RECENT OBITUARIES

Maust, Karen
Karen Marie Maust, formerly of Uniontown, now of Conemaugh, went home to be with her precious Savior on July 10, 2024. Her husband dear Roland of 50 years was by her side. Eldest daughter of Arthur and Jennie Lee Essig of Massillon, Ohio, she was a 1972 Jackson High School graduate, and attended Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. A lifelong scholar, she served as librarian at both graduate and public levels. She loved sharing God’s Word. A masterful teacher, she skillfully led many women into a deeper understanding of the Bible. Whether in small groups or in settings of over 100 ladies, she had a rare ability to open up the Word of God. Another passion was ministering side-by-side with her husband. Whether teaching pastors’ wives in the Central African Republic, helping restart a church on the Aleutian Island of Akutan, or else recording camper salvation decisions in her “Lamb’s Book of Life” register, she was fervently committed to serving the Lord. The Mausts were in the process of relocating to radio station KCAM in Glennallen, Alaska, as radio missionaries when God called her home. Finally, she was a passionate wife and mother. Under her care, her three sons grew into pillars of their communities, serving as director of paramedic care (Russell), an Arctic Barnabas pilot (Jason), and a chef (Brian). And she faithfully stood by her husband from his days as a security guard to becoming a longtime pastor and an award-winning radio broadcaster involved in international ministry. She’s survived by her husband Roland of Conemaugh and three sons: Russell (Chrissy) of Kelley’s Island, Ohio; Jason (Anita) of Kenai, Alaska; and Brian (Charlotte) of Kelley’s Island. Her grandchildren include Kaitlyn Maust, Caleb Maust, Christopher Maust, and Jacey Tong. And grandson Corban Maust (Karissa) expects great-granddaughter Eden Rose Maust’s imminent arrival. Also surviving her are siblings Karlene Bowen, Jay Essig, Lori Devin, Kevin Essig, Wendy Andriotis, and Aaron Essig, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Two memorial services will be held, the 1st at the Conemaugh Grace Brethren Church, corner of Oak and 2nd Street, Conemaugh, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, July 21 at 4:00 PM.

Crocetti
Kathleen “Kathy” (Clark-Wingrove) Crocetti peacefully went home to heaven on July 8, 2024 surrounded by loved ones. The day before her homecoming Kathy had the most wonderful day celebrating her life with all of her family. She was overjoyed by the outpouring of love and admiration for her and her beautiful influence on so many. She was at complete peace when her Father in Heaven came to take her home.
Kathy poured her whole heart and all her love into her 6 most beloved children- April Wingrove, Crystal Britt (Tommy), Amber Stout (John), her precious baby girl Nicole Lynn (passed away at 4 days old), Clark J. Wingrove (Victoria) and Dawn Williams (Jerrod). We will forever cherish every laugh, every tear and every moment. Life wasn’t easy on our mom however we always had what we needed and never really knew the fullness of the hardships because of her great love for us that covered it all. Her nurturing soul, radiant passion for Jesus, unceasing, powerful prayers and encouraging words will forever live on in all of our hearts. Her 13 grandchildren- Kylie, Korie, Taia, Jacob, Gwen, Mia, Hank, Louden, Nathan, Tanner, Ariona, Blake and Skylah (her “baker’s dozen”) will keep her very near and dear to their hearts. They will always remember and be inspired by their grandma’s great faith. She was also blessed with beautiful great grandbabies- Jace, Ryleigh, Charlie, Olivia, Jacob, Sophie and Karsynn.
Kathy Jo was born to her adored parents, Cyrus and Doris (Moyer) Clark on August 11, 1959 which have both preceded her in death along with her cherished stepmother Annie and her loved brother Ricky (Sandy). Kathy is survived by her loved siblings- Patricia Stawovy (David), David Clark (Coleen), Jody Clark (Brenda) and Sheryl Clark who all loved her abundantly along with many nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Kathy’s light and love for Jesus has inspired many. She was kind to all who crossed her path and it surely wasn’t long upon meeting her that they knew where her HOPE and JOY was found. Our beloved mommy would want all who knew her and all who are reading this to put their full faith on Jesus Christ, her Lord and Savior. She would tell you of God’s great, great love for you demonstrated on the Cross of Jesus and that nothing you have ever done is too big or too bad to receive that great love. She would tell you that Jesus has been her everything and He has brought her through so much filling her with immense peace, hope and joy all along the way. She would implore you to reach out to Him in your time of need and she would promise you that He will be right there. He is her everything and she is with Him now in glory. Allow Him to be your everything.
Kathy will be profoundly missed but her love and light will continue to guide and inspire all who were blessed to know her. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord! Oh, the wonders her eyes see and the praise her ears hear and what her heart is conceiving is beyond anything we can imagine. We should all be jealous and wait with great, excited anticipation for our own homecoming and reunion with her. Praise You Lord!
Kathy’s family and friends will be celebrating her life with a special gathering. Your continued prayers are greatly felt and appreciated.
