Marta Susanna Cozza, born and raised in Buenas Aires, Argentina, but living most of her adult life in Aston, Pennsylvania, passed away on May 3, 2022. Marta was born on December 24, 1946, to Anibal and Rosa Falabella. She met the love of her life, her spouse, Giovanni Cozza, and shortly thereafter started their family. In search of a better life for their children and opportunities to work hard and succeed, they emigrated to the United States and called South Philly their first home. Marta and Giovanni were blessed with three children, Luis, Fernando, and Vanessa. Marta was the pillar of her family. Though Giovanni worked from dawn to sunset, Marta ran the household and raised the children with bountiful love and fiercely supported them through the many highs and challenges of their lives. Marta was passionate about her Catholic faith, family, and cooking. Throughout her perfectly kept home one would see her faith vividly displayed, her grandchildren's photos in every room, hear in the background the cooking channel at one hundred decibels, and smell her amazing culinary skills in action. She loved entertaining her family and hosted many a summer picnics in her beautifully curated and flowered backyard. In her free time and when she was more active, she enjoyed traveling to Canada to visit family and especially loved splurging in Atlantic City with her husband after the children were grown. To say that her family will greatly miss her is an understatement. She gave everything for grandchildren, children, and husband—a love that is irreplaceable.
She is survived by her husband, Giovanni, sons Luis and Fernando, daughter Vanessa, an older sister Maria, three granddaughters, and two grandsons. Services will be held at Pagano Funeral Home in Garnet Valley on Wednesday, May 11 th . The viewing is from 10AM - 11AM, followed by a funeral liturgy at 11AM.
