Obituary

Dorothy J. Boggs, 93, of Greensburg, died Wednesday, February 3, 2021 in RNC of Greater Pittsburgh-Greensburg.  She was born September 6, 1927 in Youngwood, daughter of the late John and Stella (Fox) Morris.  She was one of 14 children.  She was preceded in death by her beloved late husband, Charles E. Boggs; a daughter, Dottie Boggs; sisters, Viola Morris, Helen McGinnis, Margaret Wilson, Ruth Love, and Ida Baker; and brothers, William, Charles, Ronald, and James Richard Morris.  She is survived by three children, Anna M. George and husband, Ronald, of Greensburg, Charles Boggs and wife, Cheryl, of Delmont, and Nancy J. Snyder and husband, William, of Greensburg; two sisters, Lois Prinkey-Clark of Youngwood, and Donna Porterfield of Youngwood; two brothers, Jack Morris of Florida, and Robert Morris and wife, Agnes, of Irwin; five sisters-in-law, Joyce Boggs of Greensburg, Eleanor Morris of Tennessee, Anna Morris of Maryland, Alice Morris of Greensburg, and Clara Morris of Greensburg; 11 cherished grandchildren; nine darling great-grandchildren; and numerous treasured nieces and nephews. Dorothy’s family was the center of her universe and was always a top priority.  She loved spending time with them and particularly enjoyed sitting on the patio swing for a chat, playing cards, or taking a drive to discover new restaurants.  She was an involved and dedicated grandmother; her grandchildren (and many others) lovingly called her “Nanny”. Dorothy was a woman of many talents and interests.  She was well known for her baking, including delicious homemade pies from the apple trees in her yard, delectable breads, nut rolls, lady locks and more.  She spent many days gardening, canning fruits, vegetables, and sauces, knitting, crocheting, and shopping.  She loved her soap operas (“stories”), Wheel of Fortune, Pirates baseball, and Steelers football.  She had an easy laugh, enjoyed making jokes, and stayed active – even mowing her own lawn well into her 80s!  She was a dedicated Christian, enjoyed worshipping at St. Paul Catholic Church in Greensburg, and was a member of the Rosary Altar Society.  She was a courageous cancer survivor who handled the challenges life threw at her with patience, grace, and her signature touch of humor.  She and her family are grateful for the caring staff at RNC and Bridges Hospice for their selfless service.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no public visitation and a private service.  Arrangements are by LEO M.
