Shelva Jean Kiddy, 84, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on September 12, 2021, at Concordia at Villa Saint Joseph. She was born July 21, 1937, and grew up in Lonaconing, MD, the daughter of John and Nan Wilson.
Shelva graduated from Valley High School, class of 1955. Following graduation she married her husband, Marvin Kiddy, and they settled in Beaver County to raise their family. Shelva was an avid bowler during her prime and she participated in the Women’s Bowling Championship of Pittsburgh and Bowling for Dollars. Shelva retired from Pittsburgh International Airport after working there for over 20 years, which was less than the amount of Beanie Babies she collected from the airport shops while she was there.
Shelva was spunky, quick-witted, and always made people laugh. She loved attending social events, shopping and always finding the perfect gift for everyone. There was never a family gathering she would miss as her family was her whole world. Shelva was a people person and loved talking to everyone who crossed her path. She will be missed dearly by all those who loved her, and her family will forever cherish all the memories they have of her.
In addition to her parents, Shelva was predeceased by her husband Marvin of 26 years. She is survived by her brother John Wilson (Carole) of Lonaconing, MD, her three children, daughters, Karen Manolovich (Rade) of Economy Borough and Cheryl Marchionda (Dominick) of Grand Lake, CO and her son Kevin Kiddy of Ambridge; five grandchildren, Tina Yurkovac (Steve), Brian Kowalski, Ian Marchionda, Kristyn Kiddy and Connor Marchionda, and three great-grandchildren, Brody Yurkovac, Bella Yurkovac and Kash Kowalski; and last but certainly not least, her life-long companion Mike Spuganich who cared for her for so many years.
Special thanks to all the staff, nurses, and aides at the Villa for the special care and prayers as well as all of her friends.
Friends will be received Wednesday September 15,2021 from 4-8 pm at Bohn Matich Funeral & Cremation Services,Inc, 1099 Maplewood Ave., Ambridge, where a service will be held Thursday September 16,2021 at 10:00am, with Rev Bert Domineck, officiating. Interment will follow at Sylvania Hills Memorial Park, Rochester. Shelva’s favorite color was pink so if you choose to send flowers, let’s surround her with the color she loves.
