Marie (Vinci) Kassirer

Marie Kassirer died on June 28, 2018 at the age of 99. She was eighteen days short of her 100th birthday on July 17th, but she always insisted that she was already living in her hundredth year. Marie was an avid and accomplished duplicate bridge player. She owned and operated a number of businesses in which she was involved until the very end. Of all her numerous career endeavors, Marie truly enjoyed writing as a Maryknoll correspondent. She was devoted and loving to her husband Benjamin, who predeceased her; and mother to their two children, Eli and Rachel and their spouses, Tammy Raffaele and Danny Zimak; and she was cherished by her grandchildren Dav, Rebecca, Lauren, Jason and Avi (his wife Megan); and her great-grandchildren Nevaeh, Nayelie, and Alexena. Her family dearly loves her and she will be in their hearts forever. LIBBY FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES, 55 Teller Ave. Beacon, NY 12508 (845) 831-0179. To offer condolences, please visit:
