Elisa Marie "Mimi Bella" Frable Mosca

May 21, 1963 ~ July 24, 2022 (age 59)


Elisa Marie Frable Mosca also known as “Mimi Bella” was a caring mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. She passed away peacefully with her family at her side on Sunday, July 24, 2022 at Riverview Hospital at age 59.

She was born to Edward and Josephine “Candy” Frable on May 21, 1963 and was a proud long-time resident of Keansburg, NJ where she attended St. Ann’s grammar school. She graduated from St. Mary’s High School in South Amboy, NJ where she played soccer on the male team due to her athleticism and skill.

She loved to help people so a career in nursing was a natural fit for her. Mimi attended Brookdale Community College where she earned her Associate of Applied Science degree in Nursing. She was a Registered Nurse for the State of New Jersey for over 20 years. She started her nursing career at Marlboro Psychiatric Hospital in the acute medical unit. She then moved to Woodbridge Developmental Center where she initially served as a registered nurse and progressed to quality assurance specialist, responsible for conducting internal investigations. She then further applied her nursing expertise while working for Visiting Angels, training others to do this life-saving work. She treasured the special  friendships she made throughout her life and career. Mimi was a loyal, caring and devoted friend.

She was a single Mom who raised two children, a son Richard and daughter Elisa, while excelling in her nursing career. Her children meant the world to her- she loved them deeply and was always there for them. Her nurturing and caring spirit was also reflected in her love of animals, especially her cats. Throughout her life, Mimi enjoyed many a trip with her children and family to destinations near and far including in the U.S., Caribbean Islands and Europe. She also loved local destinations for camping, skiing and the beach, as well as walks on the Keansburg Boardwalk. Each year, she looked forward to the annual family gathering at Monmouth Park where she always put her money on the #4 horse. She was the ultimate host whether convening family and friends for a Luigi’s pizza and ice cream cake birthday party, Sunday football (where she was an avid Jets fan) or a classic yard party. She was known for her amazing spinach dip, sangria and Jell-O shots, which were always in high demand.

Her festive and colorful spirit showed up at every holiday and in overdrive at Christmas. The massive collection of decorations and lights made their presence known in a big way at 22 Palmer Place and it was beautiful. After midnight on Christmas morning, she would do the lighting of Baby Jesus in her front yard despite guaranteed lighting or technical issues. Mimi’s holiday spirit was energizing and contagious.

She was also a big fan of gift auctions and yard sales – having them and going to them – equally for the merchandise, extra cash and of course the conversation. She couldn’t pass one up, just like her Mother.

Mimi loved spending time in her yard with family and friends and she was a skilled gardener. Her yard was filled with her favorite – the sunflower – and she also tended to a robust garden and beautiful plants.

Her life was a reflection of her caring, loving, forgiving and of course her giving nature – helping people and connecting with people was just what she did - everywhere she went. She had a strong ethic and moral code. Integrity and honesty mattered deeply to her and she spoke up when she felt something was not right. At the same time, she was not one to hold a grudge.

As her final act of giving, Mimi was an organ donor not only because she was a great nurse but because that was simply who she was. Even in her passing she was able to provide life-saving organs to two people in need.

She will be missed dearly, loved deeply and remembered fondly by her family and friends. Mimi was predeceased by her parents, Edward Thomas Frable and Josephine “Candy” Frable and her former husband, Richard Junior Mosca of Manchester, NJ. Surviving are: her two children, Richard Anthony Mosca (Keansburg NJ) and Elisa Marie Kilpatrick (Hazlet, NJ); her three siblings Mary Jo Fabiano and husband, Nick Fabiano Jr. (Middletown, NJ) Edward P. Frable (Old Bridge, NJ) and Anna “Pinky” Frable (Red Bank, NJ); her two nieces Catherine and Caroline Fabiano (Middletown, NJ); and her boyfriend Lance Lally (Union Beach, NJ).
