Loving Aunt to her nieces and nephews, Rosanna Magarelli, Michael Bonanno, Catherine Magarelli, Stephen Bonanno and Michele Dafter. Great Aunt to Ashley, Morgan, Nicky, Mathew and Kyah. Many of her friends' children called her “Aunt Martha”, so she has many more honorary nieces and nephews throughout New Jersey.
Martha worked at Maxwell House in Hoboken, New Jersey for 35 years. She is remembered by all for always being a lively spirit in a variety of ways. Her nieces remember always singing and dancing around the living room with her to 50’s music. She loved being active and traveled widely with her girlfriends as a young woman. She loved going to Radio City Music Hall to see The Rockettes as well as attending Ice Capades performances for many years. Martha always enjoyed being around people and being social. Some of her favorite activities when she was young were roller-skating at the RollarRink as well as bowling. Her very favorite hobby was being an amateur photographer and videographer for all of her many trips around the world as well as at all the family holidays.
Martha was a longtime parishioner of Saint Paul of the Cross Church in Jersey City, New Jersey. She was a devout Catholic and attended mass regularly and had a practice of saying the rosary daily. She was always willing to take time to say special prayers and dedicated rosaries for family members and friends with problems or health issues.
Martha will be missed by her family and friends and we all wish her to be at peace now.
