Mary was born on July 12, 1919 in Rochester, NY to Vincenzo and Carmella Bertolami. She grew up on Lexington Avenue with her parents and two older brothers, Anthony and Michael. Mary worked at Gioia Pasta Company, then was a cook for Aquinas and Edison Tech, where she was fondly known as "Ma". She married her devoted husband, Joseph Fazio on September 12, 1946 and was married for 59 years. They had three children, six granddaughters, and 12 great-grandchildren. She was so proud of her family and was very strong willed. She was a fashionista who loved her clothes, jewelry, and getting her nails and hair done. She enjoyed traveling and taking cruises. She loved shopping, cooking, going to the YMCA, being a member of the Eagles Club, playing Bingo, and spending time with family and friends. Mary was always the life of the party and always made her family laugh with her famous one-liners. She leaves behind a legacy of love and strength that can never be matched or replaced. Mary had an unforgettable smile and will be extremely missed by all.
