Theresa L. (Lucas) Peckyno, 93, of Gibsonia, died Friday, April 17, 2020 in the St. Barnabas Nursing Home. She was born December 16, 1926, in Charleroi, a daughter of the late Joseph and Matilda Skibo Lucas. Theresa was a member of St. Sebastian Church in Belle Vernon. She loved God, bowling, and her family. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother, baked often, and was a bowler up until the age of 92. She greeted everyone with a warm smile and a warm plate. We will always remember Theresa as a faithful, strong, and selfless woman with a heart of gold. She never saw obstacles; she conquered every moment with grace, tenacity and heart. She put everyone she loved first, always giving of any little that she had. Her arthritic and softened hands reflect 93 years of hard work and love that she poured into every part of her family and Church. In the words of another great, Frank Sinatra, Theresa “lived a life that's full, traveled each and every highway, and more, much more than this, —-she can truly say...I did it My Way.” She will always be “Forever in our Hearts”. She is survived by her five children, Loretta Weygandt of Charleroi, Daniel Phillips of Bentleyville, Thomas Phillips of Belle Vernon, Sandra Gemmell of Smithton and Marlene Kumher of Titusville, FL. Theresa was the last surviving member of 11 children; she had 11 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Due to the recent health crisis there will be no public viewing. Services and interment will be private.
