Laura Vesco Parillo

Laura Vesco Parillo, 58, of Derry passed away Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020, in her own home surrounded by her loving family.

She was born Jan. 17, 1962, in Latrobe.

Laura’s passions included being a nursing home administrator at the nursing home she had opened with her husband, watching her children perform in theatre arts and making people laugh.

Laura was preceded in death by her loving mother and father, Carol Tobias Vesco and Richard Edward Vesco, and is survived by her incredibly loving husband, John Simone Parillo (married for 34 years), and beautiful children, Mia Carol Parillo, Gino Giovanni Parillo and Sophia Ann Parillo; her brother, Richard Wayne Vesco and his wife, Sandra Vesco, niece and nephew, Courteney Bayer (Vesco), Rocco Vesco and Tyson Bayer; her sister-in-law, Simona Parillo; nephew, Christopher Erfort, and brother-in-law, Bill McLaughlin. We are comforted that Laura is once again at peace with her loving mother, father and family.

Laura had an infectious energy about herself; everyone that knew her instantly fell in love with her sense of humor and ability to touch their hearts and souls. She found profound tranquility spending time near the beach or by curling up on the couch laughing with her family. She devoted her entire life to her children, husband and parents. Laura will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Family will receive friends 3 to 6 p.m. Monday in the McCabe Funeral Home, 300 W. Third Ave., Derry. The Altar Rosary Society will recite the rosary 2:30 p.m. A funeral Mass will be celebrated 10 a.m. Tuesday in St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, Derry, with the Rev. Salvatore R. Lamendola as celebrant.

Interment will follow in the St. Joseph Church Cemetery, Derry.
