Marie Cannetti

Marie D. Cannetti, a resident of Rochelle Park, New Jersey and originally from the Bronx, departed us on January 12, 2021 peacefully with her family by her side.

She was born in the Bronx on July 1, 1936 to the late Charles and Rose (Salvatore) Cannetti. Marie is survived by her three children, Rosemarie, Tony and Michael; her two daughters-in-law, Patricia and Marianne; six grandchildren, Anthony, Amber, Angelo, Frankie, Alana and Olivia; and three great-grandchildren William, Victoria and Jaxon; and Lola, the family pet- where the fun and love was mutual.

The family will be present on Friday, January 15 from 3–9pm at Joseph A. Lucchese Funeral Home, 726 Morris Park Avenue, Bronx. Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, January 16 at 10am at St. Dominic’s Church, 1739 Unionport Road, Bronx. Interment will follow at Woodlawn Cemetery, East 233rd Street and Webster Avenue, Bronx.

From The Family:
They say nobody loves you like your mother and that is true of our mother.

We shall all remember the fond memories of growing up in our “country house” in Middletown, NY as mom settled in her formidable years where she worked for the local telephone company, retired and worked another 11 years in a beauty salon!! Mother forged many solid relationships in Middletown, centered around her favorite five-letter word. B I N G O. Nobody loved B I N G O more than mom. She played and worked bingo for decades and decades, always being the only un-paid volunteer to work the B I N G O halls of Middletown and Goshen. B I N G O will surely miss you mom.

We are so lucky to have had 84 fun years of playing games and cards and you teaching all your kids, grandkids, family and friends how to play “May I”. Thank you for always being the life of the party and bringing the fun wherever you went, dancing through the night.

Who could forget the time I was in line at Hills Supermarket at the age of 13 when I overheard a conversation by 2 women I did not know describing a “lovely” lady who was so kind and wonderful in helping them in the jewelry and lingerie departments of EJ Korvettes. I cried when they said her name and I realized it was my mother they were talking about. That was our mother: kind, caring and helpful.

You will be missed GG, by all your family and friends, and you will always be in our hearts.

Rest in peace mother and say hello to grandma, grandpa and your 2 brothers.

We love you mommy!!

    We will hold on to the memories and the fun times.
    Love you and miss you so much.

    Love, Ken, Rosemarie, and Tiffany ✝️✝️

    The OLMC Bingo Family has lost a great, great person. Marie was with us since the beginning and helped make our BINGO program successful. We will miss her calling out those BINOG numbers! Rest In Peace Marie.

    The best lady in the world. I am fortunate to be a part of the Cannetti family. They all have the same love of life along with a ray of sunshine surrounding them always. Marie immediately brightened any room she entered and made life more special. I’m so glad we got to spend time together this summer. Even though it was harder for her to get around you would’ve never known it by her smile, her attitude and her warmth. Love you and miss you.

    I was so sad to hear that God Called you home Marie. I worked with her for many years at the phone co. but she was more to me than just a co worker she was my friend. She always had a Smile & a Listening ear & Compassion for everyone not to mention a Kind Loving Way about Her. My Condolences to her Family whom I know she Loved so. Heaven has gained an Angel/Bingo Queen,, & I will cherish all Our Memories Forever in My Heart. I Love & Miss You My Friend.. xoxo Marti

    I am so very sorry to hear this sad news.
    It was so good getting to know you at our weekly Thursday Bingo nights in Maywood. You always made me laugh. I was really looking forward to seeing you again when Bingo resumed. I will miss you at Bingo, but I know you’ll be there in spirit.

    I will sing to you your lullaby one last time:

    You’re the song that the tree sings when the wind blows
    You’re aflower, you’re a river , you’re a rainbow
    I loved you the first time I saw you
    And I always will love you, Marie♥️
    Rest peacefully,
