Anna Mucci, 83, of Morganville, NJ passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 16th in her home surrounded by her family.
Anna was born on March 25th, 1940 to Salvatore and Gelsomina Tomasiello in San Lupo, Italy. Anna immigrated to the United States when she was 16 years old and settled in Matawan, NJ. It was there that she met her husband of 59 years, Paul Mucci and together they raised 4 children.
Anna worked as a master seamstress for many years, eventually owning her own business in Hazlet, NJ for 10 years before retiring to Punta Gorda, FL with her husband. Anna took great pride in cooking for her loved ones. She found joy in doing yard work and gardening. Anna loved watching the New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys, despite how much these teams drove her crazy. She was deeply dedicated to tradition and family. There was nothing she loved more than being surrounded by her family, especially her grandchildren and they loved their Nonna.
Anna was a devote Catholic. Anna often donated to St. Jude’s. She was a strong, caring woman who will be deeply missed by all those that were blessed to have her in their lives.
Anna was preceded in death by her son Joseph Anthony Mucci. She is survived by her beloved husband, Paul, by her loving children, Marie Wagner and her husband Tom, Lisa Mucci, and Joseph Mucci and his wife Antonia; and by her cherished grandchildren, Devon Kracke and her husband Joseph Kracke, Thomas Wagner and his fiancé Vanessa Myers, Paulie Wagner, Julia Hetzko, Joseph Mucci, Salvatore Mucci and great-grandchild, baby girl Kracke due in September.
