Eleanor “Bubba” Zapach Beregi, age 88 of Star Junction, Pa passed away on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 at her home. She was born on September 21, 1933 in Star Junction, a daughter of George and Anna Zapach.
In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her siblings: John, George, Frank, Edward, Michael, Irene, & Helen; niece, Pamela Sue Posvech; nephew, Juan Fernandez.
Eleanor is survived by her son, David Alan Beregi and his wife, Diane; granddaughter, Stephanie Lauren Beregi and her boyfriend, Dave Behary; sister, Madeline Zapach Posvech; special great nephew & niece, John & Elizabeth Fernandez; faithful fur baby, Teddy.
She was a hard worker & was a jack-of-all trades; working more than one job at times. She most recently worked at Anchor Hocking as a factory worker for many years before she retired. She was a member at St. Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church.
“Bubba” was known for her delicious baked goods & enjoyed sharing them with family, neighbors, & friends. She was an avid polka dancer in her younger days & when dancing became harder in her later days, she would listen to them on the radio every Saturday morning.
She liked doing word searches as well as playing cards with anyone who visited.
She created beautiful quilts - sewn all by hand, never a machine, & added love in every stitch.
Bubba was one of a kind; always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need & was always willing to give your her honest advice/opinion. She loved to be outside when it was warm & was very proud of the roses that bloomed beautifully around her house every spring.
She had so many funny sayings, songs, & stories she’d often tell.
Our words to those who didn’t know her, will never be enough to explain/describe what she meant to her family. She will be greatly missed especially by her son, daughter-in-law, & granddaughter.
Eleanor’s family will receive friends from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, February 18, 2022 at the Blair-Lowther Funeral Home & Crematory, 305 Rear Independence Street, Perryopolis, Pa. A Funeral Mass will take place at 10:00 a.m. Saturday February 19, 2022 at St. Nicholas Byzantine Catholic Church, Perryopolis, Pa with Father Oleh Seremchuk celebrant.
Interment will follow in St. Nicholas Cemetery, Perryopolis, Pa
