Obituary of Antoinette Cantalupo
DELMAR - Antoinette (Anne) Cantalupo (Fariello), age 78, died after a courageous battle with a long illness on April 6, 2019. She died peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones and listening to her favorite music.
Anne was born on March 10, 1941 in the Bronx, NY to the late Guiseppe and Angelina (Campanelli) Fariello. She grew up in a loving home alongside several brothers and sisters; the late Irene Justi, Frank Fariello, Rose Miano and Thomas Fariello, in addition to her two surviving sisters, Marie Balsamello and Theresa and James Miner.
Anne was married to the late Louis J. Cantalupo for 22 years before his death in 1983. They shared two children: Joseph and his wife Janet, and Janine Cantalupo, and five beautiful grandchildren: Leanne, Holly, Sydney, Calli and Trooper, who lit up her life and heart.
In addition to the above, Anne is survived by many nieces, nephews, godchildren, cousins, neighbors and lifelong friends. She always said the people you share your journey with are what matters, surround yourself with those that make you happy.
Anne loved to read, watch her shows and movies, listen and dance to music, sit on the beach, enjoy a good cup of coffee, indulge in a hot fudge sundae and laugh, boy did she love to laugh. Do any of the above to honor her memory.

A funeral mass will be celebrated at 9:30 am Wednesday April 10 at St. Thomas the Apostle Church, 35 Adams Pl., Delmar, with burial to follow at 1 pm at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Washingtonville, NY alongside her husband, Lou.
