Martha A. "Marti" Sekura, 85, of Cameron, WV passed on peacefully at home, to be with her Lord Jesus on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. She was born on September 23, 1935 to the late Charles and Nancy Strogish of Muse, PA.
She was a 1953 graduate of Cecil High School and worked for several years at the Canonsburg Borough Building as a tax office secretary and in sales at S.A.Meyers Jewelers. In later years she started a small business, "Marti's Perogies and Nutrolls" making everything from scratch, while working at the Meadowlands PA Holiday Inn in the housekeeping department. A Pentecostal Christian by faith, she was a longtime member, along with her three children, of the former Calvary Temple in Washington PA and a regular attendee at Central Assembly of God, South Canonsburg Christian Church, The Lighthouse, Belmont Christian Church and Grace Baptist Church. When her disability overtook her physically and she went into a nursing facility, she continued to fuel her faith with Bible studies and Sunday services there. Marti enjoyed walking for health, bingo , polka dancing, and loved to sing, especially to gospel music and collected Jimmy Swaggart vinyl albums in its entirety.
Marti eventually moved to Cameron WV, to live with her daughter when the pandemic prevented visitors. There she spent 7 months in the loving care of her daughter, Lisa A Miller who survives to cherish her memory. Also surviving are two sons, George M. (Rhonda) Sekura of Pittsburgh PA, and Charles B. Sekura of Strabane PA; sisters Katherine Eisenbarth, Helen(Leonard) Churilla, Nancy Wasnik, Irene(Donald) Andree, and Rose (Michael) Whitco and several devoted nieces and nephews.
Deceased is a grandson, Luis E.Torres, four brothers John, Michael, William and Nicholas Strogish; two sisters, Mary Panchura and Anne McDonough. Also deceased are nephews Daniel, Scott, and Mark Panchura, Chester Aaron Wasnik, Michael Strogish, and niece Irene Hesse.
