Pauline E. Sotak, 95, passed away peacefully August 3, 2019. She was born in McKeesport, PA, and had been a resident of the Kenmore area for over 80 years.
She was a graduate of Kenmore High School, class of 1941 and a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Pauline retired from Polsky's Department Store in 1978.
She was proud of her Slovak heritage and will be remembered for her love of baking nut rolls and traditional Slovak dishes. Pauline enjoyed feeding and watching the birds in her backyard, especially the cardinals. Whenever we see a cardinal, we will always think of mom.

Sotak; brothers, John, Joseph, Michael and Pete Hasso; sister, Anna McDowell; she leaves to cherish her memory, sons, Michael (Barbara) and Paul (Jenifer) Sotak; grandchildren, Amanda (Jason) Greathouse, Meghan and Andy Sotak; great grandchildren, Gavin and Gianna Greathouse.
