Edie Marino is the longtime wife of U.S Representative, Tom Marino. Her hubby of over four decades represents Pennsylvania’s 10th congressional district.
Tom is a lawyer, former District Attorney for Lycoming County, and a former United States Attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. He was elected in 2010 after unseating a two-term Democrat incumbent.
Born Thomas Anthony Marino on August 13, 1952; the native of Pennsylvania began his career in public service in 1991. He attended Lycoming College, where he graduated magna cum laude, before completing his law degree at Dickinson School of Law. Tom spent a few years in a private legal practice.
He and wife, Edie Marino, have been hitched for the last 43-years. The two are the proud parents of two adopted children, daughter Chloe and son, Victor.
Edie and Tom were high school sweethearts before tying the knot in 1974. The two wedded following their high school graduation.
Over the years, the two have faced their ups and downs –that would include three cancer stints for Tom Marino –but ultimately they have remained together.
In 2000, while serving as district attorney, Tom was diagnosed with kidney cancer. He was successfully operated at the time. Nine years later the disease returned and cost him his entire left kidney.
Throughout the ordeal, Edie Marino stayed by her husband’s side. The couple founded a small business called, Chloe and Company, Inc. –that makes a gourmet peanut butter fudge dessert topping. The product is named after their daughter, Chloe, who has cystic fibrosis. Part of the profits are donated to ongoing research to find a cure for this life-shortening disease.
According to social media profile, Edie’s daughter Chloe Marino is a cashier at Weis Markets and also a student at Pennsylvania College of Technology –where she studies Software Development. Victor Marino graduated high school this June.
Edie Marino is originally from Williamsport, Pennsylvania and resides with her family in Cogan Station.
