Gena Marie (Castellucci) Grandinetti, 58, of Shillington, earned her angel wings on December 7, 2019 with her family by her side. Gena was born in West Reading, PA to parents Harry Castellucci Sr., and Marie (DeStasio) Castellucci. She graduated from Wyomissing High School in 1979 and worked at Encompass/CNA for 32 years. A loving mother and grandmother, a devoted wife, and a loyal friend are just a few of the remarkable qualities that made her so special. Gena’s greatest pride and joy was her family. She loved her role as Mom-Mom, and cherished making memories with her grandson, Charlie, and her Australian Shepard, Dino. She also enjoyed taking family trips to Disney World, Cape May, and Myrtle Beach. She loved the Flintstones, Bruce Springsteen, food festivals, and spending time with the family and friends she cherished most. She had a gentle soul and a kind and generous heart and will be missed more than words can describe. Gena is survived by her husband, Salvatore Grandinetti; daughter Terri Marie Comeau and her husband Jason of Shillington PA; grandson Charlie; stepdaughter Megan Grandinetti; brother Thomas Castellucci and his wife Marjorie of Jonestown, PA; brother Harry Castellucci Jr., and wife Joanne of Sinking Spring, PA; nieces Jamie Ricker, Mary Jo Gehret, Jennifer Stump, Tracy Dietz, Jessica Malik, and Rebecca Lopez, nephew Samuel Castellucci, along with many more extended family members.
