She always said, “At least you have one angel”! Now, we really do have an angel.
Rochelle Ann Vozar, 49, earned her wings on Monday, November 04, 2019, while under the care of Good Samaritan Hospice in Beaver PA. She fought valiantly against the many problems caused by an illness that left her paralyzed for the past nine years. Her attitude and determination during this ordeal was an inspiration to all who knew her.
Born March 31, 1970, she was the daughter of Deborah E. Vozar Vensel and the late Andrew J. Vozar III.
Rochelle was a 1988 graduate of Butler Area High School and later earned a degree from Butler County Community College.
She was passionate about music to the delight of the caregivers in Brighton Wellness and Rehabilitation where she was a resident since October 2010, as she would turn up the volume on the weekends for all to enjoy. When she wasn’t working on a Suduko puzzle, she made many beautiful counted cross stitch pictures, sharing them with her loved ones and caregivers.
Rochelle is survived by her mother, Deborah E. Vensel; her step-father, John F. Vensel; her brother, Darren A. Vozar; her sister, Megan A. Miller (Tim); her step-sister, Jennifer L. Jacobson; her step-brother, Matthew J. Vensel (Colin); her maternal grandfather, Kenneth E. Bailey of Oskaloosa KS; a favorite aunt, Margaret Moore; and eight nieces and nephews.
