Marie Roseann Ablondi, 96, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 surrounded by her family. Marie was born in Manhattan on November 10, 1924 to Sarah (Scarpulla) and John Nicolosi. She grew up in Little Italy with her 3 sisters, Sadie, Tillie, and Josie, and her brother Carmelo (Nick).
She met the love of her life, Mario “Gitch” Ablondi while summering at “the farm” in Chestnut Ridge, New York. On June 10, 1945, they married and raised their beautiful family in Pearl River, New York. They were married for 71 years.
Marie was the life of the party and nothing made her happier than spending time with her ever growing family. Whether it was birthdays, holidays, Sunday dinners, card games, or passing on the tradition of making her “witchidada” cookies, Marie cherished those moments being together. She spent many years traveling the world with her loving husband and many friends.
She was very social and a member of the Pearl River Senior A Club. She had a generous heart and a talent for knitting. She would knit baby hats to be donated to hospitals through the Senior A Club as well as knit sweaters, hats, booties, and blankets for her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
She spent many winters in Jupiter, Florida enjoying the warm weather and playing her daily game of Rummy-O by the pool with the girls.
Marie is survived by her daughter Cecile Goldsack (Ablondi), son-in-law James Goldsack, daughter-in-law Karen Ablondi (Maiorino); her grandchildren and their spouses, Jillian Nahoum (Ablondi), Robert Nahoum, Jenna Verdino (Ablondi), Robert Verdino, James Goldsack, Samantha Goldsack (Patterson), Priscilla Rossi (Goldsack), and Steven Rossi; her great-grandchildren, Isabella, Juliette, & Clara Nahoum; Derek & Vivian Verdino; Colin, Charlotte, & Rita Goldsack; and Eliana & Matteo Rossi.
The family finds deep comfort in knowing Marie has been reunited with her beloved son, Bruce, and soul mate, Mario.
