  1. I worked with Marie for many years at the New Haven Register, we talked about her life with her nephew and her husband, he was her whole life, we would send each other cards at the holidays and talk on the phone each week, Her smile and hi-energy made me feel special and get over what was bothering me that day and we would laugh all the time, She will be sorely missed my me she will be in my heart forever and always. I still work at the New Haven Register I am here 47 years come Sept. 4th

  2. My condolences to all of Marie’s family, I worked with Marie at the New Haven Register, Classified Dept. 30 years ago, even though I was only in my early twenties, she related to people of all ages, and we had a good friendship. When Marie retired I lost contact with her. I’m still at the New Haven Register and when I read her obit this morning I thought of all the laughs she gave us everyday. She was a wonderful and kind person and that’s what I will always remember about her.

  3. Marie was loved by everyone at the Sister Anne Virginie Grimes Health Center. Marie inspired others to do their best and always appreciated their efforts. She always looked forward to parties and special events, bingo, singing and dancing as well as the baking and cooking club. We will miss her also as the Vice President of the Resident Council which helped make the residents lives better and helped plan exciting events and activities which Marie looked forward to. We will miss all those Italian songs, .Oh Marie and Peppino the Italian Mouse.. Marie always had a smile and a laugh that was so infectious. WE will dedicate our Easter pies to you Marie.
