Obituary of Mary Louise Pilvelis

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, Mary Filippini Pilvelis, on February 5, 2020. Mary was born with her twin, Margie, on July 6, 1936, to the late Artimesia and Lorenzo Filippini. She was a 1954 graduate of Plains Memorial High School and worked her entire life in the garment industry. She was a devote member of Saints Peter and Paul and Saint Benedict’s church. Mary will be dearly missed, more than she will know, by her loving daughter Lynn Pilvelis Hauser and son-in-law Karl. The two lights of her life and the center of her world, her grandchildren, Corey and Stephanie Hauser, who brought her perpetual joy. Everyone who knew Mary knew she would brag about them to anyone and everyone who would listen. She could not be prouder of all they accomplished. Mary is survived by her twin sister, and other half, Margret Russo, her sister Elsie Belmont, and brother Frank Filippini. Many loving nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and her granddog Koko. Proceeding Mary in death was her husband, John Pilvelis, her sisters Lena Ribolini, Catherine Snyder, Rose Snopek, and her brothers Renato and Geno Filippini. Her sister-in-laws Stella Kanor, Josephine “Honey” Pilvelis, and her brother-in-law Joseph Pilvelis. We will miss your sauce, risotto, Christmas cookies, and watching old videos—but most of all, we will miss you. You will always be our sunshine, our only sunshine.
