Obituary for Theresa M. Stello (Romanoski)

Theresa Mary Stello, 90, of Shillington, passed away during the early hours of Friday, March 19, 2021. She was the loving widow of Paul V. Stello, who passed away May 17, 2012. Born in Shamokin, PA, Theresa was the eldest child of the late Frank and Mary (Brokus) Romanoski.

Theresa, “Terry,” graduated from Coal Township High School and the Ashland School of Nursing. While working as a registered nurse at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate Hospital in Philadelphia, Theresa was inspired upon seeing several sailors on the subway and decided to join the Navy. She was commissioned into the United States Navy Nurse Corps on March 11, 1957. She served at the U.S. Naval Hospitals in St. Albans, NY, and Portsmouth, VA, and was Honorably discharged as a Lieutenant, Junior Grade in April, 1959. After leaving the service and starting her family, Theresa worked at Community General Hospital in Reading until her retirement in 1995. She was extremely proud of her service in the Navy and of her career as a Registered Nurse.

Theresa enjoyed family time and loved taking trips to Virginia Beach, often rising early to sit on the boardwalk and watch the sun rise and the dolphins swim.

She was a member of St. John Baptist de la Salle Roman Catholic Church of Shillington.

Theresa’s memory will be forever treasured by her children: Brian, husband of Toiya. Allentown; Michelle Mulherin of Sinking Spring; Lisa Sachetta, wife of Richard, Sinking Spring; and Tim, Kensington, MD; her grandchildren, Katrina, Daniel, Gianni, and Logan; and her brother Michael Romanoski and sister Bernice Romanoski, both of Philadelphia.

To Terry's Children: Brian, Michelle, Lisa and Tim and Families,

I'm so very saddened to hear of your mom's passing. What a pip!!! Your mom was a One-of-a-Kind!!!
I will certainly miss having her next door. She was a great neighbor and a wonderful lady, full of life and lots of stories. I especially liked hearing about her days in the Navy. I will miss her and her indomitable spirit! (More than you know...) But, just as I know she's happy to be reunited with your dad, she will continue to watch over you all, like another star in the sky.

Shine Bright Terry!
Memory Eternal!
Stacy De Mott
