Obituary of Fay Perrotti
Please share a memory of Fay to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Fay ?Fannie? Perrotti, 95, of Lake Saint Louis, Missouri, died Friday, November 10, 2006 at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, surrounded by her loving family. Born in Paterson, Fannie was the daughter of the late John and Bernice Budryk. The family raised her in Paterson, where Fannie married Patrick Perrotti on November 11, 1945 in St. Stephen?s R.C. Church. The two settled in Prospect Park, where they raised two daughters and lived until Patrick?s death in 1978. As a young woman, Fannie opened her own hair salon, The Rainbow, in Totowa, which she owned and operated until the birth of her first daughter. According to her family, she was a very domestic woman, loving the chore of taking care of her home and family. She was famous for her ravioli, and also enjoyed sewing, knitting and entertaining. In addition, Fannie loved to gamble, enjoying trips to Las Vegas and Atlantic City. She was a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Rams. Her daughters say she was a feisty woman, who, at the age of 90, was strong enough to beat lymphoma. Even at the end of her life, they say, she would love to get out of the house and go shopping, an activity she truly loved. Fannie is survived by her devoted daughters, Diane Ligotti of Wayne and Nancy Stark of Lake Saint Louis, Missouri; her dear brother, Edmund Budryk of Prospect Park; her cherished grandchildren, Dana Strauss of Wayne and Mark Prommel of Manhattan; and her adored great-granddaughter, Leah Strauss. Funeral services for Fannie will commence 9 a.m. Wednesday at the funeral home, and will proceed to a 10 a.m. Funeral Mass at St. Mary?s R.C. Church in Pompton Lakes. Burial will follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Totowa. Visiting hours will be Tuesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, donations in Fannie?s memory to the Nordlicht/Weiss Research Fund, Heart Care Institute, Washington University Cardiology, 1020 North Mason Road, Suite 100, Creve Coeur, MO 63141 would be greatly appreciated by her family.
