Caroline A. Martelli (DeRiso) of Yardley passed away peacefully Saturday at St. Marys' Hospital. She was 79 and a resident of Attleboro Nursing Facility.
Born and raised in Greenlawn, NY, Caroline remained until marrying Charles P. Martelli and moving to Yardley. She retired from NJ Manufacturers Insurance Company and enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, most recently her friends from the Morrisville Senior Center.
She is finally reunited with her love, friend, and husband Charles. Most Sundays were spent doing the "rosary" with her girls and most other days reading, crocheting or watching her favorite "Hallmark" movies. She will be remembered for her kind heart, welcoming smile, and her deep devotion to her Catholic faith. To Caroline, family was everything.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Charles and parents, Frank and Carolina DeRiso. She is survived by her sisters, Teresa Aliperti and Janet Conforti, both of New York; 6 children Edith Brown (David) of Yardley, Anita Bezilla of Yardley, Carey Zimmerman (Bill) of Langhorne, Charles P. Martelli, Jr,(Jennifer) of Hatfield, Janine Grogan (Tim) of Newtown and Marla Morschauser (Ron) of Yardley, along with 12 grandchildren and a great granddaughter.
The Martelli family would like to thank the staff at Attleboro Nursing Facility and all of St. Marys' 2nd floor nurses for the wonderful care and compassion they showed Caroline and her family during these last days.
Graveside services with social distancing will be on Thursday, May 7th, 2020 at 2:00pm at the St. Ignatius cemetery on River Road, Yardley.
