Elita Lily Salustro
Lily Salustro died peacefully at her home in Grosse Pointe, Michigan on March 21, 2022. She was born in Detroit December 6, 1923. She is survived by children Anita of City of Grosse Pointe, MI, Larry of Vero Beach FL, Gregory of Galisteo NM, and Nancy of Shrewsbury MA. She is predeceased by her loving husband of 27 years, Gary. Lily was devoted to her seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren, a lifelong opera fan, and friend and confidant to all. Services will be held at a later date. Contributions may be made to Michigan Opera Theater.
"During our 50-year friendship, I learned of Lily's many gifts. Besides her talent in the kitchen and skill with the needle, she understood and appreciated opera and literature. Still, she had a greater gift . . .
A while ago, upon learning I was sick, Lily lamented that we didn't live closer. "I would care for you," she said. That was Lily's greater gift - she would care for you.
Rest In peace, Elita. You will live in our hearts.
