“Loving Wife, Mother and Grandmother”
Marie Natale, 97, of Canonsburg passed away following a brief illness Friday October 27, 2017 with her loving family by her side.
The love of her family telling her “it’s okay Gram, we’ll be okay" brought her a sense of peace. She had to hear those words before she left her family.
Her home was always the gathering place for family and friends. On Sundays her immediate family would be in her home watching TV and filling up on delicious pasta and chicken. Always one to be conscious of her appearance, she was often seen by her family looking in the mirror making sure that everything was just right.
She was born November 2, 1919 in Canonsburg the daughter of the late Daniel and Julia DePaulo (Powell) Devitis, Sr.
She was Roman Catholic and a member of St. Patrick Roman Catholic Church in Canonsburg.

On November 20, 1937 in St. Patrick Church in Canonsburg, she married Louis R. Natale who passed away in 2002.
