Mary Valerio Napoli passed away on February 3, 2020, predeceased by her husband Anthony “Nippy” Napoli.
Mary was a strong and loving woman who to the end stayed true to herself. Her passing was marked by her same stoic presence. She was always clear, focused and determined, offering nurturing guidance. Mary and Nippy taught their children how to love fully, work intensely and approach each new day as a new one. She will be missed by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
As an avid and enthusiastic bridge player, and highly social and loving, Mary maintained lifelong relationships with siblings, neighbors and fellow bridge players. Playing cards was by far her favorite pastime she carried through her entire life.
