Barbara Joan Tweedy, 74, of New Kensington, passed away Wednesday, July 14, 2021, at home surrounded by her three daughters and granddaughter. She is preceded in death by her high school sweetheart and husband, Justin Tweedy; her parents, Barbara M. Hornetter and Walter R. Hornetter. Barbara was a proud mother to Danielle C. Proch, Jennifer M. Philie, and Erin E. Dietrick (her husband, Ralph Dietrick.) She was a loving Gammie to her seven grandchildren, Jamie L. Lebak (Kenneth Lebak), Jonathan Proch, Zachary Proch, Jason Philie, Colin Dietrick, Brynlee Dietrick and Brooklyn Dietrick. Barbara was blessed with three great-grandchildren as well; Adia, Ella and Luke Lebak. She leaves behind many cherished cousins and countless dear friends. Barbara also leaves behind her fiercely loved dogs; you could always find them cuddled together at the end of the day. To say Barbara touched many lives would be a vast understatement. If she wasn't volunteering her time to a local church and food bank, you could find Barbara on the hunt for antiques and timeless artifacts to sell at a local antique store. She always had a way with words and would come up with colorful idioms because she treasured making people laugh. Most of all, she loved spending time and making memories with her family. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her. There will be no services. The family asks for your privacy and prayers during this time. ROSS G. WALKER FUNERAL HOME LTD., 217 Freeport Road, New Kensington, PA 15068, was entrusted with the arrangements. Leave an online condolence at www.rossgwalker.com
