Word translation

Could you tell me if the fu in front of Antonina Serio's name means that she is the deceased wife of Giuseppe Sanfilippo?

Thank you,
Diane

Hi Diane,

the word "fu" immediately before or after a name does indeed mean that person was deceased.

I have seen this "FU" in front of just a last name in a letter addressed to the living spouse. =Peter=
