FAIRFIELD – Ann (Levine) Latronica Nesbitt, 83, passed away on Friday, April 17, 2020, at the Ludlowe Center for Health and Rehabilitation in Fairfield.
She was born on July 26, 1936, in New York, NY, the daughter of the late Louis Levine and Ruth (Schreckinger) Levine Parish, and later, beloved stepdaughter of the late Reginald Parish.
She was a 1954 graduate of Brooklyn Homemaking High School. Upon graduation, she married her high school sweetheart, Frank Latronica, and they had four children together. Ann learned to cook big Italian dinners for her family which is something she enjoyed doing all her life. She would never come to a party empty-handed. Ann was also a talented seamstress having fashioned beautiful wardrobes for her children, including stunning holiday attire and intricate Halloween costumes.
In 1979, she married her second husband, George Nesbitt. That year, she also began working for the Group Sales Box Office in New York, NY, which fueled her love of the theater.
Ann enjoyed music, dancing, the beach, coffee—and was a devoted football fan. Above all, what was most important to Ann was her family.
Ann was predeceased by her sister, Roslyn Calandriello. She is survived by daughter, Deborah Latham and her husband Roy of Easton; daughter, Cheryl Masone of Smithtown, NY; son, Frank Latronica of New Hyde Park, NY; daughter, Alison Latronica of Middle Village, NY; seven grandchildren, Charity Latham, Eric Latham, Matthew Latham, James Masone, Frank Masone, Brandon Latronica and Ryan Latronica; two great-grandchildren, Eleanor Latham and Thea Latham; and one half-brother, Dennis Parish of Santiago, Chile.
A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at Ludlowe Center for Health and Rehabilitation—in particular, Theresa, Kathy, Santiago, Alison, Murielle and Emily, who provided Ann with compassion and supportive care over the past several months.
Memorial contributions in Ann’s name may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 225 N. Michigan Ave., Fl. 17, Chicago, IL 60601.
