Dorothy Grubach Obituary
Dorothy (Rehak) Grubach, 89, of Slickville, died peacefully Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018. She was born Jan. 30, 1929, in Turtle Creek, a daughter of the late William and Mildred (Franklin) Rehak. Dorothy will be remembered as a kind, compassionate, caring and devoted wife, mother and friend, who believed that happiness is the whole world as friends, and that you always had room in your life for another friend. To her, life was gladness, loving, helping, sharing and, above all, forgiving, and to always live by your heart, and by your faith. Her kindness had no end and her beliefs were everlasting. After graduating from Saltsburg High School, Dorothy worked as an airline stewardess for United Airlines. She also attended Duff Business School, and did secretarial and accounting work for the University of Pittsburgh and Giant Eagle for many years before retirement. For 35 years, she was the organist for St. Sylvester Church and Slickville Presbyterian Church, and played for numerous churches and special occasions throughout the area. She was active in Girl Scouts and the Slickville Ambulance Service. As an avid quilter, she belonged to Loyalhanna Quilters Guild, and at one time flew 60 quilts to needy children in Nicaragua. She was a longtime member of St. Sylvester Roman Catholic Church, the Rosary Altar Society, and Westmoreland Choral Society, volunteered for the Red Cross and the American Heart Association, and was always available to help someone in need. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Bertha Cindric; brother, William Rehak; and granddaughter, Jessica Aaron. Dorothy will be sadly missed by her beloved family. She is survived by her loving husband of 69 years, Thomas E. Grubach Sr.; sons, Thomas M Grubach Jr., of Slickville, and Robert P. Grubach, of Thomasville, Ala.; daughters, Diana Reed (Jeff Piovesan) and Susan Aaron (John), both of Slickville; granddaughters, Amber Joyce, of Moore, Okla., Marjorie Aaron, of Slickville, Ariel Grubach, of Austin, Texas, Kaylee Grubach, of Nixon, Mo., Marissa Grubach, of Orlando, Fla., and Emily Grubach, of Spanish Fort, Ala.; great-granddaughters, Sadie and Ava; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Family and friends will be received from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday at BASH-NIED FUNERAL HOME, 152 Abbe Place, Delmont, 724-468-8381, where a blessing service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday. Interment services will follow at Twin Valley Memorial Park, Delmont.
