Born April 23, 1920, Marie was predeceased by her beloved husband of 31 years, George A. Saviano, a World War II veteran who died in 1978, and her parents, Giuseppe and Teresa DeLucia.

Before starting her family, Marie worked as a dressmaker in the House of Madame Nicole, a Madison Avenue, New York, fashion house, where she was referred to lovingly by the proprietor as "Ma Petite Marie".
Marie's survivors include her two sons and their wives, Dr. George J. and JoAnn-Neylan Saviano of Cranbury, New Jersey, and Anthony T. and Karen O'Brien Saviano of Monmouth Junction, New Jersey; her two grandchildren, Shannon Saviano Novak (with her husband, David Novak) of Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, and Kyle G.
