On Monday, November 19, 2012, after a ten year battle with cancer, Ann, wife of the late Reno, had lost her fight. A loving wife, good friend, and a fantastic mother and grandmother, she will be missed. She is survived by four children, Frank Benigni, Darlene Swickline (Russell), Michele Frio (David), Glenn Benigni (Michelle); also nine grandchildren, Jessica Bowers (Matthew), Frank Benigni, Jr. (Chelsea), Benjamin Swickline (Missy), Corey Swickline (Jessica), Michael and David Frio, and Kelsey, Nicole, and Renee Benigni; and five great-grandchildren, Aaden and Avery Benigni, Micah Bowers, Emily and Abby Baum. Her life did not have a lot of worldly accomplishments, unless you look at all the little things she did for everyone who was lucky enough to be part of her life. She was a great person, always there for anyone whoever needed a mother, friend, or a great cook. Everyone will really miss her pizza and Christmas cookies. Goodbye Mom, it's going to be a lonely life without you here to help us throughout. Friends welcome Friday, 2-8 at FREYVOGEL-SLATER FUNERAL DIRECTORS, 112 Fort Couch Rd., Bethel Park (opposite Macy's South Hills Village). Prayer Service Saturday, 10 a.m. at the funeral home with interment to follow at Holy Souls Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to Family Hospice and Palliative Care, 50 Moffett St., Pgh., PA 15243.
