PITTSBURGH - Lila Francine Rupinsky, 8 days, passed away in her parents' arms Friday, Feb. 8, 2013.
She was the cherished and beloved daughter of Mike and Jenny Fiorenzo Rupinsky.
Lila was born Jan. 31, 2013, in Pittsburgh, weighing 6 pounds, 4 ounces, and was 19.5 inches long. She was the answer to their prayers and they waited for her birth with joyful expectation.
Her maternal grandparents were James and Annette Fiorenzo of Erie, Pa., and the late Francine Fiorenzo. Her paternal grandparents are Barbara and George Rupinsky of Warren. She was the first niece for her aunts and uncles, Dan Fiorenzo, Katie Rupinsky, Christopher Rupinsky and Jodie and Dave Bobco. Lila also was surrounded in love by her four great-grandparents, Helen Bevilacqua, Betty and Nello Fiorenzo, and Dorothy Rupinsky; great-aunts; great-uncles; cousins; and friends.
During her short time here, her parents found that she loved wearing headbands, the color pink and pointing her fingers. She didn't really care much for baths, but really enjoyed having her hair brushed.
She touched many lives in her short life, and a remembrance and charity fund was set up in her name.
In lieu of flowers, donations are being accepted to the Lila Rupinsky Memorial Fund. For more information and to read Lila's story, visit lilarupinsky.com.
