Mother of 'Survivor: Amazon' winner and 'Survivor: All Stars' contestant Jenna Morasca loses her battle with cancer
By Reality TV World staff, 11/23/2003
We're sad to report that Carla Morasca, 48, of Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, died peacefully on Wednesday, November 19, 2003. Morasca was the mother of Jenna Morasca, the 22-year-old winner of this spring's Survivor: The Amazon series who frequently mentioned her mother's battle with cancer as one of her primary motivations for competing for the program's $1,000,000 grand prize.
Besides her husband Michael and Jenna, Mrs. Morasca also leaves her mother Terri (Ferraro) and father Gilio John DaPra; her brothers Dennis DaPra and Dan DaPra; sisters Diane Pierrard and Annette Lewis; and several nieces and nephews. Mrs. Morasca enjoyed cooking and won several awards with her cooking skills. She was also an avid volunteer in local schools and her community. The family suggests that memorial donations be made to The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, P. O. Box 650309, Dallas, TX 75265.
