She married the love of her life Frank Santibianchi on August 30th 1953. It was a strong union that lasted until his passing on April 26th, 2005. Mary loved to bake and was an excellent cook. She enjoyed doing crafts and enjoyed the time spent with her family and close friends. Mary was a very loving and social person. She will be fondly remembered and deeply missed by those who were fortunate enough to have known her. Mary was blessed to have a strong family support. Lori, Richard, and Michael were able to work together to keep her at home until the end. A special thank you to her grandson Michael for all that he did to help take care of Mary.
Mary is survived by her daughter Loretta (Richard) Gross; her grandson Michael DiPasquale. Many more loving nieces, nephews, and cousins also survive. Mary is predeceased by beloved husband Frank; her parents, Michael and Theresa DiCaprio; and her brothers Ralph and Lee DiCaprio.
