After graduating from Jenkins Township High School, she started her employment as a seamstress.

A talented cook and baker, she loved to make a big Sunday supper every week. She prided herself on the spotless house and loving home she kept for her family. And she was tough and strong and stubborn and resilient. Despite many injuries and illnesses throughout her life, she persevered, reaching the ripe old age of 88. Though she had just one son, she was a mother to many. She took care of everyone she knew. She was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Patrick Chiumento; her mother, Fausta "Margaret" Colella Mitchell; and father, Joseph; brothers, Rinaldo "George," Anthony, Joseph and Charles Mitchell and Alfred Micera; and sisters, Helen Gamatoni, Mary Rossi, Josephine Alexander and an infant sister.

Township Blvd., Pittston Township. Viewing hours will be held at the funeral home from 8 to 9 a.m. Friday.
