FISHKILL – Marie Romeo, 93, a local area resident for over 20 years and formerly of the Bronx, died peacefully on November 29, 2020 at the Wingate at Beacon.
Born on October 17, 1927 in the Bronx, Marie was the daughter of the late Leonard and Grace (Roberto) Lombardo. She worked as a secretary for Flavormatic Industries in Wappingers Falls, NY until her retirement.
In 1949, Marie married the love of her life, Anthony Romeo, at Immaculate Conception in the Bronx. He predeceased her in 2015. They were deeply religious and active members of St. Mary, Mother of the Church, in Fishkill. Marie was an avid reader and after Anthony passed, she enjoyed getting together to play cards and bingo with her friends at Lexington Club where she resided prior to Wingate.
More than anything, she loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Marie is survived by her sons, Anthony Jr. (Bonnie) of Brooklyn, Richard (Janet) of Wappingers Falls and Steven of Portland, OR; her grandsons, Mark (Laura), Eric (KayLyn) and Neil; her great-grandchildren, Evelyn and Levi; and her twin sister, Gloria Montenero. Marie is also survived by many other special family members and friends who she loved deeply.
