Rosina J. Melchiorre, 86, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at Pittsburgh’s UPMC Presbyterian Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

Rosina was born in New Castle on September 16, 1932, a daughter of the late Joseph and Anna Greco Coiro.

Rosina shared nearly sixty one yers of marriage with her loving and devoted husband, Joseph L. Melchiorre who she married on May 3, 1958.

Rosina had worked as a finance clerk for the City of New Castle for twenty seven years before she retired.

She led an exemplary life centered on her Catholic faith, love of family and strength of character. Rosina had an unwavering faith in God; she was strongly dedicated to the church and regularly attended Mass throughout her entire life. She spent countless hours volunteering at Saint Camillus Parish and held a special devotion to the Blessed Mother, to the protection of the unborn and to the poor. Rosina was blessed with a large and loving family; her kindness, patience and generosity knew no bounds. She immersed herself in her family and especially loved doting on her grandchildren. She maintained close relationships with her family members and friends and made it a priority to attend activities and events marking special times in their lives. She was happiest when surrounded by those she loved. Bringing tremendous joy to her family and friends, she served as an absolute inspiration to all. As the true matriarch of her extended family, Rosina served as a wise and loving role model for her numerous nieces, nephews and cousins who viewed her as one of the kindest, sweetest people in their lives. She was a woman of unconditional love. Her family and friends will dearly miss her soft-spoken gentleness, her faith driven guidance and her steadfast support.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her children, Lori Melchiorre, Joe (Johnna) Melchiorre and Amy (William) Edwards, grandchildren, Gabrielle, Maria, Vincent, Dominic, Joseph, Mia and Elaina and great-grandson Jace and one sister, Annette Doran.

In addition to parents, Rosina was preceded in death by a sister Madeline Betts and a brother Alfred Coiro.

Visitation will be on Friday 4:00 p.m. -7:00 p.m. at the Ed & Don DeCarbo Funeral Home and Crematory, 3000 Wilmington Road.

A procession will leave the funeral home on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. for a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Camillus Church at 10:00 a.m. The Very Rev. Father Philip Farrell will officiate.

Burial will be in Parkside Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to People Concerned for the Unborn Child, New Castle Chapter, P.O. Box 7723, New Castle, Pa. 16107.
