Ruth Elizabeth Harger Kwasny Wensing


Ruth Elizabeth Harger Kwasny Wensing, 85, of Uniontown, passed away August 5, 2019, at Uniontown Hospital Emergency Room, Uniontown.

She was born in Newell October 23, 1933, a daughter of the late Martin and Ruth Roberson Harger.

Ruth started "Travel with Jesus" (her first love), by taking several trips to Washington, D.C., to attend the March for Life Pro-Life Movement. She was involved with the Full Gospel Ministry for 15 years and had Mulligan Manor Christian Dinners for 10 years and Singers & Food every Thursday at Brownsville Mission for 10 years.

She was a loving mother and a very generous person, who loved to dance and sang like an angel. No one went hungry if Ruth could help it. Her life was dedicated to making and donating food and her time. Strong faith led her to travels in Europe and Jerusalem in support of a variety of programs she loved.

Surviving are her daughters, Patty (Bob) Kwasny Teeter Fromm, Dolores "DoeDoe" Kwasny Abbey and Karen (Mark) Kwasny Maples Reynolds and daughter-in-law Tammy Kwasny; 11 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Ruth was predeceased by husbands John Kwasny and John Wensing; children Billy Kwasny, Michael "Mike-eye" Kwasny and JoAnn Kwasny Kovach; grandchildren Kathy Ruth and George Patrick Teeter; siblings Harry, Robert, Delores, William, Andrew, Martin, John, Eileen, Alice, Eleanor and Edwin. Ruth was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

The family wishes to thank ALL of those who cared for and were with Ruth, especially when nearing the end. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to Karen Reynolds and can be sent to the funeral home.

Friends will be received from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, August 12, in JOHN S. MAYKUTH JR. FUNERAL HOME, 7 River Avenue, Masontown, and until the 11 a.m. hour of service Tuesday, August 13, in the funeral home chapel with Father William G. Berkey officiating.

Internment in National Cemetery of the Alleghenies, Bridgeville.
