A kind, gentle soul could be found in Marie M. DelColle 93, of Keene, NH, who passed away peacefully, early Friday morning, December 29, 2017, at the Thompson House in Brattleboro, Vermont.

Her parents, Thomas and Katherine E. (Orth) Cantwell, proudly welcomed their daughter into the world on November 21, 1924, Staten Island, New York.

Marie was a caring person. She especially enjoyed her responsibilities for 21 years as a special needs assistant with the Paul B. Stevens Exceptional Student Center in Clearwater, Florida.

She will be remember for her hard-earned wisdom and insightful advice. Her love for children found her a devote support of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. Marie was also a devote Catholic.

She enjoyed watching sports, playing bingo, and she truly loved her "scratch-off's".

She will be greatly missed by many, especially her brother, John Cantwell of Medford, NJ; her many grandchildren, including Katy Robinson of Newfane, VT with whom a special bond was shared between the two; her great-grandchildren; and her nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, George P. DelColle in 1996; her daughter, Susan Herrmann; and a son, William Ohman.

At Marie's request, services and burial will be private.

For those who wish, donations may be made in Mrs. DelColle's memory to the Tribute Program of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, PO Box 1000 Dept. 142, Memphis, TN 38105
