Pastva, Mildred Rita* - Formerly Of Norristown  
Mildred Rita Pastva, formerly of Norristown Mildred Rita “Midge” (Zahuranec) Pastva, 80, formerly of Norristown and Palm Springs, Calif., passed away Monday, Aug. 24, 2015, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Midge, as she was known by most, was born Aug. 29, 1934, in Montgomery County. She grew up in Norristown and graduated from St. Patrick’s High School in 1952. Midge married the love of her life, John G. Pastva, on Feb. 19, 1954, and together they celebrated 44 years of marriage before John’s passing in 1998. Midge was a customer service representative for 27 years with Verizon, formerly Bell of Pennsylvania. She lived in the Norristown area until 1991, when her husband convinced her that there was this “whole other side of the world” that was quite nice if you like “350 plus” days of sunshine instead of the “not-so-frequent 90-something” weather where they were living in Eagleville. So, John and Midge retired and moved to Palm Springs, where she enjoyed the warm desert life for 18 years. In California, Midge was a Eucharistic Minister and active member at St. Theresa Catholic Church and a member of the Sunrise Condo Association. She spent many days by the pool and loved to people watch on Palm Canyon Drive. After a brief stay with her daughter in Arizona, Midge relocated back to Pennsylvania for her final years. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and friend to all. Her special achievement in life was the love she had for her family. She enjoyed music, dancing, crocheting, baking and traveling. Music was one of the few things she was able to communicate with toward the end of her life. She will be remembered for touching the lives of many people with her frequent hugs and that trademark smile she had for everyone. In addition to her beloved husband, John, she was preceded in death by her sister, Dorothy Burke, and her half-brothers, Larry Marshall and Linwood Marshall. Midge is survived by her brother, Joseph Zahuranec, and his wife, Toni; six children: John Jr., Donna (Vincent) Cioffo, Marianne (Albert) Burton, Mark, Barbara (Richard) Weaver and Matthew (Sherry); four grandchildren: Dr. Joshua (Hunter) Norris, Bethany (Peter) Barone, Danielle Weaver and Kayla Cioffo; and one great-grandson, Logan Barone. The family wishes to thank Brightview Senior Living, East Norriton, for the care they provided to Midge and her family over the last several years and Crossroads Hospice for the comfort and support they gave to Midge and her family during her final days. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at St. Eleanor Church, 647 Locust St., Collegeville. Prior to the service, the family will receive family and friends from 9:15 until 10:15 a.m. at the church. Midge will be laid to rest privately at a later date next to her husband in Riverside National Cemetery, Riverside, Calif. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, Crossroads Hospice or to the charity of your choice. To share your fondest memory of Midge, please visit . Family Services entrusted to Boyd-Horrox-Givnish, 1-800-GIVNISH.
