A passing of a strong woman during the holy season is confirmation of the bountiful legacy of Marion. May her children experience comfort and may she rest in eternal peace.
Dear Aunt Marion, you were always like a mother figure to me. I’m glad we had a nice visit the last time I saw you. I didn’t know it would be the last. Your loving nephew Scott.

I can never forget the joy and comfort and a multitude of happy memories from time spent with Tina and her beautiful family. Mrs. Pezzulo was at the very heart of the home and many times was a cherished maternal figure for me. Her love of family was obvious and shone through every thought, word and action. Such a beautiful woman, inside and out. Rest in peace, Mrs. Pezzulo, and God bless your entire family.
Dear Marilyn, my heart is broken for you and your family. I’m sorry I only heard a few minutes ago. Your Mom was an amazing person. Love and prayers to you and all of your family… Bev and Dennis Ippoliti.
