She was affectionately known to all as Amy. Born in Hammonton, N.J., she spent most of her life there until moving to Buena, N.J. in 1999.

Amy was a homemaker and was known for her delicious meatballs and her famous homemade iced tea. She loved to cook for her family. Prior to falling ill, Amy loved her trips to the Casinos in Atlantic City. Amy traveled extensively throughout her life. She lived in Wales, U.K., with her second husband for three years, and traveled through Europe during that time. She also treated her parents to a trip to Italy.


Amy is predeceased by her parents, John (Fox) and Sue Previte; her husband, Joseph H Masi; her beloved daughter, Joanne; and her beloved sister and best friend in life, Beverly Corsiglia of Vineland, N.J.


She is survived by her two daughters, Debbie Zane and Cheri Culmone; two grandchildren, Kevin Zane and Margaret Prus; one great-grandson, Cyrus Cross; and three stepchildren, Joseph Masi, Paul Masi and Denise Rizzo (Frank). She will be sadly missed by her niece, nephews, cousins and friends.
