Obituary of Maria Scro

Maria Scro, 89, of Clifton, passed away January 25, 2021.

Maria was born and raised in Marineo, Sicily. She came to the United States in Sept of 1955. She worked hard to start a new life in the States, she found a job and worked with Amloid in Lodi NJ. In the 1960’s Maria went on a 6-week vacation back to her hometown in Sicily and when she came back, she was relaxed from a wonderful time but also came back excited because she was engaged. She married the childhood sweetheart in 1965, Salvatore Scro. They had a son and a daughter and raised them in Clifton NJ. She was a devoted mother and worked hard to provide for her family.

Maria loved to cook and bake. She would enjoy following her soap operas when she could. She was known for her small obsessions of collecting. She found value in many things such as baseball cards, coins you name it she had a small collection of it. The most valuable thing to her was her family. She especially enjoyed being with her grandchildren. She always wanted to babysit when she could and would find time to be with them.
