MARY PIZZO
Owner Mary’s Restaurant

CAIRO---Mary Pizzo, 89, of Cairo, formerly of Potter Hollow, died Saturday, April 6, 2002 at Ellis Hospital after falling at a nursing home. She had been in poor health for several years prior to her accident.

Born Dec 4, 1912, in Palermo, Italy, she was the daughter of the late Francesco and Concetta Pizzo.

She sailed to America in 1918 with the remainder of the family after the flu epidemic killed her father and several siblings. The second oldest of her four siblings, she assumed the leadership role in the family, being the first one to go to work and help support her mother, who spoke Italian. While her other siblings grew up and married, she remained devoted to her mother until her mother’s death in 1957.

She purchased a farm and 120 acres of land in Potter Hollow in 1953 and eventually moved to upstate from New York City and she started Mary’s Restaurant in Greenville.

She retired in the early 1980s and moved to Florida for a short period of time. However, she could not get used to the environment there and eventually moved to Oak Hill and then to Potter Hollow where she built a house and remained a resident until she became ill.

Her life was devoted to service to both her family and the community. Her early experience of immigration, having to face the adversities of blending into a less then culturally tolerant turn of the century New York City brought out qualities which served her well the rest of her life.

She had a propensity to take care of others combined with a strong spirituality. At one point in her life she entered the convent briefly but then withdrew when her mother needed help at home. She was always independent and had a strong sense of social responsibility.

Those close to her will remember her as someone who cared about other people, as a keen business woman, as a responsible citizen, and perhaps most of all as a deeply spiritual person who touched the lives of everyone she met.

Survivors include her two sisters, Connie Hughes of Florida and Rose Adonolfi of Virginia; two brothers, Dominick Pizzo of Italy and Salvadore Pizzo of Florida; also nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by a sister, Sadie Marinelli and a brother, Joseph Pizzo.

A memorial service to which relatives and friends are invited will be 4 PM Friday, May 31 from the Cunningham Funeral Home.
