Florence M. Stimak, 92, of Monessen, died Monday Feb. 1, 2021 in Hallsworth House. She was born on November 12, 1928 in Monessen, the daughter of the late Nicholas and Veronica (Molasky) Handres. Florence was a life long resident of Monessen and a member of Epiphany of Our Lord Church and its Epiphany Ladies. She was also a member of the former St. Cajetan Rosary Altar Society and Friends of Monessen Public Library. Florence enjoyed volunteering and was always helping out in any way she could. She was known as the "ticket lady" helping many organizations raise money through ticket raffles. She was a selfless person, more concerned about others than herself. She played cards with her card club friends and was a very good baker of pizzelles and nut rolls. Florence worked at home as a seamstress and at election time worked at the former Monessen High School precinct polling site. Surviving are her two daughters, Mary Valeria "Tootsie" Stefanick of Wellington, OH, Eleanor J. (John) McDonough of Fairhope; son, John C. (Florencia) Stimak of Rostraver Twp.; granddaughter, Erin Michelle (Michael) Ferguson of Elizabeth; a great-granddaughter, Olivia Ferguson; and by numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Charlie Stimak, a brother Anthony Handres, and a sister Eleanor Ravenhill.
