Frances A. Suppa, 94, passed away Friday, March 26, 2021 at Warren Cambridge, Warren, PA.
She was born January 29, 1927 in Clarendon, PA to the late Anthony and Mary Pulli and was a lifelong resident of Warren. She was a 1946 graduate of Warren Area High School and maintained close ties with fellow classmates organizing numerous reunions for the class. She was a member and active supporter of the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church.
Fran’s pride and greatest pleasure was spending time with her family and friends. Her home was the hub of many family gatherings and celebrations providing countless precious memories for all. The meal most often served was her delicious spaghetti, meatballs and homemade bread. She loved to sew, knit and quilt; in fact conquering crafts of any kind. The physical evidence of her love of home and her artistic talents was the creation of an exquisite doll house, an exact replica of her own home complete with electricity. Her favorite pastimes included playing cards and trips to the casino with a faithful contingent of friends. She enjoyed playing bingo at the Allegheny Community Center and bocce with the Warren Bocce Club. In fact, she was a tournament champion.
Fran is survived by three daughters, Rebecca Tempest of Melrose, MA, Charlene Hoffmann and husband Peter, of Warren and Mary Hanson of Fairfax, VA. She has two beautiful granddaughters, Francesca Louise Hanson and Anne Golden Hanson, who were the blessings of her life and three stepsons, Fr. Thomas Suppa, Danial Suppa, and James Suppa. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins. In addition to her parents, Frances was preceded in death by her husband, Frank Suppa and a son, Stephen Keyvinski. Also, preceding her in death were four sisters Lois Amico, Eleanora Suppa, Virginia Pulli, and Pauline Edwards. A brother, Dominic Pulli, regrettably died in World War II in service to his country
Friends will be received at the gathering space of Holy Redeemer Church, 11 Russell Street, one hour prior to a Mass of Christian Burial on Wednesday, March 31, 2021 at 11:00 A.M. with Father Stephen Schreiber, pastor, officiating.
