Louise Caruso (nee Puntillo) was born and raised in the Bronx, married Anthony "Tony" Caruso and moved to Fort Lee, NJ in the 1940's. She is survived by her son Frank "My Frankie" and wife Alice Caruso, granddaughter Christine Caruso, the most dedicated and kind family friend Marie Ciccone, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, grand nieces, grand nephews, extended family, friends and caretakers. She began cooking for her family at the young age of 13 and continued to do so every day, making it life long tradition of bringing family and friends together at her home for decades. Louise enjoyed listening and dancing to the big bands. She loved to go to the casino to play the slot machines and was always up for a game of cards…she almost always won and attributed her sharp mind to playing cards most evenings. The family will receive their friends on Wednesday 4-8 pm at the Frank A. Patti and Kenneth Mikatarian Funeral Home 327 Main Street "opposite the Fort Lee Library". A Mass will be held on Thursday at 11:00 am at Madonna Church on the Hill 2070 Hoefley's Lane, Fort Lee, NJ 07024. The Burial will be private.

    What a privilege it was to be "Weezie's" hospice nurse. She never complained and every visit was a joy for me. I just fell in love with her sense of humor and spirit. I will miss her so much.



  4. Christine you were lucky to have had a wonderful Grandma for so long. Your good memories of her will live in your heart forever more. Hugs whenever you need them. I know how hard this is.

  5. I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. May God almighty, father of tender mercies and all comfort continue to strengthen you all (2 Corinthians 1:3,4). How eager we all are to see the fulfillment of Gods promise to completely remove death, tears, mourning, outcry and pain (Revelation 21:4). The Bible also provides assurance of the resurrection hope for our dead loved ones (John 5:25). May these promises from God bring you comfort.
