Marianne Chiappone

Marianne Chiappone, daughter of Mary (Scott) Chiappone and Joseph Chiappone, left the planet on July 26, 2018 with her family by her side. Her spirit remained strong as she endured health issues for three years. Marianne was born on October 12,1948 and graduated from Lockport High School in 1966.
She maintained many lifelong friendships. She eventually moved to Anna Maria Island, Florida, where she pursued her dream. She became a certified Culinary Arts Chef. She worked two jobs and raised her children while attending school.
She later moved to Hudson Valley, NY, to be near her children and grandchildren. She worked as a sous chef at a convent in New Windsor, NY, and further pursued her education at The Manhattan Institute of Integrated Nutrition, graduating with honors as a certified holistic health practitioner. She lived her life to the fullest.
She is survived by her ex-spouse, lifelong friend and father of her three children, Bobby Kronenberg; and her son, Jeremy Chiappone; daughters, Jessica Kronenberg, Jenifer (Kronenberg) Flynn, and her wife, devoted daughter-in-law, Lani Ricozzi; brother, Joseph (Cheryl) Chiappone; sister, Susanne Martin, and brother-in-law, David Martin. She has five grandchildren, Sean, Lukas and Grace Flynn. Mikayla (Zachary) Rougeaux and Arianna Chiappone; great-grandson, Ares Zander Rougeaux. Her youngest sister, Diane Chiappone, passed away seven years ago, but not before she and Marianne did some traveling out west.
Marianne left strict instructions for after her passing and those wishes were fulfilled by her children. She wanted a party with excellent food, open bar and a dance floor packed with her family and friends while her favorite rock 'n roll and blues music played. It was a celebration of her life. She will be missed by many.

Marianne came to the Convent of Saint Helena in Vails Gate, New York as our cook. She was passionate about "healthy" food at a time when not everyone was so knowledgeable about the ways that sugar substitutes and preservatives impacted our bodies. She educated us and fed us well! Marianne's spirituality was evident in everything she did and said. She was an inspiration to me in the ways she faced her own life challenges. She was a positive person, an encourager. I remember many times when she would tell me she saw angels around the convent as she came to work in the morning. We shared our prayer concerns about our families, and I know how passionately she loved her family members. I'm so gra...teful to have had that close time with Marianne on a daily basis when she worked with us. Her memory is a blessing.Read more

Mar, The world is a much better place because you touched our lives. You leave an indelible mark in our hearts. Your humor and wit helped many going through difficult times, your love and support made you best friend to many. You fought and stayed until you felt we would be ok. Thank you, your strength inspires us. I am sorry I missed the New Mexico trip...but I believe we will meet again. Namaste 🖤
