Judith Long Obituary

Judith Long, age 79 of Clairton, passed away on Thursday, January 11, 2024 in Jefferson Hospital.  Born October 7, 1944 in Meadowlands, she was a daughter of the late Fred and Margaret (Cholak) Piasante.  A member of Triumph of the Holy Cross Parish (the former St. Paulinus Church), Judith worked as a school bus driver for the Bamford Motor Coach of Duquesne.  She will be remembered as a great mother who always put her family first.  They remember her as always having a forgiving love and for going without so that they could have what they needed and wanted.  When she became a grandmother, Judith was always there with unwavering support in their lives, be it for majorette competitions, football games, parades, or anything.  They will love and miss her always.  Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of thirty years, Melvin W. Long, who passed away April 6, 2021, her son Anthony B. Koontz, who passed away January 21, 2021, and her daughter-in-law Erin Koontz, who passed away January 29, 2016.  Judith is survived by her children Randall (Ruth) Koontz, Jr. of Donora, Christopher (Brenda) Koontz of Mt. Pleasant; and Brian Koontz of Clairton; her grandchildren Krista, Bryson, Taafe, Morgan, and Taylor; her brothers John Piasante of Meadowlands and Joseph (Joyce) Piasante of Washington; nieces and nephews; and her daughter-in-law Nicole Koontz.  Funeral arrangements for Judith are private at the convenience of the family and in the care of the A.J. Bekavac Funeral Home, Clairton.
