Obituary

Lois W. Kiselica, of Mt. Lebanon and summer resident of Conneaut Lake, PA, passed away on Friday, December 10, 2021. Lois was the daughter of the late Edward C. and Minnie Wachter; devoted wife of 41 years to the late Stephen Kiselica; beloved mother of Lynn Kiselica, and beloved grandmother of Dmitri James, Darius Stephen, and Anastacia Lynn Zalnasky; sister of Edward C.

Serra, Lillian Kiselica, Irene Kiselica, and the late John Kiselica, Joseph Kiselica, Mary Perch, Stephen Perch, Olga Mihalik, Nicholas Mihalik, and Rozalia Kiselica. Lois is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and countless friends. Lois was a graduate of Duquesne University and a teacher for 44 years in the Pittsburgh Public Schools at West Liberty Elementary and Brookline Elementary where she taught first grade for nearly her entire career. After she retired, Lois enjoyed teaching her three grandchildren, and she considered them an endless source of pride and joy. Lois was a faithful Catholic parishioner of Mary Queen of Peace Parish, formerly Prince of Peace Parish. For many years, in addition to Sunday mass, Lois attended liturgy with her husband and family at St. Mary Orthodox Church where she was also a member. At St. Mary’s, Lois was instrumental in various fundraising endeavors, volunteering numerous hours preparing food for spaghetti dinners and Lenten food festivals, and generously supporting these and other church events. During summers, Lois enjoyed boating at Conneaut Lake and was secretary of the Konneaut Trail Association. Her compassion, selflessness, generosity, and skilled teaching will be greatly missed by family, friends, and all who knew her. May her memory be eternal.  Friends received at John J.
