Joyce C. (Bender) Sesti, 84, of Greensburg, died Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020, in St. Anne Home. She was born Sept. 10, 1936, in Graceton, Pa., a daughter of the late Joseph and Theresa Jean Votta Bender. Joyce taught kindergarten in the Homer City School District, and in her later years substitute taught at Aquinas Academy. Her love of singing led her to become the choral director of St. John de la Salle Church in Delmont before moving to the Greensburg area. She also sang with the Blessed Sacrament Cathedral Choir and, for 25 years, the Westmoreland County Choral Society. She and her husband had been longtime members of the Greensburg Country Club, where they made many lifelong friends. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Peter L. Sesti, Nov. 29, 2019. She is survived by her three children, Joseph Sesti, of Harrison City, April DeGregory (Dr. Thomas) and Tony Sesti, all of Greensburg; five grandchildren, Natalie Sesti, Dominic DeGregory, Nichole Sesti, Vincent and Alaina DeGregory; sister, Maxine Reames (John), of Phoenix Ariz.; two sisters-in-law, Eveleen Huczko, of New Florence, and Dora Reese, of Ruffsdale; and several nieces and nephews.
