Frances A. Cillo

Frances A. Cillo, 78, of Williamsport, died suddenly Friday, May 24, 2013.

Born Feb. 25, 1935, in Williamsport, she was the daughter of Philip and Anna (Colasino) Cillo. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Anthony Cillo.

Frances graduated from St. Joseph’s High School. She retired from Pennsylvania Gas and Water Company.

Frances was an active member of the community and had a great sense of humor. Because of her self-proclaimed striking resemblance, she would introduce herself as Elizabeth Taylor. She was a member of the Democratic Club, but was a registered Republican.

She was a member of St. Ann’s Catholic Church, the St. Ann’s Senior Club, Sons of Italy, and the Allegheny Grange club. Frances volunteered at Sycamore Manor, was part of a home bingo club, and organized and operated “Trips with Fran” bus trips to area casinos.

Surviving are three nephews; her godson, Albert (Erin) Stroble of Collegeville; Philip (Monica) Cillo and Rev. David Cillo, both of Pittsburgh; a niece, Mary Ann (Rev. Dr. Joseph) Compomizzi of Pittsburgh; a great-nephew, Immanuel Compomizzi; two great-nieces, Anna and Claire Stroble; a sister-in-law, Dorothy (Rotondi) Cillo; and her many, many friends.
