By Gilbert Funeral Home and Crematory | Posted in: Gilbert Funeral Home and Crematory

Margaret “Peggie” (Rollason) Kugler, 93, passed away peacefully on the morning of July 28, 2021 at home surrounded by her family and loved ones. Born July 24th, 1928 in Buena Vista, Pennsylvania she was the only child of Elsie (Yost) Davenport and Roy Rollason. A 1946 graduate of McKeesport High School, she was a  woman with enormous love for family, faith, her 1980 Ford Mustang, handbags and shoes. To us she was a fashion icon. Never a hair out of place, her purse and shoes never clashed. Boy, did she know how to accessorize! Peggie had an affinity for floral centerpieces and made many beautiful arrangements for the altars and stages for Wesley United Methodist Church. Her home was decorated beautifully with center pieces as well and at Christmas time….. One can imagine the beautiful pieces she would have placed throughout the house. Peggie was the family historian. Anything that you ever wanted to know about her family she had the answer for. She knew who was married to whom and who the cousin is of the aunt no one ever heard of in that other state? Peggie and her late husband Fred were both on the building committee of Wesley United Methodist Church on Prescott Street in White Oak, Pennsylvania. She was that church’s secretary for over 25 years. She was a member of the Eastern Star and a Boom-Bah group that would go around to various nursing homes and entertain the residents. Peggie loved dancing, traveling, and meeting new people. After you met her you were never again going to be a stranger and she would always remember your name. In addition to working for her church, she also worked for PNC Bank, Ames, Zayres, G.C. Murphy Co., Immel’s, and S.S. White. Peggie volunteered at the Elizabeth Forward Historical Society and the McKeesport Regional History and Heritage Center. She made sure that her family never missed a meal and never could understand how many of us survived without breakfast especially since she would always say how her husband would “turn into a pumpkin” if supper was a tad bit late. There was always ice cream in the freezer and a cake on the counter.

By Administrator | Posted in: Obituary

Glenda Lee (Bereczky) Busch, 68, of White Oak, finished her journey on this Earth today, July 15, 2021. She spent a little over a year bravely battling pancreatic cancer without ever showing how much pain she was in. To the end, she thought of others and did not want them to worry about her. She leaves behind her loving soul mate of 50 years, her husband, James. Two of her proudest accomplishments were her son, Jesse (Erin Morey) Busch, of Mt. Lebanon, and daughter, Rachael (Kathy) Morgan, of Versailles Borough.

Her eyes lit up every time she saw her only grandson, Max Busch, and enjoyed nothing more than spending time with him. He rightfully won the “My Glenda” debate in her life.

Glenda was the baby sister of twins, Sally (Frank) Shebeck, of Farrell, and Sue (Paul) Tkac, of White Oak. She was a good friend to sister-in-law, Peggy Rollason, of N. Versailles. She cherished her role as aunt to Bobby Rollason, J.P. (Pam) Tkac, Chris Tkac, Victoria (Jamme Magyar) Tkac, Stacey (Scott) Gill, Marcy (Nick) VanSickles, and Adam (Brittany) Shebeck.

She doted on her many great nieces and nephews, and even had a couple of great, great ones too. Glenda wanted her Toodle Bug to know that, “Toodle Bug will always love you.”

She appreciated the artistic eye of Gabriel Szafranski, who grew to be family over the last two years. She wanted to thank her anonymous angel, Susan Schonfeld, for having such a loving and generous heart. Her family would like to extend grateful appreciation to Amedysis Hospice and her primary nurse, Leslie Gore, for helping her through the end of the journey with love, respect, and dignity.

Ronald E. Peduzzi

July 14, 2021 |

By James W. Shirley Funeral Home Inc. | Posted in: James W. Shirley Funeral Home

On July 13, 2021, Heaven welcomed Ronald E. Peduzzi, husband, father, father-in-law, brother, uncle, cousin, teacher, principal, coach, friend and last, but certainly not least, Marine.  Simply put, Ron was an institution, a force of nature and a true example of a life well lived.  Even during these past few years, he remained a real fighter.  There is not enough room in this column to share all the wonderful stories about Ron but, luckily, those stories will live on in our memories.   

Ron's story began on August 17, 1933 when he was born to Reynold and Anna Peduzzi.  Ron and his twin brother, Rey, joined their brother Carl (Chief) and their sister Joanne (Sis) at the Peduzzi home in Trafford, Pennsylvania.  Ron loved working with his father and his brothers on their model trains and helping out at the family's garage, Reynold's Motor Company, in East Pittsburgh.  But Ron loved even more his mother's cooking, especially her renowned nut bread and chicken rice soup.  Ron excelled at sports, including football, baseball and basketball.  After graduation from Trafford High School in 1951, Ron went on to attend Geneva College.  During his time at Geneva, the football team had one of its best records ever and he was honored as a member of the Geneva College All-Time Football Team and the Tri-District College First Football Team.  After graduating from Geneva College in 1955, Ron was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps,  He served in Korea and retired from the Marine Corps Reserve, after a proud 30-year career, as a full-bird Colonel.  

His love of the Corps was rivaled only by his love for Carolyn, his beloved wife of over fifty-three years, and his love for his three beautiful daughters: Mary, Lauren and Anita.  Ron and Carolyn never lost the spark after meeting on a blind date in 1965, and his daughters idolized their father.  The stories of Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners surrounded by his family and friends could fill volumes.  Ron was a lucky man to have Carolyn and his daughters by his side these last few days.  

After receiving his Master’s Degree in Education from the University Pittsburgh, Ron went on to become Assistant Principal of Greater Latrobe High School and then served as Principal of his beloved Norwin Knights for 25 wonderful years (1971 to 1996).  Ron also received his principal certification from Duquesne University.  Ron served as President of the Association of Secondary School Principals, and was the recipient of the Citizen of the Year Award from the Norwin Rotary Club, which honored him for his distinguished service over the years to the community.  But, above all else, Ron was a true mentor to so many students and members of the faculty, whether he was teaching math, serving as a coach of the baseball and football teams or while at the helm in the role of Principal.  Indeed, the outpouring of support he received these past few months in cards and letters from students and teachers over the years illustrated how much he was loved by--and how much he truly loved--the Norwin community.   

After his retirement, Carolyn and Ron traveled the world, spanning Japan, China, Russia, and most of Europe.  In one epic adventure, he, Carolyn, along with his siblings and their spouses, drove up to the beautiful mountains of Northern Italy to visit, among other picturesque spots, the Peduzzi family province of Schignano.  Ron and Carolyn later moved to the sunny shores of Swansboro, North Carolina where they lived for 16 wonderful years. During that time, Ron honed his life-long love of racquetball by challenging much younger Marines on the courts at Camp Lejeune (and beating them).  He also volunteered at a men's shelter and lent his time and considerable wood-working skills to build a camp for children from under-served communities.  Ron continued to work in his garage, building beautiful pieces of furniture that proudly adorn Carolyn's and his daughter's homes. 

Importantly, Ron's story does not end here--it lives on.  Those of us who had the pleasure to know Ron know well how much of a positive influence he had on those around him.  He loved life, found joy in the simple things and would give someone the shirt off his back. He was an amazing presence and his legacy will live on in the innumerable lives he touched.  Ron was welcomed into Heaven by his loving parents, his older brother Carl and his wife Agnes, his Cousin Cel, Sis' husband Harry, his grand-daughter Janie Margaret Ryan, and countless other family and friends.  His receiving line at the Pearly Gates must have been remarkable.  

Ron had many wonderful sayings, but one in particular sums him up perfectly: "First class all the way."  Ron, you will always be "first class all the way" in our book. You will be truly missed.  Semper Fidelis and God Bless.   

Family and friends will be received from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday at the James W. Shirley Funeral Home, 176 Clay Pike, North Huntingdon.  A Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Saturday at 10 a.m. in Immaculate Conception Church, Irwin.  The funeral procession will proceed thru the Norwin Senior High School Campus at 9:30 a.m. for those students and teachers who would like to say farewell to Mr. Peduzzi.  Interment to follow after the mass in Irwin Union Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Camp Lejeune Fisher House for Wounded Warriors, 4 Recovery Way, Camp Lejeune, NC  28547.  www.shirleyfuneralhome.com

Beloved son of Ernest Warren and Antoinette Serrapere Warren. Loving fiancé of Erika Falbo. Loving father of Ryder and Roman. Dear brother of Jamie (Chris) Grant. Nephew of Angel (Leo) King, Nicoletta (Damian) Marasco, Vicky Cardenas, David (Chris) Warren, and Lisa (Doug) Zeik. Also survived by many cousins.

For many years Jesse fought a long battle with addiction. A battle in which the enemy is merciless and unrelenting. Jesse’s addiction ultimately claimed his young life. A kind-hearted spirit with all the potential in the world overshadowed by the grasp heroin held over his life. Our family brings this to light out of choice and for all to realize no one is immune to the opioid and heroin epidemic. Jesse did not want to leave this world behind. We all wished he had recognized his many talents and saw himself in the way that his friends and family always did. Our family fought the only ways we knew how and as hard as we could. We rest easy knowing his struggle is now over and true peace may begin.

Richard “Rick” C. Bean Jr., age 66, passed away peacefully at his home in Forward Twp. on Monday, July 5, 2021. He is survived by his wife and best friend of 38 years, Maureen (Pastor) Bean, who cherished him as her soulmate and was his loving caretaker at the time of his illness. He loved the hobbies they enjoyed together, including riding his Harley, traveling to their much-loved Dewey Beach, and attending as many summer music events as possible with a dance or two. He took great pride in the accomplishments and interests of his daughter Brittany and son Matt. He was both his wife’s and children’s quiet strength and champion.

Maureen’s passion for animal rescue quickly rubbed off on Rick and he could never turn down a long drive to add furry friends to the family, sometimes as big as a horse. Some of the greatest joys of his life were dancing to “My Girl” with his daughter at her wedding and helping his son turn his first home into the farm of his dreams.

He was employed by Famous Supply and Plotkin Brothers and was a swimming official for the PIAA and WPIAL for 25 years. Born May 12, 1955 in McKeesport, he was a son of the late Richard C. Bean Sr. and Elizabeth (Brannigan) Bean.

In 2014 she moved to Florida to live near her son and his family. There she grew to love the beach, went on many adventurous road trips with them and furthered her Biblical education with their ministry, King's Gate Church. She supported their ministry and volunteered there as well. She never stopped, she was full of life, full of love, very honest and firm in her beliefs, a great encourager, very generous, leaving a piece of her heart with all those she knew. She is forever in our hearts and greatly missed.
