Obituary for Ann Chicolo

Ann Chicolo was born to the late Marco Picariello and Clara DeTorrebruno, a stonemason and a homemaker, in Bronx, NY on August 26, 1932.
Ann started her career at Blue Cross where she met and married her late husband, George Chicolo, Sr. in 1955. They were blessed with a loving family as well as a large extended family.

Ann lived a fulfilling life as a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, wife, and friend. She loved reading, shopping, Atlantic City excursions, animals, Sunday family dinners and every Christmas Eve dinner.

Ann retired from the Department of Education as an Administrative Assistant for the Drug Abuse Program on Staten Island. She raised three beautiful children with patience, discipline and humility. She was a kind, outspoken, generous and loving woman, who stressed that family was of utmost importance. Ann made such an impact on everyone she encountered. She was adventurous and loved sports. She was a diehard NY Yankees and NY Giants fan, although most recently, she loved the Golden State Warriors.

Those in Ann’s life knew Ann was a great listener who provided insight and truth without judgment. You usually walked away from a conversation feeling uplifted and lighter. Ann thrived in discussing politics and challenged her family and friends with her 88 years of knowledge.

Besides her loving family, Ann was encircled by her group of friends for over 65 years lovingly known as “The Crowd”, who helped to make her the beautiful, graceful and vivacious person that she was.

Ann is survived by her sister, Lucy Ann Carbone, daughter, Eleanor Chicolo; her daughter Mary Ellen Sach and her son-in-law, Robert Sach; her son, George Chicolo, Jr. and daughter-in-law Diana; her grandchildren George Chicolo III and his wife Christine; her granddaughter, Lauren Chicolo and her boyfriend Danny Lanigan; her grandson, Brandon Sach and girlfriend Courtney Wiewiorski; her granddaughter Kacey Sach and boyfriend Max Goldblum. She has two sweet great-grandchildren, Evelyn Sue Chicolo, and Julianne Sofia Chicolo. A third great-grandchild is on the way. Ann is survived by her many special and loving nieces and nephews, as well as her soul-mate Shih Tsu, Lolo.

Ann is preceded in death by her husband, George Chicolo Sr., brothers, Marco Picariello, and Anthony Picariello and her parents. Her legacy and beautiful smile will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone she met.
