Mary Regina Cicale
August 16, 1960 - September 13, 2022
Mary Regina Cicale died peacefully on September 13th after a long battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP). She was 62.
Born in Kingston, NY to the late Roy and Mary Elizabeth Cicale, Mary graduated from John A. Coleman High School in 1978 and lived for many years in High Falls, NY
Mary loved nature and cared deeply about all of creation, training dogs with pet-owners and sharing her own home with a number of needy dogs and cats over the years.
She was a self-taught songwriter and guitarist, who wrote and played music with passion. An original recording from the 1990s was re-mastered last year to share hope in suffering of all kinds; Mary wanted to leave her faith-filled music as a legacy to help and inspire others. Her CD is called “Metamorphosis” to signify the transformation from earthly to eternal life.
Mary is survived by two devoted sisters, Virginia “Ginny” Provost (Steve) of Hooksett, NH and Diane Rolfe (RC) of Beaufort, SC, as well as nephews Mike Provost (Stacia), Chip Provost (Jill), and James Rolfe (Lauren). She will be dearly missed by her family and many cousins and friends. An infant niece, Anne Elizabeth Provost, predeceased Mary in 1994.
The family wishes to thank Hudson Valley Hospice of Ulster County, Greg Howard and the staff of Ivy Lodge Assisted Living (Saugerties, NY) and Ms. Nadine Daley for their extraordinary kindness and compassionate support.
A funeral liturgy will be held at St. Joseph’s Church in Kingston at 10AM on Monday, September 19th. Per Mary’s wishes, there will be no calling hours. However, a luncheon gathering for family and friends will be held after interment in Mary’s memory. Arrangements are being made by Keyser Funeral Home, Kingston, NY.
