Marilyn C. Romeiro

Marilyn C. (Mahon) Romeiro 86, of Station Street, passed away peacefully on June 20, 2017 after a long illness. She had been a safe deposit clerk for Citizens Bank for many years. In her retirement she worked for the Cranston Public Library. She was born in Providence on November 12, 1930 and was the daughter of the late Leo P. and Mary E.(Lewis) Mahon. She was a lifelong Cranston resident. She is survived by her two daughters, Linda Goglia of Cranston and Elizabeth Romeiro and her son-in-law Paul Napolitano of Cranston. She leaves a brother Leo P. Mahon Jr. of Warwick and several nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind her two grandsons Scott Zablocki of Coventry and Stephen Zablocki of Kentucky and four great grandchildren, Drew Zablocki, Matthew Horn, Lexi Zablocki and Christopher Zablocki as well as her dear friend of over forty years, Irene Supinski of Scituate. Besides spending time with her family, she was an avid reader and she loved gardening. When her children were younger she was involved with Bluebirds, Girl Scouts and was President of the PTW at Waterman School. She was involved with the St. Matthew Women's Club and the St. Matthew Women's Bowling League. She was a graduate of Cranston High School Class of 1948 and was Secretary of her class reunion committee as recently as their 60th class reunion. Most of all she will be remembered for her love of life and her sense of humor, a quality that she shared frequently with her family and friends. She had an amazing capacity to put a smile on people’s faces in the hope of making someone’s day a little bit better.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday at 9:00am in St. Matthew Church Cranston. Burial will follow in St. Ann Cemetery Cranston. Visitation will be held on Friday from 4:00-7:00pm in The Butterfield Chapel 500 Pontiac Avenue Cranston.

It was truly a pleasure and honor to not only take care of Marilyn, but to get to know her as well. She is missed and will forever remain in my heart! My prayer for the both of you is that you stay close to each other and don't forget to get together every month for dinner like she wanted;)

Dear Liz,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. I know the depth of this loss. Your mom was an amazing woman, and I remember meeting her and talking with her way back when in our Park View days. She was warm, friendly and very funny. I saw the wonderful relationship you had with your mom, and believe me, that kind of love transends everything, even death. Your love for each other is eternal. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Please also know that you are loved and cherished by all who know you, and we will help carry you through this very difficult time.
With much love,

Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.
