Obituary of Theresa D Ognibene

OGNIBENE - Theresa D. (nee Mazzone) Of Kenmore, NY entered into rest June 4, 2022; Beloved wife of the late Anthony “Yogi” Ognibene; devoted mother of Jackie (David) Tomasello and Jill Kennedy; cherished grandmother of Nicole (Jonathan) McKissock, Michelle (Michael Johnson) Tomasello and Justin (Annie) Kennedy; adored great Gigi of Jace and Dylan McKissock; loving sister of Betty (late Anthony) Serio, Dorothy (late Anthony) Polizzi and predeceased by 11 siblings. Arrangements by LOMBARDO FUNERAL HOME (Northtowns Chapel), Amherst, NY. A Prayer Service will be held at Mt. Calvary Cemetery Chapel, 800 Pine Ridge Heritage Blvd., Cheektowaga, NY 14225 on Wednesday at 11 AM. Please assemble at the cemetery entrance. Theresa and Yogi owned the popular Sebastian’s Restaurant on Main St., downtown, where they served some famous clients. Theresa, known for her amazing pasta sauce, took her cooking skills into the kitchen of Catholic Academy of West Buffalo, where she became the kids’ favorite cook. She retired at 80 years old, with a big party at the school and hundreds of cards were made for her. Theresa went on to enjoy her retirement with family, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and of course, her frequent trips to the casino. Just a month after celebrating her 101st birthday, Theresa passed peacefully in her sleep at home. To our mom, grandma, and Gigi, we love you so much and will forever miss you.
