Savastano, Anne (nee Pisacreta), age 92 of Paterson at rest in Paterson on May 4, 2022. Beloved wife of John F. Savastano for 74 years. Loving mother of John H Savastano & his wife Linda of Naples, FL., David Savastano & his wife Joyce of Totowa and Scott Savastano & his wife Eileen of Mantoloking. Dear grandmother of Christopher, Alexa and Nicholas Savastano and Brian & Jeff Calahan. Also survived by 7 great grandchildren. Dear sister of the late Frank Saveriano, James Saveriano, Linda Tordini, and Louise Fronzaglia. Born in Paterson, Anne was a lifelong resident. She was a homemaker who’s culinary skills were exemplary as well as a self taught seamstress. Anne could use her sewing machine better than most well seasoned professionals to alter even the most challenging dress or jacket. She would do that gladly for anyone who requested her services. She also served as the family emergency barber/beautician.
Anne loved watching old movies and was an encyclopedia of facts especially on actors and actresses from the 1940s and the 1950s. She enjoyed gardening and had an uncanny ability to grow roses from rose twigs. She also maintained a garden whose crops were so bountiful that it would keep the family supplied with vegetables and marinara sauce through the winter and into the next planting season.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend a graveside service at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery Mausoleum, 52 Totowa Road, Totowa, on Monday at 11:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Bonaventure R.C. Church, 174 Ramsey Street Paterson, NJ would be appreciated. Arrangements are by Festa Memorial Funeral Home 111 Union Blvd. Totowa.
