Katherine (Katsie) Zoppelt Radovich, 91 passed away on August 30, 2020 after a long, full life filled with unwavering faith, love and laughter.
Born April 11, 1929 in Monaca, she was the daughter of the late Andrew and Mary Krestel Zoppelt. She was a loving wife of nearly 60 years to the late Pastor Nicholas Radovich. Their example of their marriage and ministry live in the hearts of those they served and loved.
She was well known for her musical ministry. She was the choir director and song leader while her husband led the ministry at Wildwood Chapel in Hopewell. She held many Bible studies and was a mentor to young women; she ministered to the women inmates at the Beaver County Jail and many remember her to this day. She loved to have people involved in the music ministry and wrote and directed several musicals. No one was able to tell her no when she asked them to participate in the musicals whether it was building sets, playing in the orchestra, singing or sewing and wearing costumes. She had a sweet, but persuasive spirit. If you were cold, she would give you warm clothing; if you were hungry, she would supply food; if you needed a home, she would find you a bed, even if she had to put you up in her basement. She personally cared for a myriad of elderly people, including her parents. She was God’s definition of a godly woman with a servant’s heart.
She will be sadly missed by her daughters Marianne (Michael) Felouzis of Monaca and Sally Radovich of Virginia; brother, Andrew (Celine) Zoppelt of Florida and sister, Sally Maybray of Beaver; brother-in-law Mitch (Ruth) Radovich of Monaca, and sister in law Darlene Johns of Hopewell Township; grandchildren Michael (Kristi) Felouzis of Virginia; Jonathan (Gina) Felouzis of New Brighton, Christina (Shawn) Meyer of Beaver, Nick (Josh) Rossi of Altoona; great grandchildren Jonathan and Alexander Felouzis, Calista and Chloe Meyer; and many nieces and nephews who loved her with all their hearts.
Along with her parents, her husband and his parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Dorothy Anderson and brothers James and John Zoppelt, brothers-in-law George and Paul Radovich; John Hribar, Bill Maybray and Victor Anderson; her sisters-in-law Julia Ann Zoppelt, Diane Hribar, Dorothy Radovich.
Friends will be received on Saturday, September 5, 2020 from 2:00 until the time of service at 4:00 pm in Simpson Funeral & Cremation Services, 1119 Washington Avenue, Monaca. Interment will be in Sylvania Hills Memorial Park, Rochester.
The family wishes to thank the associates of Cambridge Village for their kindness and care of Katsie.
