Arlene DeMatteo

May 9, 1941-November 17, 2019

Arlene DeMatteo, of Valley Cottage, NY -previously of South

Blooming Grove, entered into eternal rest on Sunday November 17,

2019 at Nyack Hospital. She was 78 years old.

The daughter of Pasquale and Giovannina Moscatiello, Arlene was

born and raised in Bronx, NY.

Arlene was truly a one of a kind woman who will be remembered

for her kind heart, trusted guidance, and unwavering support. She

loved her big downstairs kitchen table where everyone gathered-

family, friends, neighbors, and anyone that came upon her door. The

coffee was always hot, the laughs were always loud and the advice

was always flowing- wanted or not. A fond memory for many. She

treasured her friends “The Crowd” who she was fortunate enough to

share over 70 years of friendship with. She was our fighter and did

so until the end when she went home to be with her parents and

sisters Linda, Cynthia, Gloria and Janet. She will be missed


Arlene is survived by her devoted husband Joseph “Joey”

DeMatteo and would have been married for 60 years in June. Her
