PESCHOCK, Mary Louise, 89, Vinco,Passed away on April 13, 2021 at Vista Springs Greenbriar, Parma, Ohio. Born January 19, 1932 in Johnstown, Daughter of the late Louis A. and Clara (Lukasiewicz) Salem. Preceded in death by her wonderful loving husband, Bob "Lefty" Peschock and sister, Shirley "Babe" Strippy. Survived by daughter, Bobbi (Art Lawson)
Parma, Ohio. Also survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was a graduate of East Conemaugh High School, Class of 1950. Where her Dad, who was a member of the school board, presented his daughter with her diploma. A special moment for both of them.
Mom was secretary for East Conemaugh Boro after graduation. She then worked at the Cambria County Court House, in the Probation Bureau, for 15 years. Mom also worked for Bethlehem Steel in the Rod and Wire Mill for 10 years before retiring.
She was a parishioner of the Church of the Transfiguration in Conemaugh,
a life- long Democrat and past President of the Traffic Club.
Mom tried to golf, but it just wasn't her thing. She bowled on a Ladies League and was pretty good, but what she really excelled at was shopping
on QVC. If they handed out trophies, mom would have a whole shelf full.
She loved her Steelers. Her pride and joy was her Terrible Towel.
My Mom & Daddy had a great group of longtime friends. They enjoyed going
to the Pitt Panther games and yearly trips to Myrtle Beach. Their group
vacations included Hawaii, Europe and a few cruises. Oh, the stories they
would tell. Mom and Daddy visited 40 of our states and traveled to Canada, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and the Panama Canal, too.
If you knew my mom, you know she could be quite a handful and didn't
hesitate to share her opinion, whether you wanted it or not, ha ha !
She was one of a kind and to know her was to love her.
Mama, we've been together almost every day since Daddy passed away.
I'm going to miss you so much, but knowing you're in heaven with Baba,
Papa, Aunt Babe, and Daddy, fills my heart with comfort and joy,
not sadness. When you get there, give them a big, big hug for me. Friends received Tuesday 4-7PM at Henderson-Makuchan Funeral Home, 434 First St., Conemaugh, where vigil for the deceased will be held. Funeral mass will be held at 10:30AM Wednesday at Church of the Transfiguration with Father Robert Hall as celebrant. Masks and social distancing are required by those attending.
