Resided in East Durham, NY
Nick and Mary were born on the same day, and spent the better part of their 68 years together.
Nick was born in Brooklyn, a son of the late Joseph and Elvira Chile Mammano. A graduate of St. John's University, he worked at the NYS Disability and Health Program for many years in NYC, and then in Albany.
An avid collector of baseball and WW II memorabilia, Nick was kind and selfless, and deeply loved by those around him.
Mary was born in Harrisburg, PA, a daughter of the late John and Opal Parton Kelly. She received a nursing degree from Elmira College. As a Registered Nurse, Mary has worked for the past 43 years in several area facilities. Her passion was working with Alzheimer’s patients and their families. She was active at the Cairo Library and Our Lady of Knock Shrine. Mary loved the clown, Emmett Kelly, Sr., collectables, circuses, elephants and Winnie the Pooh. Her family, and her grandkids were her life and her love for them was unconditional.
Nick and Mary were married August 12, 1979 and moved to East Durham in 1989. Together they were avid bowlers and well-loved in the community.
Surviving are their three children Joseph A. Mammano of Guilderland, John C. Mammano of East Durham and Catherine M. Ballone of Catskill. Mary has two sisters, Anna Mehl of East Durham and Patricia Kelly of NJ and one brother James Kelly of FL.
Nick, Mary, and their three beloved grandchildren, Jonathen, Jayden and Sophia all passed on the same day.
