Maryann Giuliano (DeVincentis), 89, of Livingston, passed away peacefully on March 7, 2021. Maryann was born and raised in Newark, NJ before moving to Livingston in 1965 where she lived until her passing. In her early days, as a young lady, Maryann worked for Blue Cross in Newark. She was married to her husband Bill in 1953 and in 1973, they would create the family business, Giuliano's Catering Service. Maryann and Bill worked tirelessly together side by side, sacrificing many years to make their business successful! Even after Bill passed away, she continued to work as the matriarch of the business along with her son, Billy, until she retired at the age of 82. She was a fantastic gourmet cook, and an unbelievable baker! She absolutely loved watching the Food Channel and listening to Andrea Bocelli. Maryann enjoyed spending time down the shore with her family, and always made sure to whip up a delicious meal when everyone got back home from a day at the beach. Maryann had a special bond for over 50 years with a wonderful group of ladies from her neighborhood which they called "the club girls", sharing strong friendships and making lasting memories. Her grandkids, however, were her pride and joy! She loved each one tremendously.
Devoted mother of Angela Magnusson, her husband Guy, Patti Kluczyk, her husband Rich, William Giuliano and his wife Michelle. Cherished Mimi of Matthew, his wife Alison, Justine, Dana and Christopher. Dear sister of Antoinette Liccone. Also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Pre-deceased by her husband William J. Giuliano, Jr., her parents Michael and Virginia DeVincentis, and her brothers Tony & Patsy DeVincentis.
