Mary (Domenica) C. Palazzolo (nee Cipriano) –

Born April 29, 1930 and returned to God care on March 13, 2023. She was the dear wife of the late Paul H.

She was also the beloved sister of the late Peter, John, and Joseph Cipriano and Vita Badamo (nee Cipriano), and many nieces and nephews.

She was a card-carrying member of the Red Hat Society and an active member in the Humanities Group, a proud Eucharistic minister of her beloved parish of St. Peter in Mt. Clemens, a great Sicilian cook and baker who made the best cuccidati and cannoli in SE Michigan and was the Queen of the Apple Pie. As the Kickass Captain Mary of Vacation Trailer Days she was a master wooden-spoon wielder, ready to crack it on your behind if got out-of-hand. She will be remembered as a fabulous party thrower and game inventor as well as a wonderful teacher and tutor of English as a Second Language to immigrant children in the Chippewa Valley school district.
