She was the proprietor of Fred’s Salon in New Rochelle and halted her career in order to play the role she served best, devoted wife and mother. Ann Marie was the epitome of a matriarch. She was a caretaker whose love transcended generations as she tended to her grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and of course, her own immediate family. On August 18th 1978, she married her loving husband, Vincent Graziano. She would stand by his side through their relationship that began nearly 55 years ago as a true companion, partner and soulmate. Together, they enjoyed more recent years in Southwest Florida, where she was a well-loved fixture in the West Bay Club Community. Ann Marie enjoyed Florida, as well as travel to Europe with her husband and their friends. Her greatest joy, however, was her family. She lived for her children and grandchildren, seizing every moment and opportunity to be in their presence. Ann Marie was an exceptional cook and baker, well known for her anisette cookies and biscotti’s that were loved by all. Ann Marie is the cherished mother of Jennifer Graziano and Vincent Graziano and his wife Amy. She is the loving, adored and devoted “Mimzy” to Emma Elizabeth, Mia Florence and Vincent Thomas. She is the dear sister to JoAnn Williams, Michael Williams and sister in law of Angela Williams, Marie Graziano (Joseph, deceased), Dominick Graziano (Laurie) Mary Ellen Vassallo (Anthony) and John Graziano (Gina). She is also survived by her aunts, Gloria Prunesti and Yolanda Williams as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.
