Marion R. (Cardaleen) Galante –  a lifelong resident of Woburn, passed away, peacefully, December 30th, 2020 after a short illness. Marion celebrated her 100th birthday in August and was the beloved wife of the late N. Albert Galante, whom she was married for 75 wonderful years.

Born August 29, 1920 in Woburn, Marion was a daughter of the late Anthony Cardaleen and Josephine (Cappucio) Cardaleen. She attended Woburn Schools, graduating from Woburn High School and later from Bryant and Stratton Business School of Boston.

Marion was a devoted member of St Anthony’s Parish in Woburn, assisting with many of the church activities for many years.

Marion worked in the business sector her entire life, retiring after many years with the Hartnett Company of Woburn.  She then gladly volunteered her time with the Police Department, St. Anthony’s Parish, the Senior Center in North Woburn and many other community activities.   Her kindness and generosity were felt by all.

She and her late husband enjoyed dancing, camping with family and traveling with their many friends and family throughout the United States and abroad.

 An inspiring centenarian, she was happiest spending time with her loving family, cooking, reading and maintaining her home.  She was a very active participant in her children and grandchildren’s lives.  She had a thirst for knowledge, and even at 100 years of age she still enjoyed reading the daily newspaper and was very interested in current events.  Marion met many people in her lifetime who became lifelong friends who she always remembered with cards and notes.

Marion was affectionately known as ‘’Gram” to everyone who knew her and will be deeply missed by all who were blessed to know her.

    Aunt Marion was one of the most important people in my life. She was non-judgemenal, kind and empathic to all. Offering unconditional love, she gave me a safe harbor. My father, Paul Cardaleen, loved her, and said, they were the best of friends. She will be with me forever.

    My heart is broken with the news of Marion passing. I will miss her lovely cards, letters & pictures she sent me over the years of our family. I was so happy to get to see her several years ago when I made it home to visit. May she RIP she was such a wonderful woman and was so full of knowledge of our family. I will always think of you and our phone calls. Deborah Bruno Wheeler
