Mary Cannelongo

AGE: 88 • Wilmington

Mary Cannelongo, age 88, of Wilmington, DE, passed away Wednesday, March 15, 2017. Mary worked at DelCampo Baking Company where she met her husband, and then later worked at Hillcrest Associates. She took great pride in her major role as a homemaker and was devoted to her family. Her greatest joy in life was cooking Sunday dinner for them well into her early 80's. People loved being in her company because her gift of laughter was infectious.
