Marguerite DeCarlo, 90, of Greencastle and formerly of Connecticut, passed away on Sunday, July 14, 2013.
She was born on June 27, 1923 in New Haven, Conn., to Frank Muti and Rose Di Nardo Muti.
Mrs. DeCarlo had worked as a secretary for many years, but primarily she was a homemaker. Her passions in life were caring for her family, cooking enormous Italian dinners and playing piano. She had a remarkable ear for music and entertained friends and family throughout her life with lively renditions of pop standards.
She was preceded in death by her parents brother Robert Muti and two sisters Mary Muti and Louise DeLaurentis.
Surviving are her husband of 65 years, Victor DeCarlo; two sons, Victor DeCarlo and wife Pat Newman of Greencastle and Michael DeCarlo and wife Tracy of Stratford, Conn.; six grandchildren, Megan Polydoris and husband Daniel, Thomas DeCarlo, Taylor DeCarlo, Chelsea DeCarlo, Amelia DeCarlo and Ryan DeCarlo and wife Johna; and two great-grandchildren, Sharon DeCarlo and Lucas Polydoris.
Memorials in Mrs. DeCarlo's name may be directed to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
