She was preceded in death by her brother, John Ruggiero; significant other, John Dean; a grandson,, Richard Augustine; and special friend, John Middleton
Marjorie retired from Puritan-Warnaco after 35 years service. She enjoyed going to yard sales, playing bingo and organizing her bus trips to casinos in Atlantic City. She most of all loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Special thanks to Elaine for the care of our mother through her courageous battle with breast cancer, which ultimately took her life. The passionate care Elaine provided enabled our mother to enjoy her life as long as she had, given the insurmountable odds, and always brought a smile to mom’s face. Elaine has been more of a daughter than daughter-in-law.
Services will be held at the convenience of the family. Interment will be at Calvary Cemetery.
In memory of Marjorie, donations may be made to Maybrook Hills Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center.
Arrangements are by the Santella Funeral Home.
