Nicholas Goffredo Obituary, Death – On Monday, December 19th, 2022, in her residence, Theresa A. (nee-Payne) Goffredo passed away. There was an 80-year age gap between them. Terry Payne was born to John and Philomena (nee-Chick) Payne in Paterson, New Jersey, but he spent much of his childhood in Totowa. She finally tied the knot with her soul mate Joseph in 1980, and the happy pair settled in Lincoln Park. Terry was the office manager at Brogan Cadillac in Totowa for 29 years before moving on to her current position at Par-Troy Funeral Home. Terry exemplified dedication to a cause. She was a pillar of support for her sick husband Joe and her elderly mother and aunt. She was Irene’s constant and trustworthy companion. Together, they managed to finish it all.
They were inseparable, whether they were taking a stroll along the Clearwater Beach boardwalk, crabbing and fishing off the dock at the Jersey Shore, attending mass at Notre Dame, or watching their favorite football team. The absence of her voice, laughter, or amusing comments that might cause a chuckle at any time must have been felt by her nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews, who all stated she was like a second mother and grandmother to them. Terry, a devout Roman Catholic, had a special place in his heart for the Blessed Mother. Regularly, she would go to church, either virtually or physically.
Her parents, John and Philomena Payne, and her husband, Joseph, all passed away before she did. Jacqueline, Olivia, Jack, Giancarlo, Madison, Gianni, Mason, Sofia, Savanna, Stella, and Brady Snyder, Renee Richardson, Kristen Marucci, and Ronald DiMaggio II and his wife, Jennifer are all dearly loved members of her extended family. On Friday, January 6, 2023, at 8:45 a.m., her funeral will be held at the Par-Troy Funeral Home, 95 Parsippany Road, Parsippany (973)887-3235 or www.partroyfuneralhome.com. She will have a Christian burial liturgy at Saint Ann R.C. Church, 781 Smith Road, Parsippany, NJ, at 10:00 a.m. on the day of his interment at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Totowa. On January 5th, 2023, from 4pm-7pm, there will be a wake service performed at the funeral home.
