Maria Bifulco, 82
PORTLAND - Maria Bifulco, of Portland, passed away on March 3, 2018. Maria was born on Dec. 15, 1935, to Angelo Ruotolo and Maria Giovanna (Nappi), in Camposano, Italy. In 1954, Maria married Antonio Bifulco, who was her loving husband for 59 years. In 1958, she courageously ventured to America in hopes of creating a better life for her family. She accomplished that and so much more.
Maria worked tirelessly at Fairchild for 25 years. Although she finished only the third grade in Italy, that did not stop her from being one of the most productive clippers that they had. She loved to cook for her family, took pride in a clean house, and loved to bargain shop. Maria's constant passions throughout her life were love of family and friends.
She was a fierce friend and confidant and was loved by all.
Maria was predeceased by her husband, Antonio. She is survived by her son, Leo, and wife, Cheryl; and her daughter, Lena Brooks, and husband, Brian. Her six grandchildren, Antonio, Eileen Marie, Andrew, Alexandra (fiancé Nick), Madeline (husband Nat) and Spencer, brought their Nanny great pride and joy. She is also survived by a sister, Vincenza Riccardo, of Cimitile, Italy; and brother, Giuseppe Ruotolo, and wife, Assunta, of Portland.
The family wishes to thank friends and loved ones for their prayers and support.
