Palma Marrone, 83, of Livingston, passed away on Tuesday, January 3, 2023 after a long illness. Palma was born on April 2, 1939 to Salvatore and Bernarda Longobardi in Brooklyn, NY. She moved to Jersey City when she was eight years old, but she never forgot her Brooklyn roots (and never lost her accent). Despite her fading memory, Palma fondly recalled the story of spending all her money (including train fare) at Coney Island and having to walk home with her friends.
Palma married George Marrone in 1962 and moved to Rutherford to raise her family. She spent her final years with her family in Livingston participating in day to day family life, going on vacation and day trips, and walking the dog.
Palma was predeceased by her son, Vincent and her husband, George. She is survived by her daughters, Donna DiTonto and Dorian Gemellaro and sons-in-law, David and Michael and her grandchildren, Giana, Vincent, Alessia, and Nicholas.
