Victoria Dolores (Burello) Pinkovsky, 85, of West Mifflin, Passed away peacefully on September 22, 2021 in Jefferson Regional Medical Center. Born on September 16, 1936 in Pittsburgh, she was the daughter of the late Geissele "Joseph" and Teresa (Ruffa) Burello. Mrs. Pinkovsky was a homemaker and devout Catholic as a member of St. Thomas the Apostle Church. Her faith sustained her in difficult times, Vicky was a cancer survivor. Vicky was preceded in death by her parents and beloved husband, John R. Pinkovsky and a brother, Joseph Burello. She is survived by her loving children Anthony (Betty) Pinkovsky, Theresa (Jim) Popa, and John (Romy) Pinkovsky; six adoring grandchildren Jimmy, Abbey (Jake), Joey, A J, Victoria, and Andy, and her sister Rose Staropoli. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy. After her husband passed away, her grandchildren kept her busy, active and helped her out immensely. Vicky (grandma) was very appreciative of them all. Vicky would often tell stories of her childhood, remembering the good and bad times of her Italian up-bringing. Her father was the staple of the family, immigrating from Italy and working hard all his life to provide for his family. Vicky was a very kind and giving person. She enjoyed spending time with her girlfriends. They would sit around talking, and enjoying good food at the Westwood Golf Course. She also enjoyed her nightly 7pm phone calls with her sister Rose. A bond that lasted a lifetime. Mom will be sorely missed by her daughter Theresa, and granddaughter Abbey. They were her constant companions, friends, and care givers. Vicky would not want you to mourn her passing. She would want you to celebrate a long and prosperous life, and to keep your faith in a higher power.
Family and friends will be received in the William S. Skovranko Memorial Home, Inc., 828 Richford Street Duquesne, on Friday, September 24, 2021 from 2 o'clock until a blessing service at 5:45 P.M. with Rev. Michael Conway officiating.
