Carmelita Malatesta of Smallwood, a retired seamstress, passed away on Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at the Catskill Regional Medical Center in Harris. She was 95. The daughter of the late Pietro Lupi and Enrichetta Locatelli Lupi, she was born July 7, 1924 in Varazze, Italy on the Italian Riviera. She is survived by her two sons: Silvio Ottolia & his wife Nieves of Buffalo, NY and Maurizio Ottolia & his wife Kim of Atlantic Beach, NY and four grandchildren: Harry, Gina, Lisa and Sara; and several nieces and nephews. She was the widow of both Enrico Ottolia and Americo Malatesta, and was also predeceased by her siblings: Nicola Lupi of Manhattan and Teresa Sanino of Santiago, Chile. Her devotion for her children and grandchildren was unparalleled and that will sustain the family in the days ahead without her. Also a special thank you to Mary Lepper, Marge, Ron, Terry, Ramona and Dyana for their loving concern.
