  1. I haven’t seen Philomena since my wedding in 1980. Her lovely daughter, Angela was my flower girl. I met Philomena at my grandparent’s house when I was little. My grandparents were Antonio and Angelina Iacono. They first lived on Broomall Street in Chester and ran the The Broomall Bar. Then they moved to Mac Dade Blvd. in Woodlyn. I remember Philomena as a beautiful and kind woman. I also remember her sister Angelina. I was saddened to learn of her passing. My prayers are with you, John, and Philomena’s children Angela and John Jr. May she rest in peace.
