The Family of Lucy Bianca Vona.

Postby matusekm_25 » 21 Sep 2010, 21:37

I am researching my deceased paternal grandmother, whom I never knew. Her name is Lucy Bianca Vona, born 26 JAN 1923 in South Amboy, Middlesex, NJ. She passed 26 APR 1970, if you have any information that is related to this please contact me. I believe her parents name's are Armenio Vona (Father) and Francis Sciallo (Mother); I have birth certificates for the latter, but not the former. They immigrated from Italy, in and around the town of Durrazzano. Lucy was married to Michael Peter Matusek 03 JUL 1949 in NJ. He is my paternal grandfather who was born 21 JUL 1921 in Staford Springs, Connecticut. He past away in 19 NOV 2002 in Winter Park, FL. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

MATUSEK, LUCY 26 Jan 1923 Apr 1970 47 (not specified) (none specified) New Jersey SS# 147-16-1548

from the social security index at rootsweb.com

getting a copy of her application for her social security card costs $27, but her parents' names should be on that.

Hi,
Aunt Lucy/Lucia was my father's (John) sister. We lived on different streets but our backyards were adjacent to eachother; we lived on Catherine and Aunt Lucia and Mike Matusek lived on Leffert St in South Amboy, so we were neighbors. I don't remember her well however as she died when I was four years old. Dad never spoke much of how or why she passed

Unfortunately the family was not very close, much unlike what you hear of immigrant families. I can fill you in a little on the family dynamics as Dad (and you grandmother Lucy) were among 14 brothers of sisters. Arminio Vona, your great grandfather, lived to 100 and I attended his birthday when I was around 12 in 1978 (+/-) (exact year eludes me). I'd be happy to put you in touch with my father who is 84 and still lives next door to where aunt Lucy lived; he'd love to tell you about the family. Another person to look up is Father Michael Vona who is pastor of a church near Belmar, NJ. Michael is the youngest of the family and was Dad's and Aunt lucy's little brother.

Thank you all so very much for your information.

@johnnyvona

I never thought that anyone from extended family would come across this page. You don't know how surprised I am to see a response of such detail. I would love to get in touch with my grandmother's siblings. If you were four when she passed away that would make you about 45 years old. Could you possibly send me any contact information? I'd like to email, write, or call to get in touch with ya'll. This is truly exciting! Thank you again for contacting me!!
Looking for surnames: Matusek, Vona, Ericksson (I believe), Gazora. If you have any information please contact me! Thank you!

Looking for grandmother's relatives. Grandma was Rosina Vona, her father was Rosario Vona born 04/12/1878 supposedly in Roccabernarda, Italy and mother Maria Donella ( not sure if the spelling is correct. Hopefully someone will connect..

Hi,

My name is Karen Vona and I am John's older sister, he replied to your note inquiring about our aunt Lucy. I never really got to know Aunt Lucy well, there was a great deal of dissention within the family at that time. As my brother related to you there were 14 siblings, My father John was one of the youngest, I know that my aunt Lucy died when I was about 14 or so, I was born in 1953, I am guessing she died in 1967 or 1968 I can't remember. I was told her kidneys failed and I was not allowed at the wake or funeral, however when became an adult I found out Aunt Lucy commited sucicide. Depression is rampant within this family, Uncle Pat( one of Dad'd older brothers) had two children, both committed sucicide as adults. My father has had terrible bouts of depression, and has never sought help because "only crazy people" do that, It is so unfortunate, I have seen him suffer over the years. Thank goodness my mother, who is Irish and a bit hyper lifts him through the rough times. I hope this helps!

Karen

Hi ,

Im trying to get more info on my grandfather peter vona. The previous posts confirmed his family most lived in south amboy. For some reason my grandfather changed his last name to Warn.
He committed suicide in 1958. He was a taxi driver in new brunswick married to grace manziano. They had two sons richard and peter. Richard was my father..he also suffered from depression as do i.
Just want to know what siblings of my grandfather were still alive and where they are.
Donna

The Scialli family is from Durazzano (Province of Benevento) although Hicksville, Long Island and environs has many more families from Durazzano than Durazzano by now. Scialli Plumbing & Heating owner, Vincent Scialli <http://scialli.com/aboutus.asp> is a great contact for your extended family.
