My grandfather was Joseph (Buck) Palmisano from Gretna La who married my grandmother,
Lillian Kerner. They lived in the Belle Chasse and old Gretna areas. They owned
a grocery store. My grandfather Buck passed away in the early- to mid 1950s
My grandparents had 4 children together: Barabra Ann Palmisano Kirkpatrick,
Leroy Palmisano ( married to GeorgeAnn?, Joel Kent Palmisano (my father) married Ruby Ehrhard, And Wayne M. Palmisano who married my mother's sister Sandra. My father passed away from Hodgkin's lymphoma in 6/96 at age 55, my uncle Wayne passed this pass June from Adult Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. My grandmother, Lillian had previously been married to Charles Hopel and they had 5 children together some of whom as listed as Palmisano on this site. They are Charles (Jennifer)& Charlene (Angelo Paternostro), Ray Eunice), Gilbert (Lucille), Clayton (Edna) Palmisano. My mother and aunt are unaware of my grandfather having had another child. I wonder is this the same Joseph? My grandfather was baptized At Mater dolo Rosa and I have that certificate. I plan on attending the Palmisano meeting in New Orleans tonight and look forward to meeting some of my relatives! Whew so much to digest!
