HOHMANN
ROSE (GYEKIS)
Age 96, of Shaler, on March 13, 2015, following a brief battle with cancer. Born December 8, 1918, in Philadelphia, PA, daughter of the late Henry Gyekis and Bess (Sklaroff) Gyekis, she resided in the Pittsburgh area nearly all of her life. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 64 years, Charles F. Hohmann, Sr.; and her sister and brother-in-law, Jean and Earl McCarty, of Encinitas, CA. She and her husband loved to travel and toured extensively throughout the continental USA. One of her fondest memories was driving twice to Alaska with Charles in their RV. Rose loved animals and was an avid birdwatcher. She owned and operated the Rose Hohmann School of Dance for over 35 years, bringing joy to several generations of children, before retiring. Rose lived out William Shakespeare's words that "All the world's a stage…" Her passion for performing and boundless energy led her to organize and direct the Evergreen Players, a local touring group of entertainers, who performed for veterans hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, and nursing homes in the 60s and 70s. She was a member of the former Evergreen Methodist Church, on Babcock Blvd., where she formed and led the Evergreen Seniors Group, volunteered at the local Meals on Wheels, was a member of the Audubon Society, and a participant in the hiking group at North Park. Even at age 96, her spirited personality continued to rejuvenate the people around her with her infectious smile and twinkle in her eyes. Her family will forever remember her home cooking, her delicious apple pies and chocolate cakes. Surviving are four children, Elva H. (David) Scapes, McCandless, Charles F. Hohmann, Jr., Wexford, Rose Marie (Donald) Nelson, Freedom, Jeanne C. Gounaris, Ross Twp.; six grandchildren, Karen (Rick) Kaiser, Bradford Woods, Jennifer (Keith) Christy, McCandless, Lisa (Brad) Ramirez , Denver, CO, Brian (Lisa) Hohmann, McCandless, Kimberly Nelson, Arlington, VA, and Melissa (Sean) Bahoshy, Denver, CO; ten great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; four half-brothers-in-law; and six half-sisters-in-law; and numerous nephews, cousins and friends. The family wishes to thank the staff of RoseCrest for their compassionate and loving care of our mother. A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in the name of Rose Hohmann may be sent to Animal Rescue League, Attn: Donations, 6620 Hamilton Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15206 or National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), Attn: Donations, 777 6th Street, NW, Suite 700, Washington, D.C. 20001-3723.

HUGHES
EDWARD E. III "SANDY"
Age 69, of Sewickley on March 17, 2015. After a valiant battle with lung cancer, Sandy passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family. Born in 1945 in Pittsburgh to the late Edward E. Hughes II and Elizabeth Davis Hughes. Sandy attended Edgewood High School where he excelled in basketball and tennis, highlighted by sectional titles and the 1962 WPIAL Basketball Championship. Sandy studied Civil Engineering at Lafayette College, graduating in 1968 as a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. He married his beloved Constance (Connie) Keck at Edgewood Presbyterian Church in 1971. Sandy began his career with Koppers Company, but soon realized a compelling interest in commercial construction, working first in Washington, D.C. and ultimately in Pittsburgh. He worked for Landau Building Company for 25 years, managing projects in hospitals, universities, churches, and office buildings. His most recent projects as a private consultant included the new WPXI-TV studio facility and a manufacturing plant in Memphis, TN. His projects won numerous Master Builders Awards. Sandy and Connie loved renovating old houses. His talent for woodworking was evident in his Welsh stick and Windsor chairs, a canoe, tables, beds, carved boxes, turned bowls and several guitars, and he delighted in passing on his craft to others. He loved sailing, music, old cars, poetry, building fences, and spending time at the Farm with his family and friends. Sandy and Connie were members at St. Stephens Church, Sewickley, and flourished in their small group under the leadership of Dr. Steve Smith. Since 2010, Sandy had loved being a part of Christ Church Fox Chapel where Connie is Associate Rector. He was a member of the Pittsburgh Experiment for 30 years, and a steadfast friend of Bill W. for 35 years. Survived by his wife, the Rev. Connie Hughes; and daughters, Jessica Hughes Breedlove (Alan) of Gibsonia and Corinne Hughes Dlugonski (Bernie) of Leetsdale; and beloved brother of Katharine Leatham, Molly Brown, and Dory Spencer. He was Pop-pop to his beloved seven grandchildren, Teddy, Sophie, Katharine, Madeline, Charlie, Emma, and Henry Breedlove. Sandy's approach to life was ebullient, always positive, ever grateful, celebratory, expressing his delight in "the best" of each person, each moment, each meal, each day. He quietly impacted many lives with his deep well of wisdom, acceptance and love. His last piece of advice to his family: "If you have any questions, ask Teddy." The family will receive friends on Thursday, March 26, 2015, from 1:00-3:00 p.m. and 6:00-8:00 p.m. at theWEDDELL - AJAK FUNERAL HOME, 100 Center Ave. , Aspinwall. A Service of Resurrection will be held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, March 27, 2015, at Church of the Ascension, Oakland.
