STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Native Staten Islander Madalyn T. Castelucci, 64, a retired legal secretary, died yesterday in her home in Huguenot.

Born in Rosebank, she settled to Huguenot in 1977.

Ms. Castelucci was also an avid reader who loved solving the New York Times crossword puzzle. She also enjoyed traveling throughout Europe when she was younger. When she was older, she took a cruise with one of her daughters to Bermuda and she also enjoyed trips to Las Vegas.

“A wonderful mother and friend who always put her family first,” said her daughter, Christine Bottiglia.

“She was a wonderful sister, kind-hearted and would do everything and anything for anyone,” said her brother, Matthew John Castelucci.

Along with her daughter, Christine and her brother, Matthew, also surviving are three other daughters, Catherine, Elizabeth and Laura Bottiglia, and another brother, Gerard.

Madalyn was such a devoted friend and I will miss her very much. But she is looking down on all of us and especially on her four daughters who all have so much of the wonderful qualities their mother had. They were raised by her so well. She was the greatest friend a person could ever have and i was blessed for this. I will always love you friend and never will forget you and will see you someday. Gin
