Maria "Marie" Cancemi, of Brooklyn, New York, 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.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
