Obituary for Alfrieda Joy Bruno

Alfrieda Joy Bruno
Alfrieda Joy (Steiner) Bruno 83, formerly of Upper St. Clair and Greensburg, PA entered heaven on December 2, surrounded by her family at home in Wellsville, PA. She was born May 16, 1935 in Adamsburg, PA and is the daughter of the late Vida and William Steiner. In addition to her parents, she is greeted in heaven by her loving husband John Currie Bruno, Sr. and beloved son John Bruno, Jr.
Celebrating her life are daughter and son-in-law Cheryl (Bruno) and Doug Gamber (Wellsville, PA), cherished grandchildren Emily (Gamber) and Andrew Lambert (Newtown, PA) and John (Wellsville), sister and brother-in-law Anna Marie and Floyd Gillott (North Huntingdon, PA) and brother and sister-in-law Bill and Mary Ann Steiner (Rome, GA), many nieces and nephews, cousins, friends and family dog Lainey.
The family is especially thankful for Charleen, Connie and Sharon who provided loving care and support and enabled Alfrieda to stay at home with Cheryl and Doug for six years as the Alzheimer’s and dementia progressed.
Alfrieda was a 1953 graduate of Sewickley Township High School in Herminie, PA. She attended business school and worked as an executive secretary at Fisher Body/General Motors in West Mifflin, PA. After Cheryl was born she became a full-time homemaker and loved her role as mom and wife. She was active in Cheryl and John’s school events at Upper St. Clair High School and never missed a game or performance. She was a devoted Penn State football fan.
After moves to several states with her husband John for his job at J&L Steel, Alfrieda settled with her family in Upper St. Clair. Alfrieda and John were long-time members of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Upper St. Clair where she served on the communion committee for years faithfully baking communion bread and as a Sunday School teacher with John.
Her life was guided by her deep faith and devotion to family. She shared her love of Christ with everyone she met and served as a role model for all who knew her. Her beautiful smile brought joy and comfort to many. Her positive outlook, kind and generous spirit, attendance at countless sporting events and school activities and commitment to family and friends will long be cherished by all who knew and loved her. We know she is happy to be Home.
Family and friends will be received Friday, December 7 from 3 – 7 pm at James W. Shirley Funeral Home, North Huntingdon; Funeral service Saturday December 8, 10 am at the funeral home. Visitation prior to the service. Intermittent Westmoreland Cemetery, Greensburg. Luncheon to follow at Banquets Unlimited, Irwin.
