Paige L. Mong
Paige L. Mong, 73, of Venango Township, Parker, passed away Monday, Oct. 3, 2022, at Butler Memorial Hospital following an extended illness.
She was born on Aug. 1, 1949, in Butler.
Paige was a graduate of Butler High School. She had obtained certification as a phlebotomist and was a fully certified paramedic. She had worked over the years for the late Howard Kirtland, M.D., Dr. Sparadaro, M.D., and the former Franklin Hospital in phlebotomy.
Mrs. Mong was well-trained and worked for emergency ambulance services at North Washington VFD, Petrolia VFD and the Emlenton Area Ambulance.
In earlier years, she assisted with the Flames and Flickers Drill Team of the North Washington Fire Department.
Her greatest free time was spent enjoying fishing and painting. But above all, she was thrilled to have been blessed with grandchildren, and she played an important part in their lives, as well as in the life of Luka, her great-grandchild.
On Sept. 30, 2022, Paige was nearing the end of life on this earth. She told her family of longing to finally be with her daughter, Glori Layne, who was born Sept. 30, 1968, and who passed away in a tragic automobile accident on Sept. 9, 1983, en route to an evening school function. Paige was among the first responders to arrive on the scene to find her daughter involved.
She is survived by her husband, Raymond W. “Dick” Mong; two daughters, Amy and her husband, Ryan McKivigan, and Brandy Mong; a granddaughter, Athena, whom she and Dick reared, and Athena’s husband, Jacob Fowler; two McKivigan grandchildren, Ireland and Donovan; one great-grandchild, Luka Fowler; and two sisters, Shawn Zanicky and Gloria Welton.
In addition to Glori and her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Ricki Adams, who was her fishing buddy, and her sister, Tanya.
