MARY MILAZZO COVIELLO died peacefully in Boca Raton, Florida on October 2, 2019, 10 days shy of her 98th birthday. Originally from Uniontown, Pennsylvania, Mary lived in Tampa, Florida since 1974. She was preceded in death by her husband, Nicholas Coviello, and her brother, Peter Milazzo. She is survived by her loving daughter, Carol Malzone, of Delray Beach, Florida; her adored granddaughters, Alexa Malzone of Boston, Massachusetts and Marisa Malzone Cuny, of Louisville, Colorado; grandchildren Luke and Raya Cuny; and her brother-in-law, Bill Coviello, of Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews, including Donna Cathie of Wexford, Pennsylvania; Debbie Dragone of Uniontown, Pa; Lisa Gojkovich and Nina Mascio of Pittsburgh, Pa; and her nephew and godson Richard Siegman of Washington DC.

Recognized by all for her sense of style (no matter the weather), her crossword puzzle and Jeopardy obsessions, an indomitable strength that seemed to be eternal, and her unparalleled coconut cream pies, she will be missed by her loving family for her unconditional support and generosity throughout her many years.

Flowers will be accept or memorial donations may be made to Moffit Cancer Center in Mary's name.

To Carol and family. My memories of Mary include her great sense of style and sophistication. I always enjoyed listening to her speak of her growing up with Pete and my Dad, Joseph. They were more like siblings rather than uncle, nephew and niece. May the many happy memories of her help sustain you through this difficult time.
I'll be thinking of you on the 12th. Happy Birthday in heaven, Mary.
Your cugina, Mara Jo

Carissima Carol,
sono vicina a Te e alla Tua famiglia in questo doloroso momento.
Purtroppo la vita è questa e sono felice che la Tua mamma Ti sia rimasta vicina per così tanto tempo e che Tu abbia avuto la possibilità fino ad oggi di dividere con Lei i momenti felici della vita, momenti che porterai sempre con Te e che nessuno potrà portarti via.
Ti abbraccio fortissimo e Ti porgo le mie più sentite condoglianze.
Un bacio.

Carol, we were so saddened to hear about Mary. So many memories.....her impeccable style, her independence, her laugh when she told a funny story. On Saturday nights when she stayed with the girls and she would still be up waiting for us, no matter what time.
Above all her love and admiration for you and the girls.
She was special and I’m happy to have known her.
