Natalie (Talie) Lubiniecki

MEADVILLE — Natalie (Talie) Lubiniecki, 93, passed away at her home in Meadville on Friday, Jan. 10, 2014, surrounded by her family.

She was born on July 12, 1920, on a farm in Colebrook, Ohio, the daughter of Nick and Mary Masiglowa. She was one of four daughters, but she always said that she worked on the farm like the son her father never had.

On Nov.10, 1946, Talie married the love of her life, Walter Lubiniecki, and moved to Meadville, where they had four children. In 2004, he preceded her in death.

Talie was a loving, kind, humble, soft- spoken woman who loved her Creator, her family, her friends and all animals. She enjoyed being outdoors, either working in her garden, raking leaves or just sitting on her porch. She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1955 and spent many hours teaching others about the Bible and her God, Jehovah. She was known in the congregation as being faithful, loyal and a really good cook! Many still talk about her hospitality.

She is survived by three of her four children, Sandra Lubiniecki, Walter Lubiniecki and his wife, Sherry, and Mark Lubiniecki and his wife, Patricia, all of Meadville.

Her daughter, Juanita (Neni) Lubiniecki, preceded her in death in 2005. She has one surviving sister, Olga Pleichner of Willoughby, Ohio. Two sisters, Ann Masiglowa and Jean Galysh, are both deceased. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews and friends who will miss her very much.

There will be a memorial service at the Meadville Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 15315 Harmonsburg Road, Meadville, on Saturday at 1 p.m.

The family requests, in lieu of flowers, that memorials be made to “Watchtower,” c/o Sandra Lubiniecki at 17045 Cussewago Road, Meadville, Pa. 16335.

Arrangements are under the direction of Hathaway-Tedesco Funeral Home and Crematory, 614 Baldwin St., Meadville.
