CUYAHOGA FALLS - Theresa (Malorni) Prinzo, 98, passed away on December 29, 2019.
She lived her entire life in Cuyahoga Falls. She was born on December 17, 1921, to the late James and Gemmina Malorni. Theresa embraced the "We can do it!" attitude while working at Goodyear on the B-24 during WWII. She was also a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church and enjoyed spending time with her sisters, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She was an excellent bowler and scrabble player. Luck was always on her side, so she enjoyed playing bingo, going to the casino, and, of course, winning!
Theresa was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years Carmen, her parents, and her siblings Jim, Parde, Andy, Nick, Lee, Mary, and Jean. She is survived by her son John (Doreen) Prinzo, and daughter Patti (Hollis) Rich; grandchildren Tara (Merv) Smith, Jami (Steve) Briggs, Trisha (Gordon) Yocom, Vince (Tricia) Prinzo, Kristen (Mike) Golding, and Jason (Keena) Rich; great-grandchildren Kellen, Kayla, Meg, Drew, AJ, Carmen, Sofia, Kendra, Gina, Juliana, Amelia, Aidan, and Brennan.
The family would like to thank Nancy Miller, Peggy Baranek, Heather Vespro and Summa Hospice for the care and consideration given to their mother.
