Patricia J. Steffa, beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and aunt, was brought home to the Lord on Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019 at the age of 86.
Born in North Philadelphia on November 2, 1932, Patricia spent most of her life in Juniata Park and Northeast Philadelphia. She was the third daughter born to Eugene and Margaret (nee Higgins) Donohoe and loved being a part of a large family with her 8 siblings. In 1952, she married her beloved husband, the late George Steffa, and together they raised five children before his untimely death in 1977: Kevin, Patrick, Joseph, Marianne and Thomas Steffa. In addition to George, she was predeceased in death by Tommy (1982) and Rick (2014) and is survived by her children: Kevin and wife Cecilia (nee Mullin), daughter-in-law Diane (nee Pellegrini), Joseph and wife Catherine (nee Barry), and Marianne and husband Kevin McVey. She is also survived by sisters Mary (nee Donohoe) Hauser and Kate (nee Donohoe) Cantwell, her 14 loving grandchildren, and 17 precious great grandchildren.
Patricia was a woman of unwavering faith and followed in the footsteps of our Lord. She was known for her quick wit and boundless strength and was endlessly generous and giving of herself to others. She enjoyed crocheting, shopping, and being an accomplished seamstress. Most of all she cherished being a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. After the sudden death of her husband George, Patricia carried on with grace and resilience. She sustained Steffa Metals, the business started by her husband, and continued to raise her children. When her sons took over the business, Patricia retired and went on to enjoy spending her winters in Naples, Florida and summers in Sea Isle City, New Jersey – a special place where she started vacationing in the 1940s.
Patricia brought light to all those she met and was friends with so many around her. During the last year and a half, she developed many friendships with the residents and staff members of Neshaminy Manor in Warrington, PA. Patricia will be greatly missed, but her memory will be eternally cherished by everyone who had the sincere pleasure to know and love her.

Genevieve Nobile of Langhorne and formerly of Glen Head, New York passed away peacefully at home and surrounded by her family on Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019 at the age 94.
Genevieve was the loving wife of the late Thomas A. Nobile.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, she was the daughter of the late Salvatore and Catherine LoSchiavo Colorafi. In addition to her husband and her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Vincent and Bart Colorafi.
Genevieve graduated from Bay Ridge High School in New York and went on to attend Columbia University. She held various professional positions over the years; however, her number one commitment was taking care of her family. Following her husband’s death, Genevieve relocated to Langhorne, Pennsylvania and at the age of 77, she began a whole new chapter in life. Gene was a faithful parishioner of Queen of the Universe Parish in Levittown where she attended daily Mass. She volunteered her time at St. Mary Medical Center Thrift Store, Mary’s Pantry Cupboard, helped to care for the church altar linens, and was a familiar face at the clubhouse at the Villages of Flowers Mill, the community where she resided since moving to Pennsylvania.
Slowing down was not in Genevieve’s vocabulary for it was not until later in life that she took her love of travelling to a new level, visiting countless destinations, most of which were visited over the last 17 years of her life. She travelled all over the United States and internationally to more places than most could fathom and in the instances where she was at home for a period of time, she always had something to keep her busy. Not only did her volunteer work keep her moving, but she also enjoyed reading, power walking, stretching exercises, and after moving to Bucks County, Gene became an avid card player mostly because it provided an opportunity to be surrounded by her many friends. She will be dearly missed as a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend.
Surviving are her children, Terry Iacobellis (Rev. Mr. William Iacobellis) of Holland, PA, Thomas Nobile (Cathy) of New York, NY, and Cathy DeRico of Yardley, PA. She also leaves behind her grandchildren, Bill, Kate, and Luke; and her great-grandchildren, Megan, Aubrey, James, Katherine, and Thomas.
