Marianne O. (Ritter) COSTANZI

Age 89 of St. Paul Died November 19, 2013 Passed away peacefully on November 19, 2013 at the Cerenity Senior Care Home, one month shy of her 90th birthday. She was predeceased by her husband, Nello (with whom she shared a passionate, dramatic and loving marriage of nearly 60 years), and her first born child, Barry. She is survived by her five remaining children: Annette, Maureen, Victor, Christopher and Francine, 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grand-children. Marianne/Mom was a strong influence on all of us and she conquered many obstacles throughout her life with her force of character. At her best when helping someone through a crisis, she has left a lasting example of how strength and care can combine to help one move through the drama of life's storms, and into a place of resolution, comfort, and ultimately, peace. Mass of Christian Burial 10AM Monday at the CATHEDRAL OF ST. PAUL, Selby at Summit. Interment Sunset Memorial Park. Visitation 2-7PM Sunday (TODAY) at Willwerscheid Funeral Home, 1167 Grand Ave., St. Paul. In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred. She will be missed – and celebrated: "Isn't this FUN!" – by us all. Thank you Mom, we love you. Logo
