Obituary for Margaret L. Skoufis (De Nuzzia)

February 18, 1965 – June 16, 2022
Circleville, NY

Margaret L. Skoufis, of Circleville, NY entered into eternal rest unexpectedly on June 16, 2022 at Northern Westchester Hospital, Mount Kisco, NY. She was 57 years old.

The daughter of the late Joseph De Nuzzia and Margaret (McCormick) De Nuzzia, Margaret was born on February 18, 1965 in Brooklyn, NY.

Margaret was a Paralegal for Gary M. Sobo, Esq. in Middletown, NY before devoting her life to her family.

A family statement reads: “Margaret, at the age of 18, struck out on her own early and from that point forward, she was always a step ahead in everything she did. She eventually went to work for Gary Sobo, Esq. and, in no time, she became a proficient Paralegal and Office Manager that oversaw the daily activities of the office. One day while working, this young Marine, Milton, in uniform had stopped by to get some paper work that he needed. The meeting, while professional, had a slight hic up on his part of when he miscalculated her age; a mistake that was never made again…Ever. From there they started dating and eventually he made amends by bringing her to Hawaii for the first time for her birthday, and from there she fell in love with her second home, Hawaii. The love they had after that was locked and Margaret and Milton were married (Eloped) in Kauai in 1996. Following the births of her two children, Isabella in 1998 and Joseph in 2001, she became a stay home mom dedicated to raising them. She was a Mama Bear when it came to her children and woe be those who stepped in front of her. Margaret was involved in all aspects of her children’s lives, because they were her world. One of her biggest loves was seeing her children involved in music and watching them from elementary to High School performing in Band and Concert. She was especially proud when they successfully auditioned for All County, Area All State and NYSMA self-performances. She always beamed with absolute pride whenever they played. She also made sure that Milton, who simultaneously worked in the NYPD and served in the Air National Guard, was able to do his job without worrying about the home front. In every way, she was always family first and whenever there was help needed for others, there was no hesitation on her part and no question. Family visitations always brought her joy to see them all. Margaret was a selfless soul with nothing but love in her heart for all. Her kindness continues on as she was an organ donor and many lives have already been impacted by her. Meeting her for the first time, you knew you met a soul that was kind, loving, compassionate; and for a few, she was fierce and feared if you crossed her family or did wrong. Margaret has left everyone with memories of her to cherish a lifetime over. She will be missed greatly.

Margaret is survived by her devoted husband: Milton J. Skoufis at home; her children: Isabella G. and Joseph L. Skoufis at home; her siblings: Anne Marie (De Nuzzia) Brown and her husband Martin, Mary Jane De Nuzzia, Michael De Nuzzia and his wife Bernadeen, Kevin De Nuzzia and his wife Sheralee, Joseph De Nuzzia, and Kelly De Nuzzia; her mother-in-law: Joanne Skoufis; her in-laws: George (Irene) Skoufis, Kostas (Natalia) Skoufis, Maria Skoufis Gdisis, and John (Maryann) Skoufis; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
