Catherine H. (Burns) Kubeika, 84, formerly of St. Clair, passed away on Friday, Oct. 2, 2020 at Schuylkill Center in Pottsville, PA.
Catherine was born in Pottsville, PA to the late Thomas and Anna Burns. Cathy was preceded in death by her husband, John “Jack” Kubeika, VII in 2006,  her daughter, Diane Kubeika Coppens in 2007, and by her sister, JoAnna Clark in 2011.
Cathy’s passion was cooking and baking for her family, especially her grandchildren. Her halupki, meatloaf, macaroni salad and holiday cookies were extraordinary. She loved God, her family, polka music, sports, West Point, and Schuylkill county.
She  was a 1957 graduate of Cass Twp. High School, and a proud  cheerleader for the only known PA H.S.  football team that can lay claim to being unbeaten, untied, and unscored upon after  a 10 game  season. She was an avid fan of scholastic sports, the Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs, and Philadelphia Phillies.
She is survived by her sons John Kubeika, VIII and wife Colleen of Enola, PA, and William Kubeika of Shenandoah, PA; two grandchildren, Candice Bruner and husband Adam of Enola, PA and John Kubeika, IX and wife Julie of Winchester, VA; five great grandchildren, Emerson, Madison, Eleni, John, X and Audrey; and by a brother, Thomas Burns, Downingtown, PA.
The family wishes to thank the staff of Schuylkill Center for their kindness, compassion, and care while Catherine resided there.
Due to pandemic restrictions, a private service  will be held  at the convenience of the family.
