´╗┐Ernestine A. Spinello,(nee Pordum) passed on September 22,2023. Known by many as Ernie . She was born on July 2, 1931 in Buffalo, NY to Edward Pordum and Annette Pordum (nee Podlas).

Ernestine was the first of three daughters raised in Western NY. She was  always the big sister beings the considerable age gap. She graduated from Bishop Colton HS, then later enjoyed working as an x-ray technician at Roswell park. She moved to the Philadelphia suburbs when her husband was transferred here in 1962. Ernie hated it at first  . She missed her family terribly and would visit frequently until the children started school. She adjusted nicely and was fortunate to have great neighbors. Good ole Moreland Manor. After years of raising her family she worked as a Sr Customer Service Representative for Prudential Insurance Co and loved it. She made lots of friends and blossomed. Her granddaughter was a treat  and she loved their weekly visits and Sponge Bob. She enjoyed her crossword puzzles, romance novels and CSI. Gloria Dei Farms was a great transition from the house and became home for 8 years with new friends and enjoyable surroundings.
