Obituary of Mary Jane Rombola

Mary Jane Rombola, 86, Port St. Lucie formally from Manorville and Wantagh New York, has sadly passed away and entered her eternal resting place on Wednesday December 28th,2022 after a brief but strong battle proceeding open heart surgery. She was surrounded by her loved ones at the time of her passing. Mary Jane was born in Brooklyn on May 18th, 1936, to the late Frank and Maria Regina: alongside her brother Neil Regina, her sister Frances Addesso and her late brother Edward Regina. Mary Jane grew up in a home and a family filled with love, laughter, and knowledge that built the foundation of everything Mary Jane would soon become, surpass, and pass down to anyone who knew her. After graduating a scholar in 1954 from the Girls Commercial High School in Brooklyn, Mary Jane went on to continue and expand her love of learning, literature, and arts. Mary Jane was one of the most worldly, intelligent, and elegant people you could ever meet. She carried herself with effortless class and grace and always said that knowledge and wisdom have no end. She explored her love of reading, painting, crocheting, as well as other past times that are as endless as her and her knowledge. Soon after graduating in 1954 Mary Jane met the love of her life, Vincent Rombola. A world wind romance that soon led to their marriage in 1955. She proceeded to expand her life as a secretary for Parent Magazine on Madison Avenue in Manhattan until her whole world changed welcoming her greatest gifts; her 3 wonderful children Denise, Joseph, and Vincent Jr. She then remained home with her children until 1969 when she began working for MBS Multimode for over 30+ years as their account executive. Where she received much praise and acknowledgement for her dedication and hard work. But more than anything in her life or any of her accomplishments; Mary Janes life was and will always be her family. She continued to watch her daughter Denise and son-in-law Dave happily marry. Her son Joseph have two children. Her grandson Joseph Rombola and her granddaughter Christina Rombola. As well as her son Vincent Rombola Jr. and his wife Kearie have her granddaughter Nicole Johnson and her grandson Vincent Rombola. She even had the amazing pleasure of being able to experience her great grandchildren Kaylee and Matthew Johnson. Which all filled her life and heart more than any other lifetime experience could. Later in life Mary Jane got to retire with her husband in 1996 and they began to enjoy the most of life together. They traveled most of the east coast enjoying Lake George, Saratoga and visiting as many of Florida’s beaches as they could. Unfortunately, Mary Jane lost part of her heart too early on; her late husband Vincent Rombola who sadly passed in 2009’s life was cut too short and shortly after Mary Jane started to lose her eyesight along with it. Persevering through, she never let any obstacle stand in her way. A strong widow: she stood by her family with strength and love. And never let the thought of losing her eyesight take away her love for literature or the arts. She continued in every and any way to read and write, to see plays, to paint, her love for the beach and to encourage all around her to never let anything be taken away from you. Especially if it’s something you love. Even as she became hard of walking or hearing. Even as she fought through every battle as her heart fell ill. She was a lover… She was a fighter… She was everything amazing and great in this world. She was a light. And the world is truly dimmer without Mary Jane. But her life and her legacy will always continue through her family, her love and her passion for life. A Mass of Christian burial to Celebrate her life will be held 10:00 am on Saturday, January 7, 2023 at St. Barnabas R.C. Church, 2320 Bedford Avenue, Bellmore, NY. Burial will follow in St. Charles Cemetery/Resurrection. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Mary Jane's name to Lighthouse for the Blind.
