Obituary

John E. Timo Sr., 101, of Bentleyville, passed away Monday, June 19, 2017, as a result of natural causes. He was a resident of Mt. Macrina Manor in Uniontown since December 2015.
He was born February 10, 1916, in Donora, a son of the late Michael and Mary Zukovich Timo.
Mr. Timo attended Donora schools and was a proud 1939 graduate of Duquesne University School of Pharmacy. As a drum major for the university band, he was given a partial scholarship, which enabled him to complete his studies. By then, his father was deceased and his mother, who came to the United States from what is today Eastern Slovakia, was of limited means.
In 1945, he opened a drug store in Bentleyville, which operated for about 25 years. He eventually started working for the Pennsylvania Department of Health as a drug investigator, a job he enjoyed very much.
His wife, Helen Warholic Timo, died in 2010, after 68 years of marriage.
Mr. Timo was a lifelong member of and loved St. Michael Byzantine Catholic Church in Donora, proud of his Carpatho-Rusyn heritage and membership in the Greek Catholic Union. He contributed to those organizations, along with a scholarship fund for Duquesne University students, and established the John and Helen Timo Foundation to support causes related to his heritage and faith.
The staff at Mt. Macrina Manor provided excellent care to Mr. Timo while he was a resident.
Surviving are three children, John Timo Jr. (Carmen) and son Phillip of Daisytown, Cathy Silvestri and daughter Maria of Pittsburgh and Peggy (Ross) Bell of Meadville.
Deceased, in addition to his parents and wife, are two daughters, Barbara and Susan Timo.
Friends will be received, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Monday in Greenlee Funeral Home, 619 Main Street, Bentleyville. A funeral liturgy will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 27, in St. Michael Byzantine Catholic Church, Donora. Interment will follow in St. Michael Cemetery, Donora. A Parastas service will be held at 3:30 p.m. Monday in the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made to St. Michael Byzantine Catholic Church, Donora, PA 15033; Sisters of St. Basil at Mt. St. Macrina in Uniontown; or Duquesne University. May Mr. Timo's memory be eternal.
