Brenda Kathleen “Kathy” Damaska, 75, of Chippewa Twp., passed away peacefully on Friday December 4th, 2020. Our hearts are heavy, but we know she has a special place in heaven and she will walk beside us everyday. Kathy was the best at everything she did – the best wife, best mom and grandma, best sister and best friend. She always filled the room with her infectious laughter, and had a kindness and generosity like no other.
Kathy was born on May 15, 1945 in Wheeling, WV to the late Roy and Mildred (Bumgardner) Snyder and was raised on the farmlands of Ohio. She graduated from Cadiz high school, earned an associates degree in business, worked for multiple companies as an administrative assistant, and ended her career after many years at Bayer Corp.
She met Jack while he was playing baseball in Columbus, Ohio and spent many years traveling with him, until they eventually settled in Beaver Falls.
More than anything, Kathy loved spending time with family and friends. She loved to cook, play cards and bingo, paint, fish, and watch baseball with Jack. She was always helping others and was a loyal, active, and long-time member of the Chippewa United Methodist Church. She touched so many lives and will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.
Kathy is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Jack Lloyd Damaska; two daughters, Jill Damaska and Joy (Bill) Weaver; a son, Dirk (Lisa) Damaska; four grandchildren, Madison and Mason Weaver and Dax and Luna Damaska; three sisters, Miriam (Lynn) Workley, Karen Swelbar and Nila (Allen) Swallie and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother, Donald (Jane) Milliken, and a grandson, Michael Weaver.
Details of a celebration of life ceremony will be announced at a later date.
