Marie C. D'Amore (Pizzichello)
Services and Interment will be held privately
Marie C D’Amore, 99 years old, of Richboro, PA died from heightened dementia on May 18th 2020 at the home of Debbe Hoelper, her daughter who lovingly cared for her during her days of in-home hospice. Marie is pre-deceased by her devoted husband of over 50 years Lawrence D’Amore who was a veteran of World War II, and by her sister, Margaret DiNubile. Marie was born in Philadelphia to Catherine Lyons Lacovara and Frank Pizzichello. She later lived in Newtown, PA and then spent her final years living with her daughter Debbe Hoelper in Richboro, PA. This picture of Marie is from a family gathering in August of 2019.
Marie is a member of St. Bede Church in Holland and a graduate of St. Monica’s elementary school and of Hallahan High School in Philadelphia. After graduation she worked for the government through World War II and the Vietnam War in the fiscal and supply office; she also worked in the government transportation section, and for the Internal Revenue Service.
Marie loved being surrounded by family. She grew up with her two sisters and lots of relatives nearby. She always wanted a family of her own and enjoyed doing things with her daughters and then with their families and with her grand and great-grandchildren. There were always dinners and parties to attend at her house, and summer family time at the seashore. She travelled with both daughters through parts of the United States, Canada, and Europe. Marie also enjoyed reading good books, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and magazines about Hollywood celebrities and the British Royals. Growing violets, roses, irises; eating vanilla ice cream; watching old movies; and having designer handbags, shoes and suits were her other loves.
She is survived by her sister, Rose DeGregorio, her daughters Kathleen Buehler and Debbe Hoelper; grandchildren Kate Hart, Don Buehler, Jr., Magge Hoelper, Josh Hoelper and Brittany Hoelper; great-grandchildren Christine and Sarah Buehler, and Liliana Hart. Also surviving her is nephew and godson Gary DeGregorio, and cousins Rosemarie Stolfo and Anthony Inverso.
The family wants to thank all of Marie’s caregivers that have attended to her before entering hospice, and to sincerely thank the incredibly supportive staff of Heartland who have assisted the family during Marie’s at-home hospice.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, burial will be private.
