Antoinette M. Recchia Obituary

Antoinette Recchia


Our dear Mother, Antoinette Recchia, after a long and full life, sadly passed away on May 13, 2024, at the age of 98. The daughter of Fortunato and Laura Baggetta, she was born April 22, 1926, and attended Herkimer High School where she graduated in 1944 and later graduated from Albany Business School. She was married to Joseph Recchia on June 25, 1955, who passed away on May 22, 1992. She was a devoted communicant of Sts. Anthony and Joseph Church and a member of Third Order of St. Francis.


She was a wonderful mother who was always there when we needed her. Family was the most important thing in her life along with her good friends who were special to her. From her daily phone chats, to joint family outings, to her love of cooking and entertaining, to vacations with family and friends (especially to Vegas), to even helping in times of sadness and difficulty, she truly appreciated and enjoyed what life gave her. She left behind many friends and was a well-loved member of the community in Herkimer where she lived. She will be missed.


Antoinette is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, Joseph and Gail Recchia of Albany, and Louis and Rosalie Recchia of Saratoga Springs; four grandchildren, Catherine and Lauren Recchia, and Ryan Recchia and Fiona Recchia & her husband, Andrew Sickles, along with her great grandchild, Jordan. She is also survived by one brother and sister in law, Joseph and Katie Baggetta, and two sisters-in-law, Jane and Francis Baggetta, and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers, Dominick, Frank, Salvatore and Anthony Baggetta.


Her funeral will be held Monday morning 11:00am in St. Anthony and Joseph Church, S. Main St., Herkimer, where a Mass of Christan Burial will be celebrated by their family friend, Rev. Geoffrey Burke. Interment will be in Calvary Cemetery. There will be no public calling hours. In lieu of flowers, donations in Antoinette’s memory may be made to Sts. Anthony and Joseph Church, 229 S. Main St., Herkimer, NY 13350. Envelopes will be available at the church vestibule.


Her funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Petykiewicz, Iocovozzi Funeral Home, Herkimer.
