Obituary of Marianne Dennig
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marianne Dennig, who passed away on March 10th, 2023, at Merry Heart Nursing Home in Succasunna, New Jersey, with her family by her side.
Marianne was born in September of 1940 to Charles and Eleanor Cervenka in Newark, New Jersey. She was a great student and attended Weequahic High School before continuing her education at Clara Maass School of Nursing. After earning her nursing degree, she had a successful career helping many and worked at Clara Maass Memorial Hospital in Belleville, the Immediate Medical Care Center in Parsippany and ending her career at St. Mary’s school in Denville. She helped so many patients through the years and cared for each one of them with kindness and compassion.
Marianne raised three wonderful children, though she was a mom to many. Hers was a home filled with neighborhood kids and friends of her children. She enjoyed playing tennis at the former Mountain Lakes Racquet Club and also bowled in many leagues including the Riverview PTA League. When they were younger, she loved to take her grandchildren to the Morris Museum, Northlandz, Turtle Back Zoo and other day trips when she watched them. She cherished her solo trips out to Tanque Verde Ranch in Arizona to ride horses and enjoy the cowgirl life! She tended her gardens and sang to her birds and could often be found on her back deck with binoculars in hand searching the woods for those that sang back to her. She loved to read and made many trips to the Denville Library where she enjoyed reading her fiction and murder mystery stories. Later on in life, she cherished her walks around Muriel Hepner Nature Park in Denville, NJ with her granddaughter, Samantha. She also loved her trips throughout the country with the Thunderbird Club and her dear friend, Walter. Marianne was a beautiful soul who was called from life too soon, but she will be remembered forever as a kind and loving friend to everyone.
Though her passing brings us great sorrow, we take comfort in knowing that Marianne is reunited in paradise with those who passed before her: her son, Scott Raymond, her best friend Holly Klein, and her brother-in-law, Sam Giuffrida. Those she leaves behind are now tasked with the honor of carrying on her memory and living the type of life that she modeled for us all through both words and actions. Her survivors include her children, Laura Raccioppi (Joseph), Keith Dennig (Deborah), her grandchildren, Kyle Scerbo, Tyler Scerbo, Samantha Dennig, Connor Watson, Colin Watson, her sister, Carol Giuffrida Swinburne (Ralph) and her daughter-in-law, Cindy Voskian, and her nephew, Michael Giuffrida (Elizabeth) and niece, Carolyn Henderson (Bruce).
