Joanne Catherine Uzzi

Naples, FL

Joanne Catherine Uzzi, 66, of Naples, FL passed away very peacefully in her sleep on November 23, 2017.

Youngest daughter of Salvatore & Edna (Lane) Ardovino, Joanne was born and raised in Yonkers, NY where she attended Our Lady of the Rosary School & Commerce High School. She received her Bachelor's in Education from Mercy College prior to becoming a Registered Nurse through Cochran School of Nursing. Joanne's amazing ability to comfort and heal led to her career as a dedicated pediatric nurse at Westchester County Medical Center. A member of the Amackassin Club in Yonkers and World Tennis Club in Naples, she loved meeting new people and volunteering on various committees. Her passions included tennis, reading, slot machines, General Hospital, The Beach Boys and doting on her six grandchildren. If she was sitting, she was knitting.

Joanne met and married the love of her life, Christopher, in 1986 after a brief courtship. She was a proud military mom, supporting her son who served two tours in Iraq with the USMC as well as various veterans' charities. A loving wife, mother, sister, daughter, niece, cousin and friend, her smile lit up a room and she touched the hearts of everyone she met. She will be dearly missed. She is survived by her husband Christopher Uzzi, sister Carol Ardovino, children Marisa Uzzi, Joseph (Jennifer) Uzzi, Kristina (George) Hogan, Janine (Joseph) Palatucci and grandchildren Anthony, Kayla, Coleman, Isabella, Patrick & Logan.

Visitation will be held from 3:00 - 7:00 PM Thursday, November 30, 2017 at Hodges Funeral Home at Naples Memorial Gardens, 525-111th Ave N, Naples. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 10:00 AM Friday, December 1, 2017 at St. William Catholic Church, 601 Seagate Dr., Naples. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Veterans and Military Listening Post, 2340 Vanderbilt Rd #108, Naples, FL 34109.
