Dona Rae Magdalene DiCello

July 22, 1948 ~ August 13, 2018 (age 70)

Age 70, of McKees Rocks,  was reunited with her parents (Marietta R., 2010 and Raymond B. DiCello, 1972) on August 13, 2018. Survived by cousins and grandchildren of Maria and Leonardo Valicenti, Celeste and Enzo Ferrarra, John and Sue Center, Sharon Ewing and their children and grandchildren. DiCello, who worked with youth and teens, was especially proud of Teen Hotline, a truly shared dream of the dedicated professional and volunteer staff. Other programs include a Reassurance Program for seniors and Kidshine Phone Pals, an intergenerational phone service for youth connected to senior adults (in their own homes). Caring volunteers gave heart and soul to mascot Krocky Dial. Dona always said she was blessed by the kindness of  others. Among them, the professional and compassionate staff and patients at Ohio Valley Dialysis Center, Access drivers with their sense of humor and thoughtful concern for passengers. Her longtime friend, Bill, drove her to the transplant clinic daily for over three years. He was a friend when it was hard to be. The joy of her heart was her furry family, Spotty, Amy B. Rabbit, Timmy Tiger and Cuddles and  “family of choice” “sister”,  Nancy Radanovic,  “daughter and son in law” and caring caregivers, Crystal and David Monroe, and dearest “granddaughter”, “Pumpkin” Ajanae Monroe.  “My appreciation and prayers to each and all who touched and enriched my life.”  Blessing Service on Saturday at 11:00am at the Anthony M. Musmanno Funeral Home, Inc., 700 7th Street, McKees Rocks, PA 15136.
