Carmela R. D’Agosto, known affectionately as “Millie” to her family and friends, passed away peacefully at home on June 27, 2023, just a few months shy of her 99th birthday.

Born in Jersey City on October 30, 1924, she was a loving daughter to Louis and Silvia Colicchio. She spent 34 years in Verona before making her home in Brick Township, New Jersey, for the past 31 years.

Carmela was the beloved wife of the late Anthony J. D’Agosto. She was the devoted and loving mother to Carmel Rutman and late husband Lenny, Anthony D’Agosto and his companion Lisa Zeller, and Louis D’Agosto and his wife Susanne. Her legacy continues in her adoring grandchildren Tyler Rutman, Michele Schick, Anthony, Nicholas, Louis and wife Dina, Matthew, Daniel and Christina D’Agosto, J.R. Zeller, and great-grandchildren Giannah Kentsler and Brianna Schick.

Carmela enjoyed her trips to Atlantic City, Bingo and her weekly hair appointments. She will always be remembered for her famous cookies that were a staple at every event.

Visiting will be held on Thursday, June 29, 2023, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Prout Funeral Home, 370 Bloomfield Avenue, Verona. A funeral mass will be offered on Friday, June 30, 2023, at 10 a.m. in Our Lady of the Lake Church, followed by interment at Holy Cross Cemetery in North Arlington, New Jersey.

In honor of Carmela’s life, you may leave memories and upload photos to her memorial page, celebrating a life lived with love, generosity, and unwavering support for her family. May the memories of Carmela’s compassionate spirit remain in our hearts forever.

In lieu of flowers, donations made to the American Heart Association in Carmela’s name would be greatly appreciated.
