 Born on March 10, 1939, in Newark, NJ, Lou was the daughter of the late Pasquale and Jennie Ronco. She is now reunited in heaven with her husband, Anthony Fea, her sister, Aurora Bernard, and her parents.

Lou was the matriarch and spiritual leader of her family. She adored her roles as a nurturing mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and the 62 years she spent as a devoted wife.  She instilled a love for family, quality time, and her Italian heritage. Her love was overflowing and extended to all who joined her Sunday feasts on Fea Lane.

Beyond her immediate family, Lou impacted many lives through her work at MaryVale Daycare School , NorthEast Health and Fitness Center, and East Lincoln Christian Ministries.  Together with her husband, they created Marie’s Restaurant and The Coffee Shop, which became beloved community staples in Far Hills and Bernardsville, New Jersey.

Lou’s legacy lives on in her children: Anthony, Patrick, Matthew (Colleen), Sisto, and daughter Laura (Darrell) Suggs; her grandchildren: Dawn (Cam) Huffman, Alyssa (Tyler) Parries, Christina (Chris) Boyle, Andrew Fea, Joshua (Sarah), Christian and Anna Suggs, Michael and Mary Elizabeth Fea, Anthony (Sierra) Fea and Brad Gowan, Elena (Kevin) Tornillo, Sisto, Eva, Lauran, and Jennifer Fea; and her great-grandchildren:  Carter Huffman, Lucy Boyle and Charlie Tornillo. 

As we honor Lou’s memory, let us carry forward her legacy of wisdom, grace, and faith. She will forever remain in our hearts as our guardian, guiding us with her spirit of unwavering strength and unconditional love. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to or to Maryvale Day Care School at 2482 June Bug Rd, Vale, NC 28168.
