Marie J. BacigalupiFebruary 3, 1923 ~ September 25, 2017 (age 94)
BACIGALUPI, Marie Josephine, 94, of Little Silver, left us peacefully on Monday, September 25, 2017. Beloved daughter, sister, aunt and friend, Marie had a sharp wit, was full of fun, and made everyone feel special and important and most of all, loved.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Josephine and John Bacigalupi, Sr., and brothers John Jr., Charles and Lawrence, and her best friends Lee Hawkins and Barbara Turner. She is survived by her brother Joseph (Carolyn) and too many nieces and nephews to list, all of whom loved her dearly and will miss her greatly.
Marie, known as Tootie by all of her family and close friends, was born on February 3, 1923 in Park Ridge, NJ, and then lived in Cranford, NJ before settling in Little Silver in the early 1940’s. As a young woman, she worked at Fort Hancock on Sandy Hook, at The Bendix Corporation during WWII, and then she worked over 30 years at JCP&L, retiring in 1983. Almost as much as her large family, she loved cooking, gardening, reading, watching the news and sports, the beach, her house in FL, fireworks, playing in the snow and all of her dogs.
Her family will receive friends from 4-7:00 pm Friday, September 29th at John E. Day Funeral Home, 85 Riverside Avenue, Red Bank. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 9:15 am on Saturday, September 30th at Church of the Nativity, 180 Ridge Road, Fair Haven. Interment to follow at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Middletown.
