Barbara K. Evans, age 68 of North Huntingdon and formerly of Elizabeth Twp., passed away at home surrounded by her family on Friday, November 15, 2019. Born March 3, 1951 in McKeesport, she was a daughter of the late Andrew John and Helen (Reed) Kish. A graduate of Elizabeth Forward HS and Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Barbara worked as a teacher for the McKeesport School District and was a parishioner of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in North Huntingdon. In her spare time, she loved to cross-stitch and crochet, garden, dance, and was an active participant with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
