Hasbrouck Heights - Nellie Fader, age 91, passed away on Friday, December 31, 2021, at home. Born in New York City, she was a resident of Hasbrouck Heights for 63 years. Beloved wife of 33 years to the late Melvin Fader (2014), Nellie is survived by her loving daughter, Roseann Thompson, and her husband, Larry. Predeceased by her adoring daughter Lisa Sangillo (2019). Predeceased by her dear brother, Sal Cabibbo (2016) (Maryann) and survived by her cherished brother, Joseph Cabibbo, and his wife, Ruby. Treasured grandmother of Lauren Roden (Sean), Matthew Thompson (Pamela), Lia Calo, Luke Calo, Gabriel Calo, and Mark Sproviero. Great grandmother of Emma Rose and Ava Ann Roden. Nellie was a business teacher at Rutherford High School for 25 years, where she touched the lives of so many of her students in a profound way. Throughout her life, she was devoted to her family especially her children and grandchildren. Nellie loved nothing more than spending time with them, baking her wonderful pies, cooking Italian meals, which she learned at an early age from her parents, Rose and Sal Cabibbo while growing up in their Italian bakery and market in Union City. She enjoyed the opera, theatre, museums, and traveling. Another source of joy for her was spending time with her family at her Barnegat Light beach house on LBI. Nellie was a sweet and loving person who was always there to lend a hand or listen. She always warmly welcomed friends to her home and loved to entertain especially during the holidays. She will be sorely missed by everyone who loved her. Nellie's happiest years were spent married to Mel, and together they were a beautiful example of true love and marriage. As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions in Nellie's memory may be made to Valley Hospice, 15 Essex Road, Suite 301, Paramus, NJ 07652, or St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
