Aug 10, 2022

Pia Rosa Tobia, 85, died peacefully on August 10, 2022, at Oakwood Nursing Home in Bay Minette Alabama. She was the wife of the late Emanuel E. Tobia. Born in Bologna, Italy, she was the daughter of the late Arnaldo and Gabriella Brighetti. She immigrated to the United States with her parents when she was 18 years old, settling in Wareham, Massachusetts, where she lived for almost her whole adult life, ran a small beauty salon and raised a family. She loved to cook and if you visited her home, you always left with a full belly. 

Survivors include her children Christian Tobia of Wareham, Barbara Vendetti and her husband Joseph Vendetti of Silverhill Alabama, her grandchildren Piper Tobia, Amanda & Jonathan Jackson. She was predeceased by her brother Robert Brighetti of Daphe, Alabama.

A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 or American Parkinson Disease Association, P.O. Box 61420, Staten Island, NY 10306
