Obituary for Theresa Abbate

Theresa Abbate (nee Marcozzi) Passed way on March 7, 2021 at the age of 96. Resident of Voorhees, NJ. Beloved wife of the late Anthony Abbate. Loving mother of Catherine Gillespie (Charles), Guy Abbate, and the late Joseph E. Abbate ( Survived by Patricia). Adoring grandmother of Charles, James, Anthony, Robert, Evelyn, Joseph and great grandmother of Alexander and Iris. Dear sister of Josephine Zerbo, Emedio Marcozzi and Anthony Marcozzi. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. Anyone who has met mom would agree that she was a saint. From being the eldest and caring for 4 siblings, to being a devoted wife and caring mother that was always there enduring many sleepless nights. She took care of neighbors in need and took on a job monitoring a school lunch room. She always had prepared food for anyone who stopped over, and everyone was welcome. She took great care of her elderly mother. All of this and much more without regrets, complaints, or any time to herself. She enjoyed a long life more worried about her children taking the time to care for her and has finally gone from saint to angel. Relatives and friends are invited to her viewing on Friday March 12, 2021 from 10-10:30 AM at St. Simon Stock Parish, 178 W White Horse Pike, Berlin, NJ 08009. Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 11 AM. Interment will be private at Calvary Cemetery, Cherry Hill, NJ. In Lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
