Tornatore, Mary Ann - Pompton Lakes  
Mary Ann Tornatore POMPTON LAKES, NJ Mary Ann Tornatore , 59, entered eternal life August 14, 2015, after a courageous battle with cancer, with her loving family by her side and in her heart. She was the daughter of Theresa D. Tornatore and the late Samuel J. Tornatore, Sr. Mary Ann was originally from Menands, NY, formerly of Utica, NY, and lived in New Jersey for the last 30 years. Mary Ann was a hard worker who made friends wherever she went. She started as a volunteer candy striper at Memorial Hospital (Albany) as a teenager, until she convinced them to hire her at the age of sixteen. She worked there until graduating from Vincentian Institute, Albany, in 1974. Mary Ann continued her education at Utica College while working full time at Spilka's Restaurant. She completed her Bachelors degree and immediately got hired by Household Finance Corporation as an assistant manager. Shortly after, Mary Ann got promoted to manage her own branch and moved to Clifton, NJ. She continued to advance her career, accepting a position in 1986 with Citicorp Credit Service, Inc. as a unit manager. She then took a position in 1990 with the Trust Company Bank (Jersey City) as Assistant Corporate VP of Finance. In 2000, Mary Ann joined the Seton Hall University family (South Orange, NJ), and moved to Pompton Lakes. She eventually was promoted to Bursar. She took great interest and pride helping young adults with their financial decisions. She was a strong, independent woman and a great role model for all. Survivors include her mother, Theresa; her siblings, John Tornatore, of Hartford, CT, Jayne (Jeff) Geary, of Jacksonville, FL, Frank (Lynn) Tornatore, of Troy, NY, Theresa Tornatore, of Menands, NY, and Samuel Tornatore, Jr., of Utica, NY; her beloved nieces and nephews; great-nieces and nephews; as well as several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Mary Ann had many friends in New Jersey that she considered family, especially Sandra, Pete, Morgan and Joey De Marco, of Lincoln Park, NJ, and Barbara (Halatin) Lanahan and family, of Cary, NC. Sandra and Barbara were her Jersey sisters, whom she held very dear to her heart. Because of Mary Ann's love of cathedrals-many of which she visited throughout the world-her Memorial Mass will be held at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception on Eagle Street, Albany, NY, on September 12, 2015 at 10:30 AM. Mary Ann was a huge advocate for education throughout her life, and she selflessly decided to have the Robert Wood Johnson Anatomical Association and Rutgers University benefit from our great loss.
