Burket-Truby Funeral Home of Oakmont

Tomasits, Ruth R.




Ruth R. “Misty” (Bykowski) Tomasits, 78, of Penn Hills (and the South Side) passed away with devoted family by her side on Sunday, December 3, 2017 after a year of optimistically and bravely fighting ovarian cancer. In life, Ruth devoted herself to raising four young children after the passing of her beloved husband. During her professional career as a gift shop/boutique manager, she was always stylish. She had a mischievous sense of humor and enjoyed being the "unofficial mayor", bringing lightness and joy even to those with whom she had casual contact. She was a lover of old movies, especially musicals. She held a special place in her heart for all animals, but was especially dedicated to her dogs and the wild birds (cardinals were her favorite) who visited her birdfeeder. Beloved wife of the late Eugene J. “Chico” Tomasits. Loving mother of Michelle L. “Micki” Tomasits, Lynn A. Tomasits, Darren G. (Beth Ann McClelland) Tomasits, Brian M. (Michele Knapp) Tomasits, and the late Pamela Ann Tomasits. Grandmother of Dana, Kyle, Archer Sebastian, and Alexa Tomasits. Sister of Marlene (the late Thomas) Tush, Roberta (Chuck) Copley, Valerie (Dennis) Fearon, and the late Arthur (the late Ann) Bykowski. She is also survived by a large extended Polish family, faithful neighbors, and her cherished four-legged friend, Savannah. Friends and relatives will be received on Friday, December 8, 2017 from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. at the BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION & ALTERNATIVE SERVICES, INC. 421 Allegheny Ave. Oakmont. Mass of Christian Burial Saturday, December 9, 2017, 10 a.m. Prince of Peace St. Adalbert Parish, 160 South 15th Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15206. EVERYONE MEET DIRECTLY AT CHURCH. Donations may be made in Ruth's name to the Humane Animal Rescue, 6926 Hamilton Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15208.
