Teresa (Meta) Rosata Hatt, 92, of Sewickley and Cape Coral, FL, passed peacefully on Saturday on July 18, 2020 at Good Samaritan Hospice House. Born in Sewickley on September 7, 1927, she was one of four to the late Salvatore "Samuel" and Verna (Russo) Meta. Teresa was preceded in death by her two cherished husbands, John Rosata who passed on May 14, 1971 (married 24 years) and William Hatt who passed on March 22, 2010 (married 33 years). In addition to her parents and spouses, she was preceded in death by her well-loved granddaughter Tara Harpold and her brother Anthony Meta. Teresa is survived by her beloved children Sandra Harpold (Robert), Christine Warman (Bob), Cynthia Yingling (Douglas) and James Hatt;  four devoted grandchildren Amber Mackey (Brian),  Shanna Carelli, Morgan and Tyler Yingling; three great grandchildren J.R. and Austin Harpold and Blaine Sams her two sisters Jeanne Sekanick and Peggy Welte (Jim); along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and lots of friends. Teresa was a member of St. James Church & the Women`s Guild, Harmony Lodge, LOOF in Rochester, Italian American Club, and the Elegante Club. She retired in 1989 from the IRS where she had been a long-time revenue agent. Many years ago, she and her mom Verna Meta ran the Edgeworth Corner Store, selling penny candy. For enjoyment, Teresa played cards in several card groups, loved bocce, bowling, and was known to occasionally gamble. So well said by her niece, "Teresa always had a seat at her table, enough food to feed an Army and stories for days". A private Family Mass was held at St. James Church followed by burial in St. James Cemetery. Arrangements by Copeland`s Sewickley
