Mary R. D’Elia (nee Taddei), of Mahwah, New Jersey, formerly of Wantagh, New York, died at the age of 87 on October 3, 2020. Beloved wife of George D’Elia (predeceased), mother to Jim D’Elia (Jeanne), Tom D’Elia (Sara) and Christopher D’Elia (predeceased). Grandmother to Joe, Nicholas, Paige, Claire, Thomas and Dan. A first generation American, and the daughter of hard-working European immigrants, Mary’s love for family knew no boundaries. Her children, daughter’s-in-law and grandchildren were the pillars on which her life’s foundation was built. She found humor in everyday life that will leave lifelong impressions with her granddaughters, Paige and Claire. She loved to listen and enjoyed sharing stories, even more. Mary held a deep faith in Jesus, Our Lord, The Mother Mary and God Almighty.
