Monno Family, Then & Now

Pasquale Monno didn't want to be a farmer in Wisconsin when he left Sicily but he wanted Jennie Zappa and in order to marry her that was what he must do. Jennie Zappa was from a family of 10 children and they had 15, most of them pictured at Lake Phalen, St. Paul, MN, in an annual family reunion. Their daughter, Jennie Monno, married Mario Ranelli, son of Concettina Di Nino & Sam, after WWII. Sam fought for the American Army in WWI in the Meuse Argonne front and Mario was in the Army Air Corps in WWII in Nome, Alaska, and Keflavik, Iceland. I am the product of that baby boomer wedding, as were Mario II, Geno & Denise. homepage.mac.com/ranelligregory For family tree Go to Sharing Files Documents Download
