Lyda Gloria (Palmieri) Scalzo of Columbus, NY, passed away in Utica, NY on September 30, 2019.
Born in Utica on January 7, 1933, she was the daughter of the late Nicola Palmieri and the late Marietta (Vitullo) Palmieri. Lyda graduated from T.R. Proctor High School, and later worked as an account clerk in the Oneida County Planning Department. She was always good with numbers and took pride in her ability to keep the ledgers balanced to the penny.
Lyda married Ralph Angelo Scalzo Sr. in 1956, and they had a son, Ralph Angelo Scalzo Jr., in 1957. Ralph Sr. and Ralph Jr. were the two loves of her life. Lyda cherished her family above all else, which included her beloved daughter-in-law, Diane Patricia (Crotty) Scalzo; her “favorite” (and only) granddaughter, Kayleigh Marie Scalzo; her grandson-in-law – and favorite chef -- Gregory Lee Swain; and the entire Magro family, who were close to her heart. In the later years of her life, Lyda also enjoyed nothing more than spending time with her grand-dog Gianna and great-grand-dog Murph.
Lyda was an entertainer – she loved talking to people and cooking for them. Everywhere she went, she had people laughing – even up to the very end. Her family will remember her joyfully cooking up a storm, usually singing and dancing to her treasured Frank Sinatra as she went, always eager to try out a new recipe. Lyda brought love, happiness, and light into the lives of everyone around her, and she will be dearly missed.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Noon on Friday, October 4, 2019 at St. Malachy’s Church, East State St., Sherburne, followed by interment in St. Malachy’s Cemetery.
There are no calling hours.
In lieu of flowers, please recall a happy time that Lyda touched your life and consider a donation in her memory to a charity you support.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Burgess & Tedesco Funeral Home, 10 S. Main St., Sherburne.

Uncle Ralph, Ralph Jr., Diane, Kayleigh & Greg,
Please accept my deepest, heartfelt sympathies at this most difficult time. I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Aunt Lyda. And although time and miles have come between all of us, I have so many good memories of the times spent with her & you, Uncle Ralph, as a child at Dad's (Rocco's) and your house.
I hope all of your memories of her keep your hearts full and that in time, the sadness is replaced by smiles and funny stories. She always put a smile on my face. Miss and love you all - take care. Shelly
