Margaret Carmella Desmery

August 05, 1936 ~ January 02, 2024

Margaret Carmella (Piccerillo) Desmery, 87, died peacefully after a brief illness on January 2, 2024. Born on August 5, 1936, in Roseto, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of the late Marshall Piccerillo and Mary (Malpiedo) Piccerillo, and sister of the late Concetta Genevieve (“Jay”) Fiorot.

“Baby” Margaret graduated from Bangor High School in 1954, and Easton Hospital School of Nursing in 1957. She married Dr. Martin (“Desi”) Desmery of San Nicolas, Argentina, in 1960 and had two sons, Martin and Mark. After several years in Argentina, Marge and Desi settled in Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York, where they lived until retiring to Florida in 1990.

Marge was an avid bridge player (Gold Life Master), a renowned party planner, a prodigious reader, an indifferent golfer, a loyal friend, a loving wife and mother, and a proud gramma and great-gramma. Her community volunteer activities included work for the YMCA (Newburgh, NY), the Powelton Club (Newburgh, NY), the Cornwall Hospital Ladies Auxiliary Club (Cornwall, NY), the Vero Beach Bridge Club (Vero Beach FL), and the Meadowood Golf and Country Club (Fort Pierce, FL).

Marge is survived by her husband and sons, her daughters-in-law (Diane Desmery and Kathleen Desmery), her six grandchildren (Emily Kane, Virginia Monsen, Alexander Desmery, Owen Desmery, Martin Desmery & Jude Desmery), her grandsons-in-law (Michael Kane and Kyle Monsen), and her great-granddaughter (Margot Kane), who was named in her honor. She will be lovingly remembered, and forever missed, by her friends and family.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
