Adella "Delli" P (Pawlosky) SteinJune 6, 1929 ~ September 8, 2017 (age 88)
Adella “Delli” P. Stein, 88, of Warren, entered into eternal life Friday, September 8, 2017 at 12:54 p.m. in the emergency room at Mercy Health St. Joseph Health Center in Warren after becoming ill at home.
Delli was born on June 6, 1929 in Scott Township, Pennsylvania, the only daughter of the late Joseph and Della Kluchonic Pawlosky and was a 1947 graduate of Howland High School.
Delli was a homemaker and was a member of the former Christ Our King Catholic Church in Warren, where she sang in the church choir and was song leader, was member of the Altar & Rosary Society, was Eucharistic Minister to the homebound of the Parish, was CCD office coordinator, belonged the holy beboppers and attended the church’s annual card parties. She was also a member with her high school friends of the WTATOWITC club. She enjoyed baking with her family and for church fundraisers with her signature Pineapple Upside Down cake.
Delli was a loving mother, aunt and friend to all. She gave of herself to everything she did. Church, especially Christ Our King, was foremost in her life. As was mentioned she loved to bake for family and friends and even was a professional cake decorator over the years. She also enjoyed sewing; belonging to a sewing guild, crocheting and playing cards. Family time was special to Delli and inviting realtives and friends to join her and her late husband, John, to Cook Forest State Park and later Conneaut Lake, PA was never uncommon.
She worked at many jobs throughout her journey in life from Islay’s Dairy, Lamp Works, Barricini Candi’s and Mobile Meals. But always her family came first. Her son, daughters, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends meant more to her than anything else. The first thing she will ask when she gets to heaven is how all of them are doing.
She was not just a mother to her children; she was a mother to the neighborhood. Delli’s house was a safe place to call home, enjoy a home cooked meal and the showing of the day’s events. Even as life took away her sight and mobility, she continued to care most about others more than herself.
Delli was a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Warren.
She was married on February 18, 1950 to John J. Stein and they were married for 45 years until his passing on September 9, 1995.
Delli will be sadly missed by her son Michael J. (Carlie) Stein of Avon; daughters Susan S. (Michael) Kilroy of Streetsboro and Marie S. (Richard) Pucak of Grosse Ile, MI; four grandchildren Ryan (Chrissy) Stein, Kari (Jared Giles) Koegel, Holly (Coty) Chism and Michael R. Pucak; and seven great grandchildren Tristan, Alexis, Zion, Chance, Bryson, Callie and Hadley.
Besides her parents and husband, John, Delli was preceded in death by two brothers Joseph and John Pawlosky.
