Ruth "Sandy" Roschinsky

August 8, 1943 — April 6, 2021

Ruth “Sandy” A. Roschinsky, 77, a resident of Fayetteville, PA, and formerly of Mercersburg, PA, passed away peacefully at 11:15 am Tuesday, April 6, 2021 at the Chambersburg Hospital. Born on August 8, 1943 in Chambersburg, she was the daughter of the late James Harold and Daisy Pearl (Heckman) Rohrabaugh.

Sandy graduated from James Buchanan High School in 1961. She was a retired Systems Analyst of the Letterkenny Army Depot, prior small business owner and after retirement, a cashier at Rite Aid in Fayetteville. She met the love of her life, Walker S. Roschinsky in 1983. They married on June 2, 1990. Surviving are her husband, Walker, her four children, James F. Wolfe, Jr, Steven A. Wolfe, Kevin L. Wolfe and Laura A. Green, and three sisters, Janet (James) McGlaughlin, Dord (Earl) Simms, and Shirley (Robert) Rhodes, nine grandchildren and many great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by both parents, and her brother, James H. Rohrabaugh, Jr.

Sandy was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She enjoyed spending time with family and loved vacationing at the beach. She was an excellent home decorator, snazzy dresser and great conversationist. She was always willing to help others and volunteered with the Friends of Caledonia. She showed her love to others by just being there for them and always providing a listening ear or advice when needed. Anyone that knew her would recognize her beautiful smile and fun spirit. Her influence will forever remain with all that knew her.

Your hug meant the world to us all,
And you were always there to call.
Nobody else held us so tight,
Or made us feel so right.
No one’s eyes shined so bright with love,
But now you will be the light that cast upon us from high above.
