Mary J. Sgro (Leone)

Age 96, of Mather, PA, went to be with her Lord Wednesday, December 29, 2021. Mary was born November 13, 1925 in the Sharpsburg area of Pittsburgh, PA. One of nine children to Joseph and Rosie Leone. Mary survived the 1936 flood in Sharpsburg by fleeing a second story window by boat. During WWII, she worked as a Rosie making parachutes and grease-packing machine guns. Mary met the love of her life Domenick Sgro in 1945. They were married in 1947 and were married for almost 70 years when Domenick preceded her in death.  Mary was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Surviving are her two children Connie Jennette and Frank (Jeannie) Sgro; 6 grandchildren Bill Ivanusic, Danielle Sgro, Domenica (Mike) Tendick, Gianna (Michael) Ames, Dani (Matt) Walton, and Tia (Steve) Knauss; 11 great-grandchildren. She loved God. She loved her family and was a loving friend. She loved feeding people, helping everyone, and was always there to listen. Anyone that met her, loved her and she adopted them into her heart as her family. She wanted nothing more than to be reunited with her beloved Domenick since his passing in 2016. In compliance with her wishes, there will be no viewing or funeral services. The committal will be private.
