Ann Marie Palumbo

1944 ~ 2020 (age 76)


Ann Marie Palumbo, 76 of Hawthorne, NJ, passed away peacefully on Wednesday November 18, 2020. Lovingly referred to as “Zitzi”, she was a beloved sister to Marilyn Vanderhoven, aunt to Keri Bressler (Michael), and Jennifer Havey, and great aunt to Christopher and Daniel Bressler. To Ann Marie, Family was everything, and she loved nothing more than time spent with her sister, nieces, nephews, cousins, and of course, her many beloved dogs who she nurtured throughout her lifetime.

A proud Hoboken Native, Ann Marie moved to Union City at the age of 15, where she resided for 56 years before moving to Hawthorne, NJ. She was a devoted woman of faith and an active parishioner at the Church of the Nativity in Midland Park, where she attended mass regularly. She was also an active participant in the Festival of St. Ann in Hoboken, NJ for many years. Prior to her retirement, she spent her days as a supervisor of the Pension Department for Teamsters Local 560.

Ann Marie will be remembered for her love of family, warm smile, and big heart, and leaves behind many broken-hearted family and friends who were truly blessed to know her. She will be greatly missed.
