Their bodies were taken from the house and transferred to the medical examiner's refrigerated truck Friday afternoon.
Neighbor Irene Garcia said, "It's so sad. I used to talk with her every morning before school. She used to walk her dog all the time."
This follows the grim discovery Thursday of the bodies of two young boys, 2 and 4, who were snatched from the arms of their mother during the storm.
As the body count grows on Staten Island, Mayor Bloomberg finally decided to cancel the NYC Marathon under increasing criticism of his earlier decision to go ahead with the race. The 26.2-mile race was set to start in Staten Island and pass through Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx before finishing in Central Park.
It is unclear whether or not any attempt will be made to reschedule the race in the near future.
Meanwhile, on Staten Island, many are still without power and food and clothing drives have begun to aid those trying to weather cold temperatures.
Hoteliers are also left with a difficult situation as some of the 30,000 runners who have flown or driven to the city had reservations with Staten Island hotels. Those hotels are currently filled with residents displaced by Sandy.
"How do I tell people that have no place to go, that have no home, that have no heat that you have to leave because I need make room for someone who wants to run the marathon," said Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton Inn & Suites owner Richard Nicotra in an interview with NY1.
