Michele began her journey on July 27, 1946, in Ocean City, NJ. She danced, sang, sunbathed, and grew up, the oldest of five children, through the streets of Ocean City. She waited patiently and met the love of her life, high school sweetheart, and eternal soulmate, Paul Richard Iannace Sr. They married and brought four boys into the world to roam the streets of Ocean City. Early in their marriage she was raising the boys, working as a bookkeeper for her brothers’ marina, and supporting her Marine. As the boys grew, the free time gave her an opportunity to begin working for the Board of Education in the City of Ocean City. Not only did it give her time to make extra money for the household, but she could keep an eye on her four boys terrorizing the schools she worked for. As casinos began to open in Atlantic City, she decided to move her talents elsewhere. She opened the Playboy Casino as an accounts payable clerk. She then became the proud payroll manager at The Claridge where she worked until her retirement. Retired she spent precious time with her husband Paul watching their family grow. She enjoyed sewing, cooking, and baking. They moved to Hudson Florida for a few years and volunteered her time reading books to young children in school. Eventually, missing the grandkids, they moved back to New Jersey. In 2015 she lost her beloved Paul. She has missed him dearly since. She decided it was time to join her love, kissed and said goodbye to all, and now eternally sits by his side looking down with smiles at their beautiful legacy. She is predeceased by her husband Paul, her parents Nancy (Edward) Pribek (Stetser) and Lawrence Michael Allegretto, grandmother, Lillian Stetser, sister, Terrilin, and great-grandson, Logan McDevitt. She is survived by her four sons, Michael, Paul Jr. (Marg), Vincent (Melanie), and Dominic (Lisa), sisters Nancygail (Dennis) Jones and Dawn Pribek (Paul Hewes), brother Larry (Cindy) Allegretto, fifteen grandchildren and their spouses, and nine great-grandchildren. A viewing will be held Friday, December 10, 2021, at Church of the Resurrection Maximilian Kolbe Parish in Marmora, New Jersey beginning at 9:30 am with a mass following at 11:00 am. Interment will be held following mass at Seaside Cemetery. Memorial contributions in her memory may be made to Tunnel to Towers Foundation, 2361 Hylan Blvd., Staten Island, NY 10306
