October 19, 1944October 1, 2019

Kathleen “Rebel” Teeple Monastero, age 74, of Berwyn, PA went home to Jesus on October 1, 2019. She was born to the late George Raymond Teeple and Kathleen Cecile Teeple on October 19, 1944 in New Orleans, LA. Kathleen graduated from Radnor High School in 1962, where she made lifelong friendships. While attending Wesley College she worked at the Devereux School in Devon, PA where she met her husband of 52 years, Sal Monastero. Soon Sal was drafted into the US Army and was stationed at the Presidio in San Francisco, CA. Kathleen became a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines and would frequently fly to San Francisco from Washington, DC. Despite Sal’s Army service and their long-distance relationship they were wed on July 1, 1967 at the Villanova University Chapel. Family and friends were Kathleen’s passion and delight. She was a very loved and appreciated homemaker who had an art for entertaining. Kathleen was a social tennis player both at Waynesborough Country Club and in Ocean City, New Jersey. She was also an active member of Community Bible Study in Wayne, PA. Kathleen was predeceased by her son Todd Monastero. She is survived by her daughter, Kimberly Stanton (Scott); son, Craig Monastero (Amber), daughter Courtney Roc (Reginald) and daughter-in-law Jill. Also survived by ten grandchildren: Jessica, Tyler, Kristen and Sal Monastero; Kyle, Katherine, Jonathan and Luke Stanton and Madison and Makenna Monastero. In addition she is also survived by her three adored half-siblings Mark Teeple (Enumclaw, WA), Nancy Vercammen (Bakersfield, CA) and Tanya Santana (Tacoma, WA). The family wishes to thank all of those who cared for her during the last few years of her life. A Memorial Service will be celebrated in memory of Kathleen on Saturday, November 2nd at 10:00 a.m., at Church of the Saviour in Wayne, PA. The family will greet guests beginning at 9am.
