Ida F. Daniele

July 23, 1956 ~ April 25, 2021 (age 64)


On Sunday, April 25th, Ida Frances Daniele went to Heaven to be reunited with her Mother, Brother, and dog, Pudgie. Though she battled medical challenges all her life, she would always think of helping others; knitting scarves and buying gloves for the homeless, and giving Christmas gifts to disadvantaged kids. Ida leaves behind a deeply loving family, many loyal friends, and a world that won’t be the same without her. Calling hours for Ida will be held from 4-7PM on Friday, April 30, 2021 at Forastiere Smith Funeral Home, 220 N. Main St., East Longmeadow. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10AM on Saturday, May 1st from Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, 123 William St., Springfield. A private interment will follow in St. Michael’s Cemetery, Springfield. For online condolences please visit
