Mary A. Veltri (née Mary A. Vizzaccaro) passed peacefully, with the comfort of her family at her side, at St. John Hospital on August 11, 2017at the age of 86.

Mary was the beloved wife of John T. Veltri who preceded her in death. She was the proud mother of Anthony (Virginia) Veltri, John (Patti) Veltri, Patricia (David) Marchetti, JoAnne (Greg) Flynn, Geralyn (Billie) Wilson, Paul (Debby)Veltri, Thomas and James Veltri. She was the cherished Nana to: Anthony (Emily) Veltri, Christopher (Meghan) Veltri, Patrick (fiancé Jenna) Veltri, Matthew Veltri, Daniel Veltri, Kevin Veltri, Michael (Christina) Marchetti, Matthew Marchetti, Andrew Marchetti, Kevin Flynn, Bryan Flynn, Noah Wilson, Eric Wilson, PJ Veltri, Amy Veltri, and Meghan Veltri.
