Olga Minton Obituary
Olga (Stefanchik) Minton, of Monroeville, passed away Thursday, May 31, 2018. Born April 24, 1925, to Elizabeth (Sabo) Stefanchik and Michael Stefanchik, and raised in Carnegie, Olga was a creative individual, who loved music, sewing, snow skiing, swimming, reading, opera and art. She grew up during the Depression era, a daughter of a Slovak steel worker and first-generation immigrants from Czechoslovakia. She worked after high school as an accounting clerk and met her husband of 45 years, George Harold Minton Jr., at ballroom dance classes. George was a scientist, a Ph.D. nuclear physicist (Carnegie Mellon), and although he was a naturally reserved individual, he quickly purchased season symphony tickets to lure Olga to marriage. She could not resist. Olga raised two children, Michael David Minton, MD (Nancy), and Cynthia Minton (Steve Piatt), a social worker. She volunteered weekly for many years at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh, where she enjoyed comforting newborn infants in the nursery. Olga was predeceased by her husband, George; sister, Aleska Stefanchik; her daughter-in-law, Nancy (Greza) Minton; and her sister-in-law, Kathleen Stefanchik. She is survived by her brother, Michael Stefanchik; her brother in-law, James Minton; numerous nieces and nephews; her son, Mike, daughter Cindy; son in-law Steve; stepsons, Joe (Ashley) and Justin Piatt; grandchildren, Lauren (Shane) Tierney; and two great-grandchildren, Aubrey and Tristan Tierney. She supported such charities as Doctors without Borders, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, and the Jimmy Carter Foundation. She lived independently in her own home until her death.
There will be no visitation. Arrangements entrusted to the GENE H. CORL INC. FUNERAL CHAPEL AND CREMATION SERVICES OF MONROEVILLE.
