Lower Burrell Teacher Dies After Falling From Roof In Mexico

Rest In Peace my amazing beautiful little sister, Sharon Regoli Ciferno. She passed about an hour ago from the horrific trauma from her fall. My family is devastated and heart broken. Please keep us all in your prayers. She died very peacefully with her husband John and her children as well as my parents and me holding her hands and praying over her. Now we need prayers of strength to come to grips with our loss. Through her generous gift of life, at least 5 people will have the opportunity to live on with some of her organs. Please pray for those who are receiving her organs tonight that they live a better life by being touched by Sharon.
