Antoinette Greco Lattari was born in Mendicino, Italy on June 13, 1932, daughter of the late Giuseppe and Maria (Ruffolo) Greco, and emigrated to the U.S in 1948. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Carlo, who she met on a return trip to Italy in 1966, and her brother, Mariano Greco. She is survived by nieces, nephews and their children who she loved as her own children and grandchildren: Joseph Greco, Gabriella Greco, Arcangela Lattari Balest (John), Francesca Lattari-McKiernan (Fred), Vincent Lattari (Rebeccah), Luciano Valentino (Paola), Fiona Valentino (Paolo), Carlo Valentino (Mariella). Antoinette graduated from Duquesne University and received a masters degree from the University of Pittsburgh. She began her teaching career at St. Peter’s Grade School on the North Side. She taught French and Spanish at Pine-Richland School District for thirty years. She was a devout Catholic and said the rosary at least once a day. Antoinette loved to clean (anywhere/anyplace), bake, and be with her family. Her rice balls were famous among friends and family and always requested for any event. She was grateful for her Cornell Avenue neighbors always watching out for her and for the many friends and relatives who visited with her frequently. Antoinette was “the talker” and regaled her family with many stories and some “secrets”. She was a light. May perpetual light shine upon her.
Family and friends are welcome on Wednesday from 2-4, 6-8 pm at Devlin Funeral Home, 806 Perry Hwy., North Hills. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Thursday at 10 am at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish, St. Athanasius Church, with Rev. Bob Norton officiating.
