Donna Jean Bernazzoli, of Warrington, passed away on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia. She was 75.

She was the loving wife of Mario Bernazzoli. The couple had recently celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary in February.

Born in Tunnelhill, PA, she was the daughter of the late Orazio and Jennie Dillalogue.

Donna spent her earlier years as a hairdresser, and when her children had grown, she was employed as a school aide for the Central Bucks School District for 20 years.

Everything Donna enjoyed in life, she enjoyed doing with Mario. Golfing was their absolute favorite past-time, along with traveling and gardening. Over the years, she made so many wonderful friendships as a member of Old York Road Country Club and the Bucks County Country Club. But her greatest pleasure in life was spending time with family and friends. Donna had a unique way of making people feel welcome and a part of our family. She truly valued the friendships she shared with the Julian’s, the Ledder’s, the Lahr’s, the Shelly’s, the Chess’s, the Stella’s, the Leighton’s, the Schiesser’s, and all her friends in Palomino Farms and Lamplighter Village; as well as the Giorgi-Baker’s, the Campbell’s, the Hadfield’s, the Melchiorre’s, the Howley’s, the Giorgi’s, the Kleger’s, the Madani’s and the entire staff at Bacco’s and La Voglia Restaurants.

In addition to her husband, Mario, Donna will be dearly missed by her children, Mark Bernazzoli (Scott Jacob), Marsha Ledder (Rob); and her 4 grandchildren, Alex Forero (Emily Campbell), Jessica Ledder (Jason Papandorf), Brianna Ledder, and Olivia Ledder.

Donna was the youngest of 10 children, she was preceded in death by her brothers Toby (Rosa) Dillalogue, Angelo (Catherine) Dillalogue, Jim (Joy) Dillalogue, Fred (Jeanette) Dillalogue and Bob (Nina) Dillalogue; and her sisters Dorothy (Joe) Toth, Mary (Bud) Kuhar and Liz (Don) Gallagher. Her dear sister Rose (Bob) Rimini is the only surviving sibling.

She was a beloved sister in law to Bob (Sandy) Bernazzoli, Barbara (Joe) Francis and Richard (Annette) Bernazzoli.

She will be dearly missed by all her nieces and nephews who adored her.

Donna’s services will be held privately at the convenience of the family.

To the Bernazzoli and Ledder families. It is with great sadness the Bernazzoli family has lost another member of the family. The event of losing Donna was not only sudden but tragic. I will always treasure her last phone call when she was having some sort of a good day.and face timed me. She had on an oxygen mask with a rebreather attached. She wasn’t struggling to breathe too badly and I did manage to have a good conversation with her not knowing it would be our last. I miss her nightly phone calls -. She was lonely after Mario had been taken to the hospital and then transferred to Nashimity memory care. We laughed and cried. Talking about recipes and all the old world cooking my grandparents brought from Italy. We learn a-lot about both sides. The time went quickly. She talked a lot about her brothers and sisters and their families It help fill the void of my own loneliness because of my losing experience losing my husband Joe. I realized when u walk that road u must walk it alone. Too much to expect others to grieve along side of u. My only prayer is when Donna got to those pearly gates Joe was there to welcome her. He was that kind of gentleman. Donna— May u Rest In Peace. Never will be forgotten. Love, your sister-in-law. Barbara ( Mario sister).
