Each year, the race honors one individual from the Morningside area who has bravely and unselfishly served our country and/or its citizens. This year, tribute will be given to Frances Colletto. We thank Mrs. Colletto and her family for their sacrifices for our country and our city.Mrs. Colletto’s only son, Albert V. Colletto, Jr., was killed in action August 12, 1969. When she learned her son was killed in Vietnam, Mrs. Colletto started volunteering with the American Gold Star Mothers, a nonprofit service and support group for mothers of children who died in the military, and even became the president of the Allegheny County Chapter.In addition to the Gold Star Mothers, Mrs. Colletto was active with Vietnam Veterans Inc., the Patriot Guard Riders, Rolling Thunder, and the Order of the Purple Heart. The oldest registered Gold Star Mother in Pennsylvania and perhaps the nation, Frances DeCiancio Colletto died of complications from a stroke on Thursday, January 2, 2014. She was 99.

She is survived by daughters Carol Stewart of Morningside and Theresa Price of Gibsonia, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many nephews and nieces.
