Elaine M. Prybella, of Philadelphia, passed away on Tuesday evening, July 27, 2021. She was 91 years old. Elaine was born on July 19, 1930 in Philadelphia to the late Robert A. Casciato and Emily M. (née Koch) Casciato and was the wife to the late Robert W. Prybella, Sr. She was a graduate of John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls High School and worked as a Benefits Manager for Central Penn Bank, now Meridian Bank. In her free time, Elaine enjoyed cooking, baking, gardening, sewing, crocheting, taking endless family photos and movies, and volunteering at her children's schools. She will be fondly remembered as a role model for her strong faith and as a family-oriented mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend. Elaine was known for her humor and strong character, and she never shied away from voicing her opinion. You could always count on her to stand up for what she believed was right.
