Debra (Delle Chiaie) Mania was born in Paterson & raised in West Paterson (Garrett Mtn. section), where she graduated from St. Bonaventure's Elementary School, Passaic Valley HS and Tombrock College with an Early Childhood Degree.
She and her husband Angelo G. Mania reside in Pompton Plains where they raised two wonderful sons, Anthony and Matthew, and now added to the family, our wonderful daughter- in- law Ashley, (Anthony’s wife) and their beautiful daughter, Evelyn, born Sept 8th, 2014, our first grandchild.

Debra began her career as a professional recruiter in Fairfield for 4 years. She took her sales experience to Deluxe Check Printers for the next 3 years, where she was their first female inside sales Rep among a group of 15 young men, (this was in the late 70's).

She happily began her family and after a few years continued to work part time to be able to continue to devote more time to her young family.
Debra was employed P/T for 3 years as a Nursery School Teacher and for the following 10 years was employed P/T by the Economic Press as an Inside Sales Rep. After the sale of the Economics Press to an out of the State firm, Debra began to work from home for the next 8 years to continue her inside sales position for the out of State Company and Managed a group of 4 people who also worked from home as inside sales Reps.

In 2011, Debra joined her husband Angelo at the Funeral Home to oversee all functions of the office, including Bookkeeping and HR, along with the decorating and updating of the funeral home. However, what is most important and meaningful to her, is assisting Angelo and the families on the morning of the funerals.

Debra’s hobbies are home decorating and staging for family and Friends and collecting sea glass with Angelo on the beach.
