Paula Celesnik Obituary

Paula Jean Celesnik, 53 of Greensburg, spread her wings on February 18, 2024 surrounded by her family. She blessed us with her light on July 13, 1970. Paula or “Pejay” as she was fondly known as, was an incredible and beautiful woman. She will always be remembered for her heart of gold. She was the embodiment of love and care. Pejay was a selfless person and embraced everyone with warmth and kindness, no matter who you were. She was dynamic and creative and loved gardening, cooking and baking, writing poetry, making others laugh, watching the snowfall, dancing, helping others, spending time with her grandchildren, and her dog Snuggles. She was the light of our lives and her spirit will forever remain alive in our hearts. She passes along a legacy of her devotion to treat all with love and compassion. She is an inspiration and a reminder that you can bloom into something so bright and beautiful even in the darkest of places. Pejay will be deeply missed by her survivors, her husband John Burick; her beloved daughter Coree Celesnik and husband Mario Jeffrey; her three grandsons Ignazio, Silvano, and Leonardo who brought her so much happiness; and her sister Wendy Fox. She was reunited with loved ones including her mother Paula (Garland) Celesnik, who she missed dearly. All immediate services private and arrangements entrusted to ASHLEY D. X.
