Louise Marino Cassella, beloved mother, grandmother and friend to everyone passed away peacefully on June 1, 2020. She was predeceased by her parents, Louis Marino and Norma Wenderoth and had two children, Michael and Emily Cassella, and two grandsons Michael and Derek. Louise was born on April 2, 1952 in the Bronx. Grew up in Dobbs Ferry, New York, went to Dobbs Ferry High School and flew with the Eagles. Louise studied education at SUNY Geneseo and received her Master’s in Education at Mercy College. Louise taught elementary school in East Los Angeles for 4 years. She and her family moved back to New York where she taught school in the South Bronx for 19 years. Teaching, of course, was one of her passions along with cooking, listening to music, and photography. Another passion was sports. Louise liked the Giants and Lakers, but LOVED the Yankees. She liked playing softball and flag football, and was a great athlete. Unfortunately, in her prime she started to suffer from Huntington’s Disease which is a debilitating hereditary disease. Her great grandmother, grandmother and father all suffered from it. Although Huntington’s took many things away from Louise, it never took her will to fight, her intellect, her very kind heart and her sense of humor. Laughing was her answer to all of the misery. She would always ask how you were, how is so and so, even if she was not feeling well. Her kindness touched everyone who ever met her and she will be terribly missed. At the moment there is no cure for this disease and it ultimately causes death. And because it is not “popular”, funding is kind of lacking. In lieu of flowers, Louise’s family request that you honor her with donations to Columbia University Irving Medical Center Selected Fund: Taub Institute Huntington's Disease Research Center Gift or to the Huntingtons Disease Society of America in memory of our beautiful Louise.
