Edith Jane Cecconi

Born January 7, 1934

Edith Jane Janie Cecconi, age 80, of New Castle, DE, passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 to join her beloved husband, Bill, with whom she had shared 51 years of marriage.

Born in Altoona, PA on January 7, 1934, she was the daughter of the late Samuel Hundley and Gladys Lannon Hundley. Jane graduated from Notre Dame High School in Moylan, PA, where she met her lifelong friend, Pat Kerezsi. She worked for MBNA for a number of years, retiring in 1997.

Jane was a devout member of Our Lady of Fatima R.C. Church, where she generously volunteered her time for many years and was a member of the sodality.

Of all her many interests, Jane’s love and passion for her family was endless and provided them with an extremely happy and loving home. In her earlier years she was a Girl Scout Leader for Troop 475 and enjoyed attending many baseball games and dance recitals. Throughout the years, she enjoyed collecting cat figurines. During her retirement years, Jane and Bill enjoyed vacationing with their family in Port Aransas, TX.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, William Cecconi; brother, Donald Hundley and son-in-law, David C. Tartaglio, Sr.

Jane’s love, quiet strength and warm heart will be dearly missed and forever cherished by her sons, William Cecconi (Robin) and Donald Cecconi (Gigi); daughter, Jan Marie Tartaglio; twin brother, Paul E. Hundley; six grandchildren, David Tartaglio, Jr., Bill Cecconi, Jr., Donny Cecconi, Patrick Cecconi, Melissa Cecconi and Nadia Sosa; four great-grandchildren; several sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws, nieces and nephews and her faithful feline companion, Williamena.

On behalf of Jane’s family, they would like to extend a very special thank you to three true angels on earth, Debra, Dee and Michelle for caring for their mother as if she was their own.
Friends may visit with Jane’s family from 10:30 am until 11:30 am on Monday morning, April 21, 2014 at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE. Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 12 Noon on Monday, April 21, 2014 at Our Lady of Fatima R.C. Church, 801 N. DuPont Highway, New Castle, DE. Entombment will follow in All Saints Cemetery, 6001 Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington, DE.

In lieu of flowers, Jane’s family suggests memorial contributions be made to Evergreen Alzheimer’s Day Center, 3000 Newport Gap Pike, Wilmington, DE 19808 or to Delaware Hospice, 16 Polly Drummond Center, 2nd Floor, Newark, DE 19711.
