ANNOUNCEMENTS

Eric J. Bodish, 62, of Walnutport, passed away on October 5, 2019, in his residence.

Born on September 8, 1957, he was the son of the late Julius A. and Helen (Sommers) Bodish.

Eric was a 1975 graduate of Northampton High School. He furthered his education by attending and graduating from Temple with a bachelor's degree in science and was a 1986 graduate of Milton S. Hershey Medical School.

During his career, he worked as an emergency room doctor in Class 1 trauma centers. He also became director of St. Luke's/Coaldale ER in 2002.

Eric was kind and a compassionate person who had healed countless people. He was everyone's "go-to-guy" and always helped anyone in need. He developed a passion for cultivating cactus plants and began a wholesale business, initially to support his education, supplying numerous greenhouses in the area. He was fun to be around, very funny, like a comedian and always made everyone laugh. He enjoyed attending his daughters' soccer games and was known for throwing his daughters extravagant birthday parties. He was a jack of all trades, and loved farming, woodworking, and anything outdoors. He enjoyed traveling, especially to warm climates like the Southwest, Caribbean, and Mexico. Eric was a man of faith and found a love in helping & healing those in need. He will be truly missed by all who were blessed to know him.

He is survived by wife, Anne E. Von Neida, Walnutport; and two daughters Erika A. and Lauryn A. Bodish, Walnutport. He is also survived by sister, Veronica J. Kremus, Coplay; nephew, Jim, husband of Georgia Kremus; and many loving cousins and friends.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 AM on Friday, October 11, 2019, at St. Peter's RCC, 4 S 5th St, Coplay, PA 18037. A visitation will be held from 9-10:30 AM in the church. Burial will follow at St. Peter's Cemetery, Coplay. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Eric's memory to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Cancer Center c/o the funeral home. Brubaker Funeral Home, Inc., Coplay is entrusted with arrangements. Online condolences may be recorded at www.brubakerfuneralhome.com

I'm so very sorry to have to report that Cathy Cortazzo passed away last week.  Her obituary is in the Morning Call this morning:

Cathy A. Naheiri, 59, of Northampton passed away Thursday, July 27, 2017 at home. Born August 28, 1957 in Northampton, she was the daughter of the late Charles and Anna (Knopf) Cortazzo. Cathy was a hard worker and always made time for her family. She was a wonderful caregiver to her mother, Anna. Cathy loved all animals and rescued as many as she could. She was an avid reader. Survivors: son, Alex Naheiri and fiancé, Bryanna Craft; brothers, Mark Cortazzo and wife, Robin, and Charles Cortazzo and wife, Diane; nephews, Anthony and Kurt Cortazzo; niece, Jamie Sterling. Services: A gathering will be held on Friday, August 4th from 5 - 6:00 p.m. in the Reichel Funeral Home, 326 E. 21st St., Northampton. Online condolences may be submitted at www.reichelfuneralhome.com. Contributions: Memorials may be presented to Peaceable Kingdom, Inc., 1049 MacArthur Road, Whitehall, PA 18052.

I had a thought:  What if all of our fellow KK's listed (where applicable, of course) their hobby or profession, so that in case one of us needs an electrician, plumber, web designer, dog groomer, etc...we could have a list of people we know who we can hire! It would help everyone. Kind of like our own Angie's List! (with no fees!)

So, let me know your thoughts, and if you all would like to do that, I'll make a new page with listings. 

You can message me here, or send an email to jimmyzgurl@gmail.com and let me know.

Thanks!

Lori Shellhammer Reed
