Jean Torrioni

Jean Torrioni (Perrone) passed away peacefully on June 24, 2021 at Suncoast Hospice Care Center of North Pinellas. She was 96 years old. Jean was born in Mount Vernon, New York on October 7, 1924 to Joseph and Mary Perrone.

She came from a family of 13 (8 boys and 5 girls) who have all predeceased her with the exception of her brother, Joseph Perrone. They were a very close family. She was a beloved wife of 67 years to the late, Gennaro (Honey) Torrioni. A loving mother to Geraldine + Alfred Fleming and Ferdinand + Linda Torrioni. She was lovingly called “JJ” by her grandchildren -Tara Jean + Drew Mann, Troy Fleming, Jennifer Canizio, and Christopher + Katie Torrioni. JJ was blessed with 6 great grandchildren -Jasmin, Alexi, Francesca, Michael, Sophia and Isabelle.

Jean worked hard for many years as a garment presser. Ultimately, she opened up her own dress manufacturing business called J&J Manufacturing. After retirement, she and Honey moved to Florida where they had many happy years together. She loved to travel (especially to Italy), bowl and create beautiful ceramic pieces for family and friends.
