Mary Fusco

d. November 20, 2023


Mary Fusco, 88 a devoted mother, passed away peacefully on November 20, 2023, surrounded by her beloved daughters. She was born on October 3, 1935, in Newark, NJ, to the late Frank and late Philomena Cocuzza.

Mary dedicated her life to nurturing and caring for her family. After working for Prudential for a number of years, she made the decision to become a stay-at-home mom following the birth of her wonderful daughters. Her career change allowed Mary to fully embrace her role as a mother and prioritize her family above all else. Her commitment to her loved ones was unwavering.

Family was at the core of Mary's happiness and fulfillment. She treasured the time spent with her beloved family. Especially her late husband Angelo "Sonny"; and by her loving daughters Mary Ellen Kripaitis and her dear husband Bill, and Judy Supino and her dear husband Bart; her adored grandchildren Kimberly Oshust and her dear husband Toley, Erica DiMaio and her dear husband Mark, Nicole Supino and her dear friend Sam and Christine Supino and her dear friend Dylan. The joy that came from being a grandmother brought Mary immeasurable happiness.  Her granddaughters were the light of her life.  

Mary enjoyed sharing every holiday with her entire extended family, spending summer vacations at the Jersey Shore where laughter was always a big part of getting together with each other.  Outside her devotion to her family, Mary had a deep passion for visiting Atlantic City with Sonny, her daughters, sisters, and nieces. These excursions provided an opportunity for creating lasting memories that will forever be cherished by those who were fortunate enough to join her.

Her kind-hearted nature endeared her to everyone she met. Throughout her life's journey, she touched the lives of many with love and compassion.  Mary by far was an avid animal lover who treasured her cats most of all.  

In honoring Mary's memory, it is important to recognize the proudest accomplishment of her life — dedicating herself wholeheartedly to her family. The love she shared with them will continue to be felt for generations to come.

Mary Fusco will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. She leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and compassion. Mary is survived by her daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren, and a large extended family comprising of many nieces, nephews, and friends. We join together in mourning the loss of such an extraordinary individual while also celebrating the beautiful life she lived. May her soul rest in peace.

A memorial mass for Mary will be held on Saturday, February 3rd at 10:15 AM at St. Michael's Church in Union.
