Elizabeth (Betty) F. Yurisic

MEADVILLE — Elizabeth (Betty) F. Yurisic, 88, of 17888 Cussewago Road, Meadville, passed away at home on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013.

Betty enjoyed being a homemaker, making crafts, going to garage sales and baking. For many years she entered her prized cookies and fudge in the Crawford County Fair. Her homemade dishes and baked goods made every holiday extra special.

Moeller and her husband, Rainer, of Montevallo, Ala., and Mark Yurisic and his wife, Karen, of Meadville; four grandchildren, Debra L. Moeller of Duncansville, Chad W.

Funciello of Erie; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and her husband, Charles, of 34 years, Betty was preceded in death by a sister, Theresa Fera; an infant sister, Luci Funciello; and two brothers Louis Funciello and Dominick Funciello.

Family and friends are invited to call on Tuesday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. at Stephen P. Mizner Funeral Home & Cremation Services Inc., 404 Chestnut St., Meadville, where a scripture service will be conducted at 3:30 p.m.
