Her family celebrates her passing with thanksgiving for a life well lived and an appreciation for her intense intellect, her sharp cutting edge and her passion for living. 5-star restaurants, fine clothes, a cocktail or two, were among her favorite choices in living. “Viva Marvie.”

She was the beloved daughter of the late Andrew J. Procopio Sr. and Catherine M. (Capano) Procopio; the cherished sister of Gloria Torre and Andrew J. Procopio, Jr. and his wife, Marie, all of Revere and the late Pauline Terranova, Jean Angeloni, Mary Alvino, Domenic A., Albert, Anthony, Joseph and John Procopio.
