January 26, 1932 - May 12, 2022
Mamie (Domenica) Flara Petroff, 90 of Midland joined her many brothers, sisters, cousins and friends in Heaven on May 12, 2022.
Mamie was born January 26, 1932 to Guiseppe Flara and Maria Di Natale Flara.
She leaves behind her loving husband of 63 years, Joseph Petroff, Sr., also of Midland; her two children, Joseph Petroff Jr., (Stella Pometto) and Tammy (Petroff) Friday (Charles); grandchildren Rio (Friday) Stenner, Blake (Megan) Friday and Chad Friday; great grandchildren, Wren, Edwin, and Calla Stenner; and many nieces and nephews who she loved dearly.
The light of her life was her 3 grandchildren and she sought out to have a close relationship with each, often taking them on special trips including Alaska, Texas, Disney and Legoland. She made sure to never miss a recital, play or ballgame and especially loved watching her grandsons play hockey.
Mamie will be remembered most for her ability to keep her family together and honor the traditions she learned from her mother. Those traditions included large Italian family meals and hosting all holidays where everyone was always welcome. Thanks to her love of family and joy at celebrating holidays, especially Christmas; she leaves her family with many wonderful memories and handmade ceramics.
She will be missed by the many purveyors of collectible bears as she amassed quite an impressive collection. She loved painting ceramics, making stained glass creations and even at the end, she always enjoyed keeping her hands busy.
She will also be missed by the loving staff of Sherwood Oaks where she spent the last 11 years. She will be remembered as kind, a great listener, speaker of idioms, accepting of all, and a second Mom to many.
Friends will be received Sunday, May 15, 2022, 2pm-4pm and 6pm-8pm in the Schwerha-Noll Funeral Home Inc., 600 Beaver Avenue, Midland PA 15059.
