PARLIN - MICHELLE A. MUSARRA (née MANISERA) passed away, after a courageous 18-day battle, using up all of her strength and will, on Tuesday, December 28, 2021. She was 62 years young.
Born in Hackensack, she lived in Hasbrouck Heights, moving to Parlin 10 years ago.
Michelle dedicated herself to helping others as a Registered Nurse at Hackensack Hospital for many years. After leaving the nursing field, she continued to tirelessly help all she loved without ever a complaint.
The strength Michelle had was unparalleled. Nothing could stop her, no illness, no pain, nothing. She gave light even on the darkest days. Although we will no longer be graced by her beauty on earth, she will forever be the brightest star in the sky.
Michelle had an angelic voice. So many evenings she would sing at the table and bring joy to those lucky enough to hear her. Nothing was more special though, then when she would sing with her daughter, Amanda.
She was predeceased by her father, Victor Manisera; father-in-law, Frank Musarra; her sister-in-law, Dina, and her grandmothers, Florence Traina and Jenny Musarra.
Surviving are her husband of 26 years, Frank; her daughter, Amanda; her mother-in-law, Mary Ann, both of Parlin, and many extended family and friends, who have loved every moment of being on the Michelle roller-coaster ride.
