Marie was born on Sept. 3, 1929, in Youngstown, a daughter of the late Joseph and Evelyn (Lucente) Peachock.

Besides her parents and a sister, Adeline Heidinger, she was preceded in death by her husband and best friend, the late Joseph Lenefonte Sr., who passed on May 28, 1997, after 49 blissful years together.
The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the wonderful nursing staff at Grace Hospice with a special thanks to Victoria, Shayla, and Mindy. They also are forever grateful to Marie's best friends and caregiver, Jessica Bacha and Lydia Kozak, for all the selfless love and support they gave Marie during her time of need.
