UPDATE: On Tuesday, July 23, Honan Funeral Home announced, "Due to the paving of the parking lot at St Rose of Lima Church, the Mass of Christian Burial for Maryann F. Carbone scheduled for Monday, July 29, at 11 am has been moved to St Jude Church, 707 Monroe Turnpike, Monroe, on the same day and time."
Maryann F. Macionus Carbone, previously of Nunnawauk Meadows in Newtown, passed away peacefully at Newtown Rehabilitation and Health Care Center on June 26, 2019. She was 86.
Maryann was born on April 13, 1933, in Bridgeport, to Angeline and Joseph Macionus. She graduated from Warren Harding High School in 1951. Maryann trained for her career in nursing to become a RN at Bridgeport Hospital School of Nursing. During her 45-year career, Maryann worked at Bridgeport Hospital; Baltimore Maryland Hospital; a nursing home in Wayne, N.J.; and then Masonicare of Newtown as a RN supervisor.
She married Louis J. Carbone of Bridgeport in 1958 and spent time raising her family where they resided in Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, and then returned back to Connecticut. They ultimately settled in Bethel.
The selfless nature which made Maryann an expeditious nurse was evident to those with whom she came into contact, and she will be remembered and missed by her friends and family. She was never happier than when taking care of others and spending time with family, especially her grandchildren.
Maryann loved to read, and stacks of books could always be found beside her bed and next to her favorite chair. She also loved to cook some of her favorite recipes.
Maryann is survived by her sister, Joan, and husband, Donald Bertola, of Florida; brother, Joseph Macionus of Florida; children, David and wife Jill of Middlebury, Kerry and wife Cindy of Oakville, Christopher and wife Silviane of Newtown, and daughter Patty and husband Ralf Hasemann of Warren; her three grandchildren, Bryant, Noel, and Michael; nieces, nephews, and cousins.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated July 29, 2019, at 11 am, in St Rose of Lima Church, Newtown. Burial will be private, for the immediate family.
Memorial donations in lieu of flowers may be made to a local animal shelter.
The family especially wishes to thank the staff of Newtown Rehabilitation and Health Care center for the love and wonderful care they gave to Maryann in her final months. And special thanks to her roommate, Mary, who made Maryann’s last few months pleasurable.
Honan Funeral Home, Newtown is in charge of funeral arrangements.
