Laura J. Barna Obituary
Laura Janet (Ank) Barna, of Columbia, Md., a longtime former resident of North Huntingdon, 92, passed away Friday, May 4, 2018, in Columbia. She was born Nov. 5, 1925 in Delmont, daughter of the late Wayne and Elizabeth Ank. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Joseph R. Barna; a daughter, Joan Barna; son, John Barna; and sister, Margaret Malkoch. Janet is survived by daughter, Susan Barna, of Elkridge, Md.; grandchildren, John and Jeremy Leierzapf, and sister-in-law, Mildred Barna. Janet graduated from Greensburg High School and went on to work at Bell Telephone, where she organized big band dances, and assisted in the conversion from switchboards in parts of Westmoreland County. The Barnas moved to North Huntingdon to be halfway between her family in Greensburg and his in McKeesport. Janet always welcomed a lot of kids into the house and was the only mother around who rode roller coasters, swam and skated. In later years, she enjoyed travel and volunteering with Meals on Wheels and at Kane Hospital.
By the family's request, there will be no visitation and interment will be held privately for the family. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to BASH-NIED FUNERAL HOME, Delmont, 724-468-8381.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be directed to North Versailles Fire Department, 1021 Broad St., N. Versailles, PA 15137. For online expressions of sympathy, please refer to the funeral home website, www.bash-niedfuneralhome.com.
