Mary A. Conforti of Riverhead died Feb 14, 2017 at Sunrise Manor in Bay Shore. She was 82 years old.
She was born Sept. 5, 1934 in the Bronx to Michael and Angelina Vitacco.
She graduated from Walton High School. She owned the Bridge Army Navy store in Flanders. Her family said she loved every minute of owning the store because “it was a store for everyone.” Because she loved the store so much, she did a great job running it, turning it into an unusually good shop. In her spare time, she enjoyed the beach and sewing.
Predeceased by her son John in 2008, she is survived by her husband Ralph of Riverhead.
The family will receive visitors on Thursday, Feb. 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. at McLaughlin Heppner Funeral Home. Interment is scheduled for Feb. 17 at 10 a.m. at Calverton National Cemetery.
