Vera Jean Girman Obituary

 A lifelong resident of North Braddock and a 1960 graduate of North Braddock Scott High, passed away Friday, January 26, 2024, surrounded by her loving family.  She was the daughter of the late Michael and Jean Dzura and is survived by her devoted husband of 62 years, Ralph Girman.   She is also survived by her beautiful daughters Cheryl (Brian) Zagorac of Penn Township and Christine (James) Hinel of Florida;   brothers Michael “Mickey” (Arlene) Dzura, Jerry (late Christel) Simpson, and Jack (late Roseann)  Simpson.

Vera was the loving and beloved grandmother of Alyssa (Kyle) Southerlin; Brian (Kristen) Zagorac Jr; Austin (Christie) Zagorac; Erica (Eric) Green; and James (Nicole) Hinel Jr.  She will be greatly missed by her treasured great-grandchildren, Grace, Isla, and Weston and was greatly anticipating the arrival of her fourth great-grandchild.

Vera worked as a teller at Mellon/Citizens Bank at the Forest Hills and Pitcairn branches and also as a caterer throughout most of her adult life.  Her most prominent role was as Matriarch of the family, happiest at family gatherings where she provided the most delicious kolaczki and nut roll. 

Vera lived a wonderful life, adored by her family.  Her smile was beautiful and contagious, her love for her family limitless. She will be greatly missed but forever remembered by the many who loved her.
