Obituary

Margaret "Margie" (Gasparovic) Snodgrass, age 80 of Pittsburgh and originally of McKeesport, passed away January 9, 2023 after a brief but courageous battle with an illness.  She is the loving wife of 45 years of John; loving mother and proud mom of Dr. Steven (Kelly) of Greenville, SC and Christopher (Anna) of Swissvale; devoted grandmother of Simon; and beloved Aunt Margie to many special nieces and nephews.  A graduate of McKeesport High School who also attended Carlow University, Margie worked for many years as a meticulously organized professional secretary, most notably for Westinghouse Electric Corp. during the 1970s.  She alternated her career with time as a stay-at-home mom, frequent volunteer at Sacred Heart Elementary School, a eucharistic minister and active parishioner at Sacred Heart Church in Shadyside and later a parishioner at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Point Breeze.  She was a pious woman of devout Catholic faith and proud Croatian heritage.  Margie enjoyed volunteer work for many organizations, especially Childrens Hospital, Ladies of Charity, the Central Catholic High School Mothers Guild, and was selected as a volunteer Christmas decorator at the White House in 2011.  She was well known for her incredibly caring, kind, and giving spirit.  Margie was the daughter of the late Mate' and Anna (Stimac) Gasparovic.  The youngest and last of seven in a close-knit immigrant family, she was preceded in death by her siblings John, Ann, Mary, Matthew (Mary), Thomas, and Steve "Snaps" Gasparovic.  Friends will be received in the Daniel F. Bekavac Funeral Home and Crematory, Versailles, on Thursday, January 12, 2023 from 2 PM to 4 PM and 6 PM to 8 PM.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, January 13, 2023 in Sacred Heart Church, 310 Shady Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15206.  If attending the Mass on Friday, please go directly to the church.  Interment will follow privately at Sacred Heart Cemetery, Port Vue.  Memorial contributions in Margie's name have been suggested to either the Ladies of Charity of St. Joseph the Worker Parish, 2001 Ardmore Blvd., Pittsburgh, PA 15221 or to the Croatian Fraternal Union Scholarship Fund, 100 Delaney Dr., Pittsburgh, PA 15235.
