Marie C. Wisniewski

Age 84, of Newark, DE, formerly of Wilmington, passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 23, 2018, at Jeanne Jugan Residence (Little Sisters of the Poor).

Born in Wilmington, Marie was the daughter of the late Joseph and Elizabeth (DiIenno) Cicchini. She was a graduate of P.S. DuPont High School. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Joseph F. Wisniewski, in 2006.

Marie will be dearly missed by her daughters, Kathy Willard (Bob) of Wilmington, Terry Thompson of Clarksburg, MD and Patty Nadrotowicz (Edward) of Monroe, NY; and her sons, Joe (companion, Cece) of Hockessin and John (Madeleine) of West Grove, PA. Also surviving are her grandchildren, Stephanie Saggione (Joe), Matthew Willard (Michele), Jess Ayer (Michael), Jamie Lemon (Mark), Emily Wisniewski Wismer (Jim), Tim and Meg Wisniewski and Nicky and Zack
Nadrotowicz; and five great grandchildren, Emma, Gabrielle, Tyler, Josephina and Berkeley.

Marie loved the beach, sitting on the front porch, and crocheting but most of all she loved spending time with her family. The family would like to thank the Sisters and staff at Little Sisters of the Poor for the care and comfort they gave to our mom in her final years.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, August 31st at 12 noon at St. John the Beloved Church, 907 Milltown Road, Wilmington, where friends are invited to call after 10 AM. Entombment will follow at Cathedral Cemetery, Wilmington.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Little Sisters of the Poor, 185 Salem Church Road, Newark, DE 19713. Condolences may be made by visiting

What fond memories I have of your mom. She always was working for her family, loving her kids, grandkids, and of course your Dad. Your parents are some of the first people Noo wanted me to meet, for obvious reasons; truly wonderful, kind, and loving people. So glad they were part of my life and sorry you have lost her.
