Maria “Marie” Cancemi, of Brooklyn, NY, who most recently resided in St Petersburg, FL,
passed away peacefully in her sleep on November 19, 2019. Her parents, Gaetano
“Thomas” Bongiorno and Catherine Cincotta Bongiorno, along with her siblings, Rose,
Steven, John and Salvatore, preceded her. Marie is survived by her loving husband, Bob,
her two daughters, Caren and Laurie, and her grandchildren, Taylor, Falyn, Alexa, Michael
and Rachel. Marie graduated from Erasmus High School. She retired from the New York
Telephone Company after 35 years and went on to work as a Real Estate Agent for many
years. Marie was probably the strongest, most independent woman most people have ever
met. She loved children, the NY Mets, to dance, play cards and eat Italian food! People were
always delighted by her spunk and her beautifully silly and spirited sense of humor. She will
be forever loved, remembered and missed by her family and friends who know she is finally
at peace in heaven where her soul and body will be reunited for eternal life with God.
