A 49-year resident of Allison Park, Carmela, the amazing mother, wife, cook, and seamstress, enjoyed working and managing the books for the Deluca dress shop in East Liberty for her uncle Tony and aunt Lucy. Carmela developed strong friendships with many of the shops’ clientele including Mrs. Marconi, the widow of Guglielmo Marconi, Nobel Prize winning physicist and inventor credited with the groundbreaking work necessary for all future radio technology. One of Carmela’s proudest possessions is a 1946 photograph taken in the Deluca Dress Shop and used by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, of Mrs. Marconi and her daughter with Carmela and aunt Lucy.

Upon Carmela’s retirement, a former client, Alice Ries, asked Carmela to be her personal clothes shopper for 10 years until her passing in 2000. A very fulfilling friendship indeed.

Carmela took great pride in telling her friends how educated, successful, and accomplished her children and grandchildren had become. Throughout her life, Carmela spoke the words of the 23rd Psalm, with one eye on this world and one eye on the next. We love you Carmela, we look forward to seeing you again.
