Obituary

MARIA (MARY) CONSTANTINO WAS BORN DECEMBER 6,1921 IN BROOKLYN, NY AND PASSED AWAY PEACEFULLY ON APRIL 7, 2020 AFTER LIVING A FULL AND WONDERFUL LIFE.  MARY WAS ADORED BY THOSE WHO KNEW HER AND WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED FOR HER WINNING SMILE.

SHE WAS A LOVING DAUGHTER, SISTER, WIFE, AUNT, MOTHER, GRANDMOTHER AND GREAT GRANDMOTHER.  SHE, HERSELF, WAS ONE OF NINE CHILDREN.  SHE WAS BLESSED WITH THREE SISTERS AND FIVE BROTHERS.  ALL OF WHOM WERE SUCCESSFUL ON THEIR OWN AND RAISED BEAUTIFUL FAMILIES CREATING MANY HAPPY HOMES.

 

MARY PLAYED MANY SPORTS AND WAS ESPECIALLY GOOD AT ROLLER SKATING AND SHE ALSO LOVED TO DANCE.

 

AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, SHE WENT TO BEAUTICIAN SCHOOL WHERE SHE BECAME QUITE AN EXPERT AT HER CRAFT AND WAS VERY MUCH IN DEMAND.

 

SHE WAS MARRIED ON APRIL 18, 1948 AND HAD FOUR CHILDREN – TWO GIRLS AND TWO BOYS.  SHE LOVED BEING A MOM AND HER HEART WAS ALWAYS FILLED WITH LOVE FOR HER FAMILY, HER WORK AND FOR THE MANY LUCKY CATS SHE RESCUED AND ADOPTED.

 

HER DAUGHTER, LUCILLE (LU) HAD A DAUGHTER OF HER OWN AND SHE NAMED HER ERICA (ERI).  ERI WAS THE LIGHT OF GRANDMA’S LIFE AND THEY WERE A TERRIFIC TEAM.  SHE ENJOYED TEACHING ERI HOW TO FOX TROT , HOW TO OPEN HER HEART TO THOSE AROUND HER AND SO MUCH MORE,

 

IN HER LATER YEARS, SHE SHARED A HOME WITH HER DAUGHTER VIKKI AND THEY CARED FOR EACH OTHER AND HAD MANY HAPPY TIMES. THEY CONTINUED TO CARE FOR CATS IN NEED AND GAVE MANY FURRY FRIENDS A GOOD HOME.

 

WHEN ERI HAD GIANNA AND GABRIELLA,  MARY BECAME A GREAT GRANDMOTHER AND CHERISHED EVERY MOMENT WITH THE KIDS.

 

AS SHE CONTINUED ON HER LIFE’S JOURNEY,  SHE RESIDED AT SUNRISE ASSISTED LIVING AND RECEIVED GREAT CARE AND MUCH KINDNESS FROM THE STAFF , WHO ALL TRULY ENJOYED HER COMPANY.

 

IT’S HARD TO PUT DOWN ON PAPER THE COMPASSION AND LOVE SHE HAD FOR THOSE AROUND HER.  SHE RARELY PUT HERSELF FIRST AND ONLY WANTED TO BRING HAPPINESS TO THOSE AROUND HER.

 

SO NOW, MARIA (MARIE, AUNT MARY) IS IN HEAVEN.

MARY LIVED TO 98 YEARS OF AGE “AMAZING” ! 

 

GOD MUST HAVE LOVED HER DEARLY TO MAKE HER LIFE SO LONG AND BLESSED.
