The Carbone family and staff and Mangini family are deeply saddened by the loss of Mary Ann Mangini. Mary Ann was the statuesque beautiful blonde who welcomed patrons to Carbone’s for over 50 years. During that time she has made friends with many of the guests whom she talked to and shared many stories with. Mary Ann has led a well traveled life, living in California, Alaska, New Mexico, and Hawaii when she visited her daughter Diane. Mary Ann’s children also helped us at the restaurant. Her son Dennis was a bartender for many years, and his twin Diane was a server. Her husband, Tony (Taw), also worked for the Mangini family business, Crabtree Oil, for many years as a driver. Mary Ann was so much more than an employee, she was a sister-in-law, an aunt, a friend, and a truly special person. Her passing leaves an emptiness in our hearts.
