Eleanor J. Katic, age 92, wife of the late beloved William E. Katic of Jefferson Hills, died April 2, 2020. She was born in Duquesne on January 24, 1928 and is the daughter of the late George and Anna Skurla Dudinak.

She is survived by her loving children; Kevin (Bibiane) Katic of Perryopolis, Kimberlee (Late Dr. Domingo) Ottonello of Jefferson Hills, and Rochelle (Daniel) Parenti of Deland Fl., and 5 grandchildren, Alexis Ottonello, Dominique Ottonello, Christian Katic, Dante Parenti, and Vanessa Parenti.

Eleanor was blessed to stay at home and raise her children and grandchildren whom she cherised. She had a generative way of coaxing growth out of people and plants.  She loved Christmas and always recognized everyone’s birthdays as if they were each a holiday.  She was elegant and humble and took care of her family before herself.  She valued nature and all God’s creatures.  Everyone who met her felt the warmth of her sunshine.

The family will gather for services on Sunday, April 5, 2020 at Strifflers of White Oak Cremation & Mortuary Services, 1100 Lincoln Way, White Oak, 15131 (Sue Striffler Galaski, supervisor, 412-678-6177). Burial will follow.
