Obituary

Obituary for Catherine Repice (Talotta)

Mrs. Catherine Repice (nee Talotta) of South Philadelphia, peacefully on Saturday, March 16, 2019 in her home, surrounded by her family. She was 89 years of age.

Born in Santa Caterina del Ionio, Italy, Catherine brought many of the old world traditions here to new home in South Philadelphia. Her kitchen was the heart of the family home and was where she made magic happen. Rice Balls, Honey Balls, Easter Bread, Lasagna, Soppressata, Capocollo, fried Zucchini Blossoms, gravy, canning are just a few things that were lovingly done with her own hands, with love, from scratch. Catherine had a deep devotion to her Roman Catholic beliefs. She would attend church daily and was Eucharistic Minister at the Italian Language Mass at Saint Nick's. Her home would reflect the important holy events and would decorate accordingly. Many would remember the feast of Corpus Christie where there would be an altar in the front of her house and where the Benediction would be given when the procession would conclude.

She is the beloved wife of the late Giorgio; devoted mother of Frank (Vita), Domenic, Rosemary (Donato) Valentino and Anthony (Linda); loving grandmother of Giorgio, Anthony, Anthony, Domenic, Joseph and Anthony and great grandmother of Orlando and Leo.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend her viewing 9 AM and Funeral Mass 10:30 AM Thursday in St. Nicholas of Tolentine Church, 9th & Watkins Sts. Entombment Fernwood Mausoleum, Yeadon.
