Anne Manziano, 90, of Monroe Township, passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 14, 2019 at her home.
Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Anne came to the United States in 1940, residing first in Jersey City, then Old Bridge and South River before settling in Monroe Twp. 3 years ago. Anne and her late brother Samuel were Holocaust survivors, losing many members of their family. After marrying, Anne was a homemaker raising her two sons. For several years after they were grown, she worked part time as a lunch aide at Miller School in Old Bridge and for NatPak of East Brunswick. She was an avid shopper and she enjoyed her trips to Atlantic City with her late husband. Most of all, Anne loved spending time with her family and dear friends.
Predeceased by her brother Samuel Buchsbaum, her son Lawrence in 2018 and, her husband of 69 years, Clarence in January 2019, she is survived by her son, John of Monroe Twp.; her daughter-in-law Suzanne of Hillsborough; her grandchildren Lisa Venis and Nicole Vorst, and; her great-grandchildren Carson and Grace Venis.
