April 2, 1926-June 6, 2022 On June 6, Nancy Laudadio, devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away at the age of 96. Nancy married her cherished high school sweetheart, Joseph shortly after he returned from World War ll. She was born in Kearny N.J. and later moved to Upper Saddle River to raise her young family. Joe and Nancy would have been married 74 years this month. Joseph passed away on May 22,2022 and 24 days later, Nancy passed peacefully of a broken heart.
Nancy’s love of family was her driving passion. She was a proud homemaker who tirelessly cared for those she loved, leading with a smile and an honest word or two. She was determined, resilient and strong. Her colorful “GB” cookies and of course, her meatballs have been shared for decades around the family table. They will continue to be shared for generations to come.
She is survived by her two children Robert and Leah, her husband Paul, five grandchildren and their loving spouses, five great-grandchildren and her sisters Betty and Marilyn. A celebration of this loving couple Nancy and Joseph Laudadio, will be held at The Presentation Church in Upper Saddle River N.J. on Saturday, June 25, 2022 at 9:45 A.M. Memorial contributions can be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
