Kathy (Pontious) Przyborowski

June 9, 1955 ~ April 26, 2022 (age 66)


Kathy Przyborowski (née Wilma Kathleen Pontious) passed away on Tuesday, April 26, 2022, at the Butler Memorial Hospital, surrounded by her loving family. 

She was born in Pittsburgh, PA on June 9, 1955, to the late William and Hazel (Dale) Pontious and grew up in Kittanning, PA. 

After graduating from Kittanning High School in 1973, Kathy moved to New Jersey and started a long and successful career at Subaru of America, Inc. in Camden, NJ, where she managed the national parts system before her retirement in 2019. Kathy recently had relocated to Saxonburg, PA.

Kathy blessed many with her love, generosity, and zest for life. Always the life of the party and ready to befriend all she met, Kathy married her soulmate, the late Hank Przyborowski, in 1989 and settled in Glassboro, NJ. They loved the beach and spent many happy times on the Jersey Shore and at Emerald Isle, NC. She adored her dogs, Cyd and Blaze, and cat, Calvin. Kathy will be remembered by all for her non-stop conversation and infectious laugh. She deeply loved her friends and family, those from Kittanning and those in New Jersey, and will be greatly missed. 

Kathy is survived by her sisters Deborah Blose of Saxonburg, Karen Gunderson (Ken) of Lancaster, PA, Carol Pontious of Kittanning, and Davida van Mook (Gary) of Saxonburg, sister-in-law Julia Przyborowski of Philadelphia, PA, her nieces Louise van Mook and Julia van Mook, and nephews John Hribovski  (Geri), Tucker Blose (Michelle), William Gunderson (Julie), Stephen Gunderson (Lindsey), and Alexander van Mook, as well as great nieces and nephews and dear friends Rita and Roland Piccioni and their family. 

Her spirit, joy, and talents will be celebrated at a memorial service on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at 2:00 pm at Fox Funeral Home in Saxonburg.
