Mary "Jane" Biondillo of Cypress, Texas passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 21, 2019, at home, surrounded by her children and grandchildren. She was born, Mary Jane Pendergrasse, on November 10, 1930. While working at Weingarten's Grocery Store she met the love of her life, Santo "S.J." Biondillo. They were married for 56 years until his death on November 6, 2006

Jane was a resident of Cypress for 40 years, 23 of which she was employed by CFISD as a school bus driver. She was known respectably by her students as "Mrs. "B". 

Not only was Jane a devoted mother of 10 children, but a host of many others who were always welcomed with open arms. She always said 'the more, the merrier'!. She loved going to their football and baseball games, dance recitals, school plays, and graduations. Jane also loved having friends and family drop by any time. Her favorite saying was 'Come early and stay late'!

One of Jane's favorite things was to go visit family in Louisiana. When her husband would come home from work and say 'pack up the kids, we are going to Jeanerette!', Jane would have the kids and clothes in the car in record time!! Family was #1. Another passion that Jane had was her love of crocheting.  Until she was no longer able, she made an afghan for each of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, plus many others.
