Obituary for Anne R. Adamo (Ficarra)

ANNE R. ADAMO, 71, born Anne Rose Ficarra, made her journey to Heaven on Monday, February 11, 2019. She was a devoted wife to Joseph for 49 years; loving mother to John, Jennifer, and Joseph, Jr.; mother-in-law to Dawn, Tom, and Carrie; and proud grandmother to Emily, Avery, Isabella, Ruby, Jack, and Jo-Jo. Anne also leaves behind her brother Joseph and many cousins, nieces, and nephews, along with her dear friends, whom she considered family.
Whether it was cruising to the islands, taking an overnight trip to Atlantic City, or spending the day shopping with her girlfriends, Anne lived life to the fullest. Her presence could fill a room with joy and laughter. She dearly loved her family, making each time together a special one. If you were lucky, she would bring a tray of her seven-layer cookies, her legendary coffee cake, or her famous potato salad.
Anne had a special way of bringing smiles to the faces of all who knew her. She will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
In Anne's honor, treat yourself to a nice cup of coffee and a piece of chocolate cake. Please don't cry because she's gone. Instead, be happy that she was here ... OK, maybe cry a little. After all, this was Anne (with an "E").
