Nelva Louise (Cordial) Froetschel

  • On February 16, 2021

Nelva Louise (Cordial) Froetschel 91, passed peacefully on February 8, in Bethel Park.  She was one of six children born in Westmoreland County to Stephen and Bernadine (Naylor) Cordial.  Nelva was a devoted wife to Regis Froetschel (deceased) for 52 years, and a loving mother of four children, Regis Jr. (deceased), Joseph (Joan), Valerie, and Michael (deceased), 4 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren.

Nelva worked as a UPMC telephone operator until she was 80 years old, where she fondly became recognized as the voice of the morning announcements and could be found feeding the pigeons on her lunch break daily.  She could spark a meaningful conversation with anyone, including total strangers, especially when talking about their pets.  She had a kind, loving spirit and particularly enjoyed fresh flowers, shopping, traveling, and spending time with her family.  The family held a very small, private viewing, but is welcoming condolences, memories, and heartfelt wishes at pittsburghcremation.com.
