Serafina (Brunetti) Merandi, 93, of Upper St. Clair, PA, passed away on October 15, 2022. She was born on May 1, 1929 in San Giovanni in Fiore, Italy to the late Giuseppe and Giuseppina (Acri) Brunetti.
Serafina was a life-long learner, dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and wonderful teacher. She loved teaching and shared a passion for learning with her children and grandchildren, even through this year. She was very proud of her Italian Heritage and shared many works of her sewing skills to the Clarksburg community, the Clarksburg Women’s Club, and the Friendship Village residents. She had many hobbies, especially taking great joy in cooking, quilting, sewing and painting. Although, her greatest hobby was being together with her family.
