Obituary of Lucille Ricciutti

Lucille Ricciutti (nee Comuso) age 89, of Hammonton, NJ passed away peacefully on Thursday May 13, 2021 surrounded by family at her home. Lucille was born in Philadelphia, PA where she lived most of her life until she moved to Hammonton, NJ, in the 1970s. She attended Little Flower School where she was proudly appointed “May Queen” in her 8th grade year. Her life in Hammonton began as a young girl when she would accompany her mom and sisters to work at a local farm every summer. Her roots in the town grew deeper after her sister married the farmer’s son. Eventually, they would build a home alongside each other and raise many children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews side-by-side. The last surviving member of her nine brothers and sisters, Lucille was known for her strength and unmatched devotion to her family. She held many jobs throughout her life, including as a soda jerk, records keeper at Temple Hospital, and lunch lady-though her proudest job was as a mother to many. Lucille is predeceased by her loving son, Stephen Rooney, parents, brothers, sisters, and husbands Louis Gene Ricciutti and George Rooney. Lucille is survived by her daughters, Marilyn Garvey, Cindy Neduchin, and Gina Mertis; daughter-in-law, Nancy Rooney; grandchildren, Jen Waltimeyer (Russ), Chrissy Berthel (Gary), Eric Neduchin (Lindsey), Holly Bock (Ken), Stephanie Pistone (Chris), Sara Verrillo (Rich), and Emmanuel and Stephen Mertis; great-grandchildren Sophia, Jackson, Mason, Nicholas, Daniel, Matthew, Gia, Christopher, Violet, and Oliver; and her many loving nieces, nephews, family and friends. Family and friends are invited to attend her viewing Tuesday, May 18, 2021 from 9:30am-11:00am at St. Mary of Mt. Carmel Parish – St. Anthony of Padua Church 285 Rt. 206 Hammonton, NJ.
