ROLLOLUCIA P. "Lucy" (nee Clementone), 88, on October 20, 2015, of the 
Residence at Glenn Riddle in Media, and formerly of Drexel Hill and 
Yeadon. Beloved wife of the late Anthony (Tony) J. Rollo, Sr. Loving 
mother of Marian M. (David) DiGirolamo of Newtown Square, Anthony J. 
(Julie) Rollo, Jr of Baton Rouge, LA and Peter R. (Linda) Rollo of 
Media. Doting grandmother of David, Dennis and Lauren DiGirolamo, and 
Emmanuelle and Isabella Rollo. Lucy was born in Philadelphia on 
December 13, 1926 to recent Italian immigrants of limited means, 
Gabriel and Petronilla Clementone. An only child who had no economic 
prospect for attending college, by devoting herself to her studies, 
Lucy graduated from John Bartram High School in 1943 as the top-ranked 
student in her class. As a result she won a full scholarship to the 
University of Pennsylvania, graduating four years later with a degree 
in Chemistry. After working as a chemist for the Navy, Lucy married the 
love of her life, Tony, after he returned from his service with the Air 
Force in World War II. Lucy and Tony celebrated more than 50 years of 
marriage until Tony's passing in 2001 at age 78. Throughout her life, 
Lucy devoted herself to Tony and their family, and helped raise their 
three children and five grandchildren. In addition to regularly 
participating as a volunteer in her children's and grandchildren's 
school and their activities, Lucy worked for many years with the 
Delaware County Intermediate Unit teaching children with learning 
disabilities, and giving her time to helping others in need through 
Meals on Wheels and similar groups. For Lucy, life was all about 
assisting others, especially children and senior citizens who had the 
most urgent need for extra care and love. All who met Lucy enjoyed and 
were inspired by Lucy's work ethic, intelligence, sense of humor, 
humility, and beautiful giving soul. She was truly a great and 
remarkable Lady in every respect. Lucy led her entire life along God's 
path, and today is at peace in the warm embrace of the Lord, and her 
husband Tony. Relatives and friends are invited to Lucy's Life 
Celebration Saturday, October 24, 2015, 9-11 A.M. at SPENCER T. VIDEON
