Margaret Halo

Margaret Halo, 100, of Punxsutawney, passed away Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018, at home.

She was born July 15, 1917, in Adrian, a daughter of the late Anthony and Vera Corrine.

Margaret was the wife of Joseph Edward Halo. He preceded her in death in 2007.

Mrs. Halo was Catholic by faith and was a member of Saints Cosmas and Damian Catholic Church. She lived independently at home for her entire life. Her being able to remain in her own home was deeply enriched by the many friends and neighbors who graciously helped her in many ways.

Margaret will be remembered for “the most famous and delicious homemade chocolate cake,” which cannot be duplicated by anyone else. In her earlier years, she enjoyed playing piano and knitting.

She is survived by two children, Yvonne Marie Berry of Denham Springs, Louisiana, and Edward Joseph Halo, Jr. and wife Susan of Pittsburgh; four grandchildren, Julia and Olivia Halo, Laura Schnanke and Tracy Bosco; and two great-grandchildren, Cole and Conner Schnanke.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Edward; two brothers, William and Eugene Corrine; and one sister, Lynn Roach.

Friends will be received from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Tuesday, January 16, 2018, at Shumaker Funeral Home, Inc., Punxsutawney.

A funeral mass will be held at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday at Saints Cosmas and Damian Catholic Church. Interment will follow at Calvary Cemetery, Punxsutawney.
