In memory of
Regina Davanzo, 98, of Wyano, was taken by the angels to meet the Lord Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2018, at her home. She was born Jan. 11, 1919, in Yukon, daughter of the late Karol and Maria Krempasky. She was a member of the Seven Dolors Roman Catholic Church, Yukon, and also the Confraternity of Christian Mothers of the church. Her passion was sewing and crocheting and she was always a very strong-willed person even up until the time of her death. She guided with love and compassion that will always be a stronghold on her family. Her nephews always called her Saint Genny. In 1991, she retired from the Westmoreland Manor in Greensburg, where she worked in the sewing department for more than 20 years and then volunteered there for another 10 years. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Nebela, in 1978; a son, Kenneth Davanzo; two stepsons, Howard and Donald Davanzo; three brothers; and three sisters. Surviving are her daughters, Donna J. Sarosi Magga, of Wyano, and Joanne Heasley, of Search Light, Nev.; her three grandchildren, Joell Miller and husband, Dan, of North Huntingdon, Thomas Sarosi and his wife, Darcy (Ripley), of McElhattan, Pa., and Steven Sarosi and his fiance, Jamie Moxley, of Wyano; four great-grandchildren, Daniel Brotz and Abigale Brotz, of North Huntingdon, Mark Cooper Sarosi and Addison Sarosi, of Casa Grande, Ariz. Also surviving is a sister, Helen Porgorski, of Greensburg. She was also loved by her niece, Kathryn (Krempasky) Zukowski and her husband, James, of Bethel Park, and nephews, John Krempasky and his wife, Dolores, of Monongahela, and James Krempasky and his wife, Shirley, of Palm Bay, Fla. They never forgot about her, which made her smile. Friends will be received from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the BEATTY-RICH FUNERAL HOME INC., Route 136, Madison. The rosary will be recited at 3 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Monday in the Seven Dolors Roman Catholic Church, Yukon, with Monsignor James T. Gaston as celebrant. Interment will follow in the West Newton Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that the donations be made to the Amedisys Hospice, 109 Crossroads Road, Suite 400, Scottdale, PA 15683-2458.
