Margaret Carpinelli, "Marge" (nee DeFabio) age 82, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on November 5.
Beloved wife of Ralph Carpinelli (deceased). Loving Mother of Michael Carpinelli, John James (wife Ghazaleh) and Deanna Leonti. Cherished grandmother of Leanne Carpinelli, Laura James-Pero (husband Adam Pero) and Julianne James. Dearest Daughter of Louis and Josephine (nee Sabette) DeFabio (both deceased). Dear Sister of the following deceased: Anthony "Butch" De Fabio, (wife Marie) Martin DeFabio, Katherine DiGravio (husband John) and Helen Delguyd. Marge was also a loving Grandmother, devoting much of her time to her beloved grandchildren. Aunt, Great Aunt and Great-Great Aunt of many.
As a child, Marge discovered she was blessed as an artist, inspiring her to capture observations throughout her lifetime. This creativity overflowed leading her to become a licensed beautician and make-up artist in the late 60's. She joyfully used this gift to help the needy.
In 1983, Marge's spirit of adventure and creativity lead her to Las Vegas, where she worked side-by-side with top chefs of the world.
Once there, Marge became a member of the Discalced Carmelite Secular Community of St. Bridgets', devoting her spare time to do volunteer work.
"Auntie Margie" was a mentor, and caring Aunt, directing and inspiring them to reach for the stars, with a willingness to help whenever needed. Marge was a caretaker who loved her pets with a passion. That gift would come full circle, as her children, especially her loving daughter, would care for her in her later years.
