Mary L. Iamarone

February 13, 1944 — February 6, 2017

Mary Lou Iamarone (Hanley) passed away at the age of 72 surrounded by her loving family. She was the youngest of four children born to the late Dr. Francis and Doris Hanley. Mary Lou was married to her husband Daniel Iamarone, and celebrated 47 years of happiness, love, joy, and faith. Together they raised four children who have grown into adults that share a love for life and caring for others that was so much a part of Mary Lou's life. Her children and their spouses, Daniel and Melissa Iamarone; Jennifer and Christopher Reilly; David and Nicole Iamarone; and Scott and Shannon Iamarone, take comfort in knowing that mom is no longer in pain and her spirit will always live on with them and their children. Mary Lou's life was centered around her family. She adored her brothers Robert Hanley of Chepachet and Jeffrey Hanley of Jewett City, CT, with whom she shared her early years on the ski patrol in New Hampshire, and later years enjoying lakefront parties surrounded by family. She was particularly close with her late sister Donna Corcoran of Lancaster, PA, who she skated with as a child, and grew up to babysit for her cherished nephews and niece who all counted her as the favorite auntie. Thanksgiving trips and summer excursions to Lancaster to see the Pennsylvania crew were a staple of Mary Lou's life, which solidified the special bond she had with her sister. Mary Lou's love of family was matched by her dedication to her work life. She completed studies at the Sweeney Secretarial School in Pawtucket after graduating from St. Mary Academy, Bay View in 1961. She worked for many years as the bookkeeper and secretary at St. Augustine School in Providence. She then went to work for over 20 years as a secretary at the law firm of Edwards and Angell for her dear friend James McGuirk. Mary Lou also spent her evenings working as a typist for local lawyer Albert Martin, whose weeknight visits in the evening to drop off work were a staple of the Iamarone home. In later years Mary Lou was blessed to welcome nine grandchildren to her family. She doted on the children who came to know that visits to Grandma's house were always a treat. Whether it be the controlled chaos of a holiday gathering or a simple visit to say hello, Grandma's home was a place of laughs and love. Mary Lou is most fondly remembered by her grandchildren Matthew, Jonathan, Emma, Anthony, Jacob, Zachary, Marin, Gavin, and Mallory. Mary Lou leaves a long list of friends and relatives that enjoyed her spirit and love of life. Together with her partner in life Daniel, they were an inseparable duo that shared a deep faith in god that sustained them both until her final days. Her funeral will be held Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 9 a.m. from the Maceroni Funeral Home, 1381 Smith Street in North Providence with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 am in St. Augustine Church, 639 Mt. Pleasant Avenue, Providence. Burial will be in Mount St. Mary Cemetery in East Providence. Visiting hours are Friday from 4 to 7 pm. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made in her memory to Hope Hospice and Palliative Care, 1085 North Main St., Providence, RI 02904.
