Mary Elizabeth “Betty” McGuire age 95, of Allison Park, passed peacefully at home on Tuesday, Dec. 28, 2021, surrounded by her six children.
Born on Dec. 21, 1926, in Pittsburgh, Betty was the daughter of the late Anna G. and Christopher W. Winter, Sr.
Betty was a long-time member of the St. Ursula’s Christian Mothers, and an avid bridge player for more than 50 years.
Betty and her husband, Jim, established the annual family vacation to Chautauqua Lake, NY, when their children were young. Since then, trips to the lake have become a cherished tradition for their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Betty was a devoted and caring mother to Betty Ann (Bob) Kossler, Barb (late Rick) Faccenda, Marylou (Bill) Nemeth, Patty (Mike) Cooknick, Jim McGuire, and John (Laurie) McGuire. She was a wonderful Grandma to 14 grandchildren, and loving “Nana” to 11 great-grandchildren, all of whom will miss her dearly.
In addition to her parents, Betty was preceded in death by her beloved husband, James L. “Jim” McGuire, Jr., on Oct. 23, 2002; and her siblings, Harold Winter, Dorothy (Edward) Cooper, and Christopher W. (Eleanor) Winter, Jr.
In Lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial donations be made in Betty’s honor to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank or to Little Sisters of the Poor.
Because of COVID, services will be private and for immediate family only at St. Ursula’s Catholic Church.
