Millicent “Patti” Marescalco

September 17, 1930 – January 12, 2024 

Millicent (Patti) Marescalco, age 93 of Omaha, NE, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her children on January 12, 2024.

As one of seven children, Patti was born on September 17th, 1930, and was raised in Omaha, NE.

Patti began an early career as an Au Pair and later worked at World Insurance.  She met Frank Marescalco on a double date with her twin sister Mildred.  Patti and Frank were married in 1949.  They lived in only one home for over 70 years.   Patti and Frank raised seven children.  Patti was a hard worker, meticulous housekeeper, seamstress and creative force.  She taught her girls to sew at an early age.  Her love of quilting, baking, gardening and building and furnishing dollhouses were her passions along with the collection of countless antiques.  Four of Patti’s hand-stitched quilts are registered with the Nebraska Quilt Project.

Patti was preceded by her father and mother, Albert and Mildred Glup; brothers Dale and Daniel, and her husband of 70 years, Frank J. Marescalco.

She is survived by her twin sister Mildred (Babe) Petrashek (Pete), and sisters Alberta Latimer, Shirley Huse and Bernadette (Bunnie) Gronborg (Gary), her daughters, Rita (Bob) Ford, Theresa (John) Kudlacz, Gina (Tom) Richards, Pattye (Joe) Gulizia, and sons, Mike, Frank, and Chris (Michele Dudley).  Patti has 10 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren and 7 great-great grandchildren, as well as a special cousin, Randy Marescalco.  Close friends include Bob Nolan, Deb Jorgensen, Dr. Bill and Claire Haire, Tom and Jane LaHood, Don and Glenda Sears, Dr. Bill and Bernie Bresnahan, and Joyce Marasco; many cousins, nieces and nephews. Of particular note, Patti was cared for at home by 3 wonderful people, Anna Fleming, Edile Langa and Sarah Hanry Miller.  The family will be forever grateful for their kindness and love.

Family will receive friends Thursday, January 25th, from 5-7PM at West Center Chapel with Rosary at 7PM.

    To The Marescalco Family,

    My deepest condolences on the loss of your mother and grandmother. I will never look at a blizzard again without thinking it is actually “Charlie’s Angels” and when ever my “soul needs soothing”, I will go to my nearest thrift store and look for a treasure. It was a lovely service for the prettiest lady. All my thoughts, prayers and Gods blessings.
    Love, Ninette Olivo-Exline

    My condolences
