Annunziata was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister devoted to caring for her family. She had also been a seamstress in Dumont, NJ for many years before retiring. She enjoyed gardening, cooking, sewing at home and playing with her grandchildren too.

She wanted us to know we have all learned from her ways, and that we have respected her every wish and need. Heaven awaits her arrival, especially Angelo, our great father who had worked so diligently to see our mother’s wishes and needs fulfilled. They will all be waiting for her arrival at the table of our Lord, to eat fish, break bread, and drink wine, welcoming our mother, Annunziata Poggiogalle, who was the greatest mother we will ever know. Hugs and kisses, never enough in my family in heaven, never enough.
