Louise Marro, a longtime resident of the Bronx, passed away on August 23, 2023 surrounded by her loved ones.

Mrs. Marro was born on August 29, 1951 in New York City to the late Charles and Helen Paradiso. She married Anniello Marro on April 4, 1969 and together they had 3 daughters: Kathy, Helen (DeAngelis), and Louise (Lattarulo). She loved to be around people and made an impact upon others wherever she went because of her gentle nature. Her sense of humor was second to none as reflected in her laughter.

Her greatest accomplishments were being a wife to the late Anniello Marro who died on October 10, 2016; irreplaceable mother to Kathy, Helen, and Louise; loving mother-in-law to Vincent and Anthony; and above all a proud grandmother to Neil, Olivia, Farrah, and Louis.

Visiting will be Friday from 4-8pm at John Dormi & Sons Funeral Home, 1121 Morris Park Avenue, Bronx. Mass of Christian Burial will be Saturday at 10am at St. Francis Xavier Church, 1703 Lurting Avenue, Bronx. Interment will be private.

    Girls, I am so terribly sorry. I never saw your mom where she didn’t have a smile on her face. All our conversations were in the supermarket or on “the Avenue ” and always grandchild related. May she RIP with your dad.

  9. Kathy on November 7, 2023 at 10:29 am

    We all miss you so much mom.We love you so much and would do anything to have you back here with us. There is such a void and an emptiness that cannot be explained. I love and just miss you beyond words.

  10. Kathy on November 27, 2023 at 7:08 am

    Thanksgiving, just like everyday since you have been gone was nothing without you. I love and miss you so much mom. I was reading that book that we put together and as I was reading it, it took me back to the days when we were doing it. You are loved and missed beyond words mom and the void is just too much to explain. I love you mom.

  11. Kathy on December 3, 2023 at 7:16 am

    We all miss and love you so much mom. I just cannot believe that you are not with us anymore. You always loved this time of the year and I am having a really difficult time with it. Please continue to watch over all of us mom. I love you.

  12. Kathy on December 4, 2023 at 10:43 am

    I love and miss you very much mom. I know that you are resting in peace, but that does not take the pain of not having you here with us away. I know that you will continue to watch over all of us.

  13. Kathy on December 7, 2023 at 9:21 pm

    Another day without you! You are so loved and so missed every single day mom. You were so strong and loved by so many. I find myself thinking “oh I have to tell mom this ” So strange not being able to pick up that phone and hear your voice on the other end. We all just miss you terribly. I am grateful for the dreams, but waking up is a nightmare because they were just dreams. I love and miss you very much mom.

  14. Kathy on December 11, 2023 at 8:59 pm

    I miss you so much mom. Life is just not the same without you here with us. There is an emptiness that I cannot explain. I feel very lost without you. I love you mom.

  15. Kathy on December 12, 2023 at 6:36 pm

    Mom, I am trying, but it is so difficult without you here with us. I was flipping through the channels last night and your favorite performer had a special on for the holiday season ( Barry Manilow). I thought about how much you would have loved it. I miss and love you so much mom!

  16. Kathy on December 17, 2023 at 8:47 pm

    Mom…..You are so missed and loved. I cannot process that you are not going to be here with us on Christmas or on any other day for that matter. Nothing is the same mom. Thinking about you brings laughter and tears. I know that you are watching over all of us from above.

    • Kathy on December 20, 2023 at 11:13 am

      Mom….I miss you terribly today,just like every other day since you have been gone. The dreams feel so real. They make me want to sleep just so I can see you. I know that you are not suffering anymore, but not having you here with all of us is just so painful. There are so many times during the day that I say “I cannot wait to tell mommy this.” I know that your presence is here because I can feel it. There really are no words mom. I know that you did not want to leave us. You fought so hard and you were always so positive…always a smile on your face no matter how bad you were feeling. Your laughter was contagious and you brought joy to everyday just by being you. I went to one of our doctors yesterday and the outpouring of love was amazing. You made such impressions unto others that they will never ever forget. This Christmas you will be surrounded by all those in heaven who you love and who love you. They are the lucky ones mom. I love you mom.

  17. Kathy on December 21, 2023 at 5:56 pm

    Mom….You are and will always be forever missed and loved. It helps some to write like this. I just cannot process that you really are not here with us. It feels surreal. We have each other to lean on here but you were the pillar of strength fir all of us and now, the viod of not having you to turn to is just unreal. I was at a friend’s house last night and she pulled pictures out from our early days of teaching. We came across some of the Thankgiving celebration that we had with the students. You and dad were in a few. He was carving the turkey breast ( that was when we cooked everything at home the night before). Good memories. I wished that I could make those pictures come to life. You were taken from us way too soon, but know that the time that we had you was and always will be priceless mom. I love you.

  18. Kathy on December 24, 2023 at 9:15 am

    Mom…It’s Christmas Eve morning and it is sooo difficult for all us not having you here with us, just like every day. I love you and miss you so.

  19. Kathy on December 25, 2023 at 10:40 am

    Merry First Christmas in heaven Mom. You, like everyday will be remembered, missed and loved beyond words. I love you!

  20. Kathy on December 30, 2023 at 11:05 pm

    Mom…I am missing you so much right now that it hurts. This morning, I read some of our book. I laughed and I cried. As I was reading, it took me back to the days when we were writing it. I could so vividly remember the tone and expression of your voice. I am so glad that we were able to do that. I learned so much . We never had the chance to really finish it, but I am grateful for what we were able to do mom.
    I know that you were with me yesterday. That dime was right there in the office. When I saw it, I knew that it was you!
    Mom, as always, I do not have the words to really explain how empty I feel. I just miss and love you so much mom.
    Always in my mind and heart forever and ever.

  21. Kathy on January 1, 2024 at 12:33 am

    Happy First New Year in heaven mom You will forever me remembered, loved and missed.

  22. Kathy on January 3, 2024 at 11:24 am

    Mom…It is a new year, but everything is so different and just not complete without you mom. I know that you knew just how much you were loved and nothing has changed and it never will!

  23. Kathy on January 5, 2024 at 1:05 am

    Mom….I feel so sad mom. I keep hoping that when I wake up that this was just a nightmare and when I open my eyes, that you would be here with all of us. I write to you because I do not know what else to do. It is a connection I guess…a way of expressing myself. I love and miss you mom. You are always with me.

  24. Kathy on January 13, 2024 at 12:52 am

    Mom…Thinking of you…missing you …and forever loving you. It will almost be five months since you were taken away from us but it feels like it was yesterday. Each day that passes, I try to find you in something familiar…a song…a movie…a story. I just cannot accept your absence. I know that you are in a better place.. a place with no pain or suffering. The pain is carried within us now because you are just not here. I miss you ever so much and loved you beyond measure. Continue to guide and watch over us from heaven, just as you did when you were here. I love you mom.

  25. Kathy on January 15, 2024 at 6:57 pm

    Mom…I just miss you so much. I do not even have the words to express how much! I know that you are resting in peace without any pain but the pain of you not being here cannot be measured. I miss seeing you, talking to you, laughing with you, I JUST MISS YOU! I would do anything just to have you back here. Just a little over two short years ago we celebrated your 70th birthday. A little over one year ago we all walked in a restaurant for your 71st birthday celebration. …and here we are now. It does not seen quite fair mom. You were a good person…the best .
    Time makes nothing easier..nothing at all. I know that you are with me. I just, honestly cannot believe it mom! I can’t…
    You fought and you fought and you fought…always with a smile even on the difficult days. I know that none of us live forever but I just wish that God would have let you stay longer. You deserved that. I am angry. I just cannot accept it.
    You know that you are loved , missed, spoken of and remembered every every single day.
    I know that we will all be together again one day. Until that day comes, you will forever be in our hearts and wherever we go, you will be with us.
    I love you mom!

  26. Kathy on January 19, 2024 at 10:04 am

    Mom…Missing you so much as always. I begin the day with you in my heart and in my thoughts and end it the same way.

    I feel a little lost right now mom. I just do not know. I cannot accept thar you are not here. I try to keep you alive in all that I do. I just miss you terribly. I love you mom.

  27. Kathy on January 20, 2024 at 10:11 am

    Mom…morning time is the most difficult part of the day . I wake up and the fact that you are not here, hits me every morning. I look at that scale ( that you hated lol) and everything floods back. I am not at home this weekend, but it seems that no matter where I am or who I am with, that things are just not okay.

    It almost feels like I am in a fog. I read alot about stages of grief and all the emotions that accompany each stage. I can identify with the words, but I just cannot believe that this all happened.

    Since you were taken away from us, I have yet to be able to do many of the things that you and I did. I cannot watch, listen or eat certain movies, music or foods.

    I remember how happy you were when we were able to go out to the avenue the few times that we did. I cannot help to but imagine how you felt everyday mom. You had the passion and the want just to get up and go, but just couldn’t.

    I do remember and sometimes laugh when I think back to our daily routines ( especially the mornings). Mom, please continue to watch over and guide us all.

    One day, we will all be together again and the first person who I want to see is you.

    I love you Mom!

  28. Kathy on January 21, 2024 at 8:11 am


  29. Kathy on January 22, 2024 at 3:11 pm

    Mom…..forever in my thoughts and heart. I cannot believe that we are coming up on five months that you are gone. It feels like yesterday and yet it feels like a lifetime.

    I miss and love you so much . It is like an ache that does not go away and I cannot even properly describe it mom.

    When I sit and think about things, it is as if I just do not believe it. I new you were sick, but you always bounced back somehow. I just wish that god would have given you just a little more time.

    I remember you always saying that through your illness , that god has been good to you, but I cannot get how you must have felt out of my head.

    It just feels like everything happened so fast mom. You are and will always be missed and loved beyond measure. I love you.

  30. Kathy on January 24, 2024 at 12:44 am

    Mom….Five months without you has been simply unbearable. Feels like a big part is missing and that part will forever be you.
    Continue to watch over and guide us from above and know that you are missed and loved every day.
    I read the first 100 questions this morning lol. I have such vivid memories. I said ” mom, you can’t go anywhere until we finish this book .” You laughed and said ” I’m not going anywhere. ”
    I know that you are at peace, without pain, but the selfish part of myself wishes that you were still here with all of us.
    I talk to you and writing does help. I believe that we will all be together again one day. Mom, I love and miss you with the whole of my heart and always will.

  31. Kathy on January 27, 2024 at 12:20 am

    Mom…I love and miss you. You are always with me and in my heart and mind.

  32. Kathy on January 27, 2024 at 9:19 am

    Mom…. Thinking of you and missing you ever so much. I love you.

  33. Kathy on January 28, 2024 at 9:10 pm

    Mom….I was out this weekend and as we were channel surfing, we came across Blue Bloods. At first, I was like noooo way because I have been having a difficult time watching it since you were taken away from us. The episode was The Blue Templar! That was your favorite and so we watched it. I’d like to think that it was a little sign from you.

    Today, when I got home, I felt very heavy inside. It comes is waves which I know is normal, but so difficult at the same time.

    I look for you in everything mom. I know that you are with me and again, I find some type of comfort in knowing that, but I feel so lost.

    Every morning I still pop up and think “scale”. We are all just missing you so much mom….you have no idea. I keep hearing your words in my head. I remember those nights watching Little House or The Nanny before sleep. There has not been a Golden Girl weekend since you were taken away from us.

    Please continue to watch over all of us and guide us until we are all together again. I love you so much mom. I am not to sure about what is on the other side that awaits us when our time here comes to an end, but whatever it is, I would like to believe that you are complete…without pain…running and dancing and at peace. Love you mom.

  34. Kathy on January 29, 2024 at 9:11 pm

    Mom…. Another day without you….

    I miss you very much mom. I do not know what else to say. Everyday pretty much feels the same. There is a huge piece missing and that piece is YOU.

    I keep saying that things will be better tomorrow and when tomorrow comes, nothing is better. . not really.

    I do not think that things will ever be the same again. All the reading and talking to others who are grieving does not really help because the end game is that nothing is going to bring you back.

    They say remember the good times, hold onto the memories, etc., .but right now it is all so raw mom. Remembering brings some comfort but it also brings pain because no more memories or good times will ever be made with you.

    I know that none of us are immortal, but I just wish that God would have given you just a little more time. I was watching the news the other night and they showed us a woman who was celebrating her 102nd birthday and I had to change the channel because I felt so angry …not that she has been blessed with 102 years, but because you were not blessed with even 72 years.

    I guess that there is never enough time. I just wish that there was just a little more. I love you so mom.

  35. Kathy on February 4, 2024 at 12:22 pm

    Mom…I love and miss you so much mom.

  36. Kathy on February 11, 2024 at 8:45 pm

    Mom….always on my mind and forever in my heart. I miss you more than I can express.
    It will soon me six months that you were taken from us. It feels like an eternity and yet it feels like yesterday.
    I do not know mom.. I do not see this getting any easier. It just hurts so much. I find myself thinking about your last months and knowing and seeing what was happening, but just did want to believe it. ” I am ok” is what you woukd always say and I wanted to believe it, but I knew that you were not. Hoping and wishing that you would bounce back is how each day began.
    You are and always will be loved and missed beyond measure mom. I love you.

  37. Kathy on February 12, 2024 at 6:26 pm

    Mom….I cannot believe that we are coming up on six months since you were taken. It feels like an eternity, and yet it feels like just yesterday.
    I remember all of those mornings and your positivity. I knew what was happening and seeing the changes are so vivid mom. I was just hoping that you had it in you to bounce back just one more time.
    “I am okay, I am okay” is all that I hear in my head up until your last day. Your strength was insurmountable and your will to live was second to none. No matter how bad you were feeling, you fought.
    Things are not the same. I am not the same and I don’t think that I ever will be
    You are missed and so loved mom.
    I love you mom.

  38. Kathy on February 14, 2024 at 9:52 pm

    Mom….Happy First Valentine’s Day in heaven Mom. You are loved and missed every day.
    Aside from Christmas being your favorite day, Valentine’s Day came in at a close second because of your love for chocolate..lol..I can see you eating all that chocolate until you finished it ALL! [ especially coconut and the chocolate covered pecans]
    I just miss you more than words mom and would do anything just to be able to talk to you, hear your voice, your laughter, see you, to tell you that I love you.
    That bracelet has been on my wrist from the day that you gave it to me. I remember that we were sitting in the backyard. It will always be on my wrist. When I look at it, I can almost here the words on it.
    I love you mom!

  39. Kathy on February 18, 2024 at 9:10 am

    Mom…..Loving and missing you always mom.

  40. Kathy on February 23, 2024 at 12:08 am

    Mom…As I sit here writing this, I cannot process that you have been gone for six months today. You are loved, missed and remembered everyday mom.
    I miss you so much that i do not have the words to express just how much. ..only God knows.
    I know that you are guiding and watching over us from above, but what I would not give to have you back here with us.

    I think and I think about the journey that you took and on one hand, I feel blessed that we had you for that time. On the other hand, I am mad that you had to take that journey and that you were taken from us.
    I was always so good with my words

    mom, but this, I do not have any. Yes, we are all born to die. I understand that, but I do not want to hear it. I also do not want to hear that you are in a better place without pain. It may be true, but I wish you were back here.
    Time makes nothing about this easier or even bearable. Time simply goes on and
    your absence is profoundly felt.
    The dreams mom feel so real.
    They say that everything that happens is God’s will and that it should not be questioned, yet I sit here, six months later, and o question. It just does not seem fair. There is a very fine line between accepting what is and feeling
    angry at what is.
    I remember you saying that you were not scared and felt lucky that God was good to you. I don’t know mom. What I do know is that I love and miss you so very much mom. I am so grateful for the book. Your thoughts, your words, you.
    The rain that is coming down now are our tears.
    Love you Mom….

  41. Helen Tyska on February 28, 2024 at 2:16 pm

    Aunt Lou,
    As I sit here and think how much you are missed, it hurts.. I never realized I can write to you as I do my Dad.. I ask him to hug and give you kisses for me.. you are missed beyond eternity by all. I talk or rather text the girls often, use to every day though guess decided not to be annoying.. They do answer though not always, that is understandable, busy with the kids as you use to tell me, they mean nothing by it and I know that.though we do always talk or text..I have constantly told them I am and always will be here for them and I will, as I promised you..It is not easy with out you and my Dad, of couse Aunt Lorraine to, though you and my Dad it’s different. I listened and heard everything you both told me, even things Aunt Lorraine has said, and believe me ,I abide by those suggestions most of the time.. Your girls are as strong as you though it’s so hard for them without you.. I try to talk to them and text them always… Its very difficult missing you and being without you, though we all know your in a better place and not in pain, it doesn’t make it any easier. I can not believe it’s 6 months without you and it’s 39 months without my Dad. I am sure you had quite a reunion…Miss and love you both everyday.. it’s does not get easier though we learn to adjust. I do dream of you both and get signs, it is so good knowing your with us always.. please continue to watch over all of us, as you and my Dad know the struggles we deal with, though it’s part of life and we deal with those things, certain people don’t change and it’s not always easy. I will always remember to do what I need to just as you said.. I love you and miss you today, forever and always…Always in my heart.. love and miss you always! You favorite niece Helen❤️❤️

  42. Kathy on March 7, 2024 at 4:28 pm

    Mom…I miss and love you so much mom! You are always in my thoughts and heart and you will always be.

    Life is just not the same without you mom. I do not think that it will ever be the same.

    It’s the void of you not being here thar hurts too much. There are bad days and then there are days that are not so bad, but there are really no good ones.

    As hard as I try mom, I cannot believe thar you are gone. I just feel stuck. I feel mad and just hurting.

    Continue to watch over us from above. I love you mom.

  43. Kathy on March 10, 2024 at 11:46 pm

    Mom…Always with me. Always missing you Always loving you.

  44. Kathy on March 14, 2024 at 6:16 pm

    Mom….For some reason the number 329 keeps popping up for the last few days.
    I know that you know just how much you are missed and loved mom. I am grateful for the dreams because I know that you are with me. I just miss you beyond words mom. It is a pain like no other that I have ever felt and sometimes it is just so consuming.
    I miss and love you mom.

  45. Kathy on March 17, 2024 at 6:33 am

    Mom…. As I sit here writing this, I cannot believe that it is coming up on seven months that you are gone. It hurts so much. The emptiness is overwhelming and adjusting to life without you had been more than difficult to say the least.

    I hope that you are resting in peace, but what we would not give to have you back here with all of us mom.

    I love you and miss you beyond words. I love you mom.

  46. Kathy on March 19, 2024 at 6:24 am

    Mom…I miss you so much everyday, but today , so much more mom. I have the card and reading your words mom do bring a smile along with tears.
    I love you and miss you and wish that you were here with us. I love you.

  47. Kathy on March 19, 2024 at 6:05 pm
