Doris C. Pepicelli, 95, of Meadville, died Friday, February 21, 2020, at Wesbury in Meadville, PA.

She married Attorney John V. Pepicelli on January 11, 1953. He preceded her in death on December 1, 1997.

Doris spent her early childhood years in Elmira, NY, and then moved to Towanda, Pennsylvania, where she graduated from Towanda High School in 1943.

Doris was later employed as a ticket agent for TWA Airlines, with an office in the Penn Harris Hotel, Harrisburg. Her airline job began her love of travel, enabling her to fly to Cuba, and later she traveled to Italy, Brazil, Mexico, Spain and the Canary Islands. Doris and John also spent numerous winters in Pompano Beach and Marco Island, Florida.
She met John Pepicelli while he was attending Dickinson School of Law at Carlisle, PA, and following his graduation, they were married and moved to Meadville, John’s home town. Doris then worked for several years in the Office of Register and Recorder at the Crawford County Courthouse.
