Lucille Anne Alves of Lincoln Park, NJ. Beloved wife of the late Joseph C. Alves was born on July 24, 1943 and laid to rest on April 05, 2020 peacefully with her children by her side.
Lucille is survived by her 5 loving children Joseph Schibelli, Suzanne Barrett, Marlaina Sybesma, Pamela Adler, John Schibelli and their families and is predeceased by 2 sons Gerard and Jude. She was most proud of her 11 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. Born to Anthony and Fannie Domenick, raised in Belleville, NJ and the youngest of 9 siblings of which she is survived by her sisters Mildred Cerami, Violet Slater and Vera Cusinelli. She was also a loving aunt to many nieces and nephews. Lucille grew up to fulfill her dreams of being a housewife and loving mother. This was all she wanted out of life.
Her passion and therapy was to cook anything and everything, it’s what kept her happy and the stack of recipes could fill a closet. If someone mentioned a favorite dish, you could bet for sure she would cook it up and deliver it the next day. We all had to be very careful what we said to her because one would gain 40 pounds that month – it was the family joke. It has been said that if you gave her a big enough kitchen, all the ovens, KitchenAids and food she requested, she would be able to feed an entire city single handedly and would not stop until there were leftovers for everyone to bring home. The size of her heart and generosity will be hard to match.
Most of all it was her love for everyone that was a part of her life and, with no exception, she spread it around evenly. She made it clear that love should not be measured (you can never run out of it) and that you should give all that is required to who needs it the most. In the time of need or despair, Lucille made sure that those in need were comforted and given everything they needed to make it through. She put herself last, regardless of her pains and needs. She had no regrets – she never complained – she would never tell you. It was her way of teaching us all how to “LOVE”, how to “GIVE” and how to most of all “BE A FAMILY”. We have learned and will continue in her likeness. She has given us so much and will be deeply missed by all that she touched.
On this day she has returned to heaven by the grace of God and will be comforted in the way she has done for so many. May she continue to guide us and be our light. May she rest in peace with all the love and the arms of her children wrapped around her.

In the future, there will be a Funeral Mass and celebration of Lucille's life.

Aunt Lu, as I know her, was famous for her onion pizza pie! Delicious!!!!! She was a beauty, always smiling and laughing. I loved chatting with her and giggling at her niece Lisa's parties or at her sister Millies. She had a big heart and lots of love to give! You will be missed Aunt Lu!! RIP xo
Love you,
Gina (Lisa Hulley's friend)

Heartbroken. Sad to say, I have lost part of my family, my sister Lucille whom I love dearly. We always respected and supported each other We shared stories -both the good and bad. We were always laughing when we were together.

She gave all the good she could to everyone, no matter what. There was even one time that Joe and I went to visit her in Florida. When we got there, Lucille had a bubble bath ready for me. There were candles, a robe, perfumes...everything. She made me feel like a princess. It was a very special moment for me.

She was the real homemaker, loved decorating for the holidays and most of all loved to cook delicious gourmet dinners. We always asked her for recipes. My favorite was her cheesecake recipe. Holiday dinners were very special and she presented each dinner with love and fashion. She will rest with all the angles and saints. I love Lucille and her beautiful family. I will miss her from the bottom of my heart. May she rest in peace.
Your Sister, Mildred
