Giuseppina Marsala (Ruffino), passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 21, 2023.  She was 85.


Giuseppina was born and raised in Carini, Sicily, Italy.  Although she only had an 8th grade education, she was very intelligent and skilled.  In Carini, she taught the children vocabulary, reading & writing.  She earned her certificate in the art of sewing and was very proud of her accomplishment.  In 1973, after marrying the love of her life, Salvatore, the whole family moved to Center County Pennsylvania.  In 1979, they opened up the family business in Quakertown,  Pizza Randa.  This is where everyone in town hung out, especially the Marsala family.  She helped run the business and was always running the kitchen!


She is the beloved Wife of the late Salvatore; loving mother of Carmela Marsala Griffo (Joseph) & Joseph Marsala (Susan); cherished grandmother of Joshua Marsala, Julia Griffo, Dr. Adam Marsala & Claudia Griffo; dear sister of Maria Stella Marsala and sister-in-law to Vito Marsala, both in Carini, Sicily, Italy.  Special Aunt to Stella Randazzo, Joseph “Pino” Ruffino, Franco Ruffino, Mariella Merenda (Goddaughter), Salvatore Marsala, Joseph “Pino” Marsala & Carmela Marsala.
