Joanne Marie Inglese, 82, of Daytona Beach Shores, Florida, and previously a long time resident of Parsippany, New Jersey, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 2, 2020. Her death came following complications from emergency surgery.
Joanne was born on November 28, 1938 in Newark, New Jersey, to Mary and Joseph Cimorelli. As a child, her family moved several times as Joe took new job assignments with RCA Corporation. Eventually they settled in Morristown, New Jersey where Joanne met her future husband, Tom Inglese. She graduated from Gwynedd Mercy College and married Tom soon afterward. Joanne and Tom purchased a home in Parsippany, New Jersey, where they raised their three children and resided for over 35 years. Over those years, they built great lifelong friendships with their neighbors in the Fieldcrest community.
As their kids grew, Joanne rejoined the work force and worked many years as an Executive Assistant utilizing the same skills organizing professionals as she did organizing their home. She will be remembered as always having a smile, quick to laugh, and having a pleasant demeanor along with the occasional funny comment. She had the style and grace of an era gone by.
Upon Joanne and Tom’s move to Florida, they quickly took up cruising as a favorite pastime. It seemed they would be home only for a few days before Joanne was checking dates for their next trip. Joanne enjoyed their trips back to New Jersey to see family and friends and to Boca Raton to visit her brother’s family. She was an avid reader, gamer, and knitted for most of her life and shared many works of art with family and friends.
Joanne is survived by her loving husband of 61 years, Thomas Inglese, her devoted children, Ralph Inglese and his wife, Laurie, of Short Hills, New Jersey, Tom Inglese Jr. and his former wife Monique Marcoux Inglese of San Diego, California, and Joanne Inglese (Jr.) of Newton, New Jersey, her adored grandchildren, Katie Inglese, Jackie Romaine, Dan Inglese, Ben Inglese, Juliana Inglese, and Chris Inglese, and her brother, Michael Cimorelli and his wife Janet. Joanne was predeceased by her loving parents, Mary and Joseph Cimorelli of Convent Station, NJ.
A private family service was held for the immediate family. A memorial service will be planned for a later date. Joanne will be greatly missed by all her family and friends.
