Virginia E. Kelsesky, better known as “Gee-Gee,” 85, of Harmar Township, entered her eternal rest on December 22, 2019. Loving wife of 59 years to Thomas V. Kelsesky, who preceded her in death in 2013, Gee-Gee was the devoted mother of Ellen (Tim) Hayes, Thomas J. Kelsesky, and Julie (Matt) Ashby. She had six wonderful grandchildren: Kelsey, Jenna, and Christopher Hayes; and T.J., Kaitlyn, and Kendra Kelsesky. She leaves behind two siblings, Joseph Mazza of Bradenton, Florida, and Carol (Mazza) Randolph, of Pittsburgh. Born in Punxsutawney, Gee-Gee grew up in Indiana, PA, and attended Slippery Rock State Teachers College. She taught physical education for a few years after getting married. Eventually, having moved to Pittsburgh, she remained at home to raise her family. Anyone who knew Gee-Gee benefited by her joyous spirit, unwavering optimism, and boundless capacity for love. Her legacy will be unending for those touched by this special, faith-filled woman. To celebrate her life, a Mass of the Resurrection will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, January 6, 2020, at St. Scholastica Church, 309 Brilliant Avenue, Aspinwall, followed by a luncheon. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the American Cancer Society at www.cancer.org.
