YOUNGSTOWN - Friends and family are invited to celebrate the life of Betty Jane Lallo, who passed away Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014, at home, with her children and grandchildren at her side.
Born June 15, 1930, in Youngstown, Betty lived 83 years. Betty is welcomed to heaven by her parents, Rose and Joseph DelFratte; her brothers, Anthony and Donald; and sister, Marie.
Betty was the bride of John Nicholas Lallo for 57 beautiful years.
Betty was passionate about bringing the family together, cooking and seeing the family enjoying it all. If she wasn't with the family, she was planning on the next event.
She was active for many years with the Alter and Rosary Society at St. Anthony's and the tradition of Friday pizza making. She also assisted in the family business, McRoyal Industries Inc., Youngstown, working by her husband's side. She enjoyed social time with her girlfriends and the occasional game of chance.
She was preceded in death by her husband; son, John Kenneth; and daughter-in-law, Diana (Ceo) Lallo.
She is survived by her son, Michael; daughter, Lisa Cantillo (Julio); her beautiful grandchildren, Melissa (Brian), Erica (Brian), John (Mackenzie), Samantha, Julian and Aidan; and great-grandchildren, Estella Marie, Robert Price, Kenneth Cade and Nicolo John.
Visitation for family and friends will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday at St. Anthony's, followed by her funeral Mass at 11 a.m.
Entombment will follow Mass in Calvary Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions be made to St. Anthony of Padua Parish, 1125 Turin Ave., Youngstown, OH 44510.
