SHARON, Pennsylvania (MyValleyTributes) – Margaret Provenzano, 75, of Sharon passed away Monday afternoon, November 6, 2023, in Quality of Life Services, New Castle.
Ms. Provenzano was born January 3, 1948, in Lima, Ohio, a daughter of the late Frank and Phyllis (Townsley) Provenzano.
She graduated high school in Baltimore, Maryland. She completed her undergraduate and graduate studies at Grove City College, ultimately earning a Master’s in Education.
Margaret worked in education for over 20 years. Firstly, for Sharon High School as a homebound tutor, specifically for students in advanced placement math and science classes. Later, she taught as a high school math teacher in North Carolina until her retirement in 2013.
One of her favorite hobbies was knitting and she especially enjoyed making blankets for each family member for their special event, such as a wedding or graduation. An exceptional baker, she made a variety of breads, cinnamon rolls and cakes but her specialty was her oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, which her children continue to make. An avid reader, Margaret also enjoyed taking part in medieval reenactments, singing and telling stories around the fire.
