Lucille S. Visnesky
FUNERAL HOME
Kennedy & Blodgett Funeral Home Inc
253 N Grant Ave
Kittanning, PA

Lucille S. Visnesky (Neal), 82, was called home to Jesus on Wednesday, October 13th, 2021.

Born to Chester and Genevieve (McMillen) Neal on June 11th, 1939 in Worthington, PA, she was beloved by everyone who knew her.

She married the love of her life, John M. Visnesky, on August 23rd, 1957 and together they shared a beautiful life in their 58 years of marriage. Lucille had a green thumb, and loved spending her summer days in the sunshine tending to her garden that she and John grew together year after year. She was affectionately known as "Lucy" to those who loved her. A longtime member of St. Mary, Our Lady of Guadalupe Roman Catholic Church, she enjoyed singing her worship, and was also known to sing around the house. Her family describes her as a songbird. She was a loyal caretaker to her cherished dog and companion, Ebony. No one ever went hungry at Lucille's house, as she always made enough food for an army, and cooked everything with heaping amounts of love. She was a dedicated worker at Fairwinds Nursing Home for eight years, and Armstrong County Memorial Hospital for twenty years.

Lucille is survived by her devoted children, John Visnesky (Holly), of Mt. Lebanon, Christina Wilson (Scott), of Cuyahoga Falls, OH, Timothy Visnesky (Carrie) of Kittanning, Kenneth Visnesky (Cheryl), of Rural Valley, Jeffrey Visnesky, of Marietta, and adopted son John Fitzgerald, of Harrisburg; loving grandchildren Jeremy, Jessica, Ashley, Shaun, Michael, Morgan, Christopher, Nichole, Natalie, Benjamin, Park, and Michelle; three step-grandchildren, Joel, Chuckie, and Brandon; twelve great-grandchildren; and brothers Joseph (Diane) Neal and Thomas (Jan) Neal.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her dear husband, John, and brother Chester S. Neal Jr. ("Sonny").

Lucille was a faithful believer, treasured and adored mother and grandmother, and wonderful woman. Anyone who knew her was blessed, and she will forever be remembered and characterized by her love.

My deepest sympathy to Lucille's family. I am the daughter of Robert Milligan, Sr, who was a relative of Lucille's Mom, Genevieve. We kept in touch for many years, but my parents are gone now and I no longer live in Kittanning.( I was one of Jeff's first grade teachers at West Hills however!) I'm sorry I didn't know Lucille had passed until now. She was a sweet, loving person and I always enjoyed knowing her. God bless you all.

I've known your mom for 40 years. We met at Fairwinds, stayed in contacted for many years. Due to me moving an hour away, plus hardships in my family it got tougher to visit. Due God led me to Jordan's ice cream stand for a motorcycle ride with our friends, and low and behold, your mom was there with another lady. What a great surprise. I got to visit with her at her house a couple weeks later, reminisce and have lunch. She was like a mom to me. She was at my wedding, saw my son the week he was born, sang at my brothers wedding and was a fantastic person to work with. I knew her health wasn't good, but she looked fantastic when I saw her last summer. My heart breaks on her passing, but I know she is with John and our Lord. She is a blessing I will always cherish.
