Adorista Santucci Obituary
Adorista (Fantozzi) Santucci, 96, of Arnold, passed away peacefully Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018, in her home in Arnold Manor. She was born Jan. 16, 1922, in Roccacinquemiglia, Abbruzzi, Italy to the late Achille and Annamaria (D'Achille) Fantozzi. She moved with her family to Arnold in May 1958, where she lived the rest of her life. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Sigismondo; a daughter, Mirella Noble; a sister, Giovanna D'Amico; and a brother, Arnaldo Fantozzi. She was the beloved mother of Mary Ann (Larry) Clever and Alba (Alan) Ruckert, both of New Kensington; cherished Nana of five grandchildren, Michael (fiancee Gabrielle) Clever, Stacy (Graig) Pattison, Larry (Pamela) Clever, Tara (Christopher) Stevens and Brian Noble; and five great-grandchildren, from whom she greatly derived joy, Scarlett and Troy Pattison, Dylan and Natalie Clever and Claire Stevens. She is also survived by a beloved brother, Domenico Fantozzi, of Boyne Falls, Mich.; and numerous nephews and nieces. She was a member of Mt. St. Peter Roman Catholic Church of New Kensington, the Roccacinquemiglia Society and the Italian Sons and Daughters of America. She enjoyed cooking, baking bread and gardening. Her delicious homemade pasta, sauce, meatballs and bread were family favorites. Her greatest joy was being surrounded by her family, especially around her dining room table and front porch. Special thanks to the wonderful caregivers who made it possible for her to remain in her home and never be alone.
