Scarlet Bruno



Scarlet Bruno of Margate, N.J. passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, November 11, 2021 surrounded with love.


She was the daughter of Joseph and Rose Ammirato and was born and raised in Hammonton, N.J. She graduated from St. Joseph’s High School and attended Pierce College. Scarlet’s dynamic personality spread light wherever she traveled. As a devoted mother, she was an eager listener and a second mom to many friends, expelling advice whenever necessary. One of her greatest joys was being Nonna to her grandchildren, whether it was watching them perform or telling them one of her many stories.


Her fate was written in the stars, specializing in reading astrology and a lifelong devotion to spirituality. But her relationship with her husband, Frank, was a love story for the ages. Meeting at 16, they were inseparable. Frank cared for Scarlet until her last breath which he described as his greatest honor. Her fitting passing on 11/11 translates as angel numbers, an indicator that Scarlet was surely heaven sent. There is a hole in the hearts of those she left behind.


She is survived by her husband, Frank J. Bruno; their son, Frank A. Bruno and wife Allison Tan; their daughter, Desiree Romano and husband Gabriel Romano; and grandchildren, Scarlett-Rose, Levi, Dean and Zoey.


A brief interment ceremony will be held at Greenmount Cemetery in Hammonton on Thursday November 18, 2021, at noon. All are welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to her favorite charity, Friends of Joey Reiser Foundation, 124 Lake George Drive, Collings Lakes, NJ 08094.
