Judy Dian Homer, 72, of Vanderbilt, passed away peacefully on Saturday December 28, 2019 surrounded by her loving family in Uniontown Hospital.
She was born November 22, 1947 in Connellsville, a daughter of the late John and Alberta (Robaugh) Fritsky.
She worked as a custodian for the Carnegie Free Library of Connellsville for many years.
She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Connellsville.
To put that she was an avid hunter was an understatement. Dian loved hunting and couldn’t wait for the season to come every year, where she would go out with her whole family. She loved seeing deer wander through her back yard, which would get her excited for the upcoming season when she would get to go out into the woods. In addition to hunting, Dian loved playing bingo and loved scratch-offs.
Dian cherished her family and she was most proud of her grandchildren, who would affectionately call her "Grandma Di". She would flaunt her grandchildren any chance she could get.
Dian is survived by her husband, John David Homer of Vanderbilt; children, Anita Covalesky of Vanderbilt, Dawn Shahan of Mt. Pleasant, Joseph Taylor of Connellsville, Rod Taylor of New Kensington, Deanna Homer-DeBerry of Vanderbilt, Davidean Homer-Van Divner and husband Gene of Grindstone, Tammy Hollis of Connellsville and Dana Watson of Connellsville; grandchildren, Tara (Kerry), Alicia(Delton), Ashley(Barron), Ryan(Mikayla), Joelle, Korie, Robbie, Jolyn, Ridge, James “Dirt”, Chloe, Carrissa, Alison, Junior, Chelsea, Alex, Megan, and Wade; great-grandchildren, Brantley, Easton, Tessa, Talia, Lawrence, Nicholas, Olivia, Carter, Jordyn, Rowan, Nyah, Aliah, Ezekial, and Wade; sisters, Alberta Everitt and Mary Harris and many beloved other family and friends whom she adored and loved.
