Obituary for Perceta Camerot (Dantico)

Perceta  Camerot (Dantico)
Perceta (Dantico) Camerot, formerly of 12th Street, West Pittsburg, went to be with her Lord and Savior on April 13, 2018. She was at home, surrounded by her adoring family. Perceta’s devotion to her faith and to her family gave her comfort and peace until her last day with us.

Born on May 20, 1930 in West Pittsburg, she was the daughter of Marcello and Filomena (Caravella) Dantico. As the daughter of a Pentecostal minister, she was immersed in her Christian faith from a very early age. She converted to Catholicism so that she could marry the love of her life, Jack Camerot, on June 26, 1948. Married almost 70 years, Jack and Perceta shared a beautiful life full of love and happiness. Perceta raised their two children, Jack & Marcie, with love, patience and humility. She taught her children and grandchildren to be faithful, joyful and compassionate.

Perceta loved music, loved to read and wrote beautiful poetry. She, like her father Marcello, also had a love for gardening (especially roses) and always kept her home immaculate. She was an excellent cook who loved to prepare meals for her family and to pass along traditions to her grandchildren. Her children and grandchildren are so proud to carry on the same traditions in honor of their beloved “Gigi”.

Perceta worked at a dry-cleaner in her younger days, as a hospital aide, a teacher’s aide in the New Castle schools, and for many years, alongside her husband at Clingensmith TV. She was a very active member of Holy Cross Church and later, St. Vincent de Paul. Over the years, Perceta cooked for the priests and meticulously cleaned the church every week. She was a lector and a member of the Christian Mothers.

Perceta will be dearly missed by her loved ones, who celebrate that she is at peace in her eternal home. She is survived by her beloved husband, Jack; son, Jack (Arlene) Camerot; daughter Marcella (Thomas) Joseph; her six grandchildren Amy (Bobby) Coles, Tommy Joseph, Joshua (Jennifer) Camerot, Annie (Michael) Graziani, Anthony (Heather) Joseph, and Jaclene Joseph (David Domenick); her sister, Gerry Sojack; six great-grandchildren Liliana Coles, Lilah and Alexander Camerot, Filomena Graziani, Marcella and Madeline Joseph; and many nieces and nephews, whom she loved as her own.  She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister, Antoinette Aloe, her brother, Samuel Dantico and an infant brother.  Perceta’s family was her everything.

Friends and family are welcome from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Monday, April 16th at Ed & Don DeCarbo Funeral Home, 941 South Mill Street.  A procession will leave the funeral home on Tuesday at 9:15 a.m. to attend a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Vincent de Paul, officiated by Father Thomas Sparacino, at 10:00 a.m.

Interment will take place at Parkside Cemetery.

The family is incredibly grateful to Three Rivers Hospice, 26 Nesbitt Road, New Castle, PA 16105 and ask that any donations in Perceta’s honor be directed there.
