Basso Deliberto, passed away peacefully at her home on March 10, 2019. She was born in Independence, Louisiana on July 31, 1923 to the late Benedict and Martha Basso.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Philip Joseph Deliberto; her son, Wayne Joseph Deliberto; daughter in law, Paulette Downey Deliberto; grand-daughter, Ashley Elizabeth Deliberto; her parents, Benedict and Martha Basso; and her sisters, Hazel Saizan and Gertrude Monistere.

She is survived by her daughter, Barbara and husband David Burns; and her grandsons who she referred to as her hearts- Christopher Logan Burns and Philip Justin Burns and his wife Mary Caitlin Feritta Burns. She is also survived by her sister Evelyn Pecoraro and her brother Norman Basso, in addition to numerous nieces and nephews. Miss Euna, as she was known to her many "unofficial family" members, was blessed with the friendship of many that she "adopted" as family.
