Raising thousands of fundraising dollars for her parish, she was one of the original founders of the Holy Innocents Ceramic Group and hosted many other fundraising events as a parishioner of Holy Innocents Church. Her love of knitting and crocheting allowed her to donate many items to local charitable organizations well into her nineties.

She is survived by her children: Frances Casciano and her husband, Lawrence of Cranford NJ, Charles Marisca and his wife, Diane, of Caldwell, NJ, Stephanie Marisca of Wakefield RI, AJ Marisca and his wife, Leigh Anne of Grayslake,IL; eleven grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.
