Catherine Smith Mehalic

Mehalic, Catherine (Smith), 81, passed away peacefully on August 20, 2019, at Great Falls Assisted Living in Northern Virginia, surrounded by her loving family and caregivers. She was born on March 12, 1938, in Windber. She married the love of her life, John “Sharkey” Mehalic, who preceded her in death in 1984.  They moved to Virginia where they raised their two children, John, married to Lisa and Cathy, married to Donald Ward.  Her grandchildren: Ryan, Mason, Austin, Logan, Erin and Ellen; and great grandson Aiden, all lived nearby in Potomac Falls, Virginia. Catherine was a dedicated and loving mother and grandmother.  She was very creative, and enjoyed sewing and gardening and cooking.  She adored birds and dogs and surrounded herself with them throughout her life. You would always see her with a cup of coffee in one hand and a crossword puzzle in her other.  She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
