Obituary of Sharon E. Mazzanna

Please share a memory of Sharon to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Sharon Elizabeth Mazzanna (Bowman), 74, danced into eternity on March 13th, 2024 just one week before her 75th birthday. 

Born on March 20th, 1949 in Montclair, NJ to the late Edith (Reinhardt) & Woodrow Bowman, she brought joy and light into this world.

While pursuing a lifetime of passions, Sharon planted deep roots in Lincoln Park, NJ over 50 years ago. Sharon had numerous business ventures including Tom’s Pizza Inn, T & S Painting and Maintenance, and Imaginative Design. In addition, she was a Classroom Mom, Boy Scout Leader, Lincoln Park First Aid Squad Volunteer (amongst numerous other committees), Bank Branch Manager, Notary, and an Executive Assistant. 

Sharon blossomed into a nurturing mother to her children, Thomas M. Mazzanna Jr. (fiancé Teresa Hope Brewer), and Donna-Marie M. Quidley (fiancé Brian Annable). Sharon gifted her children with her cooking, wisdom, and stories of the good ol’ days.

Her heart overflowed with love for her grandchildren, Michael Mazzanna, Megan Mazzanna, Ashlyne Quidley, Lauren Mazzanna, and Nicholas Mazzanna. 

Sharon’s bond with Ashlyne grew deep. Late night talks of advice and ceramics/painting lessons at home to long walks up and down the aisles of their favorite stores for “exercise”. Mammy (as she called her) will always be her guiding light making sure she “got home okay”.

Sharon is preceded in death by her son, Rocco W. Mazzanna, and siblings, Linda Castles and Woodrow Bowman. 

She was a friend and mother to all who knew her. She will be missed by all especially her lifelong friend and ‘sister’, Lucille Matarazzo. The 2 were always on adventures, amusing antics, and creating change when needed. 

A memorial/celebration of Sharon's life will take place on March 20th, 2024 between 5 pm and 8 pm at Keri-Lozito Funeral Home in Lincoln Park, NJ.  Immediately following services, everyone is invited to join the family at The American Legion Post No. 279, 133 Main Street, Lincoln Park, NJ for a repast. 

Those who wish to send flowers, may do so. If preferred, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Heart Association in honor of Sharon.

Sharon painted her canvas of life with hues of love, laughter, and boundless compassion.
