April 26, 1945 – July 2, 2022
Stephanie Scalzo – Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to all – entered her eternal rest on Saturday afternoon surrounded by her husband, children and their families in Las Vegas, Nevada.
A genuine New Yorker, who relocated with her daughter’s family to Las Vegas in 2014.
Stephanie’s life changed when she went on a blind date in the early sixties and met the love of her life, Frank Scalzo. They wed on September 24, 1966. Their marriage, built on true love and respect, spanned 55 years. Together, they raised their two children in their happy, energetic, and sometimes crazy home that they shared on Staten Island, NY. They took great pride in their family and always loved to entertain; from birthdays to pool parties, graduations, or just any excuse to have a celebration together with family. You never needed an invite.
Alongside her role as wife and mother, Stephanie wore many hats in her time, and she wore them exceptionally well; telephone operator, girl scout leader, real estate broker and hairdresser; but the role she was most proud of was grandmother.
Stephanie was pre-deceased by her parents Sam and Lucy Tutone, her sisters Rosalie Milazzo, Jeanette Pritchard, and Joanna Mastrandrea.
She is survived by her husband Frank Scalzo; her son Carl Scalzo and his wife Sabrina, their children Samantha, Francesca, Milena, and Marcello; her daughter Audrey Paoli and her husband Paul, their children Jessica, Paul, and Frank. She is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, and family members.
At Stephanie’s request, there will be no funeral or memorial service. Instead, she asked that friends and loved ones celebrate life and enjoy every minute that you have with your family.

Our deepest sympathy to you and your loving family.
We will cherish all the memories of Stephanie sitting outside watching the kids on block play and you always handing out a popsicle or two. Those memories should always make you smile because they are making me smile just leaving this note.
All our love to you all

What an amazing person. As my neighbor she was always there with advice and helpful hints. Generous and kind is how I will always remember Stephanie. She was there for us during and after Hurricane Sandy. Both her and Frank were truly the best and made us feel safe knowing they were there watching over us. She was a dynamo and there was nothing she could not do or accomplish. I will always remember her and wish her eternal peace. Love you Irene & Sally
