GARGIULO, EUGENIA

Funeral services have been held for Eugenia Gargiulo, 81, of North Bergen, formerly of Englewood. She passed away June 7. Eugenia was the spouse of her high school sweetheart Frank Gargiulo for 58 years, a love story that will last forever. Eugenia was no stranger to a house full of kids, having four of her own. She was a second mother to everyone and always welcomed all into her home. She was an expert shopper, had a knack for decorating, was a frequent Atlantic City visitor, and avid card player with her girlfriends. She would start shopping for Christmas gifts as early as March, with piles up to the ceiling for each family member. Eugenia loved Sunday dinners with her family and her family loved her cooking and baking – especially that chocolate cake! Although she loved those dinners, she was always ready to eat out at her favorite diner with anyone who would come. She was best dressed in high school, a title she carried proudly in matching sets, shoes, and socks for her entire life. Devoted mother of Frank Gargiulo and his wife Shawna, Vincent Gargiulo and his wife Talin, Eugenia Ramos and her husband Bob, and Natalie Fernandez and her husband Mario. One of a kind Nanny to Vincent and his wife Jaclyn, Gabrielle and her husband Nick, Grace, Frankie, Andrew, Ky’Ann, Gianna, Rocco, Rachel, Jenna, Livia, Isabella, Mia, and Mario. She was the sister of deceased Dennis DeMartino. Admired aunt to so many nieces and nephews. Loved so much by many cousins. Services arranged by the Vainieri Funeral Home, North Bergen.
