Gertrude Rispoli

d. June 26, 2019

Gertrude Rispoli (nee Vitale), 97 of Bloomfield passed away on June 26, 2019.

Born in Newark, Gertrude moved with her family to Franklin Lakes, and became some of the town's first residents. She always carried with her fond memories of the area and their beautiful home there, especially the nice days spent outside among their strawberry trees. Years later, Gertrude moved back to Newark, and worked for Prudential Insurance Co. in Newark, later in New Providence, as a secretary in the printing department, retiring many years ago. A huge fan of John Wayne, Gertrude very much enjoyed watching western films with her children, and she passed on her love for those movies to them.

The daughter of the late Vincenzio and Amelia (nee Russo) Vitale, Gertrude was the beloved wife of the late Anthony Rispoli. She was the loving mother of Amelia "Amy" Rispoli and Anthony Rispoli.

Funeral services are private, in the care of the Galante Funeral Home, 54 Roseland Ave. Caldwell.
