Marie J Salvucci, 90, beloved daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and teacher, passed away peacefully on April 9th. Always a warm and adventurous spirit who was full of life, she provided positive perspective to all who were blessed to know her. Marie (lovingly referred to as Auntie Ri by her nieces and nephews) was born in Newton, lived in Newton most of her life, and taught at Framingham State College for most of her career. She is preceded in death by her parents, Antonio & Donata (Visco), sisters, Eleanor Cetrone & Josephine Cedrone, brothers, Ralph & Anthony (Sal), and her devoted friend, Virginia Waller. She is survived by many nieces, nephews and close friends who will remember her fondly, miss her energy, free spirit, willingness to try new things, and sound advice. Her beloved Cape Cod home, sadly, will no longer ring with her laughter and her family and friends will no longer be able to revel in her playfulness. She will be sorely missed. There will be a private ceremony to celebrate Marie’s life. Donations can be made in Marie’s memory to Good Shepherd Community Care, 90 Wells Avenue, Newton, MA 02459.
