May 7, 1930 ~ December 19, 2023 (age 93) 93 Years Old
Age 93 of Greenfield(Pittsburgh) entered into eternal life peacefully surrounded by her family and loved ones on December 19, 2023. Born in Pittsburgh on May 7, 1930 to the late Aloysius and Matilda(King) Guthrie, “Pat” graduated from St. Rosalia’s High School in 1949. Soon after graduation she married her since departed and beloved husband of almost 50 years James Jennings SR. She is survived by her loving children Judy Phillips, Lynn Pesta(Ted), Michael SR(Vicki Lynn), James(Happy) JR (Susan), Joseph (Elizabeth), Sheila Fortes (Jim). She also will be forever missed and cherished by her sister-in-law Maria Guthrie and 30 grand, great grand, and great-great grandchildren. In addition to her loving husband James SR, she was preceded in passing by her youngest daughter Alicia(Sunny) Carney, her granddaughter Christie Majoy, her son-in-law Ray Phillips SR and her brother Dennis Guthrie.
Pat was an exceptionally talented seamstress working at two iconic Pittsburgh retailers for decades, Kaufmann’s and then Florence Sheer. But for anyone who knew her, it was spending time with her big Irish family that she truly enjoyed the most. Every birthday and holiday was a reason to be under one roof on McCaslin Street and celebrate as one the joys of that occasion. Over the decades she always made it a point to attend her kids and then her grandkids various athletic games and/or events. She was indeed the matriarch of the Jennings clan in every sense of the word.
Family and friends will be received on Wednesday December 27th from 2-8 p.m. in the Edward P. Kanai Funeral Home 500 Greenfield Ave, Pittsburgh. A Funeral Mass will be held at 10 AM on Thursday December 28th, at St Rosalia’s Catholic Church 411 Greenfield Ave with internment to follow immediately at Calvary Cemetery
