Marie was the first born to Italian immigrant parents. After attending Catholic school, she left high school at the age 14 to earn money to send her younger sister, Theresa, to Catholic school. Marie never married. She was raised in St. Louis on The Hill and lived at home with her parents, taking care of them each until they passed away. She continued to live in her childhood home until the age of 75, when she moved to be closer to her sister.
Marie worked for Container Corporation of America for 40+ years. She also started a part time job at Styx Baer & Fuller, now Dillards, in 1958 to help pay for her first car and continued working there until the early 90’s.
Marie loved travel, shopping, and anything social. She was blessed to take 5 trips to Italy to see the relatives her parents left behind and enjoyed many vacations with friends and family.
Marie was deeply religious in her Catholic faith, kind hearted, generous, funny and a well-dressed person who took great pride in being Italian. If it was Italian, she loved it! She enjoyed her many friends and was the epitome of unconditional love. She was greatly loved by her sister’s children and their children; she was considered more than an aunt, she was truly a second mother and she will be greatly missed.
