An Italian immigrant, she married Signor Brasi and they lived together in Rhode Island where they had a son. Their marriage was happy at first until he began to drink and beat his wife, leading her to have an affair with local schoolteacher Mr. Lowry. When her husband discovered this, he stabbed her womb causing her to have a miscarriage before being beaten to death by Luca, who later pushed Lowry off a roof.
She later moved to New York City with her son, living an unhappy life, killing herself when Luca was arrested in 1934.
