Mamie M. Criscione, 100, passed away on Friday, January 29, 2021, at the Chautauqua County Nursing and Rehab Center, Dunkirk, NY. She was born on April 5, 1920, in Portland, NY, the daughter of the late Charles (Cruciano) Milonzi and Benedetta (Manzella) Milonzi.

Mamie was married to the late Joseph F. Criscione on April 30, 1949. She was the mother of Kathleen (late Richard) Costanza of West Seneca, NY; Joanne (Anthony) Polito of Fredonia NY; and Carol (Mike) Tully of The Villages, FL. She had 5 grandchildren; Anne Marie (Dan) Faltisco, Michael (Ashlee) Costanza, Kasey (Kevin) Way, Lindsay (Jason) Spinola and Sara (Jake Alstadt) Tully. She was a great grandmother to Zavier Faltisco, Mallory Costanza, Claire Costanza, Jack Costanza, Amelia Jo Way, Gibson Way, Bowie Spinola and Chance Alstadt. She was preceded in death by her step-mother Grace (Ferrara Maioriano) Millonzi, and eight siblings: Joseph Millonzi, Fannie Milicia, Thomas Millonzi, Frank Millonzi, Anthony Millonzi, Mary Dispenza, Grace Passafiume and Babe (Philippina) Passafiume.

Mamie began working as a sales clerk at Miller’s Drug Store from 1953*-1955, When the pharmacy changes hands to Gunnard Carlson. After Gunnard’s death, the pharmacy became a gift shop owned by Gunnard’s daughter, Linda Dunn. Her career spanned 50 years.

Mamie was well-known for her baking, especially for her cuccidati cookies, for which she passed along her “secret” recipe to her daughter, Joanne. However, her greatest loves, and to her, her most precious accomplishments, were her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was so proud of all that they had achieved and the wonderful people they had become. She left them all with fond memories they will never forget.

Due to COVID-19 restriction and protocols services will be private. Memorial contributions may be made in Mamie’s honor to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Mason Funeral Home, 37 Clinton St. Westfield.
