As we were new to Ohio, Ann started out as our friendly neighbor, quickly turning into our dear friend and very soon after became “Mama Ann” my “adoptive” mother. The bright light that beamed from within her was evident to everyone who knew her. The warm smile, the sweet laugh, her soft comforting words, her love of everything Englebert, and her absolute devotion to her family made her such a joy to spend your days with! She could shop with the best of them and oh what a little Barbie doll she was! She never appeared her age! Others would marvel when they would find out how old she was. She was a true stylish beauty without even trying. She had so much love to give and give she did! I felt truly warm in her embrace, and she always made me feel that right there as “one of the family” was where I belonged! I will miss her immeasurably, but the tattoo she has placed in my heart will remain right there. I know you are up in heaven teaching a choir of angels the chorus to “after the loving” with a huge smile. And Mama Ann, after YOUR loving we all are STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU ❤️.

I was fortunate to meet Mrs. Cusella in 1973. She was a sweet, warm, loving person to me and everyone she met. My memories of her were that she was always smiling, humming, laughing and taking care of everyone around her. Her faith and family were number one in her heart.
I know she will be missed by all who loved her. My thoughts are with her family and friends.

I truly loved her. She was gifted in grace and full of love.

I’m always amazed at God’s grace in my life, He’s given me such beautiful gifts; they are almost always...people.
And she was one true gift...❤️

If you’ve been hugged by her, you know. You know there’s been a transfer. A transfer of honest love; a gift she freely gave. And you never walked away from those arms without a kiss too.

Thank you for being an expression of love in my life. XO I’ll always love you.

I had the pleasure of knowing Ann for over 30 years as the mother of my dear friend Mary. I was always greeted with a huge smile, those sparkling eyes and bubbly personality! She was a spirited woman who loved her family deeply and loved those of us who were lucky enough to be her daughter’s friends.

When my mother passed away, I asked Ann if she could be my surrogate mother - I couldn’t think of anyone better! It was always comforting to see her in this role I gave her.

We will miss you Ann! I can just picture you now dancing up a storm with your husband and Annie, humming sweetly as you move around:).

Love, Luanne

My fondest memory of Aunt Chick is from one of our Ciarlo-Bavaro Reunion Picnics at Elma Meadows in Elma, NY. Aunt Chick had a sweet conversation with my daughter Janet (8 or 9 years old) and myself. She told us how she got her nickname (which I knew). Being my youngest child, I often called Janet “my baby”; now she understood a part of Family Love. God Bless you Aunt Chick. Love from Joanie, Jim and Family

She raised a wonderful daughter. My mom passed away one month ago and its still hard to believe it.
