Maxine Slavonsky Brunwasser

BRUNWASSER: Maxine Slavonsky Brunwasser: Loving daughter of the late Florence (Weinberg) and Maurice Slavonsky, devoted wife of the late Albert Brunwasser, and wonderful mother of Lou Ann (Cliff) May, Brenda (Jeff) Southworth, Eileen (Randy) Sherman and Allison (Jeff) Nabonsal. Grandmother of 10 devoted grandchildren: Miranda and Evan May; Griffin, Gillian and Tyler Southworth; Justin and Marissa Sherman; Alex, Nate and Sabrina Nabonsal; and dog mom to her rescue princess, Zelda. Maxine was born in New Castle, Pennsylvania, and grew up surrounded by a loving family with many aunts, uncles and cousins. She graduated from the Canonsburg General Hospital Nurses Training Program before a brief stint in the U.S. Army Reserve as a registered nurse. Throughout her lengthy career at Kane Hospital, Woodville and Mayview State Hospitals, she made many lifelong friends. Upon her retirement as a nursing supervisor, she enjoyed traveling to visit her daughters and her extended family. She also found the time to see a bit of the world with friends and relatives. Some of Maxine’s favorite things to do included touring museums, seeing a show, sampling baked goods, watching ghost movies and enjoying a restaurant meal out with friends. But more than anything else, she loved to shop, and especially enjoyed a one-day sale. She is famous for her cookie baking, and we will all miss her delicious treats. (Although, she herself could have lived exclusively on banana splits!) She was a longtime member of Beth El Congregation of the South Hills and enjoyed participating in First Monday programs there. Maxine was fun and funny, a great mom and grandma to her daughters, grandchildren and Chihuahua, Zelda. She will be sorely missed by many. Services and interment private. Donations can be made in Maxine’s memory to Washington Area Humane Society at washingtonpashelter.org. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., family owned and operated. www.schugar.com PJC
