Ann C. Briscese


Ann C. Briscese, of Warwick, NY, passed away peacefully on January 24, 2021 at Good Samaritan Hospital. She was 88 years old.

Born on October 15, 1932 in Brooklyn, NY, she was the daughter of Philip and Theresa (Gatto) Schiera.

Ann worked in Manhattan at a young age for a company formerly known as Scantlin Electronics (now Dow Jones) providing the NY and Chicago commodity markets with bid and ask prices. In 1970 she, her husband and son moved to Warwick NY. In 1973 she took a job in the Accounts Payable Dept. working for Big V Shop Rite in Florida NY from which she retired.   She was a member of St. Stephen’s R.C. Church and the Warwick Senior Citizens Club.

A family statement reads: “Ann devoted her life to caring for others, and she loved and worried about her family and friends. During her retirement days, she provided personal daily care for her sister and brother as well as for her best friend. She was also part of a program that would call other seniors “stuck at home” on a weekly basis. She was loved and respected by all who knew her.”

Ann is survived by her son, James Briscese and his partner Mary E. Wynne of Fort Pierce, FL; her granddaughters, Christina Wynn and her husband John Wynn of Newburgh and Diane Briscese and her partner Tom McClure of Pine Bush; by her great grandchildren: Laney Travers, RN, Brandon Wynn, Makayla Wynn and Dylan Marberger. She is also survived by her many nieces and nephews, many great-nieces, great-nephews and great-great nieces and great-great nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband James “Jimmy” Briscese and her five siblings; three sisters C. Mildred Conti, Mary Schiera and Geraldine Schiera and her two brothers Joseph and Salvatore Schiera as well as her best friend Katherine “Kay” Pluta of Florida NY.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, January 29th at St. Stephen’s R.C. Church.  Interment will follow in St. Stephen’s Cemetery.
