Margaret A. Mehallic Tomechko

Margaret A. Mehallic Tomechko, age 96, of Leonardtown, MD, (formerly of Uniontown, PA) passed away Friday, January 5, 2024 at St. Mary’s Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. She was born August 9, 1927 in Uniontown, daughter of the late Samuel Mehallic and Mary Rusnick Mehallic. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Freddie Schreckengost; second husband, John T. Tomechko; daughter, Sharon Hall; brothers, Mike Mehallic, John Mehallic, Joseph Mehallic, Steve Mehallic, Samuel Mehallic, Andrew Mehallic, and Robert Mehallic; sisters, Vera Dzamba and Mary Cunningham; and nieces Marlene Culp and Kathy Mehallic.

Margaret was a 1946 graduate of North Union High School. She was a long-time member of St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church where she enjoyed going to mass on Saturday evenings with her family. She was a caring, devoted wife and loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister and friend.

Margaret held various jobs in her life including, but not limited to, working in a bakery, a pharmacy, Metzler’s Department store and even a fireworks factory. Evolving from her love of cleaning and keeping things neat and orderly, she started her own cleaning service in the 1980’s. The greatest joy in Margaret’s life was her family and home. She took great pride in caring for others and often opened her home to family members and friends. Spoiling her grandchildren and providing family and friends with hospitality, love and delicious home cooked meals is how she will be remembered by those closest to her.

Tomechko, wife Jennifer Young-Tomechko and granddaughter, Olivia Tomechko of Leonardtown, MD; son-in-law, Larry Hall, grandsons, Christopher Hall, Brent Hall, Adam Hall, all of West Virginia; great-grandsons, Payton Hall, Andrew Hall and Parker Hall all of West Virginia; several nieces and nephews, including Placeda Hall (CT), Dee Bove (OH), Tracy Otero (OH), Mary Francis Kapencinski (CA), James Hanabeck (PA) and Steven Mehallic (OH) and many other great-nieces and great-nephews.
