Karen Wojtiw Obituary

Karen passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on February 14, 2024, at the young age of 49, after a long battle of health issues. She was born September 23, 1974, to Daniel and Anne Marie Young McCarthy and raised in Fishtown. She attended Immaculate Conception elementary and went on the St. Michael's Business School.

To say that Karen made an impact on the people around her is understatement. Karen was the type of person to give the shirt off her back and check in the next day with a wardrobe. She was so ready to help lend a hand or give an ear to bend. If you needed someone to talk to, she was there willing and ready, a real "what's wrong, I'm on my way" person. She could be party ready, shopping ready or couch ready for a movie marathon on a rainy (hungover day). She's made so many memories with so many people to sum up her life in one paragraph just wouldn't do her justice, we would need a library to write the life of Karen. (To give a few memories, one of her best moments). We will always carry the memory of her in our hearts.

In addition to her parents, she leaves behind her beloved husband Jonathan Wojtiw, her loving children Alaina Wojtiw (Michael Orlando), Jon Jon Wojtiw (Cierra Adams), Aaron McGinley and Riley Wojtiw. Dear sister of Daniel McCarthy (Jessica) and Nancy Comerford (Mike). Cherished Grandmother of Juliana, Michael and Cole.  Dearest aunt of Johnathan, Daniel, Lucas and Noah McCarthy and Claire and Nora Comerford, Alex Feschuk and Joey Wojtiw.   Sadly missed by her many great nieces and great nephews and dear friends.  

Relatives and friends are invited to her viewing and funeral on Monday February 19, 2024 beginning at 9:30 AM followed by her Funeral Service at 11 AM in the McELVARR FUNERAL HOME, 1415-17 East Susquehanna Avenue Fishtown.
