Melanie A. (Baran) Hahn, 85, of Paramount Sr. Living in Bethel Park, former lifelong resident of Penn Hills, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017. Raised in Beaver Meadows, Pa., Melanie was a member of SS Peter and Paul Byzantine Catholic Church, and graduated from Hazleton High School. She completed her degree in home economics and specialized in early childhood development at The Pennsylvania State University, where her brother Carl introduced her to Joseph Hahn. They married in 1954, residing at Ft. Campbell, Ky., before moving to Penn Hills, where they were active supporters of Penn Hills School District and charter members of Highlands Aqua Club. For many years, Melanie devoted her musical talents as an organist to St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, the family's parish. A Penn State devotee, Mel sent all four children there and created many happy memories for them, hosting Saturday's tailgates at Happy Valley.
