Marie Boscalia, 95, of Kennebunk, Maine, passed away peacefully at Huntington Common on August 28, 2019. Born April 8th, 1924, in Providence, Rhode Island, a daughter of Antonetta Calvino and Albert Guercia, she married Rocco Boscalia on April 27th, 1946. They enjoyed 45 years of marriage before his death in 1996.

Marie is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Dolores and Michael Edwards of Kennebunkport and Vero Beach Florida and one sister, Jenny Croce, of Cranston Rhode Island. She was preceded in death by brothers Archie Guercia, Nick Guercia and Albert Guercia, and sister Flora Boscalia, all of Rhode Island.

Marie lived most of her life in Rhode Island, a devoted wife, mother and homemaker who also worked in retail for 10 years before moving to Maine in 2002. In Kennebunk, she enjoyed many hours walking at the beach, the Monastery and Rachel Carson Wildlife Preserve. Marie never lost her appreciation of the beauty of Maine and loved her adopted state. She was a regular communicant of St. Martha’s Catholic Church in Kennebunk. At Christmastime, Marie loved to bake Italian cookies and took great pleasure in distributing beautiful trays to her friends. Passionate about children and dogs, she enjoyed lavishing love and attention on both.

A Mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Martha’s Church in Kennebunk on August 31, at 11 AM. Marie will be interred with her husband at Arundel Cemetery.

Donations in her memory can be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Pl, Memphis, TN, 38105, or the Alzheimer’s Association of Maine, 383 Us Route 1, Scarborough, ME, 04074. The family extends their heartfelt gratitude to the loving staff of Bradford Commons and VNA Hospice.

A tree now grows to honor the life of one of my favorite women—Marie Boscalia, my beautiful friend, Maria, who loved Nature passionately. Long may it grow and add beauty to the world as she did.
