BIOGRAPHY

Article under construction

In her adult life, Pisano worked as a seamstress, and married Joseph A. Pisano in 1935. The couple had three children: Angelo, Marie, and John. Her daughter and her eldest son both predeceased her.

Pisano moved to Marlton, New Jersey in 1997. The following year, she was widowed after 63 years of marriage.

In March 2007, Pisano relocated to St. Augustine, Florida to be close to her elder son. On her 107th birthday, her granddaughter claimed that her secret to longevity was “good, clean living, her late husband, family, and God.”

Pisano died on 18 February 2022 at the age of 111 years, 322 days. She was survived by her younger son John, as well as seven grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

RECOGNITION

Pisano’s age was verified by Dr. Andrew Holmes and Paolo Scarabaggio, and was validated by the ESO on 11 March 2021.

At the time of her death, Pisano was Florida’s second-oldest resident after Ecuador native Ada Avila. She was also the third-oldest Italian immigrant after Brazil resident Delio Venturotti and Catherine Abate of New York.
