Anna Piccolo
July 16, 1930- February 5, 2018

Anna Piccolo of Middletown, NY died Monday, February 5th peacefully at home surrounded by her family.

Anna was born in Naples, Italy and raised by her parents Pasquale and Angela Romano Ciccarelli in Madonna Dell’Arco. As a young woman, she learned sewing and embroidery skills at the Convent. She immigrated to America in 1958 after marrying her childhood sweetheart Pietro Piccolo. She was a professional seamstress and retired from Calvert Coat Factory in Middletown. Her true life’s work was raising her family with her beloved husband. Anna taught herself English, how to manage a home, and was an exceptional self-taught cook. She enjoyed learning new skills such as crocheting. Most of all she loved spending time with her children, husband, and grandchildren. She was selflessly devoted to her family and served as example of the values of education, hard work, thrift, sharing, personal responsibility and citizenship.
Anna is survived by her loving husband Pietro Piccolo at home and four children: three daughters Anna Maria Piccolo and her husband William Lissak of East Greenbush, N.Y.; Rina Cleary and her husband Kevin of Milford, PA; Lisa Piccolo and her husband Paul A. Keskey from New Paltz, NY: and her son Alessandro Piccolo and his wife Sardana Belkin of Rumson, NJ.; Six grandchildren: Christina, James, Joseph, Jake, Sophia, Stella.
Her brother Giovanni Ciccarelli, sisters Carmella, Archetta, Rachelina Ciccerelli and several nieces and nephews in the United States and in Italy. She was predeceased by her brother Salvatore, Ciro Raffaele Ciccarelli and and her sister Elena Barone.
