Phyllis Moretta Obituary

Phyllis Moretta of Goshen, New York formerly of Warwick, New York and East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 3, 2023, with her loving family by her side. She was 99 years old.

Born in Paterson, New Jersey on July 18, 1924, she was a daughter of the late Tommaso and Anna Giaquinto.  Phyllis was married to her late husband, Andrew for 53 years.

Phyllis was a retired medical secretary in Saddle Brook, New Jersey where she raised three wonderful children; Gary, Janis, & Teresa.  She loved being involved in their school activities such as PTA, Brownies, and class trips. 

Phyllis loved her Italian Heritage.  She enjoyed cooking for her family and teaching her children about her Italian customs.  She loved to sing and dance, entertain and cook for the Giaquinto family gatherings.  She was an exceptional seamstress that sewed many prom dresses and bridal wear.  She also loved cross-stitching and crocheting.

She was a member of St. Stephen’s Church in Warwick.  Phyllis lived in Warwick for a short period of time and was then moved to Valley View where she remained until her death.  Her sense of humor and liveliness were always with her wherever she was, even with her declining health.  Her family will miss her dearly and will continue her Italian legacy and love.
