Glenda Lee (Bereczky) Busch

July 16, 2021 |

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.

Barbara A. Strucker

June 30, 2021 |

By Administrator | Posted in: Obituary

Barbara A. Strucker, age 84, of Port Vue passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 27, 2021.

Beloved wife of 61 years to John R. Strucker; loving mother of Denice and David Pazuchanics; devoted Grammie of Alexander and Michelle Pazuchanics and Nicholas Pazuchanics; daughter of the late George and Mildred Beck; sister of Paul (Evelyn) Beck, Helen (Ray) Brown, Jay (Cynthia) Beck and the late Marie (Fred) Wilson, Joe (Joan) Beck, Bill (survived by Emma) Beck, Ruth (Joe) Lucas, Rosemae (Jack) Bowers, Angie (survived by Bill) Doherty, George Beck, Bruce (survived by Janet) Beck and Anna Marie (John) Wheeler.  Also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and their families. 

Barbara was honored to be a graduate of St Francis nursing school in Bloomfield. She worked as a registered nurse at McKeesport Hospital for over 30 years, in both the Behavior Health Unit and then as a medical surgical nurse.  She was an avid supporter of the Port Vue Athletic Association - cheering on her husband's beloved Blue Rock teams, working in the concession stand, or coaching her own girls softball teams. The community of friends that formed there became her extended family. Barb became a professional fan of her grandchildren. She was thrilled to watch many live performances, concerts and high school musicals, and tried to not miss any of them. She watched many soccer, volleyball and basketball games as well, not exactly a quiet fan - she was especially helpful if a referee missed a call. In recent years, Barbara most loved spending time with her family. She taught all of us the value of friendships and being passionate about your beliefs. She was generous with her time and talents to many local organizations, and always available to anyone who needed her. Her sense of humor and colorful language will be greatly missed by those who loved and knew her.
