Obituary for Mary Louise Gentempo (nee Vento)

Mary Louise  Gentempo (nee Vento)
Mary Louise Gentempo (nee Vento), 91, heard the voice of Jesus and was welcomed into his open arms on Friday April 12, 2024.

Born October 29, 1932 in Houston, Texas, she was preceded in death by her Parents, Charles and Anna (Schiro) Vento and a daughter, Mary Margaret. Cherishing her memory are her children: Joseph (Denise), Charles(Ina), Peter (Rachel), Mary Beth (Billy), Angela (Nicky), Edward, Allen and Gina; fourteen grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, her brother Carl (Mary Rose), and her sister, Theresa, an identical twin with whom she shared a particularly strong bond. During their lives, they shared life experiences and had a telepathic connection even when miles apart. The sisters attended the same classes at Holy Name and Incarnate Word, traveled together to all the major Marian worldwide shrines, and even married brothers fostering a close-knit family of Italian American cousins that share in our memories. Mary touched the heart and soul of everyone she met with a legacy of love for family, Italian- American heritage, Roman Catholic faith with special devotion to our Blessed Mother and St. Joseph and above all love for her Lord and Savior. We, her children, are grateful that God gave this wonderful person to us as our Mother, showering us with love and the foundation of Faith. We are forever blessed to be her sons and daughters.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday evening, April 23, 2024 from 5:00 until 8:00pm with a Rosary being recited at 6:00pm in the Chapel of SouthPark Funeral Home. The Funeral Mass will be on Wednesday, April 24, 2024 at 10:00am at St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church, 10727 Hartsook Drive, Houston 77034. Burial will follow at SouthPark Cemetery, 1310 N. Main St, Pearland, 77581.
