Lola Procovich, age 79, of New Brighton, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 22, 2018, surrounded by her loving family at Good Samaritan Hospice. Born September 7, 1938, in Rochester, she was the daughter of the late Freda Cleek Roush and Guy W. Roush.

Lola was a wonderful cook and baker and her nutrolls will be missed by many. She enjoyed many hobbies over the years, including painting ceramics, making hand-made ornaments and furnishing her dollhouse. She loved going to miniature shows and enjoyed that hobby for a long time. Among her favorite memories were the many trips she took with her friends in her big van with her in the driver seat. She was most known for her beautiful holiday decorations and for years she started with her Halloween tree, then into Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter and then would finally pack it away until time to start over again. She and Steve enjoyed going out for a Sunday drive, stopping to watch the boats at one of the local lakes. Lola was the biggest Pittsburgh Penguins fan and just hated when one of those mean players from the other team hit "her Sid."
She will be greatly missed by her family and many friends, especially her best friend of 72 years, Parge Dinsmore and her longtime friend, Betty Margetic.
Her family would like to thank Drs. Carl Sestito and Maurice Prendergast for the care you have given to her over the years. Also, the entire group of doctors that cared for her this stay at Heritage Valley. The Critical Care staff gave exceptional care and compassion to her and us and we are forever grateful and to Good Samaritan Hospice for their kindness.
As per her wishes, there will be no visitation or services.
