She was born May 11, 1927, in Rockford to Frank and Louisa Ziocchi. On July 27, 1947, Carmella was united in marriage with Anthony Mazzullo. Following her marriage, she lived for a short time in Bellwood and Forest Park before moving to McHenry for 11 years. Carmella retired to Hayward, WI, where she lived for 18 years. In Hayward, she thoroughly enjoyed having visitors and fishing – catching two small mouth bass that made the record books. Golfing was also a favorite pastime.
