Bruna Anello, 78, of Long Branch passed away Tuesday June 9th, surrounded by her loving family.
Born and raised in Battipaglia, Italy, Bruna immigrated to America in 1962. She worked as a seamstress for Ranco Manufacturing Company. Bruna met the love of her life, Vincent, and after 6 months they married on May 12, 1963 and settled in Long Branch to raise their family.
Bruna was an amazing wife, mother and grandmother. Her smile was electrifying to everyone she met. She was strong and courageous until the very end. Bruna loved cooking, especially Sunday meals, taking walks with her sisters and spending time with her grandchildren.
Bruna is survived by her husband, Vincent; her sons & daughters-in-law Salvatore & Judith and Vincent & Christine Anello, all of Howell; her grandchildren Nicholas, Christopher, Michael, Vincent, Marlie and Rylie; her sister Anna Patronelli; her nephew Dominick Patronelli and nieces Mary and Antoinette Gatto; Antoinette Brocklebank and Anna Marie Miceli and many other nieces and nephews. A special thank you to Virginia, her faithful home health aide, and to the many hospice nurses who have cared for Bruna during her illness.
