CASEY
ALFRED JAMES, Jr.
Passed peacefully from this life on Saturday, May 28, 2016, with the love of his family lifting him up. Alfred, who went by "Al" and "Fred" to family and friends, was born in Clairton on Christmas Eve, 1922, to Alma Similo Casey and Alfred James Casey, Sr. His mother always called him "Junior." Alfred grew up in both Clairton and Blythedale, where he spent summers with his Grandmother Similo and Aunt Eva, pestering the miners at the Union Hall and playing baseball. He graduated from Clairton High School in 1941 where he played clarinet in the marching band. He entered the U.S. Army in 1943 and was deployed with the 631st Ordnance Ammunition Company to England before landing at Utah Beach and advancing with the Allied armies through Belgium and France. His campaigns include Normandy, Northern France and Rhineland and he was awarded the European, African, Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with three Bronze Stars. Alfred was among the support units in the Battle of the Bulge where he worked to secure ammunition dumps as the Nazis broke through. On every Christmas Eve birthday, Alfred reminded us that in 1944, he ate cold rations on the staircase of a small hotel in a village that was under attack, wondering if he would survive. He did and returned to marry the love of his life, Abigail Kittiko of McKeesport. They lived in McKeesport and White Oak for 66 years of marriage. Abigail died on December 17, 2014. Alfred worked as a carpenter at Clairton and Homestead Works until too many lay-offs and strike threats caused him to take a job selling insurance for the National Life and Accident Insurance Company and then The Prudential Insurance Company where he earned many sales awards. Alfred retired in 1986 and attended Penn State University McKeesport Campus where he took literature and writing courses and actually had some poetry published. Penn State was tough, because he was a Pitt man through and through and delighted in wearing his Golden Panthers sweatshirt to class and the library. He was a voracious reader of newspapers and books and loved to talk about current events, politics, boxing, Pirates baseball and all Pitt sports, especially football. His opinions often found their way into the McKeesport Daily News as letters to the editor. Springs and summers were spent in his flower and vegetable gardens. No matter the season, he would frequently visit the Carnegie Library and Museum and Phipps Conservatory in Oakland, the Carnegie Library McKeesport, The Penn State Library and The McKeesport Heritage Center. He was a member of the American Legion and St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church in McKeesport. Alfred is survived by his brother, William Casey (Margarete, deceased) of West Mifflin; his four children, Clareanne Best of Sewickley, Christine Casey of Pittsburgh, Mark Casey (Lynnette) of Phoenix, Arizona, Victoria Tomcik (Michael) of Port Vue; his nephews, Bill Casey (Janie) of Clairton and Karl Casey of Pittsburgh. Pap Fred will be missed by grandchildren, Donna Lippock (Steve), Brian Best (Krista), Daniel Best, Elizabeth Best (Crispin), Rosie McDunn, Matthew, Maegan and Terese Casey and Sarah Rutherford (Zachary), Stephanie Didjunas (Matthew), Samantha Roland (Patrick); and 12 great-grandchildren. Alfred was proud of his children and loved playing with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, especially when they were babies. Visitation is at JAYCOX - JAWORSKI FUNERAL HOME in McKeesport Thursday, June 2, 2016, 2 p.m.-4 p.m. and 6 p.m.-8 p.m. Funeral Mass begins at 10 a.m. Friday, June 3, 2016, at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church with interment to follow in Penn Lincoln Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Carnegie Library, McKeesport Public Library, McKeesport Heritage Center, or Family Hospice and Palliative Care at Canterbury Place.

POPPICK
IRENE "RENIE"
Of Murrysville, formerly of Turtle Creek, passed away on May 25, 2016, at Golden LivingCenter of Murrysville. Born July 25, 1927, in Jermyn, PA, daughter of the late John Poppick and Mary Suvak Poppick Dublik. Her father, an immigrant coal miner, died of tuberculosis at the age of 39 in 1931 and was buried in Jermyn, PA. Her mother contracted tuberculosis and was admitted to the Trudeau Sanitarium at Saranac Lake, where she not only recovered but witnessed the 1936 Olympics. At the age of four, Irene was sitting on a wall with some playmates when she was pushed off by a neighbor who did not want them there. It would take several years to discover that she had dislocated her hip. She was cared for first by her mother's relatives and then by the Scranton West Side Hospital for three years, though the medical technology of the day was unable to correct the injury. Her case attracted attention, and she became known in the Scranton Republican and in The Scrantonian as "Little Irene." The many Christmas toys donated by strangers to her at the time were distributed equally among the hospitalized children. After leaving the hospital she attended school in Jermyn for three years before joining her mother, sisters, and brothers who were living in Linhart (Wilkins Township), PA. She graduated from Turtle Creek High School in 1947 and then worked in Gordon's Drug store and the Frederick Theater in East Pittsburgh. In 1952 she began work as a secretary at the Westinghouse plant in East Pittsburgh, retiring in 1987. In her later years the multiple joint replacements she underwent did not deter her from extensive travel with her family and with her significant other, the late Robert Plance of Murrysville. Her positive and cheerful personality, despite her troublesome and painful physical condition, were an inspiration to her family and all who knew her. Preceded in death by her mother; her sister, Eleanor Anderson of Sacramento, CA; and her brothers, Andrew of Fresno, CA, and John of Irwin, PA, both combat veterans of WWII. Aunt of David Anderson of Butler, PA, Paula (Tom) Poppick Steiner of Irwin, Daniel (Sandi) Anderson of New Jersey, Dale (Cindy) Anderson of Rocklin, CA, Timothy Poppick of Irwin, Jennifer Jill Anderson of Massachusetts, and Nancy Anderson Bevilacqua of Lower Burrell; great-aunt of Melissa (Sean) Anderson Salsgiver of Glen Campbell, PA, Daniel (Madeline) Anderson of Gibsonia, PA, Taylor Arsenault of Massachusetts, Kyle Anderson of Portland, Dominic and Eric Bevilacqua of Lower Burrell, and Lauren Steiner of Irwin; great-great-aunt of Gwendolyn Marie Anderson of Gibsonia. Private family burial Wednesday in Restland Memorial. A Memorial Visitation and service will be held June 10, 2016, Noon - 2 p.m. followed by a service at the JOBE FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY INC. (MONROEVILLE / PLUM), corner of (445) Beatty Rd. and 48 North, Monroeville, (412-856-4747).
