Froehlich, Father Canice 94

  • Born: 1920-08-19
  • Died: 2015-07-29
  • Funeral Home: Dalessandro, Lawrenceville | Get Directions
  • Father Canice Froehlich, OFC Cap., 94, quietly passed away Wednesday, July 29, 2015, at Via Christi Village, in Hays, just three weeks short of his 95th birthday. He was the senior friar of the Capuchin Franciscan Province of South Conrad. Born Aug. 19, 1920, in Pittsburgh, in Pittsburgh, Father was a son of George I. and Matilda (Bottner) Froehlich and the younger of two children. After graduating from St. Fidelis College and Seminary in Herman in 1940, he entered the Capuchin novitiate at Cumberland, Md., and made first profession of vows the next year, following two years of philosophy studies in Victoria, Kan., and four years of theology in Washington, D.C., he was ordained to the priesthood Feb. 11, 1947, by Bishop John McNamara, auxiliary bishop of Baltimore-Washington. Playfully nicknamed "Roughhouose" by his seminary classmates, Father Canice was anything but that. Throughout his 74 years as a Capuchin and 68 years as a priest, he was widely known as a humble, gentle, compassionate and quiet priest, whose first interest was the spiritual life. After ordination, Father earned a Master of Library Science at Catholic University of America and spent 19 years as a librarian and faculty member at St. Joseph's Military Academy, Hays, Kan. When the school merged with St. Francis Seminary of Victoria in 1970 and became Thomas Moore Prep, Canice started and, for two years, directed the Priesthood-Brotherhood program to nurture young vocations. During most of his years as a priest, he served as a gifted confessor and excellent spiritual director. Along with Father Simon Conrad, who died at the age of 92 in 2013, he spent 34 years as a downtown confessor in St. Louis; 17 years at the Alverne Hotel and Public Chapel and 17 at St. John the Apostle and Evangelist Church. After his assignment to St. Joseph's Friary in Hays in 2008, Father began a special evangelization project involving an extensive greetings card apostolate. Scores of people received person messages from him on special days in their lives. Besides his Capuchin brothers, Father is survived by seven nephews and nieces: Capuchin Father Jim Froehlich, of Washington, D.C., Mary Ann Moore, Jeanne Graff, Lawrence Froelich, Clare Froehlich-Walk and Carole Succop, all of Pittsburgh; and George Froehlich, of Beverly Hills, Fla. A wake is scheduled 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 2, 2015, in St. Fidelis Basilica, Victoria, where the funeral Mass will be at 10 a.m. Monday, led by Bishop Edward Weisenburger, of Salina, Kan. Visitation will be 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015, at St. Augustine Friary, 36th St., Lawrenceville. Interment is to follow at St. Augustine Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the St. Augustine Province. Professional services are trusted to D'ALESSANDRO FUNERAL HOME and CREMATORY LTD., Lawrenceville. www.dalessandroltd.com.

Chernan, Emery L. 73

  • Arnold
  • Born: 1942-01-23
  • Died: 2015-07-31
  • Funeral Home: Rusiewicz, Arnold | Get Directions
  • Emery Louis "Chris" Chernan, 73, of Arnold, passed away peacefully Friday, July 31, 2015, in Aspinwall Veterans Hospice, after a courageous and valiant battle with cancer. Sadly, cancer won despite the fact that he never gave up. He had been ill for 18 months. Born Jan. 23, 1942, in New Kensington, he was the eldest son of the late Louis C. and Helen Galecki Chernan. Emery was a 1960 graduate of New Kensington High School and was a lifelong learner. Blessed with a fertile and curious mind, he pursued various intellectual interests including astronomy, archeology, Egyptology, history and the natural sciences. Known to his fellow coal miners as "Cookie" he was a crew supervisor and worked at the Newfield Mine in Plum for almost 14 years. A serious mining accident ended that career. His last professional endeavor was at PA Career Link in New Kensington where he was a well-liked employment counselor. Never one to be idle, he built his own website and started his own online business, Health Time Products, of which he was very proud and which fulfilled a lifelong dream. While his family called him Emery, his friends, co-workers and others knew him as Chris, a name he selected for himself some 36 years ago. A man of many talents, he possessed skills in plumbing and electricity and could fix just about anything. Remarkably, he also could build things without any blueprints or plans, "visualizing" the project in his head. A real nature lover, Chris greatly enjoyed flower and vegetable gardening and picking wild mushrooms. His other interests included fishing, playing the guitar and shooting pool. During his lifetime, he was "Dad" to his much-loved cats, Toby, Kahuna and Chloe. Emery was a member of St. Mary of Czestochowa Catholic Church, the PLMS and American Legion, all in New Kensington, AARP, the United Mine Workers of America and the VFW. At one time, he was an active volunteer and officer for the Animal Protectors of New Kensington. He also was a certified American Red Cross volunteer and was a financial supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project. An Army veteran himself, Emery served in Germany during peacetime and was an officer's driver. He will be eternally missed, loved and remembered by his loving siblings, Racheal (Tom) Lewellen, Ronald (Linda) Chernan and their families, and Helene Chernan, all of California; his beloved aunt, Sister Archangela (Harriet Galecki), of Coraopolis, whom he greatly admired; his loving companion and best friend, his life-partner of almost 24 years, Donna J. Domin, of Arnold, with whom he made his home; other aunts; nieces and nephews; cousins; and his friend, Daniel J. Domin, of Arnold. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Philip Chernan; and his sister, Barbara Downing. Emery/Chris was a quiet, kind and generous person who loved God, his family and his fellow man. Donna J. Domin and his family would like to express their sincere thanks and gratitude to the staff at the Oakland and Aspinwall veterans facilities for their excellent care and compassion. Friends will be received from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, Aug. 3, 2015, at RUSIEWICZ OF ARNOLD FUNERAL HOME, 1400 Fifth Ave., Arnold, where a blessing service will be held at 9 a.m. Tuesday, followed by Christian Funeral Mass at 9:30 a.m. in St. Mary Roman Catholic Church, New Kensington.

Woodall, Elmer L. Jr. 94

  • Fallowfield Township
  • Born: 1920-08-11
  • Died: 2015-08-01
  • Funeral Home: Schrock-Hogan Funeral Home, Charleroi | Get Directions
  • Elmer L. Woodall Jr., 94, of Fallowfield Township (and more recently a resident of Pittsburgh), died Saturday, Aug. 1, 2015. Elmer was 10 days short of turning 95, having been born Aug. 11, 1920, in Baltimore, Md., to the late Elmer L. Woodall Sr. and Rose (nee Harle) Woodall. Having learned the sheet metal and tinsmithing trade from his father, Elmer began working for L. R. Mack in Charleroi in 1938. Although offered a deferral from military service during World War II (given the defense work in which L.R. Mack was involved), Elmer elected to enlist and served from 1942 to 1946. He served in the 69th air service squadron in the Southwest Pacific, obtaining the rank of sergeant. Following the war, Elmer became employed with the Corning Glass Works in Charleroi, where he headed the sheet metal shop and where he remained employed until his retirement in 1982. Elmer enjoyed an active life, both mentally and physically. He loved the outdoors - hiking, hunting, fishing, camping, riding motorcycles, and touring historical sites. He continued doing the yard work on his two-plus acres in Fallowfield Township well into his 80s. He exercised his mind by reading broadly, especially history, and by working in his home shop as a “Mister Fix-It” for family and friends. Paget’s disease of the bone brought on frailty necessitating a move to Pittsburgh to be near his daughter in 2011; nevertheless, he retained an active mind, dry wit, and good humor until recent months when radiation treatment for skin cancer precipitated his decline. Elmer’s wife, Irene (nee Black) Woodall, preceded him in death Aug. 7, 1992; five months short of their 50th wedding anniversary. Elmer was also preceded in death by his brothers, Earl Woodall, Roland (Orma) Woodall; and sister, Norma (Robert) Winwood. Elmer is survived by his daughter, Karen L. (Neal Binstock) Woodall of Pittsburgh; and a number of nieces and nephews. Friends and family will gather at the SCHROCK-HOGAN FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATION SERVICES INC., 226 Fallowfield Ave., Charleroi, for visitation from 9 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015. Immediately following, there will be a brief service at the Monongahela Cemetery prior to interment. Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.schrock-hogan.com. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Family Hospice and Palliative Care, 50 Moffett St., Pittsburgh, PA 15243.
