Marie Rose Bennett (née Di Giuro) was born on December 24, 1936 in Los Angeles, to Guy and Carmela Di Giuro. She had one sibling, her younger brother Michael. Marie grew up and attended school in her birth city, graduating from Fremont High School in 1955.

She married Herman Bennett the following year, and over the course of their ten-year marriage gave birth to three sons, Guy, Mark, and Chris. Following their divorce, Marie raised the children on her own with the support of her parents. She met her life partner, John Desatoff, at this time; they were together for more than 40 years when he passed away in 2014.

Marie loved music, dancing, food and family. At parties and social gatherings she was typically among the first guests to arrive and the last to leave. All who knew and loved her mourn her passing.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her son Mark, and her partner, and is survived by her brother Michael (Edithe), sons Guy and Chris, and granddaughter Milena.
