Mary E Brangoccio passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on March 25, 2018. She was born on January 31, 1932, in Denver, Colorado, to Robert and Olga Carson. She was older sister to Robert Burke Carson Jr who was born 4 years to the day after she was. They were close all through their lives until he preceded her in death in 2010.
Mary met her husband, George Brangoccio, in 1951. They had a wonderful marriage for the next 50 years. They raised three loving children: George Jr., married to Joy; Connie (deceased), married to Alan Fuller, and Tony, married to Kathy. She had four adoring grandchildren: Lisa Easton (deceased), Emily (Brangoccio) Vallery, Anna Brangoccio and Cory Brangoccio; and three loving great-grandchildren, James, Olive and Ivy Vallery. Together, Mary and George took the lessons they learned from their humble beginnings and built a solid foundation from hard work, sacrifice, a sense of humor and loving support that their family would grow to cherish and depend on.
When George Sr. passed away, well before his time on December 15, 2000, Mary made good use of her time volunteering at church, travelling, socializing and doting on her grandchildren and later great-grandchildren, and never missing a workout.
She is remembered by her family and those who knew her well as a strong, thoughtful, funny, charismatic, classy, cool, unendingly supportive, independent, inspirational, warm, accepting, creative, encouraging, enthusiastic woman.
It was Mary’s wish that any memorial donations in her name be made to the charity of the donor’s choosing.
Directly following the gathering at 3PM the family is inviting those in attendance to join them for a reception.
If Tomorrow Starts Without Me
If tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today,
while thinking of the many things we didn't get to say.
I know how much you care for me, and how much I care for you,
and each time that you think of me I know you'll miss me too;
So if tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,
for every time you think of me, please know I'm in your heart.
