Adelheid "Heidi Ebinger Allessie" Triana

March 4, 1940 ~ July 30, 2023 (age 83) 83 Years Old


Adelheid (“Heidi Ebinger Allessie”) Triana, 83, went to be with her Lord and Savior after a courageous battle with cancer on July 30, 2023, with her family by her side. She was a fighter and fought to the end. Heidi was born in Augsburg, Germany on March 4, 1940. She was the daughter of the late Otto Ebinger and the late Adelheid Ebinger (Hamp). In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Staff Sergeant, Joseph Allessie (U.S. Army), who was killed in action during the Vietnam War, her brother, Helmut, and a son-in-law, Tom “Gonzo” Gonzales.

She is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Carl Triana and children, Tommy Allessie (Corie) of North East, PA, Martina (Allessie) Gonzales of North East, PA, Joseph Allessie (Sheryl) of Chicago, IL, Richard Allessie of North East, PA, and Daniel Triana (Jill) of Ripley, NY. Carl and Heidi raised their family in North East, PA. She is further survived by her grandchildren, Jonathan Allessie (Rui) of Pittsburgh, PA, Cassandra (Allessie) Mott of Pittsburgh, PA, Bosha Allessie of Columbia, South Carolina, Ardyn Allessie of Ringwood, NJ and Cody Triana of Ripley, NY and several great grandchildren.

Heidi was raised in Germany during the back end of World War II. She was very proud of her German heritage. After living in the U.S. for many years, she became a naturalized U.S. citizen. Heidi spent her life raising her children and will be remembered as a caring, fun-loving dedicated mother and grandmother. She greatly cherished her husband, children and grandchildren and spending time with them. All of her sons were affectionately called “momma’s boys” and her daughter was her best friend. She loved talking to everyone, whether she knew you, met you for the first time, or were a stranger on the street. People were drawn to her personality and her German accent. Heidi was a long-time member of the North East Baptist Church and most recently the First Baptist Church of Ripley, NY. She was formerly employed and volunteered at the Erie City Mission. In addition, she volunteered at the North East Food Pantry and Brevillier Village. She was a volunteer and member of the Board of Humble Heart Ministries for many years. Heidi will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her.
