Marie Specchio (nee Quaresimo) passed away on Saturday, May 2, 2020, in the Regency Grande Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Dover. She was 88 years old.

Born and raised in Newark by her late parents Joseph and Susie Quaresimo, Marie lived in West Orange before moving to Toms River in 1997.

She was devoted to St. Gerard and was a member of the St. Gerard Ladies Guild. She was a very strong woman who dedicated her life to not only St. Gerard but to her entire family. Marie loved baking and cooking and Christmas was a favorite of hers.

A breast cancer survivor, it was this pandemic that took her down. Marie worked part time at Stern's in West Orange but being a wife to her husband, Michael, raising her two daughters, Susan and Michele, and spending time with her two grandchildren was her legacy.

She was the beloved wife of the late Michael Specchio, loving mother of Susan Specchio and Michele DeZao and husband Frederick, dear sister of Ann Platt and husband Abraham, and the late Madeline Cece and Anthony Quaresimo, and cherished grandmother of Brittany and Nicholas DeZao. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews and her loving furry friends.

Due to current restrictions, services will be held privately under the direction of the LaMonica Memorial Home in Livingston.

A Memorial visitation and service will be held at a later date. Kindly visit lamonicamemorialhome.com to leave fond memories and condolences to the family.

In lieu of flowers kindly make contribution to The Arthritis Foundation at 555 US-1, Iselin, NJ 08830.

My deepest heartfelt condolences to Susan and Michelle.

I never had the pleasure to meet Maria but I had the chance to know her through Susan’s eyes. I know Maria was there when you needed her most. She was your rock and best friend. She has helped Susan through some very tough times all the more guided you back to living life as you should. She seemed like a wonderful mom and I’m sure you girls have made her very proud. My thoughts are with you all.

To Susan and Michelle,
Your mom was so thankful for how much you cared for her and smiled, especially when the fur babies were on her lap. Nothing like unconditional love from them, but most importantly, you both did that for your mom and loved her unconditionally! She knows how much you cared and loved her and may you find complete peace knowing she is at rest now.
In honor of her, this Mother’s Day, celebrate her life and your family memories!
