EILEEN A. (FATE) BOCCHICCHIO
Age 93, passed away suddenly on May 2, 2023. A loving mother and matriarch to three generations, and devoted wife to her husband, Mario (deceased) of 65 years. Eileen and Mario created a family of six children: Brian (Jennifer), Kathleen Ann, Elaine DeAngelis (Anthony), Marie Mulraney (Henry), Jeffrey (Michelle) and Darlene Swetoha (Timothy); 13 grandchildren: James (Agata), Eileen (Daniel), David, Sean (Lucy), Ryan (Nikalette), Amanda (Christopher), Brian, Maria (Zachary), Christina, Sabrina, Victoria, Ava and Brooke. She is also survived by seven great-grandchildren: Natalia, Henry, Liam, Luciana, Aidan, Reagan and Jackson. She is preceded in death by her parents Leo and Ann(a) Fate, sister Dolores Coons and brothers John “Elmer” and Regis Fate.
Eileen was a mother that anyone would hope to have, or want to be. Her love, warmth and concern for her family, as well as welcoming nature and genuine consideration for others, are blessings that will be missed but fondly remembered. As Head of the Bookkeeping and Shipping Department, she was a supportive partner to her husband’s watch repair business. Eileen enjoyed cooking and baking for her family and those spoonfuls of love will not easily be forgotten. Blessed by God, Mario and Eileen brought forth an extensive family. A united force, they were simple and loving people who were everyday heroes to their family. Rest in peace together.
Family and friends will be received at Frank F. DeBor Funeral Home, 1065 Brookline Blvd., 412-561-0380, on Sunday, 3-7 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, at 10 a.m., in the Church of the Resurrection (St. Teresa of Kolkata Parish), Brookline. Interment to follow in St. Augustine Cemetery, 250 Wible Run Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15209.
