Carmen and Josephine Vendetti

March 11, 2015

Married for 57 years, Carmen and Josephine Vendetti built their MTOTSA home in 1960 as a summer residence for themselves and their three children.  As they had been planning for 29 years, they retired there in 1989—Carmen from 45 years as a truck driver and Josephine from a career as a school secretary.  The home is especially important to the Vendettis because they cherish the memories of the time they spent there with their children.  Having lost both sons in separate tragedies, the bungalow has now become a continuing reminder of their presence in the Vendettis’ lives.  Josephine said, “This home means everything to me.  It is my happiness.”
