Joyce Ann Zaccone, of Wanaque, passed away peacefully Monday, May 3, 2021, surrounded by her loving family. She was 72 years old.

Born and raised in Belleville, she lived in Bloomfield for almost 30 years before moving to Wayne in 2004 and Wanaque just 3 years ago.

Joyce was the devoted daughter of Johanna (nee Parise) and the late John Zaccone, beloved mother of Stacey Lukowiak and the late Tonia Ann Hodgins, loving sister of Barbara Zaccone and her husband Kevin Frederick, and the late James John Zaccone, and cherished grandmother of Jacob Lukowiak, David Hodgins, and Julia Lukowiak.

After the birth of her two beautiful daughters, Joyce reentered the workforce, began selling Tupperware, and found herself guiding and supporting others as they entered the sales force. In addition to her natural ability to lead, Joyce discovered she had a talent for accounting and finance. In each new job she accepted through the years, she rose in the ranks and from small beginnings, Joyce’s career culminated in the position of Chief Financial Officer for e.comm Technologies in East Hanover, New Jersey.

A current member of Saint Mary’s Church in Pompton Lakes and a true example of strong faith in action, Joyce was always an involved parishioner. She served as a Eucharistic Minister and helped in any activity that served the church community. Joyce took on the role of organizer and facilitator of the Women’s Cornerstone Program at our Lady of Consolation in Wayne.

While her career provided financial remuneration, there was never a question that it was faith and family that were Joyce’s absolute priorities. She was a devoted daughter, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt and friend. In her later years, she was the devoted caregiver for her mother Johanna. Her commitment and generosity to each member of her immediate and extended family was unwavering.

High on Joyce’s priority list – and perhaps her favorite role – was Super Fan Gram for each of her three grandchildren for all of the sports in which they participated. There was no missing Joyce at the games in Wayne, Pompton Lakes, or Park Ridge, cheering for Jacob, David, and Julia. And, in her “spare time,” Joyce loved participating in the Wanaque Reserve Bowling League and also served as building captain at the Reserve.

Visitation will be held at the LaMonica Memorial Home, 145 E. Mt. Pleasant Avenue in Livingston, on Thursday, May 6, 2021 from 5-8 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Friday, May 7, 2021 at St. Mary’s Church in Pompton Lakes at 12 noon, followed by the Interment in Mount Olivet Cemetery in Bloomfield.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Tisch MS Research Center of New York (forms will be provided at the funeral home) or online at www.tischms.org

When I asked Joyce why so accepted being building captain her response was "I have nothing else to do"

I met Joyce at Our Lady of Consolation in Wayne at the Women's Retreat. I found her to be funny, caring, loving, and an all round great person. She planned our Retreat at San Alfonso and we had so much fun on those retreats. I will miss her smile, her caring and her friendship. Rest in Peace my friend. I will remember you always.
