Obituary of Lena Allocco
Lena Capobianco Allocco, 91, of Madison, NJ passed away on February 26, 2021 peacefully at home. Lena was born on May 14, 1929 in Newark to the late Agostina and Michael Capobianco. She grew up on South Seventh Street in Newark, NJ and moved to Madison, NJ in 1957 with her husband Michael Allocco.
Lena was an extraordinary and loving mother to her three girls. Before marriage to her husband Michael, Lena worked at Allied Chemical as a phone operator. In her youth, she was a bobby-soxer, going to Frank Sinatra’s concerts with her best friend Dora. She grew up in a loving family of 9 siblings after her mother’s early passing and was raised by Filamena and Angelo Capobianco. She enjoyed cooking, loved going to casinos, dancing and her biggest joy was spending time with her girls and grandchildren. Many friends and relatives would come to get Aunt Lena’s meatballs, pot roast and pasta. She also enjoyed spending time with her family at holiday gatherings at the family restaurant Ange & Mins. With her fun and loving personality and heart of gold, she was loved by all who met her and made everyone feel special. Her smile and ability to make others laugh will truly be missed by her family and friends.
She is survived by her children, MaryAnn Allocco (fiancé Anthony), Christine Mazzarisi (husband Ernie) and Michele Manfredi (husband Mark), four grandchildren, Alexandra, Michael, Mark and Matthew and many nieces and nephews, her siblings Millie Capobianco and Anne Marie and Tony Vaz and sister-in-law Barbara Allocco and Claire Capobianco and brother-in-law Donald Dinella. She was predeceased by her husband Michael Allocco, parents Agostina and Michael Capobianco, her Aunt Filamena and Uncle Angelo Capobianco, her sisters Margie, Patty and Angie and brothers Vito, Sonny, Joe and Butchie, sister-in-laws Elaine and Peggy and many wonderful friends.
