Mary Bernato

(Continued)

ASHTABULA —

Mary was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She cherished her family and the time they spent together. Cooking and baking brought great pleasure to her by using traditional recipes and sharing them with family and friends. The holiday baking was an annual tradition that has spread across the generations with an excitement for the ham pies, rice pies, molasses cookies and cream puffs. Following the death of her father, Mary worked diligently to continue the Annual Pavolino Family Reunion held the first Sunday in July, serving as an officer for several terms. She was married to her husband, Frank Bernato, on March 29, 1944, by Msgr. John J. Davidson.

Survivors include her daughter, Rosemary Bernato; son, Frank (Bonnie) Bernato; three grandsons, Anthony (Amy) Bernato of Ashtabula, Michael (Kim Sarvis) Bernato of Madison and Thomas Bernato of Massilon; two great-granddaughters, Kimberly Roxberry and Emily Bernato; one brother, Vincent Pavolino; sisters-in-law, Joanne Pavolino and Jean Pavolino; along with several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband and brothers, Cosmos and Louis Pavolino; sisters-in-law, Bridget, Paulyne and Irene Pavolino; nephews, Dennis Pavolino and Robert Lampela; and niece, Jamie Pavolino Donatone.

Calling Hours will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m., Sunday, August 18th, and from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., Monday, August 19th, at GUERRIERO FUNERAL HOME, 1550 W. 19th St., Ashtabula.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 11 a.m., Monday, August 19th, at Our Lady of Peace Parish, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel worship site, 1200 E. 21st St., Ashtabula, with Father Philip Rogers presiding. Burial will follow at St. Joseph Cemetery, Carpenter Road.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Mended Hearts Society or EWTN. Envelopes will be available.

The family is grateful for the wonderful, compassionate care provided by her caregiver and extended family member Morgan Peckol. A special thank you to Dr. Orlando D’Silva, Dr. Jeff Brodsky, Dr. Ashok Kondru, Dr. Philip Goldberg, Dr. Doug Vis and Dr. Jay. The family would also like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Continuum Home Health and Hospice of the Western Reserve for their kind and gentle care.
