Teresa Ghezzi of Pompano Beach, Florida (formerly of Long Island) passed away on April 27, 2021 at the age of 93.

Terry was born in Brooklyn, NY on May 22, 1927 to Vito Ancona and Mary Farrugia. Terry married the love of her life, Lido Ghezzi, in 1947. Their beloved union of 71 years ended with Lido’s death in 2018.

Terry was a devout Catholic and was commissioned as a Eucharist Minister for the Church of the Good Shepherd in Holbrook, NY. She served the Church in that capacity for 20 years until she and Lido moved to Pompano Beach, FL in 2015. Terry was a devoted wife, loving mother, and an accomplished organist.

Her Italian cooking, sense of humor and painting and crochet talents will be greatly missed. Terry is survived by her son Lee Ghezzi of Pompano Beach; daughter JoAnne Vlaun of Katy, TX; grandchildren Lorraine Vlaun and Carolyn Miller (Katy, TX); Jason Ghezzi (Atlanta, GA), Capt. Anthony Ghezzi (US Army) and Roxanne Ghezzi (Orlando); great-granddaughters Andriana Miller and Celia Ghezzi and many wonderful friends.

An internment service at the South Florida National Cemetery will be conducted at a later date.

Our deepest condolences. What I remember clearly was the incredible bond between Terry and Lido. He always tending to her and she always by his side.... and the baking! She made wonderful treats. May she be resting in peace right next to Lido.
Warm Regards, Monica & Ken

I am so sorry for your loss. May her memories bring your comfort.

My favorite memory was when I got to do Terry's hair and she would bring her little curlers with her! :) It was fun to get to do an old fashioned "shampoo and set"!
