Carolyn P. Pellis, born November 17, 1942, went to Heaven on August 17, 2019. She graduated from Hempfield High School in 1961 where she also met the love of her life, the late Thomas M. Pellis. The two shared countless adventures together through their 51 years of marriage and laughed frequently. She never got over his passing. The family takes great comfort knowing they are reunited with the Lord in Heaven. Carolyn worked at West Penn Power before starting her family. Thereafter, for 20 some years she served as Secretary and Treasurer of Pellis Construction Company. She obtained her real estate license and enjoyed helping people find their homes. She was always learning new skills and took classes from computers to golf in later life. Carolyn adored her grandchildren and loved attending their sporting events and activities. She enjoyed the outdoors and gardening. She blessed everyone that knew her with her wonderful sense of humor, kindness, amazing smile and laugh. Carolyn was the daughter of the late Joseph C. Patrick and Mary L. Patrick, of Crabtree. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Thomas M. Pellis; and a sister, Eleanor Lenz. She is survived by four children, Thomas P. Pellis, John 'Jack' M. Pellis and wife Carla, Dreux Pellis and Carolyn 'Kelly' Pellis, all of Greensburg; ten grandchildren, Tommy, Isabella, John Paul, Marissa, Roman, Angelo, Mia Rose, Zachary, Justin and Eric Pellis; a sister Mary Lou Carter, and her husband William of Crabtree; brother, Gregory Patrick and wife Kathy of Greensburg; two sisters in law Maxine Pellis and Carole Pellis, both of Greensburg; a brother in law Gary Lenz of Williamsburg, VA and numerous nieces and nephews.
