Eleanor M. Dorazio (nee Barbetta), 91, of Latrobe, and long-time resident of Derry, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on December 22, 2021. She was born August 29, 1930, in Mather, PA, a daughter of the late Carmine Barbetta and Julia Barbetta. She is preceded in death by her husband, Joseph F "Dizz" Dorazio Jr., son, Gery D. Dorazio, and siblings Tony Barbetta, Arthur Barbetta, Mario Barbetta, Matilda Barbetta and Delores "Dolly" Reda. Eleanor loved to tell everybody that she was born and raised on the farm-and proud of it! Known for her homemade pasta, pizzelles and fetucci, she loved to cook for her family, who was her life. She loved to read the Bible and her favorite scripture reference is Lamentations 3:22-23 - "It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness." She is survived by four sons, David Dorazio and his wife, Phyllis, of Aledo, TX; Dennis Dorazio and his wife, Cindy, of Latrobe; Mark Dorazio and his wife, Monica, of San Antonio, TX; and Joseph F.
