December 13, 2020
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Mary A. DiSandro (nee Kortonick) passed away on December 13, 2020 at the age of 89. Beloved wife of the late Anthony P. DiSandro; loving mother of George Steele (Blanche), Deborah Bennett (Michael), Patricia Guarna (Vincenzo) and the late Lewis Steele (Margaret); cherished grandmother of Dawn (Michael), Nycole, Lisa, Samantha, Amanda, Allison, Victoria, Anthony, the late Dana and great-grandmother of Joseph, Emily, Michael, Nicholas, Connor, Matthew, Gracie, Adison and Gianna. She is also survived by her brother, Thomas Kortonick, and loving cousin, Joanie Burch.
A dedicated family woman, you would always find Mary enjoying her kids and most of all enjoying her grandchildren. There was never a family event that Mary missed, and she was most happy when everyone was together. Mary never said no to anything we asked of her. Whether it was making a pot of gravy, going for a ride, cleaning and preparing for a party, Mary was always willing to lend a helping hand. She was a devout Catholic who loved St. Matthew Parish. She sat in the same pew every Saturday for mass and she thoroughly enjoyed being there. Mary loved live music, tapping her feet and clapping her hands to the beat. She loved Wildwood, New Jersey and spent many years vacationing there. She enjoyed life and had a strong presence up until the end. She will be sorely missed every single day, but her memory will live on through her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Relatives and friends are invited to Mary's Life Celebration Saturday, December 19th, from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. at St. Matthew Church, 3000 Cottman Ave., Phila. PA 19149, followed by her Funeral Mass at 10:30 a.m. Interment private.
