Constance Balsis Obituary

Constance Louise (Benes) Balsis

 

After a brave, brutal, and, gratefully brief, battle with cancer, Connie, 80, of Bethel Park, Pa., went home to be with God.  She followed her parents, Francis and Mary (Tevelonis) Benes, her only sibling, Carol Beatty, dear cousins, Lois Walker and Cindy Farster, who were more like sisters, and son-in-law, Joe Bongiorno. Survived by her beloved spouse of 59 years, William “Bill”, daughters Cheryl (Dave) Cannon, Kim (Scott Carlisle) Bongiorno, Debbie (Dan) Gasbarro, brother-in-law Bill Beatty, adored grandchildren - Christopher Cannon, Nick Gasbarro, Nicholas Bongiorno, Sarah Cannon, and Andrew Bongiorno. Also survived by nephew, nieces, great-nephews, cousins, and friends. Graduate of Vandergrift High School, Class of 1960 and Duff’s Business Institute. She worked at PPG prior to becoming a dedicated mother and homemaker. Connie had an extraordinary green thumb and loved to beat anyone at Scrabble. A great cook, she was known by her grandchildren as the grilled cheese master, and her baked beans were not to be missed. Lover of Beatrix Potter, Celine Dion, Josh Groban, musicals, Phipps Conservatory, and Longwood Gardens. The Hallmark channel  and Hallmark stores will miss her dedication. Viewing at Paul Henney Funeral Home; 5570 Library Road; BP PA 15102 on   Monday, July 17, 2023 from 2-4 and 6-8. Mass of Christian burial at St Valentine’s Church; Bethel Park Tuesday, July 18, 2023 at  10 :00 AM.
