April 24, 1929–July 24, 2019
Cornwall, NY

Mary E. (Settanni) King, of Cornwall, NY entered peacefully into eternal rest on July 24, 2019 at home with her loving family by her side. She was 90 years old.

The daughter of the late Albert Settanni and Elizabeth (Beirne) Settanni, Mary was born April 24, 1929 in Brooklyn, NY. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 65 years, Theodore F. King in 2015.

She was an active member of St. Thomas of Canterbury Church in Cornwall, NY where she and Ted were blessed to support life by coordinating the St. Thomas Respect Life Committee for many years.

A family statement reads:
Dad and mom had a love and marriage that was so beautiful to behold every day. She was his Queen and he was her King. She loved all her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren unconditionally as each one was a special gift from God. Mary often reminisced to her children about summer days spent at Jones Beach with her best friend Janet. She enjoyed gardening, painting and sketching, bible study and fellowship with her Christian brothers and sisters. Mary was blessed with the gift of prayer which she shared openly with all.

Mary is survived by her children: Charles and Kyoko King, Chris and Donna King, Paul King, Louise and David Carnright, Elizabeth and George Ewanich, Ted and Darlene King, Damian and Jean King, her son-in-law Steve Scalzo, Frances Parisi and her fiancé John Falvella, Eileen and Phil Kamrass, and 50+ grandchildren and great grandchildren. Mary was predeceased by her daughters: Margaret Mary King Scalzo and Mary Antoinette King; and all of her six siblings.

We would like to thank all that gave us so much help with mom in her later years especially the Conley and Preiss families, caregivers Lyndsay Forstner, Eileen Wager and Roseann DiSpigna, along with all the women of the St. Thomas Mothers’ Prayer Group, and nurses and aides from Hospice of Orange County.

Visitation will be held from 3-7 p.m. on Sunday, July 28, at Quigley-Sullivan Funeral Home, Inc., 337 Hudson Street, Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, July 29th at St. Thomas of Canterbury Church, 340 Hudson Street, Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY: Father John Vondras will officiate. Interment will follow the mass at St. Thomas Cemetery, Cornwall, NY.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Sisters of Life, 38 Montebello Rd., Suffern, NY 10901 or to Hospice of Orange County.

With sincere condolences to the King family for the loss of their mother, Mary. My heart is full of wonderful memories shared with the King siblings and their loving parents. Your mother’s unconditional love for life was shared equally amongst those whom were blessed to have known her. With such grace, Mrs. King’s devotion to family and faith was a pillar in life all should aspire to be.

One afternoon I had visited St. Thomas Church…. a woman with snow white hair was praising the Lord with song. A solo voice full of love and singing like an angel, it was Mrs. King. Making my presence known Mrs. King hugged me and offered kind words. It was the last moment I shared with your beloved mother that I will cherish. May you take comfort in knowing there is one more angel above us!
