Anna Mary Peraino, 70, of Voorhees NJ, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on May 5, 2016.
She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt who always prioritized family above all else, and lived her life with courage, strength, and dignity.
Anna was born in Philadelphia on October 24, 1945 and was married to Joseph Peraino Sr. (deceased) for 50 years.
Anna had a 20 year career in the gaming industry as a black jack dealer in both Reno NV and Atlantic City NJ, until her lung cancer diagnosis in 2000.

"I love and miss my Grandmom tremendously. She was beautiful and funny. She was a great cook and she spoiled me. She always stressed the importance of family. Love you forever tootsie"
"An inspiration and a lesson in never giving up!! Loved her family more than anything else. I will miss her. I will miss the laughter and the talks about what was happening in the world. And....the shopping. Enjoyed the shopping and her always telling me what looked nice and what wasn't so nice!!"
