March 13, 1931 - March 29, 2021
Marie (Rizzi) Bannon, 90, passed away at her home in Ormond Beach, FL on March 29, 2021. Marie was born in Tarrytown, NY to Patrick and Susan Rizzi and lived in Tarrytown and Pleasantville for many years. In retirement, Marie and her husband moved to Ormond Beach. Marie graduated from North Tarrytown High School in 1949 where she was the captain of the cheerleaders, a member of the National Honor Society, yearbook staff, band, andchorus. She was voted “most popular,” “most vivacious,” “most pleasing personality,” and “cutest” in her class, superlatives that endured her entire life. She married her high school sweetheart Joseph Bannon in 1951 while he served in the Army, joining him when stationed in Atlanta and finding work as the secretary to Joe’s commanding officer. Following his service, the couple returned to Tarrytown and later moved to a new home in Pleasantville, raising their two children, Joseph and Pattie, there. Marie reentered the workplace in 1967 taking a job in the Pleasantville School District, first in the Middle School and then the High School as the secretary to the principal, serving six principals during her 20-year tenure. Her last principal described her as “never rattled, has time for everyone, completely dedicated and an unsung hero.” Marie was a bundle of positive energy with an inquisitive, adventurous spirit and an outgoing personality. She had a lifelong desire to learn, to stay current and to experience new things, travel to places she had never been to before, socialize with friends and family, listen to live music, enjoy the beach whether that be Wildwood, NJ or Ormond Beach, watch sporting events of any kind, especially stock car races, and attend her granddaughter’s performances wherever those would take her. She lived life to the fullest and didn’t want to miss a minute of it. Most of all, she was a truly loving wife, mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, sister and aunt who put faith and family above everything else. Marie will be terribly missed and lovingly remembered. Marie was predeceased by her husband of nearly 70 years, Joseph, and her brother Dr. Daniel Rizzi. She is survived by her son Joseph and wife Maureen Bannon, her daughter Pattie and husband Timothy Burniston, and her granddaughter Erin Burniston. Please check back for service details.
