It was a pleasure to meet and care for Osmana at the Primary Care office. She was a dear lady and she was always so kind to all of us in the office. May she Rest In Peace.

We will truly miss our cousin Osmana. Our many nightly conversations reflected her gentle character and beauty. Our deepest sympathy to Irene, John and Elizabeth.

I first met Osmana when she was going through breast cancer. She was a regular attendee to the MV Cancer Support Group and quickly made friends with so many of us. She was one of the loveliest and kindest people I know, always smiling and helpful in any and every way. She and Herbert were such a sweet couple- As sad as I am to hear about her death, I am glad that she and he are back together again. My sincere condolences to her daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter

Oh I am so heartbroken to hear this. I last saw Osmana on Christmas Day and she seemed out of sorts. She and my Mother met at Cancer Support Group and became fast friends. I will never forget the amazing gardens and food she and Herbert had in their enclosed garden. Osmana had such a great sense of humor- though she kept it quietly. She and Mom were movie buddies. Moms personal trainer told me after she had died she and her husband were at the Capawok and ran in to Mom and Osmana after the show. The show was Ted- yes the Marky Mark one about the bear. Mom and Osmana were in giggles afterwards. God bless her. Ti Amo. Xoxos

Dear Irene and family, I am an intern at the Island Counseling Center and provided support and music therapy for your mother over the past three months. She was always a delight to spend time with. I loved hearing her stories about your father, Osmano, and you. Talking about her family always brought a smile to her face. Even in her last days she had a twinkle in her bright blue eyes and a smile or giggle when I played guitar and she sang along to some of her old favorite songs. I will miss her but know she will be in a peaceful place now. Warm regards, Susan Warren

Osmana Bianchi exuded more welcome warmth than a wood stove in winter. I am so sorry that the world has lost this wonderful spirit. Her bright eyes and ready smile attracted me from the first moment I saw her. I had never met anyone as charming, so quietly magnetic, so quickly a friend. I looked forward to any meeting with her, couldn't resist hugging her. She made me - and anyone fortunate enough to meet her - smile. A lot. My sympathies to all who mourn her passing.

Dear Irene & Family, Ray and I are sorry to hear of the passing of both of your parents. They were both wonderful people. Your mom was like a grandmother to my children when they were small. Always giving encouraging words,smiles,hugs and kisses. Both of your parents reminded me of my grandparents who had a large garden and shared it with the community. I will always carry fond memories of them and I hope your happy memories will be of comfort during these difficult times. sincerely Tricia & Ray

I met Osmana through our mutual friend Barbara Babcock. We spent many Independence Days together on Martha's Vineyard, where her contribution to the pot luck was often a pie or a sardine platter and always a warm, engaging smile. It was a delight to spend time with her, catching each other up on our lives. She is a part of my life on the Vineyard and it will be sad not to see her the next time I'm there.
