Obituary for Mary Ann (Kreisel) Nicotra

Mary Ann (Kreisel) Nicotra, beloved wife of John S. Nicotra, in their 60th year of marriage, transitioned from life to reward peacefully in the comfort of her home on January 13, 2018. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by grandsons Matthew Schmitt & J.R. Nicotra. 
   Loving mother of Valerie Schmitt (Richard), John Nicotra, Terri Fedoronko (Gary), Randy Nicotra, & Timothy Nicotra (Jennifer). She will also be sadly missed by her 10 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, brother Art Kreisel (Annette), her dog Bella and several nieces & nephews.
   In addition to being the backbone of the family, Mary Ann was an avid quilter who made over 100 quilts & wall hangings, winning numerous awards including best-in-show. Mary Ann’s primary purpose in entering quilt shows was to have professional judges’ critique her work. She was a longtime member of North Pittsburgh Quilters Guild & the APC Quilters. She enjoyed the quilting retreats with friends at Camp Lutherlyn.
She was a member of St Catherine of Sweden Church, involved with its Christian Women Organization, volunteered sewing baptismal gowns, and performed many other selfless acts. 
   A child at heart, she will always be known for her awesome parties, mouth-watering recipes, and all the extra-special touches she put on everything she did. She gave many people a lifetime of beautiful memories.
   A special thanks to all the staff at Family Hospice & Palliative Care whose compassion was immeasurable.
   In lieu of flowers, a charitable contribution to Wounded Warrior Project is appreciated.
