Maria Marciano of New Rochelle, died on November 9, 2020 at the age of 78. Maria was the beloved wife of Anthony Marciano for 52 years. She was born in Ferrito, Italy on August 30, 1942, daughter of the late Giovanni and Angelina Messina. Maria was a dedicated and loving mother, survived by her children Pasquale (Toniann), John (Jeannine), Maria (Nick) and Mike (Nicole) and her pride and joy that call her Nonna, Sara, Anthony, Anna, Frank, Maria, Alexa, Racquel, Julia, Jake and Olivia. Maria also leaves behind her siblings Fortunata (Vicenzo), Domenica, and Philip (Maria) and many devoted nieces, nephews and their children.
Maria was a great and formidable woman that forged her way to success with nothing more than an elementary school education, hard work and a belief that she could accomplish anything. She came to America in her late twenties, established a business for 17 years in New Rochelle’s West End. She would run into people who would reminisce about the days of the store. Maria bravely fought Alzheimer’s for over five years and as the disease progressed, these were her fondest memories. She will be sorely missed.
Visiting hours will be Tuesday from 4-8pm at Lloyd Maxcy & Sons Beauchamp Chapel, 16 Shea Pl. New Rochelle, NY. A funeral Mass is scheduled for Wednesday 10:30am at Blessed Sacrament Church. Entombment will follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery.
