Theresa L. (Peroni) Constantine

March 3, 1931 — August 29, 2022

Theresa “Toot” Louise Peroni Constantine passed away on Monday, August 29, 2022 at the age of 91. Her children and her brother were at her bedside as she was ushered into the Kingdom of God.  Born March 3, 1931, she was the only daughter of the late Adolph and Pasqualina Peroni.

Toot was predeceased by her childhood sweetheart, Bill, her dearly loved daughter, Becky and her cherished brother, Adolf “Juney” Peroni.

She was the mother of Bill Jr. (Chris), Bonnie (Dan), and Barry (Denise). Together, she and Bill passed onto them a legacy of faith in God, service to Him, and commitment to family. To this day, this legacy continues through the next generations.  She was known as “Grambo” to her grandchildren, Aimee, Billy (Cori), Leah (Rich), Mark (Hannah), Danielle (Joe), Michael (Jordan), Brian, and Katie and great grandchildren, Lexi, Rocco, Renzo, Mason, Libbey, Micah, Peyton, Parker, and Scotti Jo. Grambo loved to rock or swing them to sleep.  She insisted that their faces be extra clean.  She played many card and board games with them, occasionally cheating, if necessary.  She is survived by her brothers, Victor (Elsie, dec) and Sonny (Ellie); Juney’s wife, Mary; sisters-in-law, Katey Tuckish and Evelyn Constantine and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Toot had a special bond with the small remaining members of St. Hedwig’s Church in Smock. They went to mass daily and enjoyed meals together. They were truly a church community, and she was grateful to be a part of it.  In her later years, Toot was part of a network of phone friends. Her sense of humor and unique ability to tell a story often brightened her friends’ days.  She was a good listener, dispensing and receiving advice and encouragement.  Toot and her friends also discussed the news of the day.  She was a firm believer that “people need to know”.  She was an excellent Italian cook and baker. Sunday dinner with her family was always her specialty, spaghetti and chicken.  Toot was a strong woman and a true character in every sense of the word. It is with sadness that we release her but also with joy, knowing the wonderful reunion that she is having with her family and friends in the Presence of God.

Visitation will be held Friday from 2-6 pm at the Parzynski Funeral Home & Cremations LLC, Family Owned and Operated, 191 Liberty St. Perryopolis, PA 724-736-2515.  Prayers of Transfer will be held Saturday at 12:30 pm in the funeral home followed by funeral mass at 1:00 pm at St. John The Baptist RC Church with the Rev. Rodolfo Mejia as celebrant.  Interment will take place in St. Hedwig Cemetery.  Members of St. John the Baptist Church will pray the rosary for the departed soul of Theresa Friday at 3 PM in the funeral home.

The family would like to thank Diane and all of the staff at Beechwood Court. She loved living there and enjoyed her neighbors on the first floor. The kindness and care that they extended to her throughout her sickness will always be remembered. Also, to Tracy and the Anova Hospice team, we truly appreciate your care and guidance with Toot, as well as her family. Special thanks to her nephew, Richard Cook, MD, for his care throughout the years.
