Mary is known as our "people person" Horizons resident here at Oaks at Hampton! She was born in Manhattan, New York in 1940, but was raised in the Bronx. Her parents immigrated here from Italy, so she speaks fluent Italian and is very proud of her heritage.
During her childhood, she helped out in her parent’s grocery store/delicatessen. Here she learned her love of food and became a fantastic cook. Mary has four children, a son - Michael, and three daughters - Gina, Suzette, and Corinne. She raised her four children as a single parent doing a fantastic job. Her children have blessed her with five grandchildren - Robert, Erica, Brandi, Gage, and Gabriella. She is a wonderful "Nonna" to her grandchildren and is happiest when she is with them.
Mary worked very hard in various jobs, including managing a restaurant where both customers and staff loved her. She also sang and performed in an all-female singing group called "The Sweet Adelines" for fun. It's clear to us she is a "people person," and has always made lots of smiles everywhere she goes.
