Patricia A. Szuba (Sweeney) of Leet Township. Loving wife of the late Thomas A. Szuba Sr., devoted mother of Thomas A. (Elizabeth) and Michael P. (Amy), and adoring Grandma Patty to Emma, Paul, Jack, Lizzie, Joe, and Tess.
Pat was the daughter of the late Paul and Emma Sweeney. She was preceded in death by siblings Warren Sweeney, Dorothy Sweeney and Joanne Lundell, and is survived by many nieces and nephews.
Born and raised in Glenfield, Pat graduated from Sewickley High School in 1960. Pat met Tom at a young adult event at St. James Church in Sewickley and after their courtship they enjoyed 43 years of marriage. Pat considered her devoted sons, Tom and Mike, to be two of her greatest accomplishments and cherished her grandchildren, who were the joys of her later years.
For more than 30 years, Pat served as the librarian of St. James School in Sewickley, a vocation perfectly suited to her as she was a devout Catholic, an avid reader and loved children. Pat lived her faith, treasured her family and enjoyed her friends especially Pat King who was her close friend through life’s ups and downs.
