Obituary for Regina Pisechko

Regina  Pisechko
Regina Pisechko, of Warrington, PA, died May 3, 2018. She was born in Poland on June 12, 1938 to Stefan and Aleksandra (Olga) Porecki. In 1940, she and her entire family were forced into exile in Siberia by the Soviet Union. After their release from resettlement Gulags in 1942, the Porecki family traveled as refugees through the Middle East, staying briefly in the stables of the Shah of Iran and for a few years in Lebanon, before finally settling in England. At the age of nineteen, she met her husband, Donald E. Pisechko, when he was serving in the US Air Force. He had come specifically to the area looking for the local Polish kielbasa and got more than he was looking for when he spotted the stunning, young Regina at a dance. After they married and moved to Pennsylvania, they raised a family and had a typical American life. Donald, who died too young in 1993, frequently worked several jobs at once to support their growing family and made a comfortable life for them in Warrington, PA. They quickly made friends of neighbors and became devoted parishioners of St. Anne's Ukrainian Catholic Church. After Donald's early death, Regina developed a new independence and she was celebrated by her family for learning to drive in her late 50s. She spent the next 25 years of her life taking care of her family and being a part of the community. Regina was raised in hard times and, as such, could be a frugal and stern woman, but she loved spending time with her family and friends. On weekends and throughout the summers, she could be found making waffle ice cream sandwiches for her many grandchildren and playing canasta and aggravation rummy on the deck. She loved celebrating the holidays as a family and always looked forward to making traditional Polish and Ukrainian baked goods for Christmas and Easter. The women of her local Bible Study group became lifelong friends, sharing spiritual knowledge, celebrating each other's joys, and providing support during times of difficulty. She cherished their friendship, particularly in the last years of her life. Regina enjoyed the simple things in life, like a meal at the Red Lion Diner with family, fresh raspberries on a summer day, and even riding her lawnmower around her yard. She will be missed by those who knew her.

Regina is survived by her six children, Donald Pisechko, Olga Luna, Stephen Pisechko, Ronald Pisechko, Paula Pisechko, and Robert Pisechko; daughters-in-law Cheryl Pisechko, Amy Pisechko, Kathy Pisechko, and Jill Pisechko; son-in-law Hector Luna; as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
