Obituary for Mary H Scalzo

Mary H. Scalzo (nee Auriemma) of Carmel, New York. Beloved wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, left us on February 16, 2019, at age 89. Mary was born on April 3, 1929 in Brooklyn, New York during the Great Depression, to Luisa (nee Colucci) and John Auriemma. On December 24, 1950, Mary married Thomas Scalzo at St. Francis DePaolo Church in Brooklyn, New York. This past December, they celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary.

We will always remember Mary’s devotion and love for her husband and family. She put her life and whole heart into nurturing them for nearly seven decades. We who are the recipients of that love and dedication are deeply grateful to her and hope that we may always be worthy of her endless gift, which was herself.

She was small in stature, but had boundless energy. Her cooking, and greatly anticipated preparation of traditional neopolitan holiday foods, delighted us all. Her warmth and friendliness charmed everyone. She was a homemaker in the truest sense of the word. She made a loving home for her family; an ideal of what home really means, that we will always cherish and carry in our hearts.

Mary is survived by her husband Thomas, her children Nicholas (wife Jeanette) of Meriden, Connecticut; John (wife Sally) of Florida; Veronica (“Ronnie”)(husband Michael) of Mahopac, New York; her grandchildren, Carey Ann Scalzo, Marissa Couch (husband Jeremy), Lynn Scalzo, Jason Scalzo, Michael Zunno and Annalisa Zunno; and great-grandchildren Jeremy Scalzo and Easton Couch.
