Marion Ruth Albanese, 94, of Maplewood, New Jersey, passed away on December 20, 2022.
Marion was predeceased by her loving husband, Lee R. Albanese. She is survived by her children, Lynn A. Tamburo and her husband Nicholas, Lee A. Albanese and his wife Nancy, and Carol J. Mauro and her husband Anthony; her grand children, Anthony, Mauro Jr. and his wife, Gina, Catherine Tamburo, Claire Higgins and her husband Joseph, Victoria Ventura and her husband Andrew, Caroline Albanese, and Christopher Albanese; and her great grandchildren, Charli Ventura, Anthony Mauro, and Magnolia Higgins.
Born and raised in East Orange New Jersey, she and husband became lifelong, proud residents of Maplewood in 1957 where they raised a family and built a rich life.
Crossword puzzles, bowling, exercise classes, traveling with family and friends, and just being Mema would be but a few of many highlights for her.
Throughout her life, she was always a bright loving star for her family, friends and acquaintances. Smiles and warmth followed her everywhere. Her wants were always modest but she would be quick to join in an adventure.
Visitation will be on December 27, 2022 from 3pm to 7pm at Bradley, Brough and Dangler Funeral Home in Summit, New Jersey.
