It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Maryann Rose Folino on November 5, 2023 in her daughter's home surrounded by family at the venerable age of 77. Maryann was born on September 21, 1946, in Union City, New Jersey, to Anthony Roy Folino and Paula Joan Kshimetski-Galatolo. Maryann grew up and lived in New York until 1977 and then moved to Rio Rancho NM where she raised her family. Maryann's journey through life was marked by her devotion to her children, caring for her elderly parents, the Dallas Cowboys, her love of music and her passion for her career in real estate. She spent over two decades as a real estate agent, dedicated to finding the perfect home for each of her clients. Her kindness and generosity knew no bounds, and her most treasured legacy is the loving family she nurtured and adored. Sadly, Maryann was preceded in death by her son-in-law Terry Harwood, her mother Paula Galatolo, her father Anthony Folino, her spouse Scott D Forston, and her first husband Richard J Lipari. She leaves behind a cherished family, including her brother, Anthony Folino and sister Terry Smith of Arizona; her daughters Anita Harwood of Corrales, NM, and Dianna Montrose of Albuquerque, NM; her sons Richard Lipari (wife Julie) of Madbury, NH, and Joseph Lipari of Shoreline, WA. Maryann's spirit lives on in her eight beloved grandchildren—Richard (wife Sarah), Zachary, Jessica (wife Amanda), Amanda (husband Tyler), Angelin, Abigail, Mia, and Grace—and four great-grandchildren—Sonya, Cain, Runa, and Nicolo.
