Louise Carol Milanese, of Brookfield, Ohio, heard a voice call upon her “well done good and faithful servant” on Tuesday, April 19, 2022, while she was at home and surrounded by the love of her family. She was 70.
Louise was born in Youngstown, Ohio, on March 11, 1952, a daughter to Vincent Joseph & Margaret (Carducci) Bellanca, Sr.
She graduated in 1970 from Cardinal Mooney High School. Louise had worked as an Executive Assistant for the City of Youngstown, where she dedicated 40 years to the Economic Development Department before she retired.
A loyal member of the Victory Christian Center, Lowellville, Ohio, she was very active with the worship praise band, displaying her gifts on the piano and guitar. She loved her Lord and Savior! In addition, she also helped many people who struggled with addiction during her time at Meridian Place.
In her spare time, Louise enjoyed music, baking, especially making cookie tins to give away, and traveling to visit family. However, spending time with her family brought her the most joy.
Survivors include: her husband, Dominic Rocco Milanese, Sr., whom she married September 4, 1993; her children, Denise (Dewey) Jamieson, of Brookfield, and Dominic Rocco Milanese, Jr., of Atlanta, Georgia; her grandchildren, David , Zachary, Gabrielle, & Lillian Jamieson; her great-grandson, Liam; her siblings, Joanne M. Baltes, of Canfield, Ohio, Margie Roberts, of Columbus, Ohio, and Rev. Vincent J. Bellanca, Jr. (Beverly Crawford-Bellanca), of Hermitage, Pennsylvania; her step-mother, Cheryl Bellanca; as well as her many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and by her sister, Anna Rudiak.
