Mrs. Anne Vacca entered God’s heavenly kingdom and into the arms of the Lord on Saturday, October 28th, 2023, surrounded by her loving family.
Anne was born on February 21, 1932, to Joseph and Ann Fumagalli. Anne was a graduate of Saint Joseph’s Nursing School in Paterson, NJ, and practiced as a Registered Nurse for over 50 years. Her theme in life was to live with passion, purpose, and love. Anne was a strong woman who raised six successful children who are thankful for the life shared with her.
Anne had many adventures with friends and family. She enjoyed playing cards, watching criminal movies, and was the queen of Rummikub! She had lifelong friendships with women who supported one another through all that life threw their way.
Anne was predeceased by her parents, Ann and Joseph V. Fumagalli, her son Joseph Edward Vacca, and her grandson Robert W. Glover.
Left to cherish her memory are her beloved children, Anne Vacca Calabrese (Gary), Anthony R. Vacca, Paul J. Vacca (Cathy), Barbara J. Ragan, Thomas M. Vacca, Jean M. Vacca, and 12 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.
