Antoinette J. Frizzera, 90, homemaker, sales clerk

September 13, 2005

Antoinette J. Frizzera, a homemaker who enjoyed cooking and entertaining, died from complications of dementia Thursday at Chapel Hill Nursing Center in Randallstown. She was 90.

The former Antoinette Lombardo was born and raised in West Baltimore, and was educated in city public schools. During the 1930s, she was a sales clerk at Rabai Bakery on Edmondson Avenue.

She was married in 1938 to James Vincent Frizzera, a baker and carpenter who died in 1987.

After her children were grown, Mrs. Frizzera worked during the 1960s and early 1970s in the dress and fur salon at Hochschild Kohn department stores at Edmondson Village Shopping Center and Security Mall.

A longtime Sykesville resident before moving to the nursing home last year, she was known for her cooking, including shrimp Italiano and homemade ravioli. "She also made a wonderful sour beef and dumplings," said her daughter, Mary Anne Hucek of Baltimore.

Mrs. Frizzera was a member of two Carroll County senior citizen clubs, and an avid poker player. She was also an accomplished seamstress and wrote poetry.

She was a communicant of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Eldersburg.

Services were held Saturday.

Other survivors include a son, John B. Frizzera of Sykesville; two brothers, Vincent Lombardo of Ellicott City and Joseph Lombardo of Arbutus; two grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
