Theresa Del Giudice (Nee Polese)


Theresa Del Giudice (nee Polese), 91, formerly of Hoboken and Union City, passed away peacefully on July 18th.

She was the daughter of Luigi Polese and Mary Polese (nee Napolitano) and the youngest of six children.

Theresa had a strong devotion to Saint Ann and was a past member of the St. Ann’s Guild attending the novena, mass, and procession faithfully her whole life.

Theresa was happiest surrounded by family and friends.

She was a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend.

The way to Theresa’s heart was through her children.

She was loyal above all.  Theresa loved to cook, everyone wanted her meatball recipe, and she loved to sing along with the Italian classics, especially songs by Jimmy Roselli. She had a great laugh and a million-dollar smile.

Theresa was traditional but accepting, all at the same time. She demanded respect and was respectful. She was a strong woman and was the backbone of the family.  She will be greatly missed.
