Ann Marie Panzarelli, 51, of Keyport, New Jersey, passed away on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, New Jersey. She was born Ann Marie Rinaldi on February 5, 1970 in Jersey City, New Jersey, where she spent the earlier part of her childhood. In 1977, she and her family moved to Bayonne, New Jersey, where she graduated from Holy Family Academy. In 1993, Ann Marie and her husband, Russell, settled in Keyport, New Jersey to raise their family. Ann Marie worked as a bus driver for Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District. She was also a long-time volunteer for the Keyport Indians, Cub Scout Pack 364, and Boy Scout Troop 364. In addition, Ann Marie was a member of the Keyport Board of Education for 10 years and previously held the positions of President and Vice President for multiple terms.
Ann Marie was a loving woman who would truly do anything to she could for her family, friends, or anyone in need. Somehow, Ann Marie was always prepared to whip up a delicious cosmopolitan or martini at a moments notice and you could always count on her to provide you with band-aid and/or some neosporin for any unexpected cuts, bumps, or bruises. Ann Marie never came across a pool she didn't love; she loved spending time in swimming pools, even if the weather wasn't necessarily perfect for a day at the pool. Most of all, Ann Marie was a loving daughter, wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend to many. She will be deeply missed and never forgotten by all who knew and loved her.
Ann Marie is survived by her beloved and devoted husband, Russell M. Panzarelli, her loving children, Anna Maria, Vincent, and Concetta Angelina Panzarelli, her adoring parents, Albert and Ann Marie (Egner) Rinaldi, her dear siblings, Mary Rinaldi, Albert Rinaldi, and Danielle Rinaldi, and many cherished nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.
