    • Hard worker from Greensburg got family through Depression
      Jerry VondasJERRY VONDAS | Wednesday, August 20, 2008

      At an age when many girls were helping around the house, Anna Kish made handcrafted lamps to earn money for her family during the Depression.

      During World War II - when her first husband, Andrew Remas, was serving in the Navy - she worked at a munitions plant in Hays.

      Anna Osak Kish, formerly of McKeesport, died Saturday, Aug. 16, 2008, in St. Anne Home, Greensburg. She was 92.

      Upon the death of her husband in 1944, Mrs. Kish worked at a glass factory to support her two young daughters.

      "My mother was not only a good worker who never let any adversity get her down, but she was also a happy and fun-loving woman who people liked," said Florence Petras of Murrysville.

      "She was always on the go, and that's why she loved living in McKeesport with its mills, churches and busy shopping areas.

      "Mom fit in wherever she went, whether it was at the restaurant, her church or at a bingo game."

      After she married Nicholas Kish, who she met at his N&M Restaurant in McKeesport, she joined him in the restaurant's kitchen.

      "It was a fairly big restaurant that not only catered to the men and women who worked at (U.S. Steel's) National Tube, but the various businesses," Petras said. "And on busy days, Mom would also go out on the floor and wait on customers."

      Born and raised in Johnstown, Mrs. Kish was one of nine children of bar owner and steelworker John Osak and his wife, Anna Yavorsky Osak, who had emigrated from the Ukraine.

      Janice Bishop of McKeesport recalled her mother's commitment to her family, especially to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

      "My mother would take them for long bus rides and on picnics. She even took my children to Disney World in Florida."

      Bishop said her mother spent many hours in her kitchen at home baking and cooking for the holidays.

      "She was known for her Easter pascha, her ice-box cookies and her chicken noodle soup. My mother also enjoyed crocheting and creating numerous crafts that she sold."

      In addition to daughters Florence and Janice, Mrs. Kish is survived by two daughters, Dorothy Kennedy of Redding, Calif., and Barbara Eckes of Pell City, Ala.; 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

      She was predeceased by husbands Andrew Remas, in 1944, and Nicholas Kish, in 1982; seven brothers, John, Michael, Charles, Andrew, Peter, Paul and George; a sister, Mary Bednar; and a grandson, Jason Eckes.

      Friends will be received from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. today at the Jaycox-Jaworski Funeral Home, 2703 O?Neil Blvd., McKeesport, where a parastas will be at 4 p.m.

      A Divine Liturgy of Christian Burial will be offered at 10:30 a.m. Thursday in St. Nicholas Byzantine Church, McKeesport, with the Rev. Donald Voss and the Rev. Edward Litavec as co-celebrants. The Rev. Anthony Wozniak will deliver the eulogy.

      Interment will follow in St. Nicholas Cemetery, North Versailles.
