Sandra Sue (Tutitch) Howell, 72, of Connellsville (Dunbar Twp), passed away peacefully on Wednesday December 13, 2023 with her loving family by her side at Harmon House, Mt. Pleasant.

She was born September 6, 1951 in Connellsville, a daughter of the late Paul and Julia (Massanova) Tutich.

She was a longtime member of St. Rita R.C. Church, Connellsville.

She was employed through South Connellsville Personal Care Home as a CNA for many years until her retirement.

Sandra enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her beloved grandchildren and her grandpuppy, Jett. Jett would visit his grandma often and loved visiting her so he could get his Cheerio treats.

Sandra will be missed deeply by her family and friends, but she is now free from pain, discomfort and suffering from her illness and she can now rest peacefully.

Sandra is survived by her daughter, Melanie D. Klepsky and her husband Troy of Scottdale; her grandchildren, Anthony Stewart, Emily Stewart, and Christopher Stewart, all of Scottdale; her grandpuppy, Jett; her 3 sisters, Paulette Berdan and husband Derek of Uniontown, Theresa Guess and husband James of WV and Rose Cunningham and her husband Ron of OH and numerous nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews.

In addition to her parents, Sandra was preceded in death by her son, Donald W. Howell ( May, 11, 2008).

Family and friends will be received in the PAUL G. FINK FUNERAL HOME, INC. 418 North Pittsburgh Street Connellsville, PA 15425 on Saturday from 2pm until the hour of the Blessing Service at 7pm with Fr. Edwin Rubido as Celebrant.
