Carmella Bencivenga

July 29, 1925 ~ August 16, 2019 (age 94)




Age 94, of Oakmont, passed away peacefully on Friday, August 16, 2019, surrounded by her family.  Beloved wife of the late John A. Bencivenga, Sr.; loving mother of the late Dr. John A. Bencivenga, Jr. and the late Diane Kennedy.  Carmella is survived by her grandchildren Natalie (David Passafiume) Bencivenga, Nicholas (Anna) Bencivenga, Mia Bencivenga, Taylor Kennedy, and Ross Kennedy; daughter-in-law Patricia S.

She was the sister of Dolly (the late Joe) Ignelzi, Anthony (Agnes) Zaccari, the late Amelia (the late Charles) Pagano, the late Antoinette (the late Alex) Costantino, and the late Theresa (the late Dominic) Mangone.  Carmella was an avid tennis and golf player, who found the laughter and joy in every moment. She made everyone around her feel special with her kind and loving spirit.  She loved volunteering with Christian Mothers and Meals on Wheels, and was an active part of her community.  Carmella taught us all to embrace the moment and enjoy our lives with gratitude.
