She was born on October 9, 1924 in Ambridge, to the late Steve and Anna (Gera) Mosura. She was a devoted Christian to her Catholic faith.

She was proud to be a part of the Archive Committee that was established during the mergers of all the Ambridge Catholic churches. Her passion in life next to all of her family was preparing her culinary creations in her kitchen where she spent many hours preparing the best homemade meals and baked goods to entertain her family and many friends over the years. She loved the holidays and made them very, very special. We will cherish our Mother’s unyielding love and unselfishness, quick wit and great sense of humor.
