Play Tribute Movie

Marie Marino, 88, was born into everlasting life on May 7, 2021 at CHI St. Joseph’s Health Regional Hospital in Bryan, Texas. Visitation will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 12 at Memorial Funeral Chapel in Bryan with a Rosary recited at 7 p.m. at the funeral home. A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for 1 p.m. Thursday, May 13th at St Anthony’s Catholic Church in Bryan with Reverend Monsignor John McCaffrey officiating.

Marie was born September 9, 1932 in Navasota, Texas to Paul and Pauline Licce. She moved to Bryan, after marrying Pete Marino in 1952, quickly starting a family. She was a long-time member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church and a devout Catholic, praying for loved ones and saying her Rosary daily. Growing up, Marie worked in her family’s grocery store and several others throughout her life retiring from Ponzio’s. She was always a friendly and welcoming face to those around her, except in those rare moments when you beat her in a game of cards.

One of the highlights of her week was getting together with her siblings to play cards and tell stories. Most of all she enjoyed gathering with her children and their families to enjoy good food, plenty of laughter and of course more card games. These memories will be cherished by all.

She was preceded in death by her husband Pete Marino, son Steve Pete Marino, son-in-law Robert Pike, parents Paul and Pauline Licce and brother Brazos Licce.

She is survived by daughters Laura & Floyd Okonski of College Station, Teresa & Steve Everts of College Station and Jo Louise Pike of Longview; grandchildren, Tony Okonski (Angela), Nathan Okonski (Rosie), Michelle Kupper (Casey), D.J. Mazurkiewicz, Katrina Marino, Robert Muse, Gentry Garcia, and Brianna Patranella (Kevin); great-grandchildren Mary, Magdalene, Kateri, Thomas, Lily, Lawrence, Lucas, Emma, Gray, Stephanie, Gavin, Kalyn and Kylee; siblings, Phyllis Failla, Rosie Cemino, Anthony Licce, Pete Licce and Patricia Landi.

Marie’s loving grandsons will serve as pallbearers.

I can't remember a time I didn't see Aunt Marie without a smile on her face. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out. Now she's really smiling!

The other thing that comes to mind when I think of Aunt Marie are her world-famous cream puffs! Outstanding!!!

Our love and prayers are with all of you. Remember, this is all part of God's plan!

To the girls:
Laura, Teresa and JoJo there are no words to be said to take the sadness away. Your mom will always be here and there with all the memories you cherish. I have fond memories of coming over and your mom always had a smile on her face. I do believe that she was the one that taught me the correct way to eat spaghetti!!! She will be missed by all. Just remember that you all are in my prayers 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
Love, Kathy

Prayers of comfort for the family who lost a beautiful soul with a sweet nature and smile. Missed will be her cute jokes and stories. Her family, know you are not alone in your grief as we cousins, her nieces and nephews, share it with you. I believe I speak for all of us that the Licce siblings are cherished and never forgotten.
As you experience sadness let me remind you of the 23rd where in one moment He walks with us and He causes us to rest in green pastures, to the next moment where His rod and staff are WITH us, as He walks us home. There is no space between. Instantly with Him at eternal peace. Aunt Marie, I’m happy for you. Rest in peace until we meet again!

Laura and family,
Can't believe I just saw you and your mom a few weeks ago.
She was such a nice lady.
God bless her and your family.

I took care of Marie on her final day. I did not know her well, but her daughters taught me a lot about her life. Her famous sandwiches and her happy attitude made her a joy to be around I am sure. I hope I gave her peace in her final moments, and I am sorry to her daughters and entire family for her loss. I can tell she was very loved and will be missed.
