Anne Jeanette Miano fell asleep to be with the Lord and left us on Saturday, February 13, 2021. She was the fourth of eight children born to Frank “Hank” Pallett and Marie Orsino Pallett on November 24, 1944 in Pelham, NY. She was with us for 76 years.
Anne attended public schools in Eastchester, Mount Vernon and Pelham. An entrepreneur at the early age of 17, she left Pelham Memorial High School (she later earned her GED in the 1970s) to start her own beauty and hair salon in Dobbs Ferry, NY. There she began her loyal following. She continued to work in Pelham and New Rochelle well into the 1970s. During the early 1960s she met who would be the man she would fall and stand in love with, Costantino “Dino” Miano. They were married in 1965 and were anticipating celebrating 56 years of marriage this April 25. Together they built a life that was filled with great family and friendships but included great obstacles to overcome. Anne and Dino raised two sons, Anthony and Frank (Blanka). She was blessed to have had the opportunity to share her love with two beautiful grandchildren, Julianna and Lucas. Anne is survived not only by her loving family including her brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews and in-laws but also by all of her friends. Her community of family and friends, and the years of shared experiences enjoyed, can never be more important to acknowledge and appreciate more than now.
To know Anne was to love Anne. She was always preoccupied with the well-being of others, even when the end came. She had the amazing ability to make you feel her love at the instant you were with her. She was always ready to lend an ear, a hand, a figurative arm or to share a moment in prayer when strength was needed. When challenged by life’s hardships or the multiple – and sometimes debilitating ailments rooted in her struggle with diabetes – she always pressed forward with strength and purpose of determination. Her undeniable character was deeply rooted in her unwavering faith. Her “rock” – perhaps it is more apt to say her mountain – was God’s Word and her knowing that through Jesus Christ we are all saved and that “they might have life, and have it more abundantly”.
In lieu of flowers, family and friends are encouraged to honor Anne Jeanette Miano by giving what they can to either the American Diabetics Association (www.diabetes.org) or the American Cancer Society (www.cancer.org).
