Beloved wife of the late Giovanni Bianconi (2007).  Loving mother to Teresa (Domenico) Cristofano and Elizabeth (Frank) Fabiano.  Cherished Nonna to Romina (Yoandry) Bernal, Franco Cristofano, Daniella (Chris) Andrew, Mark (Alyssa) Fabiano and precious bisnonna to Soraya Felice.  Much loved sister of the late Benito (Giovanna) Marconi and Lilia (the late Giuseppe) Passero.

She will be sadly missed by her extended family in Italy and by many nieces, nephews and friends. 


Pasqualina worked at Beaver Foods (Ridley College) for 25 years. She had a passion for cooking and knitting, but most of all she enjoyed the time spent with her grandchildren, those endless summers of going to McDonalds were a highlight for her.  A big thank you to the staff at The Henley House for taking such good care of our Mom over the last 7 1/2 years. She will be terribly missed by all of us, until we meet again.
