Elizabeth Spampinato Obituary

SPAMPINATO – Elizabeth “Betty,” peacefully passed to new life on October 6, 2023, at Heritage Ridge Senior Living Center. Preceded in death by parents Mary (Mateljan) and Joseph Lugar; husband, Donald; siblings Joseph Lugar, Helen Pohlit, Bernard Lugar, Leona Mock, Donna Rupert; nieces Suzie Rupert and Kathy Pohlit Flaherty; and nephew David Pohlit. She was the last surviving member of her family. Survived by beloved daughter, Marianne, and granddog, Galla, and loving nieces and nephews. Betty was a talented seamstress, having worked at Cay Artley, Bali Bra and Bestform factories, and also donated her skills to the former St. Rochus Parish and St. Clement Parish. She was known by fellow parishioners for her peanut butter fudge donated to church festival bake sales over many years. Her family fondly remembers her beef vegetable soup, breaded pork chops, turkey stuffing and gobcake. Betty liked to read and do word search puzzles but missed reading the paper in recent months due to deteriorating eyesight. She enjoyed watching television, in particular mysteries, crime procedurals and westerns. Her faith, love and common-sense wisdom live on in “Listen to Your Mother,” written by Marianne in 2018. Viewing is scheduled from 2-7 p.m. Tuesday at the Francis G. Ozog Funeral Home, Inc where vigil service will be held. Funeral Mass is scheduled for 11 a.m. Wednesday at St. Clement Parish, Rev. William Rosenbaum presiding. Committal, Grandview Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, to honor Betty’s memory, the family suggests memorial masses or donations to local food pantries and veterans support organizations, her favorite charities.
