Lucy was born in Newark, NJ and resided in Fanwood and Mountainside before moving to Brick 34 years ago.  She was a mother figure to many, and a homemaker who devoted her life to caring about her large circle of family and friends.  She loved nothing more than a table full of loved ones gathering to share a meal she cooked for them.


She is survived by her beloved grandchildren Andrea, Laura, Mark and Matthew; her nine cherished great-grandchildren; her four precious great-great-grandchildren; her loving sister Theresa Badala, and her loving brothers Tom, Frank, Anthony and Sam Criscitiello.
