Kathryn J. (Kokal) Rusnock

April 11, 1928 — December 29, 2022

Kathryn Kokal Rusnock, 94, of Perryopolis, died peacefully on Thursday, December 29, 2022, at Westmoreland Hospital, surrounded by family.  Kathryn (Kay/Katie) was born April 11, 1928, in New Kensington, PA, the daughter of the late Frank and Pauline (Kacin) Kokal.  Her lifetime passion was caring for her family and loved ones.  Kay was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 64 years, Regis, infant son Ronald, brothers Paul Kokal and Frank Kokal and sister Teresa Potts. She is survived by her children Regis P. Rusnock (Linda) of Ames, IA; Lawrence (Kim) Rusnock of Greensburg, PA; Cynthia (Chris) Peta of Irwin, PA; and Karen (Greg) Tylka of Ames, IA; four grandchildren, Lindsey (Bobby) Swartz, Jessica Rusnock (Steve), Kristin (Michael) De Jong and Justin (Michelle) Tylka; two great-grandchilden, Juliette and Avett Swartz; sisters Paula Hribar and Mary Jane Rutherford, sister-in-law Ruzena Kokal; and several nieces and nephews and their families. She loved us all as her “dear little Chookies”. Kay loved and faithfully served her Saint John the Baptist Parish and the Perryopolis community. She enjoyed many years of gathering with her “birthday club ladies” as well as playing in the women’s bocce league.  Lastly, she was proud of and loved her Slovenian heritage.
