Lena (DeBello) Miller, age 90, of North East, Pa., died
on Sunday, July 7, 2019, at Saint Vincent Hospital. She
was born on February 9, 1929, in Oneonta, New York,
the daughter of the late Giovano and Conceta (Mastromonaco)
DiBello.
Lena graduated from Holley
High School in New York, where
she grew up, until she went on to
Rochester School of Business. She
began her career as an insurance
administrative assistant in Rochester,
New York, and after moving
to Pennsylvania, she began working
for First Federal Savings and
Loan as supervising head Teller
for many years. She started her
retirement by moving on to work
part-time at Horne’s Department
Store, which turned into Lazarus,
where she finally retired from. Lena
was appointed by the Governor and
the State of Pennsylvania as the
local registrar in North East for all
deaths in the State of Pennsylvania
for the past 30 years. She loved
spending time with her family, gardening,
flowers, cooking and baking.
Lena was preceded in death by her husband, Warren
Miller of North East (July 23, 2008); brothers, Ignatius
and Joseph DeBello; and sisters, Margaret Condoluci
and Victoria DiBello.
She is survived by her children, Cheryl Fisher

John Miller (Connie) of North East, and Leanne Miller
(Jerome Yankevich) of North East; brother-in-law,
Michael Miller (Phyllis) of South Carolina; grandchildren,
Daniel, Samuele, LeAnne, Jaime, Miles, Sara,
