Luisi, Mary J. (Cannata), 94 on April 18, 2020 of Wayne, NJ. Born in San Antonio Texas she settled in Paterson as a child and married her beloved husband Will where she lived on 27th street until moving to Wayne 20 years ago. Before her retirement she was a seamstress for Manhattan Shirt on River St. and eventually Lady Manhattan where she produced โ€œFirstโ€ pre-production apparel for modeling in NYC. Mary was a devout parishioner of Our Lady of the Valley RC Church in Wayne. She was a lover of dolls, especially angels, and enjoyed sewing, shopping, reading, and watching soap operas, but her greatest joy was spending time with her family. One of her favorite past times was playing UNO with her siblings; and laughing of course.
Mary was the devoted wife of the late William M. Luisi who she lost at the early age of 54 in 1979 but stayed true until the end and will now be reunited and interred together at last. Beloved mother of Willian D. Luisi and his wife Leonie of Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Yolanda Battaglia and her husband Joseph of North Haledon. Loving grandmother to Dana, Christopher, Jennifer, William and Salvator. Great grandmother of Giovanna, Cristiano, Ava, Andrew and Alex. Also survived by her sisters Edith Amerante and Angel Mendillo.
Arrangements by the Vander Plaat โ€“ Vermeulen Memorial Home, 530 High Mountain Road, Franklin Lakes, NJ 07417. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all services will be held privately by the family. Any future services will be posted at a later date.

Dear Lonnie, Bill and families,
We"re so sorry for your loss. We saw Aunt Mary frequently when our mom was alive. She was always so much fun. She spent an occasional holiday with us. She would bring her homemade cookies or her Italian Easter bread. She was always smiling. She will be missed, but I know how much she wanted to be reunited with Uncle Will.

We"ll keep you in our prayers,
Marie & Rick

Mary was my wife's sister , Angel, and she went every where with us. She was a widow since 1978 but she felt no one could ever take Bill,s place. She went with us many places, family restaurants, Wildwood, we played "Uno" often, and she always spent "Christmas Eve" at our house and stayed the night. She was always pleasant and never complained of anything and we will miss her very much. Any holiday she didn't spend with her daughter, "Lonnie" she would come with us. She was a member of our church and attended mass regularly. I'm sure she is with her "Bill" now and happier than ever. We will miss her very much and she will be in our prayers forever.

I was blessed to have Aunt Mary for my Godmother. She was always happy & smiling. My husband & I watch our wedding video every year & I love seeing her on it asking the camera guy to make her look skinny as she laughed. She will truly be missed. ๐Ÿ’œ Praying for your family...Love, Cousin Michelle (Catalioto)

Lonnie, Billy and family I am so sorry for your loss. I am grateful for the all the time I got to spend with my Godmother Mary these past few months. She still had the same positive fun upbeat personality I remember from my childhood. I am so glad of the time and companionship she and my mom got to share.

Lonnie, I am so sorry for your loss, I am so happy for the time we got to spend with Aunt Mary these last few months . She was so happy to be with mom and dad . When we visited it felt like old times and being with the family. One day she started to sing one of Doris Days songs 'What ever will be will be" we cried tears of happiness because she said she was with her little sister Edith again . I will miss her so. My prayers are with you all. Cousin Jeanne
