Obituary of Loretta Fucich
Loretta Fucich, 85, of Pleasant Gap, peacefully passed away in her home early Monday morning, November 30, 2020.
Born December 15, 1934, in Pittsburgh, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Thelma Napolitano Wilson. On February 25, 1954, she married William "Bill" Fucich, who survives.
In addition to her husband, Loretta is survived by four children, William J. Fucich and his wife Mary Ann of Hatboro, PA; Lorraine N. Matisko and her husband John R. of Seven Springs, PA; Marilyn Snyder of Bellefonte, PA; and Jill Yonick and her husband Jim Zwilcher of Cheswick; PA; and one sister, Linda Palmieri and her husband John of Penn Hills, PA.
Loretta was raised and educated in the Pittsburgh area and graduated from St. John the Baptist High School in 1952.
As a dedicated homemaker, Loretta devoted her life as a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She most enjoyed surrounding herself with her four children, six grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. She was an accomplished cook and preparing meals was an expression of her love for family and friends.
Loretta was a devout Catholic and her faith was an integral part of her life. When her children were young, she tirelessly volunteered her time and talent to Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament School and Parish, Pittsburgh, PA. Later in her life, she was actively involved in many ministries at St. Bartholomew Parish, Penn Hills, PA, including The Ladies of Charity, RCIA, CCD, and as an Extraordinary Minister
