Patricia J. "Patti" Cannizzaro, 62, of Monongahela, went home in the arms of the Lord on Sunday, July 23, 2023. Born on September 20, 1960, she was the second eldest daughter of the late Patrick M. and Anna May (Cenkner) Sedlak.
Patti was a faithful follower and member of Saint Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church in Donora. She loved spending time with her husband, children, and grandchildren, as she was the definition of a true family woman. Patti always insisted on taking as many photos as possible at family gatherings so that her family would have "memories in our hearts and minds." Needless to say, her memory is everlasting in the countless family photos she took over the years!
Patti is survived by her beloved husband of 26 years, Peter M. Cannizzaro, of Monongahela, along with her three children, Frank M. Skrypak of Monessen; Melissa J. (Matthew) Speicher of Dunbar; and Patrick R. (Dannielle) Skrypak of Monessen. She leaves behind siblings Susan J. Kerestes and the late John A. of Monessen; BethAnn (Ronald) Kovach of Charleroi; Eugene (Paulette) Sedlak of Elizabeth; and Carole Marie Sedlak (and daughter Jaclyn) of Monessen. Also surviving Patti are her nine grandchildren: James, Frankie, and Abigail Skrypak of Scottdale; Lillian, Jason, Jaxon, and Justin Speicher of Dunbar; and Gabbrielle and newborn Daniel of Monessen. Patti has one great-granddaughter, Indi Skrypak also of Scottdale. Patti leaves behind many nieces, nephews, her mother-in-law Joan Cannizzaro, and many brothers- and sisters-in-law, all of whom have felt so much love by her.
