Mary Margaret Pielli

November 5, 1941 — August 14, 2022

Philadelphia, PA


Mary Margaret “Maureen” Pielli (née Dillon), age 80, of Philadelphia, PA died August 14, 2022 at home. Maureen was married to Arthur Pielli for 58 years. Arthur died on August 15, 2022 (one day after Maureen) also at home. They are survived by their 6 children, 11 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. 


Raised in Brooklyn, New York, Maureen graduated  from Immaculata High School and attended St. Vincent’s School of Nursing before marrying Arthur in 1964. In 1979, Maureen, Arthur and their 6 children moved to West Chester, PA. 


In addition to raising her 6 children, Maureen earned her BA in English Literature from West Chester University, graduating with honors. After she earned her degree, she became a dedicated and caring Social Worker. Her career included working as a Health Coordinator at Head Start, and as a Social Worker at Chester County Office of Aging, and Chester County Children & Youth. She fought hard to bring the SEIU union to the Chester County Children & Youth department and was elected Shop Steward.


Maureen loved late-night conversations with a cup of tea. She was a voracious reader and a Zumba and Yoga enthusiast. She held her Irish roots close to her heart, keeping in touch with her relatives across the pond and here in the States. She and Arthur enjoyed travel, the theater, and were excellent Bridge players. 


They were also members of the Ethical Society of Philadelphia, an organization whose members and slogan, “Deed before Creed,” they truly loved.
