Concetta “Connie” Sancinito, 96, of Falls Township, PA died peacefully on Friday September 29, 2023 at her home.
Born and raised in Pittston, PA, a daughter of the late Santo and Rose Anzalone Sperazza. Her father’s death, occurring when she was 8 years old, greatly impacted her life creating the strong, family oriented person we all loved.
Connie has resided in Lower Bucks County since 1953. In 1955 she and her late husband Dick became original owners in the Pennsbury Heights development where Connie resided surrounded by many friends until her death. She was a founding member and devoted parishioner of St. John the Evangelist Church. Connie had a wonderfully happy family life; she loved to read, visit art museums, and travel whenever she could.
Connie also had a varied and interesting career in nursing. She was a graduate of the Pittston (PA) School of Nursing and served in World War II as an Army Cadet Nurse for three years. After her service, she was on the nursing staff at Helene Fuld Hospital, now Capital Health Regional, for many years. Much later she seized the opportunity to return to college, earning a B.S. in Nursing from Stockton State University. This led to her career as an Instructor for Licensed Practical Nursing students at Bucks County Technical School. Here she made lifelong friends with whom she traveled the world.
Connie was the wife of the late Richard (Dick) Sancinito and their relationship was a love story of decades. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Louis and Susan Sancinito of Trenton, NJ; and her daughter and son-in-law, Lucylle (Lucy) and Tom Walter of Ewing Twp., NJ. Her heart and soul belonged to her four grandchildren and their partners, Melanie Walter and her husband Graham Richardson, Jane Sancinito, Richard Walter and his fiancée, Tiffany Schmidt, and Samantha Walter. She delighted in her one great granddaughter, Astrid Richardson.
