Belva DeMarco



Belva DeMarco, 84, died peacefully on December 19, 2020 with her daughter Shaula by her side.


She was born on December 15, 1936 in Wadley, Ga. She was married to Louis DeMarco of Hammonton who preceded her in death. She was a loving mother and will be missed every day. She had that southern charm and loved to laugh. Belva was known for her wonderful dinner parties.


Surviving are her two daughters, Venus DeMarco and Shaula Cognetti Toxey and a son-in-law, Andy Toxey who all reside in Florida; her sister, Shelva Sherrod; her two grandchildren, Jade Mukri and Derek Cognetti; and her four great-grandchildren along with many nieces and nephews.


Belva loved animals so in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Woof Love Animal Rescue at 14 Conrad Ave, Collingswood NJ 08108 Attn: Rose Hamilton.
