Obituary

Concetta "Jenny" Vinella, 92, of Roselle Park, NJ, passed away on October 18, 2022 on her wedding anniversary at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ.

She was born on August 2, 1930 to Mary and John Grasso in Hammonton, NJ. She grew up in Hammonton where she met the love of her life Ernest. Jenny and Ernest married in 1958 and settled in Roselle Park where they went on to have three children together. Jenny was the exemplification of an Italian mother. She loved cooking family dinners and she always made Christmas Eve special with her wonderful dishes. Her specialty was her meatballs, sauce and braciole. Jenny had an incredible green thumb; she took great pleasure in taking care of her many house plants and vegetable plants. She also loved the holidays, she always looked forward to decorating inside and outside of her home. Above all else, Jenny loved and adored her family dearly, especially her grandchildren. Jenny's grandchildren were her world, and any of their events or sport games that she could attend she would be there to support them.

Jenny was a wonderfully loving wife, mother and grandmother and she will be forever deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

Jenny is survived by her son Ernest Vinella Jr. and his partner Susan McGraw; her daughter Robin Ponticello; her daughter Sandra Manee and her husband Arthur; her grandchildren Torre Ponticello and his fiancé Amanda Roefaro, Jamie Ponticello; Nicolas Manee; Antonia Manee and Samantha Manee; as well as many loved nephews and nieces.
