Colleen Spadaro, 64, of Scottdale, passed away Sunday, November 10, 2019, in UPMC Shadyside Hospital. She was born September 2, 1955, in Dubois, PA, a daughter of the late Frank and Peninah (Fullerton) Manco Oberg.
Colleen was a 1973 graduate of Dubois Central Catholic High School and was employed as the office manager for Dr. Stacie Murrer, DMD. Colleen was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and sister. She cherished Sunday dinners, followed by board games with her family. Holidays were important to her and preparing festive meals brought her great joy. Colleen also enjoyed attending her grandchildren’s sporting events and was their #1 fan!
She is survived by her loving husband of forty-two years, Eugene B. Spadaro, and her beloved children and grandchildren: son, Eugene B. Spadaro, III (Susan) and their children, Gracie and Anthony; daughter, Ashley Snyder (Matthew) and their children, Tyler Hernley and Grant Snyder; and son, Shawn Spadaro (David Volpe); her extended family from Dubois: Ronald Spadaro, John Spadaro, Gary Spadaro and Cathy Anderson; several nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews. Colleen was also privileged to have close special friends: Albert and Lilene Birch and family; Linda Humbert and family. And, she had a special bond with her golden retriever, Bella, and many “grand-dogs.”
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Elizabeth Brezenski, and her brother, Frank Manco.
