Virginia Evanchak, age 93, of Liberty Borough, died at home on February 24, 2024.  Born July 1, 1930, in McKeesport, she was the daughter of the late George "Huck" Kiehl and Mabel (Lukehart) Kiehl and wife of the late Robert Evanchak.  Virginia was a member of the former Good Samaritan Church in Liberty Borough, where she volunteered as a Sunday School Teacher. 
Virginia was known for her passion for card games, spending countless hours playing solitaire and especially 500 with her family.  Her skill and laughter during these games will be dearly missed.  Her talents extended to the kitchen, where she delighted everyone with her delicious homemade baked goods, including legendary pumpkin pies made from pumpkins grown in her garden.  Even her grandson's friends eagerly anticipated a taste of her pumpkin pie.

Virginia is survived by her children, David, Bonnie, and Douglas Evanchak; a grandson, Patrick (Stacey Matson) Murphy; great-grandson, Kade Murphy; brother, Charles (Sue) Kiehl; nephews, Michael and Chris Kiehl; niece, Claudia Kirk.  In addition to her parents and husband, she was also preceded in death by a son, Bobby Evanchak, and a brother, John Kiehl.  The family would like to thank caregiver Valarie Ringer and John and Cathy Whitehead for all of their love and support, and Uncle Chuckie and Aunt Sue for your wisdom and guidance.  Arrangements were entrusted to Willig Funeral Home & Crematory.  Condolences and memories may be shared at
Charles Danforth, Supervisor
