Obituary of Colombo (Mancini) DeFelice

Colomba “Cathy” (Mancini) DeFelice went to be with the Lord on Thursday, December 2, 2021. Cathy was 89 years old and born in Collelongo, Italy on June 2, 1932 to the late Lorenzo and Filomena Mancini. Her spirit is carried on by her children: Tina Shinkovich and husband John of Riverview, FL, Paula Shilling and husband Curtis of Point Marion, PA, Dianne Robinette of Fairmont, Denise Gribble of Morgantown, Anthony DeFelice and wife Kim of Morgantown, Victor DeFelice and husband Josh McCoy of Morgantown, Ann Marie Whitehair and husband Stewart of Grafton; by her 14 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and many other family members and friends, all of whom she dearly loved. Cathy is now reunited with her beloved husband Mario L DeFelice, Sr.; her oldest son Mario L DeFelice, Jr.; granddaughter, Angela M. Claypole, along with her parents and siblings. Cathy was one of the fortunate ladies that was able to be a stay-at-home mom. She taught her children the importance of family and life lessons. She was an amazing woman with many talents. Above her many gifts and talents, the one she cherished was being a dedicated mother and grandmother to her children and family. We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons during her 89 years and witness the incredible job she did in her journey. We will remember her strength, kindness, warmth, her energy, her love for her family and friends. She worked very hard all her life, up until the very end. She made a difference in the lives of many people. A private celebration of life will be held with family and close friends. In lieu of flowers donations may be made in honor of Cathy’s memory to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
