We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Cody-White Funeral Home
Marie Librandi passed away peacefully just one month shy of her 101st birthday. She was truly a force of nature whom we dubbed “the Energizer Bunny”. Family meant everything to her…she was a much-loved wife, mom, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, great-aunt, cousin, daughter, grand-daughter, great-grand-daughter.
Marie enjoyed so much in life and enthusiastically celebrated the accomplishments of her family — births, birthdays, graduations, weddings, anniversaries, awards, new homes and numerous adventures. She was our cheerleader!
She loved so many things and loved sharing them with friends and family: swimming, dancing, bowling, traveling, reading, college study, theatergoing, raising flowers, rooting for the Yankees and the Knicks, knitting, needlework, tailoring, cooking, partying… and, notably, political organizing. In her role as an active member and leader in the League of Women Voters and AARP, she advocated relentlessly for her strong political beliefs in Florida, Hartford and Washington D.C. with luminaries such as U.S. Representative Rosa De Lauro and U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal.
Towards the end of her long and eventful life, she loved being with family, lit up when seeing Gizmo, her long-lived canine pal—and most especially—her great-grandson, Frank — whom she called the bayyy-beee!!!
We will always miss and love Marie.
