Ruth Abbagliato, known to all as Mema, 96, of Beacon passed away peacefully at Fishkill Center for Rehabilitation & Nursing Home surrounded by her loving family.

Her journey began in New York City on November, 1923 when she was born to her parents Louise and Frank Maugeri.

She married the love of her life Louis Abbagliato on February 10, 1946.

She retired as an accounts payable clerk from Reader’s Digest in Pleasantville. But her real passion was to be around her family and playing with her great grandkids.
She will be remembered for her beautiful smile and joyful spirit.

Ruth was a devoted and loving mother to her four sons, Louis and Nettie Abbagliato, Ronald and companion Doris, Dennis Abbagliato, Judy Abbagliato and her late son Richard’s wife Lori Shields.

She is also survived by her 7 great grandchildren.

Dear cousins, I was sad to hear from my sister Anne Tufts that Ruthie passed away but grateful that she died peacefully. I have so many fond memories of her visiting us in Brewster and all of the fun times we had there. She was always so happy & had a beautiful smile which she shared with all of us for an amazing 96 years. She will be reunited with her beloved Louie again as well as Richard, other cousins like my parents, Ed & Mary Nelpi, Alice Ruchinskas, & so many others. She will surely have a special place in heaven.
May your happy memories of her wonderful life help to comfort you. You are in my prayers during this sad & difficult time. God bless you.
My love & sincere sympathy,
Christina Nelpi Costa
