Lucy Foti entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2022, surrounded by her family in her home in Bloomfield. Lucy was born and raised in Newark where she graduated from East Side High School. After marrying her high school sweetheart in 1961 and raising three children at her home in Bloomfield, Lucy worked for the Bloomfield Board of Education for twenty years.
Lucy was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She was a selfless woman who dedicated her life to her family. She will be best remembered for hosting a packed house on Sundays for pasta dinner. Nothing made her happier than serving everyone she loved her delicious sauce and meatballs.
Lucy is survived by her husband of 60 years, Gene, her three children, Gene, Lori, and Gary, eight grandchildren, Anthony, Gabriella, Sophia, Olivia, Nicholas, Michael, Emily, and John, daughters-in-law, Filomena and Sharon, as well as many nieces and nephews.
