Laura Amadio Maneer, 71 of Tionesta, PA., joined the Communion of Saints with much grace and fanfare on August 9th, 2017.  She bravely fought a long and valiant battle with cancer.

Born July 9, 1946 in Warren, PA.  she was proceeded in death by her parents Dr. Angelo Ezio Amadio and Margaret Louise Saylor Amadio of Fryburg, her grandparents Steve and Mary Saylor of Warren, PA. and Biagio and Stamura Amadio of Philadelphia.  


After high school Laura attended Robert Morris Business College.  Later she studies and received a degree from Mercyhurst College in Liturgical Studies.


Laura had an unwavering faith in God and was a member of St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Tionesta.   Before her move to Tionesta, she had dedicated years of service to St. Michael's Catholic Church in Fryburg  as a liturgical minister and Confirmation instructor.


Laura spent many years working for her father in his medical practice in Fryburg as the office manager.  After his retirement, she went to work  at North Western Physical Therapy in Titusville in the billing department and retired from that position in 2015.


For over 25 years, Laura was a very active member of the National Society Daughters of the American Colonist. She served as National Chairman, Vice Regent for Pennsylvania State Society, and State Chaplian. 

Even while fighting the cancer, Laura had an active social schedule enjoying life to the fullest.  Laura's interest ranged from reading, to knitting, to  gardening, to going to the beach with her family, to watching the cooking channel and Leroy Jethro Gibbs on Tuesday nights, plus singing in the choirs at both St. Mike's and St. Anthony's.  Most of all, Laura loved spending time with family and friends.

She is survived by a daughter Amy M. and Bruce Peoples of Orlando, FL and sons Paul T.  and Sharon Maneer of Locust Grove, VA,  and William J. Maneer of Warrenton, VA.  Laura is also survived by four sisters: Terri Keister of Clarion, PA, Meg Clark of Newtown Square, PA, Mary Rose Lynn (Kenneth) of Montpelier, VA and Angela Brady (Rick) of Remington, VA. Laura has two brothers who survive as well: Blase Amadio of Mansfield, OH and Mark Amadio of Alexandria, VA.  Laura has four grandchildren that she loves and adores.


Friends will be received at the Faller Funeral Home, Inc. in Fryburg on Sunday, August 13, 2017 from 2-4pm and 7-9pm.

Laura and I went from 1st grade to 12 grade together. Enjoying many years after school with multiple outings to different places and having fun being together. We could always find something to laugh about when we where together. Rest in peace my friend until we meet again.

I met Laura as a child in her dad's office. It's was always a comfort to see her there. Her mother was my Sunday school teacher. She and I had talked on occasion. She was a wonderful loving person. She was down to earth . just a great lady.

My husband, Ray McGunigle, volunteers at the Cancer Center where he met Laura and had many pleasant talks with her. I couldn't help but laugh at the reference to Leroy Jethro Gibbs in her obituary. I'm sure that was a connection between her and Ray. Ray suggested Laura might like the Clarion Library Travel & Leisure Book Club. Laura took him up on the suggestion where I met her. I'm so glad to have met this lovely, vibrant person. With everything going on in her life, she traveled from Tionesta for our discussions. Also, Ray truly treasures the handmade scarf that Laura knitted for him. Our sympathies. Ray & Susan

Dear Family of Laura,
Laura sang in our Forest Area Community Choir, I was the one who sent messages to the choir. Laura was a sweet person and even though she was sick, she joined us when she could, but never complained. We were sad when Amy responded that she wouldn't be able to rehearse with us anymore. We performed last evening at the Praise & Worship Service that opened the Indian Festival. We left a seat empty in her memory. She has been missed by us all. Our sympathies go out to you.

Laura Family: you have my deepest sympathy for the passing of your mother from this life to her next with God her Father. I worked with her in 2005 to 2008 at Northwestern Physical Therapy and enjoyed the time we spent with each other. She always had a smile on her face no matter what was happening at the office. My husband and I enjoyed an invite from her to come to her home for a friendly gathering. I know you will greatly miss her but she talked about her mom often and now she can spend time in heaven with her. With deepest sympathy, Debbie
