Darcy Mueller

  • On June 24, 2020

On June 23, 2020, Darcy Mueller lost her six-month battle with brain cancer, but don’t remember her for that. Instead, remember the always-on-the-go lady who loved music, nursing and being active.

Darcy, in her 61 years of life, spent her time singing in the choir at Holy Trinity, biking on the Montour trail with her husband, Dave, and lounging at the Robinson pool. She took a walk every day – rain, snow or shine – and may have known the neighborhood dogs’ names better than the humans.

She was incredibly proud of and passionate about her career in nursing, especially her job as the Sto-Rox School nurse. She even informed the doctors that they will have to do the March physicals in her place if she wasn’t out of the hospital in time. She enjoyed being part of the students’ lives, especially helping at proms, homecomings and any other events.

As the resident photographer at family events, she made sure everything was documented and although many moaned, the family was grateful. Make sure you take a photo next time you are with your loved ones, or just because!

Darcy is survived by her husband of 40 years, Dave, and two daughters, Stephanie Pedersen and Natalie Mueller. She was loved by many. Her family included her son-in-law, Brad Pedersen; her aunt, Patty Claus; sister, Cheryl Lieb and family; and brother, Bill Dolinick and family and the extended family of the Mueller side.

Please join the family in remembering the good times on Monday, June 29, 2020 from 2-4 and 6-8 pm at Pittsburgh Cremation & Funeral Care, 5405 Steubenville Pike, Robinson Township, PA 15136. (412) 787-1800. Mass of Christian Burial will be held Tuesday at 10 am at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 5718 Steubenville Pike, McKees Rocks, PA 15136.

The family is also hosting a memorial celebration on July 11, 2020. If you would like to join, please contact Stephanie Pedersen or Dave Mueller for details.

Dear Dave, Stephanie and Natalie: I am shocked to learn of Darcy’s death and so very sorry for your loss. She was always the first to volunteer for anything at Sto-Rox and was passionate about her work and commitment to students. When I was struggling she always had a friendly message and a listening ear. I use a bar daily to do squats that she gave me. My deepest sympathies. Melanie Kerber, Ocean Pines, Md

To the Mueller Family, I am so saddened at the loss of Darcy. I have worked with her for many years and will miss seeing her!!! She was always so positive, I will miss our talks and her little gifts she would give me "just because" like her jam from your yard. Please take comfort in knowing that she was appreciated and loved by many. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. Sincerely, Beth Harvey

I will miss Darcy at our monthly Book Clubs, she always was an enthusiastic participant and took notes on every book. She was a big supporter of Robinson Library as a Friend of the Library and volunteer for Book Sales and other events.

Dave, Stephanie and Natalie, Our sympathy to you on the passing of your wife and mom. Darcy will be dearly missed. We have seen her love for all on her daily walks and have returned that love. Cooper would recognize her and wag his tail as fast as he could to get her attention. Of course she would see him and come running over laughing all the way to greet him with a treat. No matter what time of the year, whether she was wearing shorts or bundled up in snow pants and a ski jacket, Darcy would always spare a moment to make her furry friends happy. Of course it gave us a minute to say a few words also. May she Rest In Peace. You will be dearly missed by all dear friend and neighbor. Ken, Marcy, Danielle and Cooper

Dear Darcy- I find I am already missing our walks together and our talks about life, family (daughters), vacations, sewing, making cookies and her love of making jam. We also would discuss retirement which I think she was looking forward to when the time came. And me selfishly thinking time for walks would be unlimited. I miss you friend, I see you whenever I pass the berry bushes and of course pass your house. Always in my heart.

My deepest condolences to Darcy's family! We knew each other by phone (never actually met in person) as we exchanged countless phone calls for student records. I worked in Pittsburgh Public School District and had school assignments in the West area of the city. Many students and their families would move frequently between Sto Rox and the city. I was always glad to spend a few minutes talking with her...always upbeat, and very organized. As school nurses, I know she was one of the best. Prayers of comfort and solace for all of you, Kathleen Crisanti
