Carbone and Mangini Family Missing Beloved Family Member and Employee Mary Ann Mangini

The Carbone family and staff and Mangini family are deeply saddened by the loss of Mary Ann Mangini. Mary Ann was the statuesque beautiful blonde who welcomed patrons to Carbone’s for over 50 years. During that time she has made friends with many of the guests whom she talked to and shared many stories with. Mary Ann has led a well traveled life, living in California, Alaska, New Mexico, and Hawaii when she visited her daughter Diane. Mary Ann’s children also helped us at the restaurant. Her son Dennis was a bartender for many years, and his twin Diane was a server. Her husband, Tony (Taw), also worked for the Mangini family business, Crabtree Oil, for many years as a driver. Mary Ann was so much more than an employee, she was a sister-in-law, an aunt, a friend, and a truly special person. Her passing leaves an emptiness in our hearts.

Mary Ann Mangini, 89, of Crabtree, died Wednesday, December 14, 2016 in Excela Health, Latrobe Hospital. She was born June 10, 1927 in Hannastown, a daughter of the late John and Anna (Humenansky) Vince.  Prior to retirement she had been the hostess and cashier at Carbone’s Restaurant in Crabtree.  She was a member of St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, Crabtree.  In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Anthony Joseph Mangini, on January 17, 1999; a son, Dennis Anthony Mangini; two brothers, John and Phillip Vince; and 2 sisters, Josephine Shylock and Anna Mae Dominick. She is survived by her daughter, Diane Mangini, of Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii; two brothers: Carl Vince and his companion Peg Del Vecchio, of Greensburg; and Robert Vince and his wife Mary Lou, of Hannastown; a brother in law, Rudolph Mangini and his wife Josephine, of Crabtree; a sister in law, Natalie Carbone Mangini, of Crabtree and several nieces and nephews.  Friends will be received from 4 to 8 PM Monday at the LEO M. BACHA FUNERAL HOME, INC., 516 Stanton Street, Greensburg.  Prayers will begin at 9:15 AM Tuesday in the funeral home, followed by a funeral mass to be celebrated at 10 AM in St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, Crabtree, with Rev. Justin Matro, OSB, as celebrant.  Interment will follow in Calvary Hill Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105-1942.   www.bachafh.com

Carbone III on June 20, 1959. Betty was walked down the aisle by her adoptive 90 year old grandfather, Glenn Grant Vance. She was a member of St. Bartholomew Church in Crabtree. She had many interests; she was an avid antique collector, she became a life master of Bridge, she loved her gardens and was a past officer of the Greensburg Garden Club. Chautauqua, N.Y., was her favorite place, where she served as the live in hostess of their women's club for many years. Betty loved people, traveling and entertaining. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her adoptive mother, Alberta V. Rogers; and her son, Natale J. Carbone IV.  She is survived by her loving husband Natale (Buz) Carbone III and adoptive sister Harriett (Susie) Rogers, daughter Beth (John) Evangeliste, grandchildren Helen Evangeliste, Emma (Charles) Roka, great-grandchild Gabriel.  Son Richard (Bernadette) Carbone grandchildren Christopher and Steven Carbone; a sister in law, Natalie Mangini; several nieces and nephews and her beloved cat Bailey.  Relatives and friends are invited to celebrate the life of Betty from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday in the CLEMENT L.

Parting prayers will be held at a time to be announced Saturday in the funeral home, followed by a funeral Mass to be celebrated at a time to be announced in the St. Bartholomew Church, with Father Justin Matro, OSB, celebrating.

Students are asking...How much will my bridge hold?

 

Bridges are being built for the 2015 Pasta Engineering Contest.

Carbone's is once again proud to sponsor the contest.  This engineering challenge is designed to increase high school students' awareness about design, fabrication and careers in engineering. The purpose is to have the students work together to determine the best strategy using the provided materials to design and construct the strongest bridge.

The competition and award presentation will take place on Monday, March 2nd, 2015 at 6:00 pm. At Saint Vincent College's Events and Conference Center at the Fred Rogers Center. Students, their parents, and everyone else are invited to join us for the judging of the bridges. 

We are anxiously waiting to see who can build the bridge that will break the current record of 109 pounds set in 2011.  If you want to see pictures of that bridge they are on our facebook page.  Photos from the last two contests are on the Saint Vincent College flikr page.
