Funeral Card Friday – Anna Furlani Profit (1894 – 1973)

Posted by: Eileen A. Souza

I received this funeral card when I attended the funeral of my grandmother, Anna Furlani Profit nee Bianchi. As you can see, I made the mistake of keeping it my missal since then and now there is print on it that I can’t remove. Since I discovered this mistake, all my funeral cards currently reside in separate archival quality sleeves in a binder.

My grandmother was born on 16 January 1894 in Atlas, Mount Carmel Township, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. She is the daughter of Bonaventura Bianchi, of Italy, and Maria Bunt Bianchi, of Bohemia. On 20 September 1911, at the age of 17, she married Candido (Condy) Furlani in St. Peter’s RC church in Atlas, Northumberland, Pennsylvania. After Condy’s death in 1938, she married Walter Profit in 1962.

After several strokes, Anna passed away on 21 March 1973 at the age of 79. She is buried next to my grandfather, Condy, in St. Peter’s cemetery, Mount Carmel, Northumberland, Pennsylvania. I visit her grave every time I go up there on a research trip. She is still missed.
