Maryann Bruno, age 87, of Poughkeepsie, New York and Dania Beach, Florida, passed away peacefully on September 20, 2020 in Lake Worth, Florida.
Maryann was born in the Bronx, New York on November 3, 1932, the daughter of Angelo and Catherine (Sacco) Mascola. Maryann is predeceased by her husband, Carmine Bruno (2015) and her sister, Catherine Russo (2002).
In 1967, Maryann joined the Vassar College community as an administrator in the Art Department. In 1982, Maryann graduated With Distinction from Vassar College with a degree in English/Creative Writing. Upon graduation, Maryann served at Vassar as the college’s Director of Summer Programs for highly gifted and talented rising high-school juniors in the U.S. and abroad until her retirement in 2000. Along with Elizabeth A. Daniels, Maryann co-authored a book on the history of Vassar College published by the Arcadia Press in 2001. For many years, Maryann oversaw “The Girl’s Leadership Workshop” at Val-Kill, the home of Eleanor Roosevelt, and she was actively involved in preservation efforts at the Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park, New York.
Maryann is survived by her two sons and their spouses, Christopher and Jane Bruno of Fairfax, Virginia, and Laurence and Stacey Bruno of Phoenix, Arizona. Maryann was a devoted grandmother to Christopher, Matthew, Katherine, Thomas and Lauren, and a doting great grandmother to her great grandson Declan Bruno. She is also survived by her uncle, Thomas Sacco, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
Maryann will be forever adored for her never-ending support and devotion to family, intellectual curiosity, poet’s eye and fearless energy. She will be sorely missed.

Such a nice lady. Maryann was always one of my most favorite neighbors. Most of the time we would meet when I was walking my dogs and she was out getting her paper. There was always time for a chat about a film or play that one of us had seen and would recommend to the other (or not!). Of course, favorite restaurants were also in order. She sometimes put me to shame with her broad knowledge of things!
My deepest sympathy,
Pete Bergamo

Our deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to your mother and grandmother. Be comforted by the knowledge that she is now at peace with her beloved husband, Carmine, in the hands of our Lord. Pam knew Maryann through the Summer programs at Vassar. We are also acquainted through the Spano family, James, Grace, Jimmy, and Susan, our niece with whom we participated at several family events.

Cousin Maryann is such a beloved member of our family. We have so many cherished memories of times spent together. We will forever welcome the fall and pick apples with thoughts of her and the way she arranged the perfect day with a trip to the orchard, buying crafts and then sharing a dinner that she prepared. She always made each of us feel so important and had a sincere interest in our everyday lives . Maryann's love for her family and friends was evident in everything she did. We love her and miss her so very much and are comforted to know that she and our mother, Aunt Irene, are together in heaven now .

Dear Chris, Larry. and family. I will miss your mom. She always had a smile and was sooo proud of her boys. She often shared how much she loved it when her grandson Christopher came to visit. We often talked about Vassar and how my mom and your dad died on the same day. My love and prays go out to you and your family. My deepest and most sincere condolences. Debra Gersh McGarvey
