Devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Warm heart, quick smile and humor, pleasantly stubborn, leader. Creative and loved challenges, strong and fiercely independent. Predeceased by husband, Frank. Survived by daughter, Gail (Anthony, Jr.) Romano; and son, William (Elizabeth) Libera; grandsons, Matthew (Rebecca) Libera & Christopher (Laura) Libera; sister, Linda (Bernard) Liadka; special cousin, Darlene (James) deLeon, Aunt Frances Lolo, Uncle Joseph Kawalec; nieces, nephews, cousins, and many dear friends. She was born in, and a long time resident of, Fulton, NY. She graduated Fulton High School in 1950, and began working at Perkins Corner, where she met her future husband, Frank. After marrying in 1952, she then worked at Dilts. All the while thereafter, she was most interested, and respectfully involved, in her children’s and grandsons’ lives, yet still allowed them the freedom to grow into their own unique individuality. Hers was a life well-lived, and committed to excellence. Many of her personal interests included becoming an avid golfer as a member of Beaver Meadows, where she had a hole-in-one. She expertly sewed countless beautiful quilts - many for each family member, as well as donating some for fund-raising. She was active in several quilt guilds, was president of one, and taught classes in order to share her enjoyment with others. She was also constantly knitting mountains of every type of garment imaginable, voraciously reading, baking delicious cookies, and helping others in some way or another. In 2012, she moved to Ashton Place Senior Living Community in Clifton Springs, NY, where she enjoyed some of the truly happiest years of her life. Her family cannot thank their entire staff enough for their incredible care, amazing professionalism, and genuine affection displayed toward her. She also loved, and was grateful for, her compassionate doctors and their staff members helping her all through her life. It is beyond description the huge void we now feel in our hearts while trying to continue without her, left only with the many memories of her ever-present energy and determination. She will be missed more than words could ever express. Per her wishes, no service will be held. Please log on to obits.syracuse. com to sign the guestbook and create a memory for the family. Arrangements have been entrusted to the R.A. Patrick Funeral Home, Clifton Springs, NY.

OBITUARIES &INMEMORIAMS SHAREYOURCONDOLENCES|SIGNAGUESTBOOK|SHAREMEMORIES ONLINEATWWW.DEMOCRATANDCHRONICLE.COM/LEGACY will be implemented: Growth of a s alesman Salesmen can represent multiple craft beverage manufacturers. It will a llow for increased distribution for small-craft producers and also provide m ore opportunities for the salesmen to join the g rowing industry, which now supplies 45,000 vendors and has a $27 billion economic impact in the state. Brian McKenzie, president of the state Distillers G uild and owner of Finger Lakes Distilling in Schuyler County, said he is looking forward to “showing how these changes can lead to economic benefits for the state like additional jobs, tourism promotion and support of local agriculture.” One-stop m anufacturing Multiple craft manufacturers can now have branch offices at the same l ocation, allowing for a g roup of craft brewers to share the same space and l ower the operating costs w hile increasing more retail outlets for craft products. T hey also will be allowed to do “contract brewing,” which lets s mall breweries use the facilities of a larger producer to manufacture b eer. Jason Barrett, head d istiller and president of Black Button Distilling in Rochester, said contract b rewing allows “a way for small breweries to reduce the challenges of growth a nd meet demand by brewing on a larger scale u sing world-class equipment and industry best practices.” Fewer permits, more tastings Marketing permits will be updated so brewers can purchase beer used in tastings at a retail location —a move that should add more tastings at a less cost. Also, tastings at wine schools and other alcoholic beverage education classes will now be permitted. The state also will help n onprofit club licensees serve nonmembers and a llow craft beverage tasting permits for nonprof- its. Brew it yourself Home-wine-making centers will be authorized. The Liquor Author- i ty can now issue permits to wineries and farm wineries to operate as “home w inemaking” centers, where customers can receive advice from experts a nd use the winery’s equipment to produce w ine for personal consumption. Meanwhile, off-prem- i ses beer retailers will now be allowed to fill orders for growlers at a w arehouse rather than having to conduct the act ivity at their licensed locations. Think summer bars Fees will be lowered for seasonal bars. For ins tance, the Liquor Authority will authorize a prorated fee for “add bars” so retailers can operate a bar on a seasonal basis, such as an outdoor patio or deck that can operate for afee based on the months it will be open. Also, the rules for raffles and other chance- based-games conducted b y retailers will be clarified. The new guidance w ill allow nonprofit organizations to conduct fundraising activities in a r etail establishment in acc ordance with state law. NMUSCAVAGE@Gan- n Brewers Continued from Page 1A family’s vineyard in Italy. A ndrew, who died in 2 004, moved to Rochester from Gaeta, Italy, as a teenager. Ann was born in Rochester, the daughter of immigrant parents. I n the decades that fol- l owed, Casa Laga Vineyards has been recognized for producing some of the best wines in the Finger Lakes region. The C olaruotolo family al- w ays remained at the heart of theoperation, and it was a reflection of their daily life. “My father had a big g arden at the bottom of the hill where he planted tomatoes and radicchio and rappi,” said O’Neill. “These were all things that we ate at home.” T he rappis were originally one of the three Rs Mrs. C offered up, but a bad crop one year forced t hem to substitute raviolis —a decision that seems to have been a popular one. “ These raviolis are delicious,” said Matt Silverman, 33, of Canandaigua, one of those who visited Casa Larga on Sunday. “Good food and good wine are just a way to help bring people together,” S ilverman added. “They clearly understand that here.” O’Neill agreed with that assessment. “Food and family are w hat we’re all about,” she said. “We try to extend that into everything we do, whether you’re here f or a wine tasting or a wedding or some other event. We want to make e veryone feel welcome.” Sunday’s event was an opportunity for friends and family, staff and cus- tomers to share their memories of Mrs. C, to talk about her warm heart, her generosity, and h er love for her extended family. It was clear from those who came on this afternoon that she was loved and will be missed. B ut it’s also clear that her spirit remains, both in the business she helped to build and in the hearts of t hose she touched. SLAHMAN@ G TINA MACINTYRE-YEE/@TYEE23/STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER Andrea O’Neill talks about her mother and continuing the tradition of the 3 Rs at Casa Larga in Penfield. Mrs. C would serve radicchio, ravioli and Riesling. O’Neill is with her son, Thomas, 8. TINA MACINTYRE-YEE/@TYEE23/STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER The parking spot for Mrs. C, Ann Colaruotolo, is still reserved by the Casa Larga office. Mrs. Colaruotolo died in September. Mrs. C Continued from Page 3A Sen. Charles Schumer is calling for federal authorities to routinely test a nd require full disclo- s ure of components in H alloween makeup. The New York Democrat says novelty makeup and face paint are often made in China and can contain metals that could p ose a danger to children wearing them. According to Schumer, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found all 10 f ace paints it tested con- t ained lead and six con- t ained nickel, cobalt and/ or chromium. Lead is banned from makeup in Canada and Europe, but not in the U.S. The U.S. Food and D rug Administration doesn’t conduct routine testing of novelty cosmetics and needs to do more to enforce required disc losures of ingredients, S chumer said. S chumer says parents should check what glitter, lipstick and other cosmetics go on their children’s faces this Halloween. Schumer urges review of Halloween makeup safety ASSOCIATED PRESS
