Anna (Leto) Colombo, 85, of Philadelphia passed away on January 4, 2021. Beloved wife of the late Michael A. Colombo. Loving mother of Al Colombo, Tina Reilly (Tom, Sr.), Angela Bean and Michelle Stack (Tony).

Anna lived her early years in South Philadelphia with her family. They soon moved up to the northeast where she attended Abraham Lincoln High School. She started working at her father's business Leto Cleaners. In her later teen years she was introduced to, and fell in love with Michael Colombo the love of her life. They remained happily married for 48 blessed years living most of their life in the Somerton section of Philadelphia. Anna enjoyed many activities, especially her many vacations with their four children to Wildwood every year throughout the 70's, followed by their yearly trips to Florida and Disney World. But her greatest enjoyment has always been with her family and friends. She was an awesome and intricate part of her family's life until her passing. But mostly she loved spending time with her beautiful children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who loved her dearly.
