Maria Stella (Marie) Napolitano

Washington - Napolitano, Maria Stella (Marie), of Township Of Washington, NJ, passed away peacefully into the arms of the Lord surrounded by her loving family on September 4th, 2018 after a brief battle with cancer. Marie was born in Catania, Italy to Placido and Agata (nee Maugeri) Torrissi. She came to the U.S. when she was 14 years old. Shortly after, she met Joseph Napolitano at Seward Park High School. He would become her high school sweetheart and then husband. She attended Brooklyn College and then stayed home to raise her family. Marie was a 54 year resident of Township Of Washington, NJ. Marie was all class. She was an excellent cook and loved to entertain. She prided herself on her beautifully designed table settings. Receiving an invitation to her dinner table was a prize to be had. Some of her favorite things were travelling, Fox News, her daily shopping trips to Lord & Taylor and her weekly lunches with her friends. Along with her husband Joseph, Marie was a member of White Beeches Golf & Country Club for 37 years and was also a member of Naples Lakes Country Club in Naples, FL. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with family and friends. Marie was predeceased by her loving husband of 59 years, Joseph P. Napolitano, in June 2015. She is survived by her 3 children Michelle, Paula and her husband Augie and Steven and his wife Claire as well as her grandchildren Lisa, Chrissy and Joseph Ventura, Augie, Paul and Gina Sodora and Gabriella, Christina and Steven Joseph Napolitano. The family will receive guests at Becker Funeral Home, 219 Kinderkamack Rd., Westwood, NJ TODAY, Thursday, September 6th from 3-8PM. A Mass celebrating Marie's life and faith will be held at Our Lady Of Good Counsel R.C. Church on Friday, September 7th at 10AM with entombment at Maryrest Cemetery in Mahwah, NJ to follow.
