Born in Manchester, England, Mavis was the daughter of the late Arthur and Alice Quigley Foley and sister of the late Derek Foley. She moved to America where she met her forever loving Husband Dino who together, danced the night away and were married in August, 1968. Together, they owned Prisco Pools and Spas in Yonkers, NY where you were sure to see Mavis’ beautiful, smiling face as soon as you walked in the door. Dino entered into eternal life before her in 2017 after 49 years of marriage. Along with her husband Dino, Mavis was welcomed into heaven by the loving arms of her late son, Dino Jr. who was forever in her heart.
Ever loving and devoted mother of Marco (Tracy) of Blauvelt, NY, cherished grandmother of Marco Jonas and Nate, Mavis is also survived by many dear sister-in-laws, her brother-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, her Aunt and Uncle and many friends, near and far.
