Irene B. "Bubbie" Yancich

 

Irene B. ''Bubbie'' Yancich, 93, of Richeyville, died Sunday, July 10, 2022. Born in Linn/Redstone Township on November 29, 1928, she was the daughter of the late George and Elizabeth (Heyges) Betsko.  

Affectionately known by all as "Bubbie”, Irene was an honor roll student throughout her tenure at Redstone High School where in 1945, she proudly graduated 3rd in her class.  Keenly astute in shorthand, she served as an executive administrative assistant prior to starting a family and later in life, sought further education at Douglas Business Institute.  Irene was a member of the former St. Agnes Catholic Church in Richeyville, PA. Bubbie was a big fan of Elvis, polkas, and was known for her authentic, Eastern European cooking.  She cherished her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren more than anything and was truly happiest sharing meals and memories with those she loved. 

She is survived by her sons, Paul "Chip" Yancich Jr. of Canonsburg, PA. and Thomas (Mary Lynn) Yancich of Washington, PA.; daughters, Lorraine (Larry) Damich of Rostraver, PA., and Lynne (Michael) Lockovich of Venetia, PA.; her 7 grandchildren whom she dearly loved, Matthew Damich of Rostraver, PA., Scott (Kate) Damich of Jackson, MI., Brianna (Guido) LaPorta of Chicago, IL., Jamie (Jason) Knizner of Bridgeville, PA., Michael (fiancé` Cody Hickton) Yancich of Canonsburg, PA., Stephanie (Vincent) Courtney of Pittsburgh, PA., and Ian Lockovich of Venetia, PA.; 3 great grandsons, Ezra, Isaac and Jack; and brother, Stephen (Kathleen) Betsko of Homosassa, FL. 

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Paul Yancich on January 21, 2000; brother, John Betsko; and most recently by her loving sister, Anna E. Betsko, who passed away on July 2, 2022.
