Bill & Arlene Porzio (Schroepfer)
From Melbourne, Florida. Formerly from Clairton and South Side PA respectively. They began their life together here on earth on April 26, 1958 at St. Michaels church on the South Side of Pittsburgh. They began their life together in heaven on March 27, 2021. They were together at Life Care Center of Melbourne. Arlene passed at 9:30 Saturday morning. Bill passed at 3:00 in the afternoon. Arlene can’t figure out why Bill was 5 ½ hours late arriving at the pearly gate.
They are survived by son Brad (Trish), daughters Lori and Launa (Mike), grandchildren Brittany (Travis), Jordan and Mariah, great grandchildren Summer and Wyatt as well as many cousins and dear friends.
Arlene was a graduate from William Rainey Harper College in Palatine, IL in Nursing. She worked as a nurse then Marketing Manager for Manor Care in many states and Admissions Director for The Children’s Institute in Shadyside, PA.
Bill, a graduate from Carnegie Mellon University, was an Engineer for U.S. Steel in Pittsburgh, then for Kaiser Engineers and Brown and Root in Chicago. He wrapped up his career at Brevard County Parks & Recreation upgrading community parks in Melbourne, FL.
They spent their final 20 years following Arlene’s dream of living on the water overlooking the Indian River, Patrick Air Force Base, the Pineda Causeway and the dolphins that played in their backyard.
A celebration of life will be held in Pittsburgh on a to be determined date this summer. You may sign Bill and Arlene’s guestbook at www.beckmanwilliamson.com
