Lanzone, Sister Antonia, M.S.C. DOBBS FERRY Sister Antonia Lanzone, M.S.C. (Elizabeth) died on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at the St. Cabrini Nursing Home located in Dobbs Ferry. Sister Antonia was the daughter of the late Vincenzo Lanzone and Lucia Ferrara Lanzone. She was born in Mechanicville on July 24, 1926 and graduated from Mechanicville High School. Shortly thereafter, she entered the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on September 8, 1947. This began a life of service and devotion to our Lord that spanned 66-plus years. Her time in the convent sent her to many locations including Australia, Italy, Canada, Chicago, and New Jersey. Later, though restricted by failing health, she was able to come back to Mechanicville to visit her family. For many years Aunt Lil's fried dough "bellybusters" were the hit of the Lanzone family yearly reunion. In addition to her parents, Sister Antonia was predeceased by her brothers, Joe Lanzone and Anthony Lanzone. She was also predeceased by her sisters, Rose DeLucia, Vincenzina Zurlo, Carmella Mick, Adrianna Herrington, Yolanda Santagato, and Mafalda Borden. She is survived by sisters, Olympia D'Amico, Mary Richards, and Lucia (Anthony) Petta. In addition, she leaves many nieces and nephews. Services will be private for the family and held at the Cabrini Nursing Home. For those wishing to express a remembrance of Sister Antonia, donations may be made to the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Donations should be sent to St. Cabrini Nursing Home, 115 Broadway, Dobbs Ferry, NY 10522. Local arrangements by the DeVito-Salvadore Funeral Home, Mechanicville.
