In lieu of flowers, they made Mom sneeze; please consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association, 1100 Liberty Ave, Suite E-201, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, in memory of Pat Puchko. Mom was a tough lady and she wouldn’t want us to be sad because she is in her eternal home with Dad and pain free. We will miss Mom forever, and were blessed to have her for 88 years. So celebrate her life, lift a vodka tonic or dry red wine, roll a duckpin ball, or yell bingo in her memory. We love you Mom I hope God is ready for you and Pap dancing again.
