Mary Ellen Rossi, 89, of Mill Creek, passed away Tuesday, November 10, 2020, at her home.
Mary Ellen was born on January 22, 1931, in Masontown, Pennsylvania to the late Theodore and Josephine Parnell. She worked in the banking industry for numerous years and multiple locations where she served as Bank Manager. Mary Ellen loved animals and never missed an opportunity to pet a furry friend. In her spare time, she enjoyed sewing projects or being outdoors, casting a fishing line. The best part of fishing, for Mary Ellen, was eating the reward which she always enjoyed a good seafood meal. Most importantly Mary Ellen cherished her family whom she loved dearly and was most joyful when she was able to spend time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She is survived by her son, Geno Rossi and wife Jamie of the home; grandchildren, Jessica and companion Brian, Joanna and companion Mike, Haley, Shelby and husband Michael, and Jordan; great-grandchildren, Kendra, Ryan, Jade and Josey; and niece, Pam Steele.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Vero “Veto” Edward Rossi; son, Allen Leonard Rossi; sister, Janie Snidash; and Theodore Parnell.
