Maria dedicated over 20 years of service as a bookkeeper at Crescent Bingo Hall. A woman of many passions, Maria's zest for life was evident in her love for trips to Atlantic City and playing the lottery. She found joy in the thrill of chances. However, her true jackpot was her family, with whom she loved to spend time. Maria's kitchen was the heart of her home, where she poured love into her cooking, gathering her family for meals and would not hesitate to chase you with the wooden spoon if needed. Maria was very proud of her Italian heritage, she had the time of her life when her two daughters took her on a trip to Italy last year.
Always on the go, her energy was infectious, and her desire to live life to the fullest inspired those around her. Maria was a very strong willed woman and took great pleasure in her role as a grandmother and great-grandmother, cherishing every moment she spent with her grandchildren and great-granddaughter. The memories created during these precious times will be treasured by her family forever.
The warmth of her love and the brightness of her spirit will continue to shine in the hearts of her family and friends.
A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. Maria Carattini's family will hold her memory very close to their hearts.
