CLARK, NJ - Local resident Assunta (Sue) Criscitiello recently visited the Newark Museum and had lunch at Red Lobster with a friend thanks to a wish granted to her by the New Jersey chapter of the Twilight Wish Foundation.  Criscitiello, 97, a resident at Clark Nursing and Rehabilitation, was accompanied on her trip by her friend Kayon Williams.

Criscitiello worked for 43 years for New Jersey Bell in Newark and Elizabeth and often visited museums and the theater in those days. “The museum was always a special place to me,” said Criscitiello. “The museum is beautiful, I enjoyed every minute.”
