With heavy hearts we announce that on Wednesday, August 5, 2020, Maria Mariani passed away at the age of 91. She is now reunited in heaven with her husband, Francesco. She will be missed tremendously by her children Dominic (the late- Linda) and Elisa Zuliani (Paolo). Maria was a proud Nonna and left a beautiful legacy for her grandchildren Michael (Megan), Amanda, Luca and Stefan and her great-granddaughter Mia. She will be held dear in the hearts of her family, relatives and many friends. Until the end, Maria was a strong and resilient woman. She always put others before herself and never thought twice to be a shoulder to cry on. Before you left her house she always turned to say, “be strong”. And now I know that after all those years of her being strong for us, she was really reminding use to be strong and continue in this life without her. She will forever be in our hearts.
