Gilmore age 76, of Lewes, DE passed away on Friday, July 26, 2019 at Delaware Hospice Center, in Milford, DE, after fighting kidney disease for the past year with every ounce of her strength. She was born on April 14, 1943 in the Bronx, NY, daughter of the late Dominic and Dora Caggiano. Tana raised her family in Darien, CT.

Tana later transitioned to selling residential real estate, rising to Vice President and Manager of Country Living Associates in Darien. She was committed to community service and was a member of the Darien Representative Town Meeting and President of the Darien Kiwanis Club. Tana relocated to Lewes in 2007. Blessed with a strong commitment to community service, she served on the Board of the Friends of Lewes Library, as a volunteer at Lewes Presbyterian Church Soup Ministry, as well as the Children's Beach House and Lewes in Bloom. Tana also enjoyed a variety of classes at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, sponsored by the University of Delaware in Lewes. Tana and her husband traveled widely, discovering her maternal roots in Sicily, as well as visiting many other European destinations. Her large family and legion of friends will forever remember her love of family, spirit, and zest for life. Tana leaves behind her beloved husband of 57 years, Bernie Gilmore; her sons: Bernie Gilmore, Jr. (Linda), Steve Gilmore (Gwen), and Chris Gilmore (Frescia); her nine grandchildren; her four (soon to be five) great-grandchildren; her sister; and many nieces and nephews.
