Kathleen Dillon Rendulic

By Strifflers Family Funeral Homes | Posted in: Strifflers Family Funeral Homes

Kathleen Dillon Rendulic, 79, of Hempfield Township, formerly of McKeesport, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, October 19, 2021 surrounded by the love of her family after a long and difficult illness. Born November 24, 1941 in McKeesport, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Mary Mildred Cochenour Dillon. She graduated at the top of her class from McKeesport Hospital School of Nursing where she became a registered nurse. She was so proud to have been a nurse and spent a lifetime caring for others. As dementia slowly took her from us, we could always count on talking to her about having been a nurse to bring back the sparkle in her eye as we recalled the many stories. Other than her family, there is nothing of which she was prouder. She went on to teach nurses and EMTs at Community College of Allegheny County and worked at Highmark from which she retired as a Claims Reviewer. In 2013, she was honored as a member of the Retired Nurses Working in Neighborhoods team and received the Jefferson Award for Public Service. She loved to sing and was a member of the Sacred Heart choir in McKeesport where together with her husband, they recorded a Christmas album with the choir of which they were so proud.
