Anne Pasquale

Obituary of Anne G Pasquale

Anne was born in Yonkers in 1930 to Susan (Dzubak) and Leo Grenyo, not long after they emigrated from what was then Czechoslovakia. She attended Yonkers public schools and graduated from Commerce High School in 1948. Before beginning her career as a legal secretary with the Yonkers law of Dulman and Geller, she worked in the advertising department of Yonkers' daily newspaper, the Herald Statesman. It was there that she met Nicholas Pasquale, who one day approached her desk and asked if he could give her a kiss. As she refused his proposition with rightful indignation, he opened his hand to reveal two Hershey kisses, shrugged, and announced that now he'd have to eat them both himself. They were married at Mount Carmel church in Yonkers in 1953. Nick and Anne had three children, Vinny, known as Jimmy, Terry, and Nick, Jr. They raised their children in Yonkers and were involved in the community. Anne later worked as a legal secretary in the Yonkers office of the Westchester County District Attorney and then for New York State Supreme Court Justices James Cowhey and Aldo Nastasi. She will be remembered for her devotion to her husband's care during his long illness and later, upon her retirement, to her granddaughter, Catherine. Anne remained active in the community with the Yonkers Catholic Widows and Widowers Group and the Westchester Community Partners Reading Program in the Yonkers Public Schools. She was predeceased by her husband Nick, her sister Mary Zumpano of Yonkers and brothers Peter Grenyo of Yonkers and George Grenyo of Manhattan. Anne is survived by her sons Vincent of Valhalla, and Nicholas of Somers and his wife Leslie Davidson, her daughter Terry of Yonkers and her husband Tom McSpedon, her granddaughter Catherine and daughter-in-law Rose Pasquale, both of White Plains. She will be missed by her three step-granddaughters, Allison McSpedon, Kristin MCSpedon and Suzanne Scibor and two great-granddaughters, Madeline McSpedon and Vivian Lockovich. Anne will be fondly remembered by her eighteen nieces and nephews, as well as her devoted long-time caregivers, Diane King and Shatora Johnson. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to either the Family Service Society of Yonkers, 30 South Broadway, 5th Floor, Yonkers, New York 10701 or Cabrini of Westchester 115 Broadway, Dobbs Ferry, NY 10522-2834. Both organizations have been very supportive throughout Anne's infirmity.
