Obituary for Stella Rose Petta

Stella Rose Petta (nee Crocetti), 92

Beloved wife of the late Daniel Petta Sr.
Devoted mother of Mary Jo (William) Aukstik, Donna (Ronald) Dockus, and the late
Daniel Petta, Jr.
World’s greatest ‘Nonny’ to six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Loving sister to the late Edith Pelliccione (the late Albert), Ellen DeYulius (the late Patsy) Anne DiGuiseppe (the late Dominic), Mario Crocetti (the late Dorothy), and Gilda Eggerstorfer (the late Frank).
Stella grew up in Gallitzin, PA, and moved with her family to Blue Island, IL, in 1953, eventually settling in Orland Park. She was known for dancing in her kitchen and baking more than a dozen different types of Christmas cookies each year to create abundant cookie trays, which she delivered to treasured friends and loved ones. Her baking rivaled only her Sunday family dinners, where her homemade gnocchi, ravioli, meatballs and roasted peppers didn’t stand a chance against the family. And no meal would be complete without her famous Whiskey cake. An expert card player, Stella was both smart and full of luck. She will be missed, but the fond memories, recipes and family traditions she leaves behind ensure that she will live far beyond her years on Earth.
