Mrs. Robertello was born in Newark, NJ and resided in West Caldwell for the past eight years.  She was a secretary at Abington Avenue School, Newark for over 40 years before retiring 12 years ago. Affectionately called "Rere" by her late husband Mike, the name stuck with all of her grandkids. You could usually find Rere sitting on the couch flipping through a People Magazine or on her iPad playing solitaire. She loved to cook for all of her grandkids, famous for her Sunday gravy, meatballs, chicken cutlets, and grilled cheese. She was always there to hold her grandchildren's hand.


She is survived by her beloved children Dr. Michael Robertello and his wife Ann, Joan Binkiewicz, Cathy Maddaloni and her husband Joseph, and Michelle Laratta and her husband Daniel; her loving sister Barbara Hoogmoed; her cherished grandchildren Jessica, Katelyn, Anthony, Daniel, Michael, Jr., Mark, Laura, Christopher, Matthew, Andrew and Dana; and also her loving nieces and nephew Karen, Kim-Ann and Edward.


Mrs. Robertello is predeceased by her husband Michael A. Robertello (2019), her parents Edward and Rachel (nee Poeta) Di Nola, and her grandson Joseph Binkiewicz (2015).
