WATERTOWN, N.Y.  —  Marion Agnes Massaro, 92, formerly of Watertown, beloved wife of Pasqualino "Pat" Massaro, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 24th, at the New York State Veterans Home in Batavia surrounded by friends and family.

She joined the Army in 1942 and served four years as an Army nurse during World War II with duty in China, Burma and India, receiving an Honorable Discharge in 1946.

Following her discharge, she attended SUNY Plattsburgh where she met Pasqualino “Pat” Massaro. They were married on December 13th, 1947.

The couple had nine children, and eventually settled in Watertown in 1964.  Marion continued her career in nursing at both Mercy Hospital and The House of the Good Samaritan until her retirement. She was active in her children’s schools, a lifelong communicant of St. Patrick’s Catholic Parish, a member of the Altar-Rosary Society, the American Red Cross, and other community based organizations.
