Obituary of Deborah Ann Danese
Deborah Ann Danese
Deborah A. (D’Aloia) Danese, 66, of Rockaway, NJ passed away peacefully on December 13, 2023, with her three children by her side.
Deborah (Debbi) was born on May 28, 1957, in Summit, NJ and raised in East Orange, NJ by the late Mr. John and Rose D’Aloia. Debbi was dedicated wife, mother, Lolli and friend. Debbi’s most significant accomplishment was her role as a homemaker for her three children.
She is now reunited with her late husband Frank Sr. She is survived by her children Frank Jr. and Zlata Danese, Erica and Michael Companion, Ashley and Joe Santino. Her six cherished grandchildren: Nico John, Lia Rose, Avery Ryan, Sophia Rose, Mason Anthony, and Joise Rain -they were her most precious gifts.
Debbi is survived by her brother Anthony D’Aloia and wife Vonsina, her sister Anna with her late husband Winfred Blue Lovett, and her brother John D’Aloia Jr. and fiancé Dorthy. Followed by several loving nieces, a nephew, great nieces, a great nephew, a great great nephew, cousins, sisters-in-law, and numerous good friends and most importantly her dear friend of over 53 years Paula DePeri, that never left her side from day one.
Though it’s impossible to enumerate all her qualities, her smile, outgoing personality, and sense of humor were just a few. For all of you that knew Debbi knew what a kind loving soul she was. She was the best listener, a shoulder to cry on, and could always count on her to give the best advice. She was the best mother, Lolli, friend, and aunt in the whole world. She had the biggest heart and would give you the shirt off her back. If you ever had the pleasure to meet Debbi, you were the lucky one.
Her absence will be deeply felt, and life will never be the same without her.
Go dancing in the sky with Daddy…..Gloria!
