Paul William McIlvaine 
Posted: Sunday, May 12, 2013 4:00 am 

Dr. Paul William McIlvaine, M.D. of Bristol Borough, 
died Friday, May 10, 2013, at Lower Bucks Hospital 
surrounded by his children and grandchildren. He was 88.

Paul attended St. Mark Catholic School in Bristol and 
North Catholic High School in Philadelphia, Pa. In 1943, 
he interrupted his studies to enlist in the United States Armed Forces. 
He was commissioned as a Navy Ensign serving in the Pacific 
on an underwater demolition team until 1946. 
After returning, he received his Bachelor of Science 
from LaSalle University. He graduated from 
Thomas Jefferson Medical College in 1952 
and two days later married the love of his life, Jane Curran McIlvaine.

Paul established his Family Medical Practice in the home he was raised, on Mulberry Street. Dr. McIlvaine dedicated the next 50 years of his life to the medical needs of the Lower Bucks County community. In 1954, Dr. McIlvaine participated in the development of Lower Bucks Hospital to bring advanced medical care to the area. During his years as a founding physician, he served as the Chairman of the Department of Family Medicine, President of the Medical Staff (1967-1970), the first doctor selected to serve on the hospital's Board of Directors (1989-1998) and was elected the President of the Board of Directors (1993-1995).

In addition to his professional commitments, he was an active member of St. Mark Parish and the Bucks County community. He served on the Bucks County Board of Health for 23 years, the Bristol Borough Civil Service Commission, and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Catholic Charities Appeal, and was a founding member of the Men of St. Mark's. In his 88 years, he attended church devoutly and found great comfort in his faith and congregation.

Together, Paul and Jane had eight children, Neal Joseph, Paul William Jr., Amelia Margaret 'Amy', Joan Curran, Mary Louise, John Francis, James Curran, and Andrew (deceased). They raised their family on Radcliffe Street in the comfort and familiarity of Bristol Borough.

Some of his fondest memories were the summers they spent in their home away from home, Long Beach Island.
In Paul's later years, you could find him sitting in his rocking chair, with a glass of ice tea beside him and a book on his lap. His home was a haven for old friends, neighbors, patients and anyone else who touched his life.
After almost 25 years apart, he is now with Jane again.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend his Funeral Mass, 11 a.m., Thursday, May 16, in St. Mark Church, 1025 Radcliffe St., Bristol, PA 19007.

Obituary for Josephine Cianciosi 
July 20, 1920 - March 10, 2017  







Josephine (JJ) Cianciosi died peacefully in her sleep in her home in Bristol Pennsylvania, in the early hours of March 10th 2017.

JJ lived her life with courage and perseverance, developing an extraordinary resiliency that will remain an inspiration to all who knew her. So many of her friends and family knew her as a gentle woman who welcomed everyone into her home. If you managed to stop by at dinner time, you always had a seat at the table - and if you dared to refuse the invite you would be gently reminded of the offer until you relented and were fed.

In her early years she worked to support her parents and sisters, and did so with little complaint. With her small stature she managed to get herself the nickname "Peanut" - a little known fact to even her closest family members.

JJ always had a mischievous streak - she met her husband to be while sneaking into a fair in Bristol, and together they began a journey that would give them a small business, a comfortable home, and a perfect daughter - with a slightly less than perfect daughter to follow as a bonus 13 years later. A dedicated daughter, wife and mother, JJ lived with her eldest daughter in the home she created and loved until the end of her life. 

JJ was preceded in death by her husband Michael Cianciosi, her sister Lucy Chianese and brother Leonard Margari. She is survived by her two daughters Gioia and Michela Cianciosi, daughter-in-law Roz Wright, Sisters Aletha Loncosky and Rose Sutor, and numerous nieces and nephews. 

She was loved deeply and will be missed by all who knew her. 

Family and friends are invited to attend her visitation on March 13, 2017 from 9am-10:30am at St. Ann Church, located at 357 Dorrance St., Bristol, PA 19007. A Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 10:30am. JJ will be laid to rest with her beloved husband at St. Mark Cemetery following Mass. In lieu of flowers, contributions in her name may be made to a foundation that rescues animals or acts on their behalf. To post photos, share a memory, or send an online condolence, please visit www.moldenfuneralchapel.com.

"Sad News, Anthony Mandio, a Bristol native son has passed away. He served with the highest distinct as the Solicitor for the Bristol Borough School District for over 50 years. He was a Bristol High School classmate and lifelong friend of my father and he always treated me like his own family. He served his Country as a paratrooper in the 82 Airborne division during the massive invasion that started with D-day. I often asked him about his deployments, and he was very humble about this subject. His answer was that he was deployed in North Africa, and that he was a very lucky man, and that he saw much loss of life. I am thankful for all the good advice and wise counsel he gave to me in my life, he had a keen sense of right and wrong, and lived his life with respect for others and a deep love for his family. Please keep his family in your prayers."   John Chic D'Angelo
