Marie was born on November 10, 1931 in New York, NY to Mary Ann and Harry May. She graduated from Pace University. She married Anthony Castellano in 1950. Over the next 14 years, Marie devoted her life to raising her 8 children. Her children remember Marie as loving, intelligent, gracious, humble, generous, classic
beauty, adventurous with a thirst for knowledge.

After raising her children, Marie went to work as a paraprofessional in the NYC schools and then went on to
the New York City Housing Authority, where she worked her way up from a Housing Assistant, Assistant
Manager, and then became a Manager of Carver Houses. At Carver she implemented and supported a
variety of social service, health education and wellness programs during her tenure. Marie retired at the
age of 72.

Marie’s passion was her family. Her family gatherings were most cherished. Sunday dinners, holidays,
birthdays, graduations, sporting events, dance recitals, family vacations and just hanging out in the
backyard were what she lived for. She had a strong interest in culture, the arts and travel. Marie’s day to day
life included significant time on social media keeping in touch with extended family and friends and
following the stock market. Her legacy is her strong faith, devotion to family, and unending determination to
overcome challenges. She will be deeply missed by all those whose lives she touched
