Hatch, Rachel A. 83

  • Born: 1931-04-14
  • Died: 2014-09-13
  • Funeral Home: Kepple-Graft, Greensburg | Get Directions
  • Rachel A. (Aldrich) Hatch, 83, of Greensburg, went home to be with her Lord in His Eternal Kingdom on Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014, and is reunited with her loving husband, Gordon, of 53 years. She passed away peacefully at Redstone Highlands with her family by her side. She was born April 14, 1931, in Sheridan, N.Y., daughter of Sydney E. Aldrich and Freda R. (Voit) Aldrich. Rachel graduated from Silver Creek High School in 1949 and Jamestown (N.Y.) Business College in 1951. Before she began her life as a devoted wife and beloved mother, she worked as a medical secretary in a doctor's office in Dunkirk, N.Y., and in medical records at City Hospital in Meadville. Rachel was a member of the Greensburg Alliance Church for 57 years, where she attended faithfully and dearly loved her Lord. She was fashioned by God's own hand and was a genuine reflection of Christ's love. She had such a sweet spirit, always praying fervently for others. Anyone who knew Rachel would agree that their lives have been changed as a result of knowing her and that she resembled an Angel. She was an inspiration to every life that she touched. Rachel loved so unconditionally and will always be known as the best encourager ever. She had an indescribable gentle, kind, caring, selfless nature and ALWAYS put others first. From her life, she taught us to enjoy every moment and be thankful for what we have. She found joy in the simplest of things, from watching a flower bloom to beauty of the bright blue sky. Rachel's life was devoted to being a wonderful wife and mother and taking care of her family. She filled our home with more tender love and kindness than it could hold. No mother could be loved more by her children -- we were so blessed to have her in our lives. Although our future will be very different without our beloved mother, we find comfort in the assurance of knowing that the grave is not the end and it was time for you to go home and be with Dad. Although everything within us wants to hold onto you here on this earth, we know that we will see you again in a little while, where real life begins in God's Eternal Kingdom. Rachel was preceded in death by her husband, Gordon P. Hatch, on Nov. 28, 2009; two sisters, Elizabeth J. Ortman, of Meadville, and Martha L. Aldrich, of Westfield, N.Y. She is survived by two children, Paul Gordon Hatch, of Youngwood, and Rebecca Lynn Davidson and her husband, Glenn, of Greensburg; and a number of nieces, nephews and cousins. She also leaves behind her grand dog, Harley, whom she dearly loved and truly enjoyed spending each and every day of her last eight years with him right beside her chair. The family would like to recognize and express our sincere appreciation to all of the caregivers and employees of Redstone Highlands Skilled Nursing Facility for the excellent and compassionate care of both Gordon and Rachel -- Rachel during her last few days of life and Gordon as a resident for nearly four years. Contributions in Rachel's memory may be made to the Greensburg Alliance Church, 4428 Route 136, Greensburg, PA 15601. Family and friends will be received from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at KEPPLE-GRAFT FUNERAL HOME, 524 N. Main St., Greensburg.

Medich, Nicholas E. 90

  • Murrysville , Formerly of Forest Hills
  • Born: 1923-12-18
  • Died: 2014-09-08
  • Funeral Home: Hart, Murrysville | Get Directions
  • Nicholas E. Medich, 90, of Murrysville, formerly of Forest Hills, died Monday, Sept. 8, 2014. Born Dec. 18, 1923, in Rankin, he was the son of the late Simo and Kata Blazevich Medich. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a daughter, Mary; and a sister, Mildred Karas. He is survived by his wife, Lucille Beninati Medich; five daughters, Kathleen (Jeff Laird) Gemberling, of Swarthmore, Dr. Cynthia (Joseph Doktor) Medich, of Boston, Mass., Patricia (James) Stuart, of Murrysville, Lynda (John) Andreas, of Camp Hill, and Kristen (Jeff) Jeznach, of Boston, Mass.; 11 grandchildren, Allyson (Arlen), Lindsay (Jeremy), Brad (Susannah), Maggie, Caroline, Jonathan (Janelle), Nicholas, Amanda, Blake, Cole and Lauren; one great-granddaughter, Clara; and many nieces and nephews and family pets. Raised by Croatian/Serbian parents who emigrated from Yugoslavia, Nick never spoke a word of English until the age of 6. Yet he learned to thrive in the American culture and educational system by trial and error and through the "simple" love of his parents. He graduated with honors from Rankin High School in 1941, where he played varsity basketball, participated in school theatricals, served as senior class president and was homecoming king 1941. He remained very active in planning and executing class reunions through the years. Nick attended undergraduate and graduate school at the University of Pittsburgh and was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. He served the Pittsburgh Public Schools as a special education teacher from 1950 to 1957 and in the Mt. Lebanon Public Schools beginning in 1958. He led his practice as a school psychologist in the Duquesne Public Schools from 1962 to 1966 and in the Pittsburgh Public School System from 1966 to 1981. Nick loved his work and cared deeply for the students he evaluated and worked with, as evidenced by his comprehensive reports regarding accurate diagnosis and comprehensive treatment planning. He cared about all people and lived his life with integrity. Nick married the love of his life, the girl next door, and was a devoted husband to Lucille for 63 years. He respected and cherished Lucille all the days of his life and taught his children through his example the strength behind commitment in marriage. Nick was a kind, compassionate, gentle and interesting man, liked by everyone whose life he touched. He loved humor, telling jokes to the very end. Athletics were very important to Nick, first as a basketball player at Rankin High School and Pitt and then as a tennis enthusiast into his '80s. He taught his children and grandchildren the art and skill of the game. He was an avid fan too, closely following the athletic careers of his grandsons through basketball championships, as well as college and professional baseball. Likewise, his granddaughters received the same lavish attention for their athletics, performances and milestone events. To all of them, he was an honorable man and doting grandfather. Nick was also an amazing father to his five daughters. He embraced his role as patriarch of his dancing, twirling, theatrical daughters, attending all their events and encouraging each of them through life's many turns with true dedication and devotion. Nick was viewed as a thinker/intellect, wonderful listener and storyteller. Nick loved politics and often engaged in debates and dialectical conversations, both formal and informally. He knew the art of getting along with all political parties to the degree that he was encouraged to run for the House of Representatives in Pennsylvania. He never pursued a formal political career however, due to his commitment to education and his family. Nick did serve as the president of the Italian Sons and Daughters Association, Capri Lodge and served in many leadership positions that involved political venues and sensitivities. Nick was a patriot to the end. He served as a Naval Air Technician in the Navy in World War II from 1943-1946, witnessed the deaths of his service friends and peers, and continued to honor the lives of servicemen and women who devoted their lives to keep American safe. A United States flag, honoring his service, flew over the United States Capitol on Sept. 11, 2012. Nick lived a "good" life and always felt blessed to have his family, friends and colleagues as well as the life experiences presented to him over the 90 years of his life. Many will miss him dearly. His presence and influence will remain. He made the lives of others better. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014, at the Mother of Sorrows Church, Murrysville. The family asked that we all gather at 9:30 a.m. The family asks that donations be made to the Great Friends Charities, 9416 Copper Rock Court, Naples, FL 34120. Great Friends is an organization that was brought together through friendship working in concert for the betterment of mankind. http://www.hartfuneralhomeinc.com.
