Eugenia Morse, 95, passed away peacefully at home on March 7, 2021.
She was born in Naples, Italy and has been a resident of Little Falls since she arrived in the U.S. in 1955. Eugenia was predeceased by her beloved husband, Anthony, her parents Giovanni & Francesca Rizzo, her brother Gerardo Rizzo and sister Tina Pasqualini. She is the cherished mother of Ralph, Aurora Iannelli and her husband James. She is also survived by her dear cousins and many wonderful nieces, nephews, godchildren and friends whom she loved greatly and by her devoted caregiver Robin Kearsley and Lynn Carlson who lovingly cared for her.
Eugenia had a witty sense of humor and enjoyed telling jokes and making her family laugh. She loved music, dancing and singing; especially songs from her beloved Napoli. Some of her favorite times were spent visiting with family and enjoying a cup or two of espresso. She spent many beautiful days on her sunporch reading and waving to neighbors passing by.
Eugenia was a parishioner of Our Lady of the Holy Angels church where she was a member of the adult choir and volunteered to support many church activities. She was a devoted servant of the Lord whom she loved faithfully throughout her life.
A Funeral Mass will be held on Wednesday, March 10 at 9:30 AM at Our Lady of the Holy Angels Church, 465 Main Street, Little Falls. Please meet directly at church. Masks will be required. Interment to follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Union Boulevard, Totowa.
