With fond remembrance of the Claire A. Tomasso (nee Hoehn), 84, we are saddened to announce her passing on Thursday, December 28, 2023. Born in Elizabeth, NJ to the late John and Marie Hoehn, Claire embodied a life rich with joy, warmth, and a radiant spirit. A cherished resident of Roselle, NJ since 1963, she delighted in life's simple pleasures - frequenting Atlantic City, reveling in the camaraderie of bingo and card games, and engaging in the intellectual pursuit of crossword puzzles.
Claire's heart overflowed with love, particularly in the embrace of her family and the cherished moments shared with her grandchildren. She reunites with her beloved late husband, Edward F. Tomasso, leaving behind an enduring legacy of love and treasured memories.
Claire is survived by her daughter Tracy Orlando and her husband Richard, their children Christopher and wife Anna, Nicholas, Michael and Adrianna; and son Edward Tomasso and his children with Arie Tomasso, Edward, Haley and Dominic. Each grandchild contributed to the vibrant tapestry of her life.
Friends and family are cordially invited to celebrate Claire's life during the visitation commencing at 9:00AM on Tuesday, January 2, 2024, at the Gray Memorial Funeral Home, 12 Springfield Avenue, Cranford, NJ. A heartfelt prayer service, brimming with memories and reflections, will follow at 11:00AM. Claire's final resting place will be in the serene Fairview Cemetery, Westfield, NJ.
May her gentle soul find eternal peace, and may her memory, painted with vibrant hues of love and joy, bring solace and comfort to those who were touched by her presence.
