Patricia S. (Onda) Suriano

August 6, 1941 ~ February 20, 2023 (age 81) 81 Years Old


Age 81, of Dormont, died on Monday, February 20, 2023 after a long illness. Patricia was born in Pittsburgh on August 6, 1941 to Marie (Pujio) and Michael Onda. She grew up in Mt. Washington and Hazelwood, graduating from St. Benedict Academy in 1959. Patricia married her beloved husband, Joseph M. Suriano, in 1966 after meeting while they both worked at the former Pittsburgh Hilton, where he parked cars, and she was the head cashier. Married 56 years, Patricia lovingly raised four children and enriched the lives of others with her warmth, generosity, and unyielding kindness. She was a soft-hearted woman with iron strength, bolstered by her faith and devotion to the Catholic faith. Once her children were in school, she worked for many years as a cashier at the former Spar Market in Dormont and later worked at Federated Investors in Warrendale. Patricia was devoted to her family and friends, enjoyed hosting family parties, cooking and baking side-by-side with her husband. She was incredibly skilled at crochet and made enough afghans throughout the years to blanket Pittsburgh. Patricia was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Mary Lou Weinmann; and her brother, Robert Onda. She is survived by her husband, Joseph; daughters, Marie Suriano Garrity (Jason Garrity), Robyn Shelton (Gary), and Shelley Suriano (Kevin DelBrocco); her son, Vincent Suriano (Amy Skvarka); her grandchildren, Isabella, Roman, Gavin and Judah; and many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews. Friends received 2-8 p.m. on Friday at BRUSCO-NAPIER FUNERAL SERVICE, LTD.2201 Bensonia Ave., Pgh, PA 15216. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday at 10 a.m. in St. Teresa of Kolkata Parish—St. Pius X Church, 3040 Pioneer Ave, Pgh, PA 15226. Interment will be held privately.
