Margaret Mary Camillo, known affectionately as Mickey, died on August 13 after a lengthy battle with pulmonary disease. She was 82 years old.
She was born on April 3, 1936 to Margaret Mary and Edward Iannarelli in Mamaroneck, NY along with her twin sister, Lucille. She married at the age of 19 and relocated to Greenwich where she lived out the remaining 63 years of her life in the town she loved to call home.
After many years as a stay at home mom and volunteer at Hamilton Avenue School, Mickey worked as an operations manager for Union Trust Bank in Greenwich.
She retired at 59 and spent the next years doing what she loved best – taking care of those around her. Her passion to help those in her life was indefatigable. She was the quintessential baseball/soccer /hockey/gymnastics mom who never missed a game.
She is predeceased by her husband Joseph Camillo and her siblings, Lucille Carriero, Edward Iannarelli, William Iannarelli and Raymond Foreman along with her parents.
She is survived by her son Dean Camillo and daughter-in-law Anne, daughter Terri and son-in-law Charles Angotto and four grandsons Chaz, Tyler, Dean and Brian.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in her name can be made to Parsonage Cottage at 88 Parsonage Road in Greenwich.
The staff at Parsonage was wonderful to Mickey in her final two years and the many gatherings – picnics, parties, spiritual chats and music concerts gave her great joy.
To honor her life, family and friends are welcome to gather on Thursday 4:00-8:00pm at Coxe & Graziano Funeral Home, 134 Hamilton Ave in Greenwich.
A mass of Christian burial will be held on Friday 10:00am at St. Roch R.C. Church, followed by interment at St. Mary’s Cemetery.
