Patricia Ann D’Agati


Patricia Ann (DeJackmo) D’Agati passed away suddenly on September 5, 2017.  Pat was born in Lyndhurst, New Jersey on February 18, 1940 to Salvatore and Mary (Banko) DeJackmo. 

She married the love of her life on May 5, 1962.  They were married for 50 wonderful years until Vince’s passing in May of 2012.

Pat was a devoted Mom and much adored Grandmother.  She raised her 4 children in Old Tappan, New Jersey and was extremely proud of her 6 grandchildren. 

Pat will be remembered most for her love of family, friends, golf and entertaining.  She and her husband Vince loved to cook and entertain for anyone who was willing to stop by.  Holidays were always big events and she decorated the house for every holiday imaginable.  The legacy she leaves behind is her unyielding commitment to her family.  She never missed an event her children were involved in and she did the same, for as long as she could, with her grandchildren as well.  Additionally, Pat worked as an Administrative Assistant in the Advertising Department at Toys R Us for many years after her children were grown, and she decorated the office for every holiday there as well!

Pat and Vince spent their retirement years enjoying life by playing golf and actively involving themselves in many social activities at a retirement community in Toms River, New Jersey.  She spent her last two years under the loving care of the staff at the Care One at the Cupola in Paramus, New Jersey.

Pat will be deeply missed by the children  Lisa (Ricky) Geerhart, John (Annmarie) D’Agati, Paul (Charlene) D’Agati, Amy (Mike) Luby and her grandchildren Anthony (Laura) Catena, Tyler D’Agati, Kaitlyn Luby, Connor D’Agati, Avery D’Agati and Ryan Luby.  She is also survived by her sisters Margaret (Gary) Naiman, Linda (Billy) Blemlek, Nanci (Max) McGuire, brother in law Charles (Mary Jane) D’Agati  and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Saturday at 10 AM at St. Anthony’s RC Church, Northvale with interment to follow at George Washington Memorial Park, Paramus. Visiting hours are Friday 2-4 & 7-9 PM at Pizzi Funeral Home, 120 Paris Ave, Northvale (201-767-3050).

    Dear Paul, Lisa, John and Amy and your families, We are shocked and very saddened to know of your mom’s sudden passing. I am sorry that we are unable to attend her wake or funeral due to my health problems, but we will keep all of you in our heartfelt thoughts and prayers. I have notified cousins Ronnie, Eileen, Suzanne, Joanne, and Kenny and all of them asked me to relay their sincerest sympathies to all of you. The obituary certainly is a beautiful tribute. I know you will have very happy memories of your mom to comfort you, and I believe she is finally at peace being with your dad again. Much love to all of you, Margaret Joy and Gary.

  3. Dear Lisa, Paul, John, and Amy,

    I babysat for the four of you when I was in HS and college. I remember your parents enjoying their time together… but, I also remember your mom having me play with the four of you outside, so she could clean house. With 4 little ones she was always making sure you had the Best of everything.

    They would laugh at all of the mischievous things the boys would do. While our little Lisa was always the caring big sister. Amy was always entertained by the three of you …

    You all loved playing on the swings and in your yard. But everything was tossed aside when Mom or Dad came outside.

    Love all of you,
