Antoinette M. Urbano Galownia, 98, of Steubenville, left her family and friends peacefully Monday, March 11, 2019, at her home.
She was born June 12, 1920, in Steubenville. She is the daughter of the late Luigi Urbano and Natalina Urbano Fortuna. She is also preceded in death by her husband, Alfons (Fagan) Galownia, married for 65 years before he passed in February of 2014 ; daughter, Barbara Ann Galownia, who passed away in 1969; brothers, Rosario, George, James and Armand Urbano; all of her family who will be reunited with her.
Antoinette was a homemaker and always put her family first. She was a kind and gentle lady but loved to joke with the “girls.” Antoinette’s family was so blessed to have her for so many years. They will cherish the many memories they have of her and will miss her deeply.
Surviving are one daughter, Mary Jo (Rick) Lorenzi of Steubenville; two grandchildren, Ashley (Kevin) Johnston and Dima Lorenzi of Steubenville; two great grandchildren, Ruby and Sylvia Johnston of Cannonsburg, PA; one sister, Rose Marie (Joseph) Clause of Steubenville; a very special niece, Renee who always made her auntie smile; and a special nephew and niece, Joey and Jane who would take her for rides on their quad; and other neices and nephews.
The family would like to give a special thanks to the wonderful team of girls who loved and cared for Antoinette at home day and night: Nicole, Dana, Katrinka, Maria W., Maria D., Hannah, Alyssa, Bella; the Valley Hospice girls, Kristin, Lisa, Brittney, Mary and Stephanie. They all treated my mom like family and made her last few months comfortable at home. We couldn’t have done it without you. Your support and kindness is so much appreciated.
Calling hours will be Thursday from 10 a.m. until noon at the Mosti Funeral Home, Sunset Chapel, 4435 Sunset Blvd., Steubenville. Funeral liturgy with Mass will follow at 12:30 p.m. at Holy Family Catholic Church. Msgr. Gerald Calovini will celebrate. Burial will follow in Mt. Calvary Cemetery.
