Edith Lewandowski, daughter of the late Anthony and Vicenza (Jane) Giobbi was born on August 10th, 1929, in Dunbar, Pennsylvania. She was a twin sister and one of eight children.
She and her late husband Walter Lewandowski were united in holy matrimony on November 22nd, 1956. They had two daughters, Janeanne (1959) and Susan (1963), with four grandchildren and one great-grandchild named in her honor, Edie.
A loving homemaker, Edith treasured the many family parties and picnics she hosted with an abundance of food, companionship, and the occasional ball game. As a talented cook and baker, Edith shared her gifts selflessly and no one ever left her home without having a slice of cake, apple pie, or a take-home bag full of pepperoni rolls.
Sharing in Walter’s love of fishing, she enjoyed boat rides and cooking whatever they caught. Her late twin sister Ida Mascarelli, was an honored kinship in her life and they often spent time together listening to baseball games, playing cards, and sharing in the joys of their families.
Edith was a woman of devoted faith and frequently acknowledged her blessings. She was a member of St. Aloysius Church her entire life, as well as a member of the Altar Rosary Society, and the St. Vincent De Paul Society.
Edith celebrated her family and lifelong friendships by expressing her deep gratitude to the wonderful people who filled her life with love. Many of her cherished memories were shared with her loving niece Mary Jane D’Amico and her husband Don, nephew James Gambone and his wife Patty, and late nephew the Sullivan Gambone and his wife Kathy. She had a strong bond with her sister-in-law Pauline Giobbi, and her son Anthony; their companionship enriched both of their lives. She had lifelong friendships with neighbors in in Dunbar Township, fellow church goers and community members. Edith found genuine joy in celebrating good news for all their growing families and felt blessed to be in their lives.
