Obituary for Lillian Ann Ferrari (Ardissone)
Lillian Ann Ferrari, 96, of Holiday City Carefree section of Berkeley Twsp., NJ died on Thursday July 20, 2017 at her home. She was born in Hoboken, NJ and lived in Berkeley Twsp., NJ. Lillian enjoyed creating lovely outfits on her old faithful Singer and excelled in crochet. Over the years, she won several awards from local military charities for babies. Her 4 grandchildren were kept cozy every winter wearing lovely sweaters crochet by their grandmom. She was quite an artist, painting with oils. Several lucky friends and family members have been gifted over the years with her original paintings. When her husband passed, Lillian became a frequent quarter dropper in Atlantic City casinos. Lillian often enjoyed the senior bus trips to the casinos. She and her three sisters formed a NYC theatre fund and when the kitty was full they would enjoy dinner and a Broadway play out and about the town!
Lillian is predeceased by her parents Dominic and Angelina Ardissone, her husband Louis G. Ferrari and her siblings Peter, Joseph, Philip, and Dominic Ardissone and Lucy Busacco.
Surviving is her daughter Madeleine Ferrari Bartel; her sisters Edith and Mildred Ardissone; her grandsons Alexander Ferrari Bartel, Craig, Bryan and Francis DiIenno and her 10 great grandchildren.
Special gratitude is given to Johnamae Hardy for many, many years of wonderful loving care.
