Mary De Lorenzo Obituary
Mary de Lorenzo

AGE: 90 • Whiting

Mary de Lorenzo, 90, of Whiting, passed away on Thursday July 10, in the early afternoon, at Henry Ford Village in Dearborn, Michigan. As a young Mary Cassio in Elizabeth, she attended Battin High School for Girls. Across the fence which separated Battin from boys school Thomas Jefferson she met future husband Sam de Lorenzo. WWII ensued; she worked as a secretary awaiting his safe return from naval service. Upon his graduation from the University of Maryland, the young couple wedded June 24, 1950. They raised three children and made four homes in Garwood, Cranford, Toms River and finally in Whiting. There she devoted over a dozen years to constant care of Sam. Her dedication allowed him to remain in their home until the last five months of his life. He preceded her in death on April 9, 2014 and awaits her at a heavenly fence to renew a love that lasted over 73 years including nearly 64 years of marriage.

Surviving are children, Gregory, Mark and Deborah, daughter-in-law Kit, her brother Rocco Cassio of Gilbert, Arizona, her cousins Carmela Rauseo, Frances Lentine, Rose Picaroni, Anthony Lentine, and Dominick Accardo, family friend Fran Fredella, and many nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death are brother Peter and sister Ann.

Visitation will be from 2 - 5 pm Thursday July 17 at the Family Owned Carmona-Bolen Home for Funerals, 66 Lacey Road, Whiting. A funeral mass will be celebrated Friday July 18 at 9 am at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Roman Catholic Church, Whiting. Burial will follow at 11:30 am as she is laid beside her beloved Sam at Brigadier General Wm. C. Doyle Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Wrightstown.

Mary de Lorenzo was a lifelong gardener. Flowers are welcome.
