Age 89, passed into the arms of Our Lord on Wednesday, October 23rd at St. Francis Hospital surrounded by her loving family.
Ann was born on June 28, 1924 to Sabina (Ottaviani) and Loreto Zappaterrine. She was affectionately known to her friends and family as "Mrs. Clean" and was admired for her immaculately clean house and her great cooking. Her greatest joy in life was her family especially her 3 grandchildren. She loved spending time at her daughter's home in Rehoboth Beach where she would sit on the porch and just "people watch" all day long.
In addition to her parents, Ann was predeceased by an infant son, Alfonso Jr. and her beloved brothers Benjamin, Joseph, and David who owned and operated Zappaterrini Bros. Bakery for 43 years and a loving sister, Yolanda Rossi of Jacksonville, FL.
She leaves behind to cherish her memory her loving husband of 65 years Alfonso, her 3 devoted daughters, Francine Filliben and her husband Ted, Deborah Nepa, and her husband Ernest, and Paula Capriglione. Also, surviving Ann are her 3 grandchildren, Jayne Capriglione and her fiancé Stephen Hughes, Jenna N. Nepa, and Ernest Nepa Jr., and many nieces, nephews, and friends all who loved her very much. Also missing her would be her granddogs, Pugslee, Samuel, and Jackson, and her grandcat, Bedelia.
A special thanks to St. Francis Hospital especially the cardiac ICU nurses and also to compassionate care hospice for all the excellent care they provided to Ann during her hospitalization.
