Joanne Kobosky, age 54 of Castle Shannon, passed away suddenly on June 10, 2022.
Loving daughter to Lucille Kobosky and the late Robert A. Kobosky. Dear sister to MaryAnn (Darrell) Gray, Dianne (Albert) Metro, Luann Quigley and Robin (David) Keefe. Also, survived by many loving nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
Joanne was a lifelong Castle Shannon resident who loved three things: her family, her job and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Joanne had many nieces and nephews, whom she loved dearly, but her great nieces and nephews were the center of her world. She loved showing pictures of them to her friends, taking pictures at their birthday parties and spoiling them with gifts. Joanne worked as an Accountant for BallyMoney in Pittsburgh. Her co-workers were her extended family, and she loved them dearly. Finally, those who knew Joanne knew she loved the Pittsburgh Penguins. She has been a season ticket holder for the last 34 years. From autographs, pictures, parades, games and personal player friends, Joanne’s heart belonged to those Penguins. On Friday, June 10th, the Pittsburgh Penguins lost their biggest fan!
Friends will be received on Saturday, June 18, 2022, from 2-4 pm at Pittsburgh Cremation & Funeral Care, 3287 Washington Road, McMurray, PA 15317. Please join us in honoring Joanne by wearing Black and Gold/Penguin attire.
