Jean Cosentino ( nee Napoliello )106 passed away peacefully at Overlook Medical Center in Summit on June 1, 2021. Not many people ever earn the reputation of being called a "legend" but our grandmother undoubtedly deserved that title. She grew up an orphan and raised three siblings during the Great Depression, but she didn't let those struggles stop her. She went on to live an absolutely remarkable life and our entire family has her to thank for all of our success and happiness. 106 years later, our grandmother has left an incredible mark on this world. A mark that we and those who knew her will never forget. We will always love you Nanny. Say Hi to Pops in heaven for us.
