Born in the Bronx to Angelina and Vincenzo Turiello on January 21, 1927, she was predeceased by her parents and three older sisters, Martha, Antoinette, and Rose.
In 1951, Marie married Philip DeCandido at Mt. Carmel Church in the Bronx. In 1973, the family moved to Yonkers, NY. Together they shared their lives until her beloved husband passed in 1979. Through the years they created a beautiful, loving, close-knit family.
