October 26, 2021
Philadelphiaphia, Pennsylvania


Margaret T. Skiba (n'ee Petruccelli) passed away peacefully at her home with family by her side on October 26, 2021. She was 104 years old. Margaret was born September 14, 1917 in Philadelphia to Anna Maria (n'ee D'Achino) and Daniel Petruccelli. She is predeceased by her husband, Fred, son-in-law Dick Street and numerous loved ones. Margaret is survived by her two beloved children, Sandra Street and Fred Skiba (wife Diane and their children Rick, David and Tawny). She was the proud grandmother (Grandmom) to Mark Street (wife Gwenn), David Street (wife Jennifer) and two precious great grandchildren, Lauren and Kevin Street.

Margaret was a gifted seamstress in the silk tie industry and witnessed incredible changes to her world during her long life. She was vivacious, loved to laugh and had a gift for 'telling it like is'. She was truly 104 years young. Most importantly, she loved Jesus. Margaret was a loving and devoted Mother and Grandmother. She instilled strong Christian values in her family that continue to serve them well today. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
