Uniontown

Margaret "Marge" Stoyko Piccolomini, 91, of Uniontown, passed away Monday, August 12, 2019, at her home. She was born October 12, 1927, in Gates, to the late John and Anna Urosh Stoyko.

She is survived by her son, Mario D. and his wife, Elizabeth Oldland Piccolomini of Uniontown; a daughter, Tina M. Piccolomini of Gainesville, Va.; four grandchildren, Richard E. Bower Jr. of Connellsville, Emily F. Bower of Maitland, Fla., Santo A. Piccolomini of Uniontown and Mario A. Piccolomini of Uniontown; a sister-in-law, Enis Argenti of Lorain, Ohio; a sister and brother-in-law, Constance and Carmen of New Smyrna Beach, Fla.; a brother and sister-in-law, Dominic and Barbara Piccolomini of Uniontown; several nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

During World War II, at the age of 15, Marge moved to Cleveland, Ohio, to work for Union-Carbide, soldering batteries for the military's two-way radios. After the war, Marge moved back to Pennsylvania and worked at Uniontown Hospital doing laundry. From 1969 until her retirement, Marge worked at Menallen Elementary School as a cook.

During her retirement years, she enjoyed going to Mass, gardening, canning, cooking, bingo and especially spending time with her grandchildren. Marge will be remembered for her hard work ethics, great faith and love of God, her quick wit, and her favorite phrase, "You're going to get it!"

A very special thank you to Michelle and Heidi and all the staff at Amedisys Hospice for their support and care of Marge and helping her daughter-in-law, Liz, her primary caregiver, in the last months of her life.
