Mary Ruffini Sportelli

March 25, 1931-March 15, 2015

Mary Sportelli passed away on Sunday, March 15, 2015 at Middletown Rehabilitation and Health Care Center.

The daughter of the late Guiseppe and Benvenuta (DiMonte) Ruffini, she was born on March 25, 1931 in Astoria, Queens, New York. Mary was the youngest child and was predeceased by her brothers, Peter, Frank, Daniel and Valdo. Mary married Anthony Sportelli on January 23, 1954, who predeceased her in 2012 after 59 years of marriage.

She is survived by her daughter, Louisa LoCascio, son-in-law Stephen Locascio; grandchildren Stacey and Justin LoCascio, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Mom was more than just a mother to her daughter, she was her loving friend. She loved her grandchildren with all her heart and always had M&Ms, Kit-Kats and Pizzelles for them when she was still at her home. She was a great cook and baker. Her Sunday dinners of roast pork, macaroni and gravy were the best. Her brother Val loved her raisin cake.

Mary’s family would like to give a special thank you to Jennifer Sternberger and the staff of Unit 4 at MiddletownRehab, who all took such great care of her. She especially loved her visits from “Mr. Parker”, the resident cat, and her Sunday afternoon ice cream.
