Annette M. Profeto

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Annette M. Profeto (74) (nee Beltz) of Upper Chichester, PA formerly of Ridley Park, PA on September 29, 2022, surrounded by family and friends.
Annette is survived by her husband of 54 years, David, daughter Jean Marie Profeto of Brookhaven, PA, son Andrew Profeto of Upper Chichester, PA, grandson Michael Sanchez Jr. of Fayetteville, NC, granddaughter Christina Reeves (Alan) of Eddystone, PA, Jason D. Stabulis of Clifton Heights, and great-grandsons Aiden and Tyler, with a third on the way.
Annette was dedicated to her family, children, and grandchildren. She attended St. Rose of Lima School, Eddystone, PA and graduated from Notre Dame High School. Annette and David met in elementary school; they married in December 1968 in California. After starting a family in 1969 of their first-born daughter, Jean Marie, it was decided to return to Pennsylvania in 1970. Their second child, son, Andrew was born in 1972. Grandchildren followed throughout the 90’s, she was elated to witness their births and enjoyed spending every moment with them. Annette enjoyed travelling, particularly scuba diving in Bonaire. Annette loved spending hours in her beautiful gardens, enjoying the beautiful outdoors and nature, including decorating for all the holidays, and visiting her beloved friends with great joy. As a woman of true faith, Annette was active in the Roman Catholic church as a Eucharistic Minister, she felt specially blessed to bring the eucharist to the homes those in need. She was on the Charismatic Prayer team at St Thomas the Apostle and her prayer partner was her son Andrew. Annette was an extraordinary woman and known for her deep devotion to the Blessed Mother, she always had a rosary in her hand or pocket. She embraced life with love, joy and her beautiful smile brought so much happiness and light to any room she entered. Her soft voice was always comforting and had a way to get anyone through the toughest of times, no matter the situation. She was always loving, kind, gentle and comforting to those she met. Annette has gained her heavenly reward and we will treasure her forever in our hearts.
