Badlees share their sadness – A time for every purpose under heaven


Marisa Ann (Palladino) Donati


It is with much sadness that the Badlees share this following announcement with family, friends and fans:

Marisa Ann (Palladino) Donati, 40 year old sister of Badlees’ lead singer Pete Palladino, daughter of  Joann and Tony Palladino and wife of David Donati, passed away yesterday (Monday) morning after a challenging 10 year battle with cancer.  She was a graduate of Susquehanna University.

Please join all of us in expressing our deepest condolences to the Palladino & Donati Families.

Over the last 3 months, Marisa had been undergoing a new, very aggressive treatment to rid her of the cancer. Unfortunately, the cancer did not respond. Marisa was a woman of courage and hope. Her family, friends and her kitties will miss her immensely.

The funeral service will take place Monday, Nov 29 at 11am at:

Most Blessed Sacrament RC Church
787 Franklin Lakes Rd
Franklin Lakes, NJ 07417

Marisa’s husband David has asked that in lieu of flowers a donation can be made to:  

Susan G. Komen For The Cure

Book of Memories can be found here:

On Saturday, November 27th the Badlees are slated to play the Front Street Station in Northumberland.  Needless to say, Pete will not be performing at this time.  The show will be modified to reflect Pete’s absence. Bandmate Bret Alexander will sing lead vocals for this performance. The Badlees will still be joined on the bill by Pan.a.ce.a, Lemongelli and Eva Katherine.

There will be a large card passed around the club that evening for those who wish to sign it.  Ron (the drummer) will deliver the card to Pete and family members on Sunday.

The band will issue a special newsletter tomorrow (Wednesday) to friends and fans.  We will share that newsletter with everyone at that time.

We send our heartfelt condolences to Pete, his wife Michelle and their entire family.

Marisa will be sorely missed by all.
