MARY CATHERINE EUZIERE
Mary Catherine Campise Euziere was born in Dallas, Texas on December 22, 1930. She left her earthly life behind on March 8, 2020, in Richardson, Texas surrounded by her three loving sons.
The eldest of seven wonderful children, she lived her entire life in Dallas until the past 15 years when she moved to Plano to be closer to two of her sons. The majority of her adult life was spent working as a bookkeeper in the financial industry in Dallas. Very proud of her Italian heritage, Mary remained close with all her siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, and family friends in the Dallas community. She raised three fine sons who were the pride and joy of her life. Michael who retired as a Captain from the U.S. Air Force and recently retired from NASA; Patrick who is a Network Systems Engineer at Verizon, and Mark, who is a Regional Liability Administrator at Geico. Each of them married women who cherished their mother-in-law and loved her as their own mothers. Her children blessed her with eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren who all continue to cherish their Italian heritage and made their Grandma and MeMaw so very proud of them each:
Shelly – her “Angel”, and the first to make her a grandmother
Michael Loren – her “Pride”, a proud Florida Gator and first-born grandson
Alex – her “Heart”
Natalie – her “Love”
Anna – her “Dear”
Alyssa – her “Princess”
A.J. – her “Big Man”, and
Andrew – her “Baby Boy”
Mary was preceded in death by her parents, Jasper and Juanita Campise; her daughter, Catherine; her brothers Frank and Joe Campise; and her sister Josephine Campise. She is survived by her three (3) sons – Michael and his wife Rainy (Cocoa, FL), Patrick and his wife Debra, and Mark and his wife Teresa (Plano, TX); 11 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren (Emerson and Cooper); her brothers Carlo Campise (Darlene) and Sam Campise (Judi), and her baby sister Trina. Numerous nieces and nephews will remember their Aunt Mary with much love and fond memories.
The family wishes to thank all of the family, friends, and caretakers that helped Mary during the last months of her life. Their support has been invaluable to her family members, and allowed her to remain living independently in her home until the past month.
Thanks be to God for the blessing and impact that Mary had in each of our lives.
