May 18, 1954 - November 29, 2020
Marian Margaret Giarrusso passed into the Church Triumphant on November 29, 2020. She was born to parents Enrico and Helen Giarrusso in Syracuse, NY on May 18, 1954 (the Marian Year). She graduated in the last class of St. John the Baptist High School (see photo) and attended Powelson Business with a degree in Business Finance. She then graduated from Onondaga Community College with a degree in Accounting. Marian held various positions in several businesses in Syracuse with positive affirmations about her creativity, accuracy, and loyalty. She was always willing to be “in on a joke” and enjoyed passing time with family and friends. She loved playing Pinochle and other games with her nieces and nephews (even if they cheated). She was also a very talented artist and created exquisite paintings and drawings. Her entire life was a testament to her Faith. Marian practiced the virtues Christ instructed us to follow with devotion and energy. She enjoyed taking Communion to homebound individuals and Nursing Home residents, visiting with them, and hearing their stories. She was willing to give them the gift of her time and the appreciation they had was remarkable. She was predeceased by her parents and brother Patrick. Marian is survived by 4 siblings, Francis (Denise), Mary Jane (Richard) Wilkin, Michael (Christine), and Timothy (Lori) Giarrusso, as well as 5 nephews, 3 nieces, 4 great-nephews and 2 great-nieces. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 9:30 am on Saturday, December 5, 2020 at St. Margaret’s Church, Mattydale, with burial to follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery, DeWitt. Calling hours will be held on Friday, December 4, 2020 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm at the THOMAS J. PIRRO JR. FUNERAL HOME, 3401 Vickery Rd, (corner of Buckley Rd.) N. Syracuse, NY.
