Obituary of Marian Page Settineri

Marian L. Settineri, 82, of Amber, NY, died peacefully on June 11, 2023, surrounded by family at Upstate Medical Center.

Marian was born and raised in Syracuse, NY, where she graduated from Onondaga Valley Academy in 1958. She attended the University of Louisville on a full ride scholastic art scholarship and graduated in 1962. She earned a Master of Fine Arts from Syracuse University in 1966.

She and her husband, William J., moved to Midland, Michigan where they lived for 34 years until returning to their beloved Otisco Lake in 2000. While in Michigan, she worked from home as a freelance artist and graphic designer while raising her four boys. Marian's artwork received recognition and awards throughout the country and her series of 22 drawings entitled "The Unravelling Process" was published in 1998.

In 2005, Marian was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis for which there is no cure. Miraculously, she received a lung transplant in July 2007 at the Cleveland Clinic. With the gift of life given back to her, she thrived for nearly 16 more years, far outliving anyone's expectations.

Marian is survived by her husband of 61 years, William J. Settineri, and her sons Marc H. (Kelly) of Cortland, NY, Michael J. (Colleen) of Columbus, OH, Samuel E. (Jill) of Marshall, MI, and Joseph P. (Daniel) of Los Angeles, CA. She also leaves behind 11 grandchildren, and one great granddaughter. She was predeceased by her parents Paul E. and Cora L. Page as wellas her sister, Patricia Trendowski.
