Born in Taylor on Jan. 9, 1949, daughter of the late Salvie and Beatrice Bissitte Lettieri, Marion attended the former Moosic High School. After earning a degree in cosmetology from Empire Beauty School, she worked as a self-employed beautician. After becoming a certified nurse's aide, she worked at the Gino Merli Veterans Center in Scranton before her retirement. She was a longtime member of St. Paul's United Church of Christ in Taylor.
She had a talent for the craft of knitting, having made afghans for all of her family. She was also an animal lover who adored her dog, Pugsley. An avid traveler who had fond memories of her time spent in Italy, her favorite stop had always been San Francisco's Pier 39. An amazing wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt and friend to many, she'll be long remembered and missed by all of those who loved her.
She is also survived by her adoring children, her son, John Reviello and wife, Josephine, Drums; and her daughters, Bernadine Haas and husband, Robert, Taylor; Michielle and Stacey Reviello, both of Old Forge; and Becky Belotti and husband, Jamie, Duryea; her brothers, Joseph Lettieri and wife, Marie, Old Forge; and Thomas Lettieri and wife, Patricia, Alabama; half siblings, Patricia Bissitte and Robert (Bobby) O'Neill, North Carolina; six grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
