Anna Bartolotta, a long-time resident of Lindenhurst, died on Thursday, January 5, 2012.
Ann, known as "Lovey" to all who love her, touched the lives of many people with her loving smile. She listened and was always there for you. Unintentionally, she did and said zany things that made you laugh. Her animals and her family made her the most happy. Ann especially enjoyed going out on the boat, taking long rides in the car, word-find puzzles and QVC.
There isn't a more loving, kind-hearted and caring person. We were blessed.
From all of us, her family - "We love you, and miss you". Her presence in our life is a gift, and we will always be thankful for it.
Anna is survived by her husband, Calogero (Carl); and her children - Carl and and his wife, Sue; Barbara Colasanto and her husband, Jack; Theresa Bartolotta and her beloved, Danny Restivo; and Jimmy and his wife, Maureen. She was a beloved Nanny to Carl Bartolotta, III; Roxanne Bartolotta, Alex Colasanto, Corrine Colasanto, Jimmy Bartolotta, Jr., and Brianna Bartolotta. Great Grandmother to Haily and Jamylai. Anna is predeceased by her brother, Henry Stellwagen, and her parents, Henry and Anna Stellwagen.
