Marion Carroll Lamattina passed away peacefully after a long illness. She was 93 years old. Born in Gouverneur, NY, a small town near the Canadian border, on August 5, 1926, she was one of seven children born to Claire and Edward Carroll. Marion always looked up to her many siblings and remained close to them her entire life. Her memories of her early life were always vivid and cherished.

A graduate of Gouverneur High School, Marion matriculated at SUNY Canton graduating with a degree in Dietetics followed by an internship as a Pediatric Dietician at New Rochelle Hospital. She was then offered and accepted a permanent position due to her stellar performance and compassionate nutritional care of children. Embracing her new downstate community, Marion became active in The Catholic Club where she met the love of her life, Silvio Lamattina, a WWII Naval Veteran and Hospital Administrator. They had much in common. In addition to health care and religion, both were from large, close knit families. They were married on April 7, 1956 at St. James Church in Gouverneur. Within a few years, they moved to White Plains where they raised their daughter, Teresa and were communicants of Our Lady of Sorrows Church. Marion returned to the workforce when her daughter went to school and enjoyed 32 wonderful years as the Food Service Manager of Our Lady of Good Counsel Academy in White Plains. She also used her dietary and managerial skills and huge heart to host huge family gatherings through the years.

Marion overcame many challenges in life including a Rare Eye Disorder with determination, tenacity, faith and the help of her loving family. She was visually impaired and therefore could never drive but she maintained her precious and hard-won independence by walking a fierce mile and navigating every bus route with ease. She was unstoppable and unflappable.

She loved walking, travelling, Cape Cod and family time. She was a patriotic American, proud of her Irish Heritage and a devout Catholic. She was devoted to her daughter, beloved son-in-law Richard Berry and adored grandchildren Dylan and Jessica Berry. She loved her many nieces and nephews and always set an excellent example. She was generous, interested in everyone and everything and always ready to set out on an adventure. Because of her visual impairment, she always said, “you go first, I’ll follow you.” Her parents, siblings, and devoted husband all went first, and she has now followed, just as she wanted.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a Mass in celebration of her life will be planned at a later date, most likely in late summer, followed by a family gathering abundant in love and good memories.
