Obituary for Elsie Rae Kuzniewski

Elsie Rae Kuzniewski, 91, of Gibsonia, died Tuesday evening, June 11, 2019, peacefully at home with family members present.

Born in Pittsburgh on July 28, 1927, she was the daughter of Raymond and Leona (Sauer) Sollberger.

She was graduated from Robinson Township High School in 1945. She showed a particular affinity toward mathematics. She attended the University of Pittsburgh and Gettysburg College. Returning to Pittsburgh she was a secretary for Dravo Corporation. While enjoying Saturday nights at Danceland in West View, PA she met her future husband. In 1956 Elsie married Joseph Kuzniewski. The couple built a house in Gibsonia where they raised their children.

Elsie was active at St. Catherine of Sweden Catholic, parish in Wildwood, PA with many years of service to Christian Women, and the St. Vincent DePaul Society. She helped sew hundreds of baptismal garments for church christenings. In earlier years she was active in Girl and Boy Scouts where she joined in the camping and hiking. For many years she was Girl Scout Neighborhood Chairman. She rarely sat still including assembling trusses for her daughter’s house while in her 70’s and maintaining her yard into her 90’s.

Elsie enjoyed driving and turned that enjoyment into employment as a driver for a Butler Auto Auction and a U.S. Post Rural Mail Carrier. She set foot in all 50 states including driving to Alaska and enduring a flight to Hawaii.

She is survived by her daughters, Judith Kuzniewski, of Indiana, PA and Jane (Timothy) Cochran, of Alfred, NY; son, Vincent (Cassandra) Kuzniewski, of Gibsonia, PA; stepdaughters, Mildred Rankin and Patricia Schneider. In addition, she was blessed with seven grandchildren; Eryn, Bridget and Silas Cochran and Kelsey, Joseph, Carolyn, and Alexander Kuzniewski.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph, who passed away in 2000 and her parents and brother, Raymond Sollberger, Jr..

Elsie’s family will welcome friends from 4 -8 P.M. on Sunday, June 16, 2019 at King Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Inc., 2841 Woodland Circle in Allison Park.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 A.M. on Monday, June 17, at St. Catherine of Sweden Roman Catholic Church, 2554 Wildwood Road in Allison Park.
