Born in Corleone, Province of Palermo, Sicily, she lived in Solarino, Sicily for approximately 17 years where she had three of her four children.

The daughter of the late Lorenzo and Antoinetta (Vapore) Terzo, she was the wife of the late Concetto Teodoro. Pierina was energetic, creative and an expert seam stress. After a full day of work at Fafnir Bearing and making dinner preparations, she would excitedly cut out a new dress pattern, sew it and wear it the next day to work. She was the center of family gatherings providing abundant home cooked meals, including pots of sauce with meatballs and sausage, pizza and spinach pies. She was meticulous about her house and took pleasure in updating the interior furnishings with each changing season. Pierina was a warm and kind soul. She was grateful for all her friends, family and loved ones and those that helped her through her later years, including Patrycja, Ursula and especially Bozena.
