Eugenia F Aiello Obituary

Eugenia Frances Aiello (née Maruccio) in her 101st year on this earth chose to forgo all but comfort measures and walked her own path toward heaven's light on Saturday, May 18, 2024.


Born in Pittsburgh in 1923, she grew up in East Liberty graduating from Westinghouse High School. Eugenia remained in East Liberty and started her family. In the mid 1960's she moved to Whitehall spending 55 years there. Just prior to COVID, she moved into an apartment at Providence Point in Scott Township.


Known to family and friends as Jennie or Mom, she was the oldest member of the Maruccio family to date and celebrated her 100th birthday last September in the company of family and friends, who enjoyed good food, cake and cookies and good music.


After waiting for him to return from WWII, Jennie was married to Guirino Louis Aiello, the man of her dreams for 53 years. When she saw heaven's light, it is a certainty that she was met by her loving husband Guirino, who has been waiting almost 24 years for the love of his life to join him. “TOGETHER FOREVER”


Jennie is predeceased by her parents (Antonino and Luigia Asturi Maruccio), her seven adult sibling and their spouses (Antionette and Dominic DeRenzo, Catherine and William Weidman, Concetta and Bruno DeCaria, Philip and Elizabeth Maruccio, Louise and Lloyd Misheck, Clara and John Romeo, Angeline and Raymond Visconti) and three infant siblings. Jennie is survived by many nieces and nephews and their families. Jennie will be missed by many dear friends and neighbors.


Mourning Jennie's passing is her favorite daughter, Bobbie. Although NEVER letting Bobbie win an argument, somehow they made it all work and lived together for most of Bobbie’s life. Deeply devoted to each other and both extremely headstrong, they could be compared to water and oil more than peanut butter and jelly but, their bond was deep.


Jennie was known for her fabulous cooking and delicious baking. Everyone loved the biscotti she made and she shared her recipe freely with anyone who asked. At Christmas time she would prepare trays of assorted cookies and pass them out to everyone she saw. She expected a tidy home, with everything in its place. Jennie achieved this easily because Bobbie learned to toe the line very early in life and reminded mom often that it wouldn’t be that easy if there was a house full of kids.


But a house full of kids made her extremely happy. Jennie encouraged Bobbie to make friends and loved to welcome all of them into her home. Jennie enjoyed being with friends to play bingo or dominos. She was very lucky at both, but never turned that luck into big lottery wins.


Bobbie wishes to thank Gallagher Home Health Care and staff (Jamie, Cindy, Jen, Otto and Sharon) for the support over the last couple of years, and Gallagher Hospice ( Ann, Valerie, Beth and Jonathan) for their excellent care of Jennie in her final days. The Providence Point skilled nursing staff on the third floor did so much to make Jennie feel loved. Your many kindnesses will never be forgotten. A very special thanks to family and friends for calling or dropping by with soup, chili or a variety of sweet treats.


Jennie's last days were filled with visits and phone calls from family and friends. Because of this, she saw no need for a typical viewing and funeral service. Interment was at Jefferson Memorial Cemetery Pleasant Hills, with Bobbie in attendance graveside.


In lieu of flowers or charitable contributions, you can honor Jennie best by being kind to each other and loving as if today is your last day. NEVER miss the chance to say I LOVE YOU.
