Theresa C. (Gonchar) Kolarik,

Age 86 of McCandless Twp. on Monday, November 30, 2020. For 59 years, Theresa was the beloved wife of the late Albert Kolarik and the loving mother of Kathleen Fultz, Carolyn Mech, Susan Rogers (Steve) and the late David Kolarik (Linda Mackaly). She was proud to be the grandmother of Anthony, Cory, Jason and Kyle Fultz. Sister of Rose Ciganik, OFM Br. John Joseph Gonchar, Albert Gonchar (Lee), the late Mary Dvorsky, the late Helen Kamenar and the late Josephine Scappe; she is also survived by many loving relatives and friends.

Theresa was the glue for the Kolarik family. She was also a hairstylist extraordinaire, the best chauffeur ever, the keeper of the calendar and the recipient of endless phone calls from her children and grandchildren, asking for her always excellent advice. She also had well-developed skills with brown bag sandwiches and laundry service. Theresa could have become a plumber or a roofer-she had experience with both. What she did best of all, though, was love everyone around her unconditionally.

Loved ones will be received Thursday, December 3rd from 2-3PM and again from 5-7PM at DEVLIN FUNERAL HOME, INC., 806 Perry Hwy., Pittsburgh, 15229. Please note that all local COVID-19 guidelines will be followed, and face coverings are mandatory. A mass of Christian Burial will be at St. Aidan Parish (formerly St. Alexis-10090 Old Perry Hwy., Wexford, 15090) on Friday December 4th at 10AM.
