Nina Pistone

September 29, 1925 — January 27, 2017

Nina Pistone of Pelham passed away peacefully on Friday, January 27. She was 91 years old. Nina was born in New York City to Anthony and Germana "Jennie" Taranto.

Nina and Pat worked at the Tuxedo Hair Salon in the Bronx, which they established together.
