Is Recine her maiden name or married name?

I did a quick search at newspaperarchive.com and could not find anything. Do keep in mind that most of the obituaries I have seen from that period are simple one or two sentence affairs. Basically, "Someone, aged something, of Anytown, died yesterday. Services will be held tonight at ...."

Grandfather's first name?

Approximate birth year for both grandmother and grandfather?

Names and approximate birth years of children?

Did grandmother/grandfather marry in the US or in Italy?

Are you certain about Mattia as grandmother's given name? It is actually a masculine name...

Do you know the exact date of death? If yes, contact the research desk at the nearest public library and ask them to search their newspaper archives. If not, then check this out: http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/se ... ates/14122
