Gloria P. (DeMarco) Cercone

Of Waltham, passed away peacefully in the comfort and care of her son’s home on Wednesday morning, May 19, 2021, to be reunited with her beloved husband just several months after his passing in February. She was 87 years old.

Born on March 29, 1934 in Waltham; she was the daughter of the late Salvatore and Delia (Lupo) DeMarco; Gloria was born, raised and educated in Waltham.

A graduate of Waltham High School Class of 1951, Gloria had been employed as a bookkeeper at Gardencrest Apartments in Waltham for 34 years before her retirement from Home Properties.

She married the love of her life, Nicholas R. Cercone, in 1958 and raised her family in Waltham.

Gloria was a lifelong member of the Waltham Garden Club but her true passion was spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was an outstanding cook, and also enjoyed baking, playing cards, and watching the Red Sox. Gloria also loved her lunch dates with her sister JoAnne and could be spotted at various restaurants and shops in Waltham and beyond.

She is predeceased by her beloved husband Nicholas R. “Nick” Cercone on February 2, 2021.

Gloria is survived by her loving & devoted children; Lynn Camelio of Miami, FL; Nicholas R. “Nicky” Cercone, Jr. and his wife Suzanne (Trumbour) of Waltham; John Cercone of Waltham; Peter Cercone and his wife Cindy (LaForest) of Stow; Marc Cercone of Marlborough; and Cara Cercone and her life partner Tina Gentile of Marlborough; her cherished grandchildren Salvatore, Maria, Nicholas III, Zachary, Matthew, John Jr. “Jack”, Bridget, Alexandra, Shaye, Jennifer, Emily, and Lindsay; her adoring great grandchildren Isabelle, John “Jack”, Hadley, Taeo, and Luca; and her dear sisters JoAnne Gallitano and her husband George of Waltham and Barbara Mangini and her husband Victor of Gardner. In addition, she is survived by many nieces, nephews, and her extended family who loved her dearly.

So sorry to the family for this loss. My prayers and thoughts to the family! Your mom was just always, so well kept in her appearance and mannerisms. She always had time to stop and talk . She uses to stop and visit me on the keno booth at the Chateau, place her daily numbers, talk about her children. She always was proud of her children she raised. Alway came to say hello when your family had a function in the green room. God Bless,
