Marlene Ricchuito, 86, of Titusville, died on Friday, November 30, 2018. Marlene was born in New Kensington, Pennsylvania on November 22, 1932 to her parents Fred and Florence Krause. She was a passionate educator of special-needs students for most of her life. She went above-and-beyond the call for the children that she taught, taking them to doctors’ appointments, and even sometimes babysitting them. Marlene was a big fan of visiting the Parrish Fitness Gym, exercising there at least three days a week most of the time. She loved her family dearly, and in turn was beloved by all who knew her. Even her handyman called her “Mom.”
Marlene is survived by her daughter Susan Ricchuito of Mims; her daughter Marie Skinner (John) of Mims; her daughter Marsie Kirchhoff (Michael) of Gainesville, Georgia; her daughter Carol Johnson of Waynesboro, Tennessee; her six grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Marlene is preceded in death by her husband Domenic Ricchuito. Condolences can be sent to www.northbrevardfuneralhome.com.
