Katherine T. Moretti

May 10, 2020


Katherine T. (nee Pavlovic) Moretti, formerly of Russellton and Harwick passed away on Thursday, May 7, 2020, at Amber Woods, Harmar Township. Mum was born to Peter and Elizabeth (nee Mart) Pavlovic and arrived on Christmas Day. She was a graduate of West Deer High School. Mum believed in education and bettering oneself. As a grandmother, Mum continued to display this attribute by earning her Bachelors’ Degree in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh, an achievement of which she was so proud.  Kathy worked as a bookkeeper at Ben’s Clothing, New Kensington. She was employed by the VNA as Director of Finance. Later, until her retirement, Mum was Manager of Human Resources at Brashear in RIDC Park.  Mum was a true renaissance woman.

Mum is predeceased by her husband, Felice “Sonny” Moretti, her parents and siblings John, Michael, Eleanor Patterson, and Rosemarie Caldwell. She is survived by her children, Jocelyn (David) Blood, Mays Landing, NJ; Felicia (Joseph) O’Neill, Bloomington, MN; Leslie Moretti, Newtown Square, PA; and Rex Moretti, Trout Creek, MT. Mum is also survived by her sister, Amelia (Wayne) Tepke, West Deer and her brother Joseph Pavlovic of Madison, OH. She is also the proud “Bubbi” of Vincent McCall (Meredith), Russell McCall, Claire O’Neill, Leigh O’Neill, and Taylor (Bryan) O’Neill Brutlag, and great grandchildren Ella and Harper McCall and Paige Brutlag.

Mum loved cooking. She will be especially remembered for her Post Christmas Eve Mass Feasts. Additionally, Mum enjoyed working out, walking, movies, bowling, and was a voracious reader.

Finally, our family would like to thank the wonderful and caring staff at Amber Woods for their kindness and professionalism during her time there. Our Mum had exceptional care. All of you are truly Angels. Special thanks go out to Stacy, RN from Family Hospice who held Mum’s hand as she passed.
