Obituary of Jane Antritano
Jane Antritano (Toscano)
Rochester NY – Jane Antritano received her angel wings on Friday December 2, 2022 to join her beloved husband Dominic in heaven who passed away February 16, 2008. Jane Toscano was born January 12th 1933 in Rochester NY to Nunzio and Mary Toscano. She had 2 sisters and grew up on Brown Street on the west side of the city. Jane’s oldest sister, Millie Jodoin (Ray decd), lives in Sarasota FL and her younger sister Joyce Martone (Don) passed away in 2017.
Jane is survived by daughter Lisa Fulmer, her husband John, son Jonathan (Kristina, daughters Lola, Elianna). Daughter Donna Moszkowicz, her husband Roman, children Storm and Shelby (Daniel). Daughter Debra Crandall, her husband Ron, children Troy (Kelly and their son Dominic named after his great grandfather), Kali and Lucas (Liz). In addition, Jane is survived by many relatives and dear friends
Jane graduated from Saint Joseph’s Commercial High School in 1950 and married her true love Dominic Antritano in 1958. Dominic was a Rochester City Firefighter, and the married couple bought their first home on Amsterdam Street. Jane and Dominic had 3 wonderful daughters (Lisa, Donna, Debra) and the Antritano’s moved to their second home in Irondequoit, where they raised the family.
Jane was a beautiful woman in more ways than the eye sees. She was a gracious mother to her three daughters, setting role model examples of elegance with a touch of class. Jane had impeccable taste with almost everything she came across, from fashion to graphic design. Regarding taste, nobody cooked better than Jane. Her holiday spreads of delicious Italian dishes are legendary. To witness Jane manage a feast for friends, family and neighbors with such ease, was nothing less than amazing.
Being a wonderful wife to Dominic and a caring mother to her 3 girls was not all. Jane had a great eye for design and graphics, so she started her own business and created “Jay’s Mailing” Service. Jane ran a fulfillment and mailing service right out of her home, supporting some of the finest printing companies in Rochester. And when the equipment went down, it was Jane under the hood fixing the problem as she was also a great troubleshooter. In addition, Jane was a talented calligrapher, handwriting thousands of invitations to compliment her wedding card business.
Above all, enjoying family and friends was the most important part of Jane’s life. Dominic and Jane opened their home and hearts to so many people. Their home was the magnet to most family and neighborhood gatherings spreading their smiles and warm feelings in every direction. Nothing brought more joy to Jane than being with family, especially with her children, grandchildren and great grandchild. She was blessed that all three daughters lived in the greater Rochester area, allowing her to always be close by and enjoy all the special occasions as her grandchildren grew up.
There are a few people in Jane’s life that were very special to her and her husband Dominic. Joe and Connie Capizzi were the dearest of all lifelong family friends and they did just about everything together for over 50 years. From holidays, to birthdays, to vacations, it would be Jane, Dom, Joe and Connie painting the town. Whether Saratoga Springs, Italy, or Puerto Rico … you know this gang was in town by the time they left. And back home, the Christmas parties given by both families were legendary. Gifts for the grandchildren would fill a basement, the never-ending food was indescribably delicious and of course Santa and Mrs. Santa came down the stairs adding to the holiday magic.
Other special friends close to Jane’s heart are Angie and Lee Calavito along with Florence and Jim Falzone (decd). Jane would not want to leave out Carol and Adina who became very close friends, volunteering together at the Pittsford Senior Living Center.
Although Jane’s life was never quite the same once her beloved husband Dominic passed away in 2008, she received incredible love and support her remaining years. The compassion and care her daughters provided on a daily basis was incredible, always seeking and providing the best for their mother. And there were others that became dear friends and caregivers for Jane. The last residence for Jane was the Rochester Presbyterian Home on Thurston Road and it was truly a blessed haven for Jane. The staff were wonderful comfort givers to Jane, offering unconditional care and compassion every day. The outpouring of love for Jane from RPH staff will never be forgotten.
Jane’s Memorial Service and Celebration of her life will be held on Saturday December 17th 2022 at 11:00 AM at the Chapel in Christ our Light Mausoleum, in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery (2461 Lake Ave, Rochester NY 14612).
In lieu of flowers Jane’s family requests donations to the Rochester Presbyterian Home, 256 Thurston Rd, Rochester NY 14619.
