Cecilia Sciortino, 103, of Charleroi, went to Heaven with our Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, December 29, 2022. She passed peacefully in her home.

She was born May 28,1919, in Charleroi, Pa. and is the wife of the late Joseph V. Sciortino Sr. of Charleroi; they married in July 1946. Joseph, her husband, predeceased her in 2002. She is the daughter of the late Harry and Pauline Pennline of Charleroi and was the last surviving member of Harry’s children.

Cecilia is a member of St Andrew the Apostle Parish, Charleroi, and is survived by her two sons and daughters-in-law, Joseph Jr. and Shirley Sciortino of Millersville, MD, and Henry and Lynn Sciortino of West Chester, PA; twelve grandchildren, Joseph V.

In addition to her parents, Cecilia was preceded in death by her siblings, Cecilia (Infant Child), Margaret ‘Helen’, Anthony ‘Tony’, Henry ‘Gouch’, Paul, Rosina ‘Rose’, and Herman.

Cecilia was a stay-at-home housewife with a passion for caring for and serving her parents, siblings, and their children. She was devoted to her family and friend’s well-being and gave generously of her time, talent, and food.

She was a devoted Catholic and followed her mother in the role of matriarch of the family and gave of herself freely and selflessly in that role. As with her mother, she was devoted to the Blessed Mother and family, which was her only priority to the end of her life.
