  • Mrs. Marilyn Difatte, 70, of West Main Street, went home to be with her Heavenly Father on Sept. 17, 2012, at her residence, with her beloved family at her side.
    She was born on Nov. 23, 1941, in Queens, daughter of the late Joseph and Anne (Gorenstien) Abidor. On Oct. 10, 1981, she was united in marriage with Dominick Difatte in Babylon. Their 30-year union was filled with love and devotion.
    Family was the most important thing in the world to Marilyn. She had deep love for her family and friends. Nothing made her happier than to have her table full of people sharing in her laughter and enjoying her home cooked food. Marilyn especially enjoyed going to Turning Stone Casino.
    Marilyn is survived by her loving family: her husband, Dominick; her children, Janice Wenke and her husband, David, of Herkimer, Dwayne Heimowitz and his wife, Cathy, of Ilion, Brian Heimowitz and his wife, Jeannie, of Pensacola, Fla., Scot Heimowitz and his wife, Cindy, of Patchogue, and Diane Jones and her husband, David, of Queensbury; her grandchildren, Joshua and his wife, Amie, Sarah, Jerica and her husband, Jason, Benjamin, Krystal, Jonathan, Hannah, Maxwell, Rebecka, Victoria and L.J.; her sister, Barbara Nutt and her husband, David, of West Palm Beach, Fla.; her numerous nieces, nephews and cousins; and her two very special friends, Muffin and Buddy. She was predeceased by her son, Robert Difatte, and her sister, Elaine Gerstl.
    The family will receive relatives and friends on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the New Life Church, 337 Protection Ave., Herkimer. A religious service will follow at 3 p.m. with Associate Pastor Tom Pileggi officiating. The family asks those who will be attending the service to please wear something purple as a tribute to their mom as this was her favorite color.
    The family would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful Hospice nurses who took such good care of Marilyn.
    The family is being cared for by the Enea Family Funeral Home, 4309 Acme Rd., Ilion, John P. Lewandowski, funeral director.
