Patricia A. Cuozzo, (nee Ricketts) 80, of Whiting, passed away Saturday, November 23, 2019 peacefully at her home. Born in the Bronx, NY she lived in Toms River before moving to Whiting 20 years ago. Patricia was a purchasing agent for North Shore Towers in Floral Park, NY for 15 years before retiring. She was a wonderful wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and loving friend. She was a communicant of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, Whiting and loved her congregation. She was often seen in the front row, greeting parishioners, handing out church missalettes and offering her brand of love, generosity and kindness to all.
Patricia’s deep and dedicated love of her family, friends, and even those that she just met was what made her so special to everyone. Her infectious yet disarming personality was so powerful to all that came in contact with her which was especially evident at holiday gatherings, visits to her Son’s homes, along with simple but oh so special breakfast and dinner get togethers at her favorite places. Patricia was simply one of a kind and will be sorely missed by all.
Patricia is survived by her husband of 20 years, Frank Cuozzo; five children and their spouses, Michael and Linda Rosas, Matthew and Susan Rosas, Mark and Kim Rosas, Mary Fortunato (Cuozzo) and Melissa and Michael Skarzynski; her nine grandchildren, Frankie, Erica, Marissa, Benjamin, Vincent, Matthew Sr., Janell, Melissa, and Ania and two great-grandsons, Matthew Jr. and Jaxon.
A Memorial Mass will be held on Tuesday, December 10th at 10:45am at the All Saints Chapel of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton RC Church, 30 Schoolhouse Rd, Whiting, NJ 08759.
