Anne Erma Bruno Marcelli of West Long Branch passed away peacefully on the morning of February 16th, 2023 at the age of 93. Anne was born into a large Italian family in Red Bank and grew up in Little Silver amongst an extensive circle of friends and relatives. She stayed in the area throughout her life except for the occasional move to Florida. She dedicated more than 40 years of her life to working for the U.S. government at Fort Monmouth, and she was devoted to her family and her faith.
Anne was beloved by everyone who knew her. Her warm and engaging personality, along with her animated and infectious style of telling a story made her impossible not to adore. She enjoyed her life – whether it was spending time with her family, cooking some Italian favorites, listening to her cherished Frank Sinatra, or just watching a movie on the Hallmark Channel, Anne always had a delighted smile on her face.
Anne was predeceased by her husband, Oliver, and her three brothers, Fred, Gerald, and Robert (Bruno). She is survived by her children, Frank, Patricia, and Melanne; daughter-in-law, Patricia; grandchildren, John, Melissa, Lauren, Brandon, Joelle, Caitlin, and Siobhan; and great-grandchildren Joey, Rocco, Carly, Bella, and Vera.
A Memorial Gathering will be held on Tuesday, February 21st, 2023 from 3pm until 6pm at Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St, Red Bank, New Jersey.
