She also leaves three sons, all of whom were brothers she and her husband adopted from Turin, Italy in the early 1960s, Gerard J. Zarella, Brookfield, Alfred W. Zarella and his wife, Tina Wortman of Wooster, Ohio and John-Carl Zarella and his wife, Diane Hopkins, of Clarkston, Mich.; six grandchildren, Andrew Zarella and his wife, Meghan; Robert Zarella and his wife, Amber; Melissa Zarella Davis and her husband, Ryan; Christina Zarella Miles and her husband, Devin; and Katlin and Krystal Zarella; six great-grandchildren, Dominic, Michael, Morgan, Chloe, Addison and Taylor; two sisters, Norina Farkas, Brookfield and Jeanette Arcade, Masury; a brother, Dominic Camerlengo and his wife, Mary, of Masury; several nieces and nephews and many god-children.
