Marie T Saporita

April 7, 1929March 20, 2021

Marie Theresa Saporita, age 91, passed away on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at Oakmont Assisted Living, a caring and loving community in Las Vegas. She was born in Atlantic City, NJ April 7, 1929 to Rocco and Julia (Biondo) Delesantro, and was the younger sister to Joseph Delesantro.

In the mid-1950’s, Marie met her husband of 62 years, Matthew John Saporita, on the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. A musician, Matthew played big band concerts across the country and Marie and her cousin Dottie loved to dance the night away. In 1959, Marie, and Susan flew to Las Vegas, NV where Matthew and Marie were married and lived out the rest of their days. In her younger years, Marie enjoyed bowling. She traveled to other states for many different tournaments, making friends along the way. For years, Marie was a Bingo room supervisor at the Holiday Inn. Upon retiring, Marie kept Bingo in her life. She and her best friend, Alberta, would travel to California for tournaments on the reservation in Hemet. She could chat it up with her parlor friends while handling multiple cards without skipping a beat! Thursdays were her big day out. For years she would get her hair done, go out to eat, and be ready for the 7:00 and 9:00 PM Bingo sessions at Boulder Station.

Marie is survived by daughter, Susan Place, grandchildren Michele Casella, Shawn, Dewey, Katie Place, and Lori Bertsch, great grandchildren, Julianna, Aidan, Macy, Rocco, and Shaylin, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Joe, husband, Matthew, son Matthew Jr. daughter Lisa and grandson Donnie.

Marie will be remembered as a strong, witty, beautiful shining light and her family welcomes those who loved her to the viewing and celebration of life on Monday, April 12, 4:30-8:30 PM. The funeral and burial will follow on April 13, 2:00 PM, both to be held at Palm Mortuary, 7600 S. Eastern Avenue, Las Vegas, NV 89123. Donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (a charity she supported for many years) can be made in lieu of flowers to: Rest in Heaven, Marie.
