We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Jaqui-Kuhn Funeral Home
It is with great sadness that the family of Ida M. Pino, 102, announces her passing on December 3, 2021, in Tinton Falls, NJ.
Ida was born on November 20, 1919, in Lima Ohio. The daughter of Alfred and Nancy (Barbaria) Milazzo and the stepdaughter of Mary (Lupo) Milazzo. Her family left Lima Ohio in 1928 and moved to Highland Park, NJ where she grew up and married in 1948. Ida attended St. Paul’s school and was in the first graduating class of the Highland Park High School in 1938.
Ida worked as a bookkeeper for many years for Triangle Conduit and Cable in New Brunswick, NJ and then for several years for Middlesex County College, in Edison, NJ. Ida and her husband raised three children in their home in Highland Park and for many years at their beach house in Ortley Beach, NJ. She loved card games, especially Pinocle, and enjoyed Scrabble and cross-word puzzles.
After retiring in 1981, Ida and Auggie spent winters in St. Petersburg, Fl where they enjoyed the beach, local attractions, walking, playing cards and dining at many local restaurants, but most of all enjoying their friends and often visiting family and grandchildren. Ida was blessed to have a loving family. She adored her great grandchildren who kept her smiling and entertained right up to the end of her life. Her youngest sister Eleanor was always there for her, taking her on an Alaskan cruise and vacations to Florida after her husband passed away. Ida cherished her long friendship with Edna Thistle of over 80 years. Edna spent many days with her at the beach house and on several New Year’s Eves and would call her religiously right up to the very end.
Ida was preceded in death by her husband, Auggie, her siblings Antonio (Nino), William and Mary, and recently this year her son Ted (August III).
She is survived by her sister, Eleanor Milazzo; her son, Alfred Pino and daughter-in law Susan of Ortley Beach, NJ; her step daughter, Linda LaScola; six grandchildren (Heather Beattie, Heidi O’Hare, Joseph Pino, Rebecca Green, Michael Pino and Garrett LaScola); and ten great grandchildren.
