I will always remember our special days when we would go out to eat after you had your nails or hair done. We had a lot of laughs while deciding where we should go to eat. Sis, I will miss those special times. I am glad you are at peace because you went through a lot over the years. I will miss you very much. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers. I love you. Your sister Lucille.

I remember clearly, Mary and my Uncle Danny were dating in the late 1950's. They would visit my Dad, Mom, Brother and I often at our house at 36 Parker St in Newington. At times, I would catch Mary and Uncle Danny kissing in the hallway of the house. She would see me and wink with that smile she had that I can never forget. She loved her family and us kids with all her heart. Her feisty spirit stays with me to this day. We love you Aunt Mary!

I think I was around four years old when Mary Zito first met me on my big wheel riding down Goff Brook Circle where she watched over the neighborhood from her seat in the bay window. For the next eight years Mary fed David and me about eight hundred pounds a week of the best Italian cooking on the street, drove us everywhere, got us out of trouble, hugged me when I fell or got hit on the head (which was surprisingly often back in the day), let us play kick ball in the cellar when it rained outside, and said encouraging things like how smart I was .
Mary’s voice, yelling “Davie!”, makes me smile every time it comes to mind, which is often. She loved David and Kenny and Dan so very much and would do anything for her family.
Mary, may your loving, fiery, endlessly caring soul rest in peace.
Love Michael

May you rest in peace Aunt Mary. You were very special to our family when my mom passed away, and you remained loyal to my dad for all these years with your phone calls and your caring, and we will never forget your kindness and love. We will miss you very much XO
Love, Gina Rossano Sciullo and family
