With her many friends she enjoyed traveling to Casinos, Playing Cards and loved the spirit and decorations of the Christmas Holidays with her family and friends. She was a valued friend to all who met her. Marl was first in line when it came time to play and always first in line when it came to work on a job that was to be done. She was preceded in death by her father, Peppy Mattachione. She leaves to celebrate her life, her 98 year old mother Mary Eremita Mattachione. Her beloved 3 sons, Vince Capuano (Laura) of New Hampshire, Dude Capuano (Sophie) of Canton, John Capuano (Annette) of Perry Township. Brother Louie Mattachione (Frank Trace) of Perry Township.

To Vince, Dude and John, We are so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. We've known Marlene for 40+ years and she was always smiling with a great sense of humor. Marlene's 1966 Mustang was the first car I drove, when I was 12. When we think of Marlene, we smile. May she RIP!
