Marie T. Costanzo

Marie Teresa Costanzo was born January 4, 1946 in Brooklyn NY.  She grew up in Bolton CT and graduated from Manchester High School.  Marie made her journey into eternal peace on May 9, 2020 after a brief illness.

There was nothing more important to Marie than her children and cherished grandchildren. Family was everything to her. She was a great provider, devoted supporter, and fierce protector. 

Marie was a hard worker and valued employee for many years at the Connecticut Bank and Trust until it closed, transitioning to the SCJREX Corporation, and then to the USI Consulting Group.

Marie loved driving and would think nothing of a “short” 9-hour trip to the Outer Banks of NC with “the girls” or a “quick” 3-hour jaunt to Ogunquit ME with her granddaughters.

Marie is survived by her son Kenny Rooke, Jr. and his wife Leslie of Chaplin, CT; her son-in-law Shawn Corey of Manchester; her grandchildren Haleigh Corey, Victoria Rooke, Ava Rooke and Tommy Pestritto; and her brother Joseph Costanzo, Sr., and wife Dawn of Tolland; her dear friend and “out-law” Lorraine (Fox) Costanzo of Andover; and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. 

Marie was predeceased by her parents Joseph and Fannie (Grimaldi) Costanzo; her brothers Salvatore, John, Victor, and Richard; and her beloved daughter Michelle Corey.

There will be a graveside gathering on Saturday, May 16, at 9:00am at St. James Cemetery, 360 Broad Street, Manchester CT and a celebration of her life in the afternoon at 18 Ross Road., Chaplin CT.  The John F. Tierney Funeral Home, Manchester has care of the arrangements.  For online condolences please visit www.tierneyfuneralhome.com.
