Fleckenstein, Joan 83

  • Scott Township
  • Died: 2014-10-30
  • Funeral Home: Slater, Pittsburgh | Get Directions
  • Joan (McLaughlin) Fleckenstein, 83, passed away Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014, in the loving arms of her children. Joan was a force of nature. Distinctly irreverent, Joan loved nothing more than a quick mind and a great story. She met her match, to her delight, in her adoring husband, Robert J Fleckenstein. They enjoyed 46 happy years of marriage, the hallmarks of which are three children and dearly loyal friends, at home in Pittsburgh and in the mountains that they loved. Joan was the daughter of Aloysius T. McLaughlin and Mary Ellen Flaherty McLaughlin. They adored her and instilled the fierce family and Christian values that reign supreme in each generation. Joan leaves behind Stacey Vernallis (Rick Hughes) and their children Mark Laughlin Vernallis, Patrick Vernallis and Jamison Vernallis, all of Pittsburgh, and Kiran and Ravi Hughes, of Nairobi, Kenya; Leslie Ellen McKee (Logan "Sandy" McKee) and their children, Caylin Anne and Logan Alexander McKee IV, both of Burlington, Vt.; and her "Sun" for whom the sun rose and set, Robert J. Fleckenstein II (Lesley Viviano Fleckenstein) and their darlings, Robert J. Fleckenstein III and Laughlin Fay Fleckenstein. Joan just adored her sisters and brother, and their remarkable spouses, Aloysius T. McLaughlin, deceased, (Mary Lou who paved the highway to heaven), Carol Provan (Brian) and Judy McGinnis (Richard). Aunt Joan's nieces and nephews brought joy and pride, Marcia White, Joseph Fleckenstein, Mary Beth Leech (Christopher), Aloysius T. McLaughlin III (Nora), J. Brendan McLaughlin (Susie), Pamela Provan Barrogate (Bryan), Daniel Laughlin Provan (Amy), Connor Laughlin McGinnis, Macauley McGinnis and scores of gorgeous and talented grand-nieces and nephews, whose antics she followed on Facebook. Joan was devoted to - and we cherish - our Aunt Lois Maloy, together friends since 1948, making life a grand adventure and finding the funny side of anything. Their annual trips to Florida were legendary. Joan's kids especially want to acknowledge our Aunt Lois' role in moving mom from grief to joy when her beloved Fleck passed. Honey, as Joan was known, pioneered a path of fun wherever she went and never met a stranger. Born in Braddock and raised in Swissvale, she graduated from Swissvale High and completed a secretarial degree at Robert Morris College and worked at the District Attorney's office for such rising stars as the honorable Pete Flaherty and Silvestri Silvestri. Her true calling was motherhood. She was master of the Loaves and the Fishes and created a magical mountain experience with their friends Phil and Laura Reese and their children, Laura Jean, Meg, Cathy and Michelle in their home dubbed "Honey's Christmas House." She loved the Mountain Club and its many members. She enjoyed skiing at Seven Springs, a drink at Helen's, sitting on the deck watching her humming birds and sitting with Lois watching the ships pass by at their Florida winter getaway. Joan loved her Steelers and her politics. Friends welcome from 2 to 7 p.m. Sunday in THE WILLIAM SLATER II FUNERAL SERVICE (412-563-2800), 1650 Greentree Road, Scott Township. Mass of Christian Burial will be at 11 a.m. Monday at S.S. Simon and Jude Church. Interment will be private by family only. In lieu of flowers, donations suggested to American Heart Association, 777 Penn Center Blvd. Pittsburgh, PA 15235 or the Huntington Disease Society of America (HDSA.org), 505 Eighth Ave., Suite 902, New York, NY 10018. http://www.slaterfuneral.com.

  • Greensburg
  • Born: 1945-01-25
  • Died: 2014-10-30
  • Funeral Home: Barnhart, Greensburg | Get Directions
  • Lyn L. Strobel, of Greensburg, died Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014. She was born Jan. 25, 1945, in Clearfield County, and later moved to Butler with her parents, James and Katherine Liddle, and brother, Jim Liddle. She attended Wooster College in Ohio and played on the college basketball team. After graduating from Wooster College as a mathematics major she joined the Marines as a second lieutenant. She specialized in communications and top secret cryptography. She had a major responsibility in a communication operation in Okinawa during the Vietnam War period. The picture goes back to that time since she thought herself immensely privileged to be among the few women line officers in the late 1960s. She also met her future husband, Charles Strobel, at her first duty station in Norfolk, Va. Four years later on Feb 21, 1970, she married that Navy officer she met at her first duty station. The two moved from Philadelphia, to Chicago to Indianapolis with business opportunities and finally settled in Greensburg in the fall of 1973 to start their own business. Lyn was the corporate secretary and treasurer for the new endeavor with no employees, no assets and a young baby. That business was sold in 2004 with many hundreds of employees in three different states. Lyn's accounting skills and attention to details were a major part of that success. Lyn was a Girl Scout leader at the local and council levels for many years. She was a school classroom assistant and parent teacher organization (PTO) president. She was assistant treasurer with her husband at the Charter Oak Pool Club. She was president, secretary or treasurer of several social groups that she greatly enjoyed, such as the New Neighbors (not really new, not neighbors, but 120 strong), the Red Hats and Chat and Sew at Good Shepherd Church which often made blankets for the needy and for our solders overseas. Lyn attended international trade association meetings and functions with her husband (an officer) and provided a fantastic sounding board for endeavors being debated. She enjoyed mixing it up at socials with the board of directors from so many different parts of the world. After selling the corporation, she was busy proofreading and helping publish a book her husband wrote. Not having enough to do, she became a partner in two new Limited Liability Corporations (LLC) they started, that include several office building rental properties. Lyn is the mother of five natural children and one adopted neighbor daughter. As the family was growing up she also provided a home for seven different foreign exchange students from Costa Rica, Finland, Spain, France, Japan, China and Chile. She is survived by her brother Jim, a minister in Wisconsin; and her loving family, including husband, Charles, and children, Erik Strobel, Jennifer LeVan, Jenny Lynn Boring, Marjorie McIntyre, Kevin Strobel and Kimberly Strobel. There are nine grandchildren, including Aislinn, Hannah, Seth, Rowan, Sarah, Eli, Logan, Noah and Abigail. Family and friends will be received from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday at the BARNHART FUNERAL HOME, 505 E. Pittsburgh St., Greensburg. For online condolences, visit BarnhartFuneralHome.com.
