Theresa M. Pietrzak
June 04, 1947 ‒ March 19, 2020
Theresa M. Pietrzak passed away peacefully Thursday morning, March 19, 2020 in her home surrounded by her family. She was 72.
She was born June 4, 1947 to parents Joseph & Lilly (Harris) Mandich in Dayton, Ohio. After Theresa graduated from Jefferson High School with the class of 1965, she began working at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
While working at the base she met Paul Pietrzak, whom she mistook as the mail boy, but who was actually her boss. One day Paul asked how he could repay Theresa a favor he owed her, and her reply being that she takes him on a date to the drive-in movie theater and buys her a box of chocolates, the rest is history. On June 24, 1967, the pair married and they spent 52 wonderful years together.
Later Theresa and Paul retired to Loudonville in 1997 and loved to go to restaurants all around the area for breakfast every morning. They were so familiar with the area restaurants that they knew all the employees and their families. They also could be seen at all local fairs and festivals. Theresa’s paradise was their 14-acre homestead outside of Loudonville, where she had much love for her birds and plants.
She is survived by her husband Paul Pietrzak; sons John Pietrzak, Robert Pietrzak, and Adam (Aimee) Pietrzak; four grandchildren Jackson, Preston, Lillian, and Evelyn; her siblings Paul (Cienzie) Mandich, Tony Mandich, Sam (Lori) Mandich, Steve (Peggy) Mandich, Chris (Vicki) Mandich, Tom (Shelly) Mandich, Fred (Trish) Mandich, and Mary Mandich; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to parents, she was preceded in death by her brother Joe Mandich, and nephew Brian Mandich.
Although no public service will be held in Theresa’s memory, her family hopes that you will hold her in your heart as you remember her in your own special way. A family scattering ceremony will take place in June.
