Gina (Iarussi) Runyan

March 31, 1960 ~ March 16, 2018 (age 57)

"Some people's lives can truly make a difference however long or short their lives are on earth.  They give the gifts of kindness and of caring; they sow the seeds of friendship and self-worth.  Some people's lives are beautiful examples of putting others first; and when they're gone, the lives of those they touched are so much richer, and the love they shared lives on and on."



Age 57, of Cheswick, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family, on Friday, March 16, 2018.

Beloved wife of Randy Runyan; mother of Joseph (Ina) Runyan, Samantha (Joshua) Flanhofer and Jonathan Runyan; proud jammal of Gianna, Noah, and Evelina; sister of Traci Iarussi; daughter of Kitty & Joseph Iarussi.
