Of Malden. A loving wife and mother, passed away on Sunday, December 11th, at the age of 97. Marie was born in Boston in 1925, the daughter of Simon and Angela Boudreau. She was raised in Roxbury, and attended her local parish school. She went on to work for Jordan Marsh, and was responsible for the credit card billing in their finance department. In the early 50’s, Marie married her sweetheart, Vito Maniscalco. The two lived in Boston at first before settling down in Malden in 1963. They shared 40 years of marriage together until Vito’s passing in 1991. Marie was an avid bingo player, and enjoyed nights out at Malden Catholic and St. Joseph’s for the games. Her faith was an important part of her life, and when unable to attend the Mass at St. Josephs, she found comfort in being able to watch Mass on TV. She was also a longtime avid Bruins fan, and rarely missed a game.
She is survived by her children, Gloria Maniscalco of Tewksbury, Victor Maniscalco of Malden, Anthony Maniscalco of Everett, and Gna Greener of Stafford CT, as well as her grandchildren, Mark, Jacqueline, and Eric. In addition, her husband Vito, Marie was preceded in death by her siblings, George, Claire, Jean, Dorothy, and Barbara.
A memorial Mass was held for Marie in St. Joseph’s Church, 770 Salem St, Malden on Monday, December 19th, followed by interment in Forest Dale Cemetery, Malden
