Obituary

Marianne Munnelly was born September 13, 1935 to Lawrence and Mary Pagnoni. She was the oldest of 5 children. She and her siblings Elaine, Carol,
Loretta and Larry were raised in a 2 bedroom apartment by their very loving parents Marianne attended PS 222, where, at the age of 7, she met her best friend, Aileen O'Neill-Radigan who remained a dear friend forever.
Marianne attended St. Saviour High School, which she loved. While in high school, she met John Munnelly while she was on a date with someone else at the movie theatre where John worked. After high school she worked as a key punch operator. She and John got married December 29, 1957. Their first child, Christine was born the following November and Noreen was born on their 2nd anniversary. Marianne worked part time at A&S while her girls were young, but rumor has it that she spent more then she earned. She moved to Coleman Street in 1965. Mark was born 4 days after the move.
Marianne was a full-time mom. She went on class trips, worked with Girl Scouts and even a cookie mother. She loved to do crafts, she sewed clothing for her children and their dolls and made costumes, she baked and decorated fantastic cakes. Marianne made great friends on Coleman Street and became a member of the St Thomas Aquinas Rosary Society. She remained active with them until the end and made many lifelong friends.
In 1974, Mark was diagnosed with cancer and Marianne took on his health care battle. She drove into Manhattan to various hospitals and got him where he needed to go. In 1976, Aileen Mary came onto the scene. She was the bonus baby. Marianne juggled life with a sick pre-teen and a new baby. She did it with grace.
In 1979, we lost Mark, a sorrow that never left her. Marianne continued to be a wonderful mother and wife. She and John would often go away for events connected to his military career. She liked meeting people and would truly listen to their stories.
Marianne was loyal and true to her friends and family. As her friends started having grandchildren, she would write their birthdays on her calendar, with their ages. She sent out many, many cards. As her nieces and nephews grew, she sent cards and gifts, which carried on for 3 generations.
Marianne was a avid reader and could read a novel in a day or two. She loved British mysteries, criminal investigation series and Hallmark movies. She did not like sit-coms. Marianne had a great memory and would get phone calls from people trying to remember "Who the guy in the movie they saw" was. Marianne loved Atlantic City and was always thrilled when she could get there. Noreen was her willing partner in gambling.
In 2006, she became a Nana when Aileen and Pete got married. She loved Peter and Emily from the first moment she met them. She got her bonus Nana moment in January of this year, when John Charles "Jack" arrived.
Marianne left us sooner than we thought, and she will be missed and remembered with a lot of love. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to St John's Bread and Life, St Jude's Hospital or Shriner's Hospital for Children
