Message From The Family

Thank you for your prayers, love and support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Stephenie by adding your memories and photos.

It is with my heartfelt sadness to tell you that my Mom, Stephenie Marie Pelfini passed away on Thanksgiving, November 24th, 2016. We were with Mom at her bedside when she took her last breath. It was a beautiful experience.

Stephenie was born a proud coal miner's daughter to Stephen and Anna Verosko in Pennsylvania. She was the beloved twin to Stephen Verosko and little sister to Florence Pastrick.

She left home and came to California to start her next life's journey. She married William Pelfini, settled down in Daly City and later made her home in San Mateo. Stephenie was world travelled and active in her community. She was a Faithful Catholic. She lived and loved life with purpose. She brought her own happiness and positive energy to all of you she touched.

She is survived by her son Michael, daughter-in-law Jennifer and brother Stephen. Mom - We Love You and will honor your memory through our life together.
Stephenie "Sis" will be remembered by her nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends. She treasured her time with you. She loved you and wanted you to feel special.

Visitation will be held at 5pm followed by a Rosary at 7:30pm on Thursday, 12/1/16 at Sneider & Sullivan & O'Connell's Funeral Home, 977 S. El Camino Real, San Mateo, CA. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10am on Friday, 12/2/16 at St. Gregory Catholic Church, 28th & Hacienda, San Mateo, CA. Interment at Cypress Lawn Memorial Park in Colma, CA.

We are requesting that in lieu of flowers, that you consider donating to one of her cherished organizations (see charity selection below).

Mike.... I am so very sorry for your loss. Your Mom was the sweetest lady who was always so kind to everyone who was blessed to have known her. she treated everyone as if they were her own child with her warm smile and hugs. I will remember her fondly

Dear Stephenie Family, we at the Saint Gregory Gregorians are sad to hear of Stephenie passing. She was a wonderful person and we had a lot of fun times with her. She loved bingo and even would call our games. I also saw her at the senior center bingo where she also called the games. The last time I saw Stephenie was at mass when she told me she was not feeling well and had a pacemaker installed. I taught it would be just a matter of time before her body adjusted but I guess God had a different plan. I'm sure she is in heaven with all her past family and friends in perfect happiness with our Lord. May she rest in peace. With sympathy. John Del Rosso of the Gregorians.

Michael, Jennifer and Family of our dear Stephanie,
What an honor to have had her friendship. I have quite a few Christmas ornaments that she made and I purchased at her Daly City Holiday boutique, that will remind me of her talents. We will miss her fun and giggles at our annual pool side lunches, and wonderful dinners at her house. Her bubbly personality was unique, and admired. It was time for her to go, but she will never be forgotten.

Many tears as she was so sweet and loved by so many, especially you, Mike. I'm so glad I was fortunate to know her. She always had a beautiful smile and kind words. I know Doug loved her like a second mother & will miss her also. Glad she was able to make your wedding and know your new wife. Our sincere condolences to you & yours in your loss and know that we care so much.
