Patricia Giandomenico Acker

(1941 - 2015)

Pat graduated Woodbury High School in 1959. The first Wednesday of every month, she and her classmates would meet for lunch. As a 10th grader she was lucky enough to meet the late Russell Giandomenico at a school dance. The two of them danced together until his death in 1998. She was the east coast baton twirling majorette. She could twirl two fire batons while blind folded and never singed a hair. But her greatest claim to fame were the banana split dinners and turkey hoagies for Thanksgiving. They raised their children in Woodbury Heights and decided to move to Florida. After four years they came home and repurchased their house on Alliance Street. That dance produced three children, Russell (Lisa), Rick (Cindi), and Christine (Joseph) Petsch; grandchildren Knoell (Rob) Giandomenico, Joseph Petsch, Gabrielle, Gavin, Sophia, Rick and Vincenzo Giandomenico.

A graveside service to celebrate 74 great years will be held Thursday, June 11 at 11 A.M. at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Woolwich Twp.
In lieu of flowers donations to offset the cost may be made to c/o Newfield Bank, to the account of Christine Petsch.

    To my cousin’s, I am so very sorry that we lost 1 beautiful woman in our lives.As you know she was my godmother but she was more then that in my eyes.We would call each other up & talk for 30mins to 1hour.I could tell her everything & anything.She knew how to make me laugh if she could tell if something was wrong with me.The last time I talked to her I told her that I was gone to have a granddaughter that is due next month.She was so happy to hear that.I am gone to miss talking to her,her laugh & her goofy sense of humor.I loved spending time at your house when I was young when we would visit.I will always have those memories.She will forever be with all us until we meet again.I love & miss her as the days go by.Like she always said “See you later” & “Talk to you later”.It’s never goodbye.She will always look down on us & keep us guided.May she R.I.P.love you all

    i am at a loss for words! I am so so sorry for your loss. She was a funny woman, she had a great sense of humor and a big smile on her face- she will be missed by many. One of my fondest memories of your Mom & Dad was when they lived in Fl. & dropped by to visit me at my fist apartment down by the beach & both your mom & dad were joking around with Russ & Rick about getting a bachelor pad on the beach when they grow up and your mom piped up & said “forget them, I want the beach pad”!! Your Mom & Dad were my “cool” cousins- they were always young at heart! I hope you all find comfort in your memories- I am sure you have a ton of great ones! Jeanne and I send our love, prayers and thoughts to all of you. If you guys need anything- do not hesitate.

    As a fellow Woodbury High graduate I do remember Pat’s great smile and her baton twirling abilities, and I truly appreciated her taking the time to call me last November. I am so sorry to hear of her sudden passing. My sincere sympathy to all her friends and family.
