Angelina ‘Ann’ Musto, 93, passed away on Saturday, July 13, 2019 surrounded by her loving family.
Born on November 13, 1925, Angelina, or ‘Ann’ to many, grew to guide many lives through her work. Completing both her undergraduate and graduate studies at Seton Hall University, Ann knew how to run a tight ship, especially from her time as an executive secretary for the Cunard Line in New York City. Channeling these skills into teaching, Ann spent over 50 years as a pillar of the St. Ann’s community teaching Sunday school and as a teacher at St. Ann’s School in Hoboken with her loving and direct style of instruction. She was also a lifelong member of the St. Ann’s Guild.
Ann rejoins many of her beloved siblings in the hearts of her family including Celia Bright, Mary Ahern, Ralph Musto, Diana Jaccodine, Sebastian Musto, Theresa Shableski, Thomas Musto, Yolanda Musto, and Nancy Patti. Ann’s memory will be cherished by her sister, Loretta De Leonardis, as well as 18 nieces and nephews and 35 great-nieces and nephews, and her dear caregivers Bebee, Faziah, and Lilla.
Visitation for Ann will be on Tuesday, July 16, 2019 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM and Wednesday July 17, 2019 from 4:00 – 8:00 PM at Lawton-Turso Funeral Home in Hoboken (corner of Washington and Seventh Streets, parking on Seventh). A Funeral Mass will be offered on Thursday, July 18, 2019 at 10:00 AM in St. Ann Catholic Church of Hoboken with interment to follow at Madonna Mausoleum in Fort Lee.

No one ever gave more of themselves to St Ann’s Church than Ann Musto!… Rest in Peace Ann…
Angelina influenced and will be missed by countless students, who she helped shape their lives. I am glad to have known her, and been able to call her, Aunt Ann.. ..Love – Stella & Gordon
“Dear hearts and gentle people”…Miss Musto was small but mighty, firm but loving, with those simple words, she could restore order from chaos in her classroom. Thanks to her skilled instruction, I learned mathematics so very well…but more importantly, I learned the greatest treasure of all, the Catholic faith. She is the one who taught me the Angelus and the Regina Caeli in 4th grade. I remember her beautiful handwriting on the chalkboard, and copying it down in my notebook. She, along with the gentle Franciscan Sisters of Ringwood, passed along a slender silken thread….the true Catholic faith….in those decades in which it was and is most fragile and seemingly gone from the planet. Thank you God for sending her to us to light the darkness, bless her and rest her soul. May we all come to true faith in You, Lord, and live and love accordingly, as she did, so we might all meet again, forever with You. Amen.
I’ve known A n Musto since I was 5 years old and frequently visited with her up until the time of her death. She was very special in my life and taught me many many skills and deeds that I hold dear to this very day.
You will never be a more faithful servant of Jesus Christ.
RIP MJSS MUSTO
She was nothing short of an amazing and loving teacher and human being. Rest in peace. You’ve earned it many times over.
