Obituary of Vera Abruzzi

North Brunswick, NJ

Vera (Biro) Abruzzi crossed over to her Father in Heaven on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, at the age of 104 years and 10 months surrounded by her loving family at her home in North Brunswick.

She was born in New Brunswick to the late John and Mary (Toth) Biro and was raised in Edison. She settled in North Brunswick 73 years ago. She was beloved by all those who met her, from the children of Livingston Park School in North Brunswick where she worked as a lunch aide for 22 years before retiring in 1991, to the doctors and nurses who treated her. They called her a “rock star”, and she was.

Vera was a natural gardener, which was inherited from her mother. She was able to grow flowers from stems. In the image of herself she was the creator of a very successful, creative, beautiful and loving family.

She is reunited with her husband of 59 years Nicholas Michael Abruzziwho died in 2004; her daughter Marie Dorothy Kadi who died in 2020; and three brothers and four sisters. Surviving are her son Michael V. Abruzzi of Kendall Park; her son-in-law Ronald L. Kadi of Franklin Park; four grandchildren – Gary Kadi and his wife Judith of New York City, Barbara Rommel and her husband Mark of White Plains, New York, Michale V. Abruzzi, Jr. and his wife Carol of Yardley, Pennsylvania and David Abruzzi and his wife Jen of Skillman; and nine great grandchildren.
