Marie DeLeonardis, 92, a lifelong resident of Hoboken, entered into eternal rest on the morning of June 8th, 2023 surrounded by family.

Marie attended Our Lady of Grace School and St. Michael’s High School and was a member of St. Ann’s Parish. She retired from her job at AT&T after 38 years of service and continued to sing the praises of AT&T until the very end. In her spare time, Marie travelled the world, visiting many countries and many states in the United States.  She loved people, singing, dancing, enjoying delicious Italian pastry and food, attending Mass, and going for her many daily walks all around her beloved hometown of Hoboken.

Marie was predeceased by her parents Marcia (nee Rotondella) and Vito DeLeonardis, as well as her siblings Sr. Gertrude, Anthony, Frank, Fr. Gerard, and Anna (Grasso). She is survived by many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and even a few great-great nieces and nephews. Marie is one of those truly special aunts who will be forever missed and always remembered
