Theresa Marie (DeLoss) Perrotto

MEADVILLE — Theresa Marie (DeLoss) Perrotto, 96, of Meadville, passed into the loving arms of our Heavenly Father on Monday, May 5, 2014, at Wesbury United Methodist Community.

Theresa was born on Feb. 9, 1918, in Meadville, to immigrant parents, Joseph “Giuseppe” and Concetta (Chieffo) DeLoss “Dellosso,” who came from Bagnoli Irpino, a providence of Avellino in the Naples region of Italy.

Theresa joined the Catholic Daughters of the Americas in 1940, and celebrated a 74-year membership. She was a member of St. Brigid Roman Catholic Church where she served as an Eucharistic minister and catechist for many years. She was also a member of the Altar Rosary Society. When she was a member of St. Mary Church, she served as an organist and director of the Girl’s Church Choir.

She was also an active member of the Meadville Women’s Club and the Reale Club for 84 years. Being one of the original school crossing guards for the city of Meadville brought Theresa many wonderful memories. She enjoyed cooking, baking, reading and bringing joy to others through her piano and organ music. She was devoted to her entire family, and her strong Christian faith filled her days as she brought music to the infirmed in nursing homes, and participated in the preparation of bereavement dinners and masses.

On Sept. 10, 1979, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Joseph Lawrence Perrotto, co-owner, with his brother, James, of a local grocery store, “Joe’s Superette.” Theresa and Joe were married on Sept. 9, 1940, and celebrated 39 years together. Her deceased brothers include John, Michael, Alphanso and Anthony DeLoss as well as infant brothers Louis, Harry and Joseph DeLoss.

Her memory will be cherished by her two sons, Dr. Joseph Perrotto and his wife, Marguerite, of Westwood, Mass., and James Perrotto and his wife, Carol, of Erie; granddaughters, Karen Moses and her husband, Scott, and their children, Christian, Hannah and Paul, of Port Allegany, and Teresa Butler and Eddy Frances will treasure the moments they had with her; her two grandsons, Joseph Perrotto and his wife, Emily, and their children, William and Elena, of Colorado, and Dr. John Perrotto and his wife, Barbara, and their children, Elle and Cole of Florida; along with a nephew, Joe DeLoss and his wife Rose; two nieces, Roslyn Mullen, Kathy Mosbacher and her husband, Ron; her dear friend, Madeline Simonetta; and many loving nieces, nephews and godchildren will all miss her presence in their lives.

Family and friends are invited to call on Wednesday from 1 to 6 p.m. at Stephen P. Mizner Funeral Home & Cremation Services Inc., 404 Chestnut St., Meadville, where a Catholic Daughters of the Americas service will be held at 3 and a scripture service will be held at 4:15.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1 p.m. on Thursday at St. Brigid Roman Catholic Church, 383 Arch St., Meadville, with Fr. Johnathan Schmolt, pastor of St. Brigid, as celebrant.

Theresa will be laid to rest next to her husband, Joseph, in St. Brigid Cemetery, West Mead Township.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, Tenn. 38105; or a charity of the donor’s choice.
