Michele, very sorry to hear about your mom. I remember her and your dad from the years that I lived across to alley from you guys. Especially remember walking to and from the train when you, your dad, and I worked in Pittsburgh. Your mom always took the time to speak to both Elaine and I when we also lived across the alley but up a few houses. I'll just bet your mom and dad are dancing a jig right about now. God bless you...

Michele, my deepest sympathy to you and your family. I still remember when you first came to work for Framesi and I went to your home, there was Elsie, she lit all these candles as she was upset with you. So many years ago. We will miss all your stories of your Mom. I know that you will miss her dearly, but she will always be in your heart. May she rest in peace. Love ya !

Our deepest sympathies. I adored Aunt Elsie and loved seeing her and chatting with her. She and my late grandmother were good friends and were active in Italian social organizations in Monaca back in the day. I will always remember her fondly. She is in our thoughts and prayers. Our deepest condolences to the family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Shelly, Mike, Ashley & Brian. I always will remember my Aunt Elsie as the spunky and fiery woman that she was. Never will I be able to see plastic furniture covering and not think of her! Love you all, Angel

My heart aches for all of you on the loss of such a kind & loving mother, grandmother & friend. She was like family to my Aunt Vicky & me. I will never forget all the fun times we shared with her. The friendship she shared with Vicky was heart warming & remarkable. They shared years of breakfast chats & I truly believe they will meet again accompanied by all their loved ones.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.
