Theresa N. Kinzer (nee Clancy), 93 of McKees Rocks, passed away on September 26th. She was born on August 29, 1928 in Elliot, Pennsylvania, to John and Nora Clancy, the fourth of eight children. She married her one and only love, Kenneth F. Kinzer in 1949, spent 72 years together, and raised two sons (Raymond and Kenneth T.).
Theresa’s life focus was her family and Catholic faith. As an active member of St. Malachy Parish, she volunteered in numerous church activities and in the life of the school. She became an Associate of the Sisters of Divine Providence and volunteered her services, especially in their work to feed the homeless.
She was known by all as a kind, caring, compassionate woman. One of her hobbies was cookie making. Scarcely a family, friend or relative celebrated a birthday, wedding, baptism, or confirmation without a generous spread of Terry’s signature specialties.
Survivors include her husband, Ken; her two sons: Raymond (Tammy) of Concord, NC and Kenneth (Lori) of Colorado Springs, CO; four grandchildren - Eric Kinzer of NC; Nicole Bloeman (Patrick) of CO, Jenna Kinzer of AZ, and Mitchell Kinzer of CO; one great grandchild: Kinzlee Bloeman; her two sisters: Pat Montgomery and Barbara Coyle. Five siblings preceded her in death.
Visitation will be held on Saturday, October 2nd from 9 am – 10 am at McDermott Funeral Home, 334 Forest Grove Road (Kennedy Twp.) Coraopolis, PA. A burial mass will follow at 10 am across the street at St. Malachy Church.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Sisters of Divine Providence Associates, 9000 Babcock Blvd., Allison Park, PA, 15101 or cdpsisters.org/support-us/memorials-and-tributes
