Rev. Mary G. Sisti, 85, a Reiki practitioner and devout Christian, died Sunday at Staten Island University Hospital in Ocean Breeze.

Born Mary Capriulo in Manhattan, she moved to Brooklyn as a child. She moved to Huguenot seven years ago.

Rev. Sisti worked at the Angel Guardian Home, an orphanage, in Brooklyn, before retiring about fifteen years ago. In the late 1990s she became a nondenominational reverend, and began practicing Reiki, a Japanese technique to reduce stress and promote healing.

She wanted to be remembered as a loving, true Christian, who depended on God for all her decisions, said her daughter, Maria Bulding.

"She loved life and cared endlessly for others above herself," Mrs. Bulding said, adding her mother was loved by all who knew her.

Her husband of nineteen years, Michael, died in 1978.

Surviving, in addition to her daughter, Maria, are her son, John Sisti, and two grandchildren.

The funeral will be held tomorrow from the John Vincent Scalia Home for Funerals, Eltingville, with a Mass at 11:45 a.m. in St. Thomas the Apostle R.C. Church, Pleasant Plains.
Burial will follow in St. John's Cemetery, Queens.
