Anita Sibello, age 83 and formerly of Lake Ariel, passed away peacefully Friday, March 8, at Allied Hospice in Scranton. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 56 years, Robert Sibello, Sr. on August 12, 2010.
Born on January 29, 1936 and a Newark, New Jersey native, Anita was the daughter of the late Anna and Agostino Torrioni. Raised with her sister, Agatha Scavone of Manchester, NJ and brother, Anthony Torrioni of West Caldwell, NJ, she was a long time resident of Upper Montclair, NJ.
For many years, Anita could be found behind the deli counter at the Lakeville Market helping to prepare the many specialties that the market was famous for serving.
Anita, being a graduate of Arts High in Newark NJ, was a wonderfully gifted artist. On any given day, you could find her seated at her kitchen table quietly and skillfully painting. Being an avid reader, she passed the hours away reading crime and mystery thrillers.
Not many had as green a thumb as Anita. She made the world a bit more beautiful with her blooming trees, shrubs, and flowers. She was a wonderful friend to many but above all, a loving wife and mother who will be remembered and missed by her adoring family.
Surviving is her daughter, Lisa Noto and husband Michael, Sr. of Waverly; her daughter-in-law, Sandra Sibello of Lake Ariel; her grandchildren, Robert James Sibello, of Lake Ariel, Anne Marie Sibello of Philadelphia, Michael Noto Jr. and Andrew Noto, both of Waverly.
She was also preceded in death by her son, Robert Sibello Jr.; and her daughter, Laurie Ann Sibello.
Blessing services by Rev. John Lapera are scheduled for Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at Immaculate Conception Catholic Cemetery, Montclair, NJ, with burial to follow.
Arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton.
