Obituary for Marie E Bomba (Petraccone)

Marie E  Bomba (Petraccone)
BARRE- Marie E. Bomba, 93, passed away on Friday, February 19, 2016, surrounded by her loving family.

She is survived by a daughter, Mary (Bomba) Danenberg, and her husband, Steven; a son, John Bomba, and his wife, Diane; 4 grandchildren: Amy (Danenberg) King and her husband Steven, Michael Danenberg and his wife Lindsay, Ann (Bomba) Diaz and her husband Anthony, and Jane Bomba; 3 great-grandchildren: Christopher and Caroline King, and Alex Diaz; several nieces & nephews. She was predeceased this year by her beloved husband, Stanley; a sister, Leanora (Petraccone) Diotalevi, and brothers, Salvatore and Joseph Petraccone.She was born in South Barre, daughter of the late Antonio Petraccone and Angelina (Marsella) Petraccone.

Marie was employed for 14 years for Doeskin Paper Mills in Wheelwright but then devoted most of her life to caring for her family. Her vision for her children's lives far surpassed her own experience of growing up in the “Italian section” during the Great Depression. She was particularly devoted to providing them an excellent education. As her family grew, her love and devotion expanded to include grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who were her greatest joy in life. She was a superb baker, and her family will always remember her for her Christmas cookies, apple cake, perfect fruit pies, and, especially, “Grandma's pizza.”

The funeral Mass for Marie will be held on Wednesday, February 24,2016 at 10:00AM in St. Thomas A Becket Church Vernon Ave. South Barre. Calling hours will be held on Tuesday from 5-7 pm in Pillsbury Funeral Home, 96 South Barre Rd, Barre. Burial will be in St. Joseph's Cemetery.
