Mary I. (Picardi) Carrozza

April 7th, 2014

Mary I. (Picardi) Carrozza, age 69, of Wilmington, died peacefully with her family at her side on April 7, 2014, after a long battle with cancer. 

Mary was the beloved wife of Gerard A. Carrozza, devoted mother of Matthew D. Carrozza and his wife Jilliane and Dean J. Carrozza all of Wilmington, cherished daughter of the late Generoso and Rosina Picardi, dear sister of Frances Marotta and her husband Albert of Wilmington, Roseanne Fuller and her husband Robert of Tewksbury, and the late John Picardi formerly of MA and NY, sister-in-law of Maria Morgan of Medford.  Mary is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Mary was a dedicated and patient friend, sister, mother and wife.  Her beauty was ageless and her smile unfailing. Mary was known for her quick wit and meticulous style of organization.  She kept those around her healthy, happy and always on schedule.  Mary enjoyed the simple pleasures in life, such as fishing and day trips solely around dipping her feet in the ocean.  She never longed for anything more than to be around those she loved.

Family and friends will gather at the Nichols Funeral Home, 187 Middlesex Ave. (Rte. 62), Wilmington on Friday, April 11th at 9:00 a.m. followed by a Mass of Christian Burial in St. Dorothy’s Church, Main Street (Rte. 38), Wilmington at 10:00 a.m.  Interment will follow in Wildwood Cemetery, Wilmington.  Visiting hours will be held at the Funeral Home on Thursday, April 10th from 4:00-8:00 p.m. 

Donations in Mary’s memory may be made to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Attn: Donor Services, P. O. Box 650309, Dallas, TX  75265-0309.

    Mary – Your legacy continues at Raytheon where you mothered so many of us for so many years – When we say Mary here – many thoughts come to mind – caring, friendly, supportive, passionate, and somone who spoke her mind.
    For all of us, today is one we all knew would unfortunately come. I try to embrace it with loving memories and thoughts you certainly are wrapped in the blessed mother’s arms. Joy, peace and health are restored back to you and your pains and woes have all subsided. We mourn as we are selfish and want to enjoy your company again. My heart is sad, but no one can take my memory of your friendship and motherhood to me away. Rest easy Mary – watch over us from heaven. The Lord knows we need you. Thank you for being you….My sincerest sympathy to Gerard (i love you), Matt, Jill, and Dean… is in heaven and she loved you all with her entire heart.
    Godspeed Mary….xoxo

    Unfortunately, my memory for Mary wasn’t published in her guest book last night.

    Gerry, Matt, Dean and Jillian:

    Mary was a dear and loving friend whom I talked to on the phone weekly, along with visiting her in the hospital and rehab at least once a week or every other week. I will miss her terribly but I know shes another angel in heaven and no longer suffering which means alot. She always said what was on her mind she was an honest and caring person. and if she was your friend she was just that. Mary you’ll always be in my thoughts and my memories will never be forgotten, you were loved dearly. My prayers and love to all of you., she’ll be so missed. I know I’ll have to stop myself from picking up the phone.

    I think of Mary every Christmas when I hang up the ornament she gifted to my first born son Erik. “Babies 1st Christmas” has been part of our family decorating tradition for 23 years. My sincerest sympathy to her loved ones for their loss. I enjoyed working with Mary at Raytheon and know she will be truly missed by all.
