Annina Raimondo

Annina Raimondo

Anna was born in Italy and came to America with her two young daughters to join her husband Gelsomino. They settled in Newark, NJ and were blessed with 2 two sons. Anna retired from Hartz’s Mountain at the age of 76 and settled in Manahawkin, NJ. The typical Italian mother and grandmother, you could always find her in the kitchen cooking and baking. She enjoyed the outdoors and sitting on her porch swing greeting friends and neighbors. She loved growing her vegetable garden and flowers, playing bingo, and taking trips to the casino. 

But, her greatest joy was being surrounded by her family and making sure they were well fed.

She was the wife of the late Gelsomino and mother of Teresa Dougherty (Fred), Rosa Sanclaria, (Peter), Orlando Raimondo (Victoria), Antonio Raimondo (Tina), grandmother of : The late Lawrence Leeds, Christina Dougherty, Cynthia McNally, Lisa Lopes, Antonio  Raimondo, the late Albert(AJ) Plasket, Christopher and Dimitri Lodin, Leah and Dana Raimondo and great grandchildren, Annina, Emily, Frankie, Rocky, Jade, Ploy, Ace, Bella, and Madeline.  She is survived by many relatives in Italy.

    I love you mommy. You were only 3 years old when you lost your mother and you really never remembered her.You spoke about her often and it always broke my heart to hear that Nonna died when you were so young. You are at peace now and surrounded by your mother’s loving arms. I am blessed that I had you for 68 wonderful years. Thank you for being my mother. I couldn’t have asked for better. You took good care of me always. You were so loved by so many friends in Newark and then in Manahawkin and finally in Mantua. You are home now. RIPOSA IN PACE MOMMA. REST IN PEACE MA. Love you til the day I die.

    Amelia (AJs maternal grandmother) and I only met her a few times, but I could feel a tangible aura of love and support that surrounded her. The last time Amelia saw her, she grabbed Amelia’s hand and closed her eyes like she was projecting her energy to help ease Amelia’s pain from AJs passing. Now she’s with her grandson, and that energy will always be with Amelia.
