'Michael - Arnone Lived Here 53 Years'
Michael Arnone of Shrewsbury avenue, a resident of Red Bank more than 52 years, died Sunday afternoon of heart trouble. He has been ailing about three years and had been confined to bed since December 13.
Mr. Arnone was born at Naples, Italy, a son of the late Dennis and Angelina Arnone. He was in his 66th year. He came to Red Bank with his parents when he was 13 years old. He conducted a grocery and meat market at Shrewsbury avenue and Earle street 12 years. Four years after opening his store, he opened a store, now known as Arnone Brothers market at River street and Shrewsbury avenue.
He married Miss Jennie Libretti of Brooklyn in July 1898, 41 years ago this July. They started housekeeping on Catherine street and later moved to a house on Shrewsbury avenue adjoining Mr. Arnone's store. The marriage was blessed with 13 children, 11 of whom survive. They are Joseph, Frank, James John, Dennis, Patrick, Michael, Jr., Miss Mildred Arnone, Mrs. Allen Collins, and Miss Lucille Arnone, all of Red Bank, and Mrs. Carlo Apollo of Masbeth, Long Island. He also leaves three sisters, Mrs. Joh Abbatemarco and Mrs. John Setaro of Red bank and Mrs. John Calandriello of Fair Haven. Surviving also are five grandchildren, Michael Joseph and John Arnone, sons of Joseph Arnone; Michael John Arnone, son of John Arnone; Michael James Arnone, son of James Arnone, and Frank and Ann Apollo, children of Mrs. Carlo Apollo.
Rev. Francis J. Dwyer, assistant director of St. James's church, of which Mr. Arnone was a member, and Rev. Thomas Nolan, led members of the St. Vincent de Paul society of the church in reciting the rosary at the late residence Tuesday night.
Several hundred persons attended the funeral yesterday morning at the late residence and two automobiles were required to convey the floral tributes. A solemn high mass of requiem was celebrated at St. James' church by Rev. Dr. John B. McCloskey, rector, Father Dwyer was deacon and Father Nolan was sub-deacon. The Boys' choir of Red Bank Catholic high school sang and Sister Mary Mercy was organist.
Internment, in charge of the Worden funeral home, was in Mt. Olivet cemetery, where Rev. Dr. McCloskey and Father Dwyer recited prayers at the grave. The bearers, all cousins, were Vincent, Frank and Thomas Arnone, Rocco and Joseph Calandriello and William Sarto.
