Marjorie "Cookie" Pecorella Obituary

Marjorie “Cookie” Irene Pecorella of Pine Plains, NY left this world too soon on October 3, 2023, at the age of 71 at Vassar Hospital in Poughkeepsie, NY.  During her final moments she was surrounded by family and her husband of 50 years was by her side.

She was born to Raymond and Joan Pearsall on May 23, 1952, in Oceanside, NY and was a graduate of Lynbrook High School.   In the spring of 1967 she met her future husband, Bruce, and on August 18, 1973, they were married in Valley Stream, NY.  Shortly after that they started a family and relocated to Pine Plains, NY where they raised three children.  

She was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.  Cookie loved spending time in the kitchen, creating delicious meals for her family and friends and was especially known for her NY Cheesecakes. People would gather around her kitchen table for coffee and desserts while sharing the latest stories and laughs. She was always there for her kids as they were involved in many activities growing up.  She retired from Pine Plains Central School where she loved working and developed lasting friendships.  For years she ran the Pine Plains Ski Club at Catamount and worked at the Dutchess County Fair up on Livestock Hill.  She was passionate about the Pine Plains FFA and was involved as an Ag Advisory Board Member up until her call home to heaven.

 She is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Bruce; children: Bruce (Christina) of Scriba, NY, Mike (Maureen) of Lambertville, MI, and Jaclyn (TJ) of Pine Plains, NY; grandchildren: Savannah, Brucie, Brandon, Evan, Daniel, Greyson, and Caroline along with two sisters: Shirley and Frances and was a beloved aunt to Amy and Robert.  Additionally, she leaves behind her two cherished fur baby Pugs: Roscoe and Daisy.  She was preceded in death by her father Raymond, her mother Joan, her sister Diane, and brothers Raymond and John.
