Obituary of Carolann Russo Marigliano

Carolann Russo Marigliano, age 61, passed away on Thursday, October 24, 2019 at her home in Middlesex, N.J. She was born on December 14, 1957 in Plainfield and was raised there before relocating to Middlesex in 1986, where she has resided since.

Her cooking was phenomenal, and her onion pies and eggplant will persist through the family memory. She loved putting on garage sales as much as she loved going to them.

She was a parishioner of Our Lady of Mount Virgin in Middlesex, N.J.
