Marie Adeline Raney
September 10, 1937 – September 17, 2019
On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, Marie Adeline O'Brien Raney of Orlando, Florida—loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother—passed into the hands of the Lord at the age of 82. She was survived by her husband Walter, daughter AnnMarie, son-in-law Al, and son Thomas. She also left behind her grandson Kyle, daughter-in-law Amie, two granddaughters Harley and Raven and five great grandchildren Nate, Noah, Liam, Lukas, and Matthew.
Marie was born September 10, 1937 to Mary Elizabeth and Joseph O’Brien and raised in Rockville Center, New York with older brother Joseph, and two older sisters Katherine and Betty. She was a devout Catholic and a parishioner of Saints Peter and Paul Catholic church. She was an avid bowler and a girl scout troop leader. She enjoyed traveling the world over, and she especially loved all locations with a Disney theme park. When she wasn't taking in exotic locales, one would often find her knitting and sewing. Indeed, Marie would knit Christmas stockings for every new member of our family and for our friends. She was also a skilled stuffed animal doctor with her needle and thread.
She met her husband, of 57 years, Walter, in 1954. They lived in Lanoka Harbor, New Jersey for 28 years before retiring to their home in Orlando, Florida, near their best friends Robert and Cleora Johnson.
Never one to be off her feet for too long, Marie always took care of her dogs and cats, as well as numerous rescue cats and a family of raccoons. She also made sure to tend her garden. She absolutely adored her roses.
Still, no one can deny that her greatest joy was loving and supporting her family. Though forever in our hearts, she will be deeply missed.

Walter, Ann, Tom and Family
Sending my deepest sympathy for the loss of Marie. So many years have passed since I last saw Marie. I will always remember the wonderful, fun times that I spent in your home as a child growing up in Lanoka Harbor. “Mrs Raney”, as I always called her, was so kind to me and my family. I will always cherish those memories.
Wishing you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Aunt Marie will always hold a spot in our hearts especially at Christmas as we hang up our stockings made with love by her hands. We will continue to pray for you that the Lord holds you closely.
May the choirs of angels come to greet her and lead her to Paradise.

Uncle Walt, Thomas, and AnnMarie and family,
We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Marie. She was always such a joyful presence. She and Uncle Walt were champion card players when they last visited Ohio! We had such a lovely time trying to outsmart them. Aunt Marie always had a smile on her face and was SOOOOO giving. We will ALWAYS treasure her beautiful Christmas stockings made with so much love and care.
Hugs and kisses to you all. Love,
Rose (O'Brien), Paul, Gabriel, Alina, Dominic, Damien, and Alina
