Barbara H. “Gramma”

Barbara H. (Zalec) Wagner, age 96, of Town of McCandless, PA, was reunited in Heaven with her husband of 67 years, Richard F. Wagner, Sr., on April 17, 2024.
Barbara was a loving mother of Richard F. Wagner (Jean), Barbara A. Sinkhorn (David), Ronald R. Wagner (Susan), and Robert J. Wagner (Kimberly). She was also the proud and dedicated Grandmother of twelve grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren. Barbara was one of six siblings.
Barbara and Richard were members of St. Alexis Church and long-time members of the Horseless Carriage Club of America; they traveled many miles together in their antique cars. Barb was a telephone operator for Bell Telephone and a cafeteria worker at the local high school where she loved cooking and being around kids. Barbara was also an avid gardener, as she enjoyed spending time outside in her yard. Tomatoes, cucumbers and pears were free for your taking on the tables on their enclosed porch. The porch was also a play area for the grandchildren to play and ride their tricycles for hours on end.
Although she will be greatly missed by all, the family will forever remember and cherish many fond memories, including lots of smiles and hugs, and a kitchen well-stocked with home baked cookies, Jello, and lemon Blend, as she awaited impromptu family visits, especially from the grandchildren who would walk to the house to ask Gramma for some chocolate chip cookies! She was lovingly dedicated to her family, and we were blessed to always have her love and support!
Friends will be received Sunday, April 21st at Devlin Funeral Home, 806 Perry Highway, Pittsburgh, PA 15237 (Ross Township), from 2- 6 p.m. A Catholic Mass will be held at 10:00 a.m. at St. Alexis Church, St. Aidan’s Parish, 10100 Old Perry Highway, Wexford, PA 15090 (McCandless).
