Obituary for Mary Carmella DiGiovanni

Mary Carmella DiGiovanni, 82, of Whitehouse Station, NJ, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 3, 2018. She was born in Union, NJ, and graduated from Union High School in 1954. Mary lived in Piscataway, NJ, for 42 years before moving to White House Station, NJ, in 2002. Mary worked for Rutgers University in Piscataway from 1978 until her retirement in 2002.

Mary’s greatest joy was pouring her motherly love and affection into her family, especially her grandchildren. There was nothing she loved more than enjoying time with her family and friends. No matter the function or what was needed, Mary was always the first to help. She loved tending to her family. She especially enjoyed babysitting her grandchildren and supported them at school shows, dance recitals, and sporting events. Mary had a servants’ heart and set a wonderful example for her family.

Mary was a tireless worker with a strong work ethic. Whether it was raising her children or working at Rutgers or at home, she was non-stop motion. Her family and friends knew her affinity for cleaning and cleanliness; dirt didn’t stand a chance. She loved crafts, sewing and fashion, as well as decorating her home. She was so proud of the beautiful storks she made for the arrival of each of her grandchildren. After retirement, Mary volunteered for many years at Raritan Valley Community College Theatre. She altered costumes, prepared food, served performers, and worked as an usher on show days. When her daughters were growing up, Mary made costumes for the dance recitals. Mary loved to cook and bake, and if there was a get together you could always find her at the kitchen sink doing dishes. Mary also found great joy in country-western line dancing, loved country music, and spending time at the beach. The most amazing thing about Mary was she would sacrifice and do without so that her family and others would have.

Mary is preceded in death by her beloved parents, Anna and Frank DiGiovanni, and nephew, Michael Kirchner.

Mary is survived by her loving children, Alex Dziemianowski and wife, Lynn; Michele Waide and husband, Kevin; and Christine Bontempo and husband, Mark; her grandchildren that alighted her life: Daniella and AJ Dziemianowski; Jeremy and Natalie Waide; and Mark and Tommy Bontempo; her sister, Diane, and brother-in-law, Bob Kirchner; sister, Frances, and brother-in-law, Bruce Mackewicz; and her many wonderful nieces and nephews including, Joanne Kirchner, Brian Mackewicz, Mary Choda, Dawn Mackewicz, Carla Aromando, Al Spiwak, and Steven Spiwak. She loved you all.
