Mary DeSio, 87, died Thursday, November 10, 2005 at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines from heart failure. Funeral services will be 10:30 AM Monday at Holy Trinity Catholic Church with burial to follow at Glendale Cemetery.

Mary was a life-long resident of Des Moines. She married Joseph John DeSio on October 29, 1950 at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. Mary was a Cub Scout Den Mother, a member of the Altar and Rosary Society and a

55 year member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church. The love of her life was her husband, Joe and her children and her grandchildren. Mary had a passion for cooking wonderful Italian food. Everyone was always welcome at her table and one of her greatest joys was knowing that no one ever left her home hungry.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents Theobaldo and Carmella Formaro, sister Rose Mazza, brothers, Phillip, Louie, Mike, Frank, Dominic and George Formaro and her grandson Joseph Chad DeSio. She is survived by her loving husband Joseph, children, Tom (Margaret) DeSio, Rose DeSio, Joseph R. DeSio, John DeSio and Anthony DeSio, grandchildren, Cara DeSio, Maria DeSio, Clare DeSio and Joe DeSio, her great granddaughter, Bailey DeSio, brothers, Gordon and James Formaro, and her brother in law, Bennie DeSio all of Des Moines. Mary leaves many loving nieces, nephews, close friends and neighbors.

The family will receive friends from 3 to 6 PM Sunday at Holy Trinity Catholic Church where a vigil service will be held at 5 PM. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to the Holy Trinity School Endowment.
