Sandra L. (Znosko) Kaminski

January 9, 1945 — June 7, 2019

Sandra L. (Znosko) Kaminski, 74, of Natrona, passed away peacefully Friday, June 7 2019, in her home
surrounded by her family after a short battle with cancer. The daughter of the late Bruce and Sophie
Znosko, Sandra was born January 9, 1945 in Natrona Heights. Along with her late husband Stanley,
Sandra spent most of her life raising her four children in Natrona. Sandra was a hair stylist out of her
home for 30 plus years. Saturday in her home was a very busy day as she prepared her clients for
weekend mass. Sandra was a member of Saint Joseph Parish (formerly Saint Ladislaus) and was very
active participating in countless activities when St. Lads was a thriving ethnic Polish parish. Sandra
enjoyed cooking, baking, spending her mornings completing the daily crossword puzzle and watching
game shows, especially her favorite, Jeopardy. Holiday meals were a true enjoyment for mom as she
took great pride in preparing her meals and sharing with her family. She was a devoted and loving
mother and grandmother who put the care of others ahead of herself, even during her illness. Survivors
include her four children, Christine (Chuck) Mihaly, of Belleville, MI; Brian (Shelly) Kaminski, of Natrona;
Douglas Kaminski, of Springdale; Matthew Kaminski of Tarentum; her six grandchildren, Chelsea and
Megan Mihaly; Jakeb and Joshua Kaminski; Logan and Ian Kaminski; a sister Janet Stipetic; brother in law
Edward (Gloria) Kaminski; brother in law Theodore (Patricia) Kaminski and a sister in law, Antoinette
(Paul) Wolfhope. Also, numerous nieces and nephews for which she shared the same love. In addition
to her parents, Sandra was preceded in death by her husband Stanley Kaminski in 2004; her brother,
Bruce "Brucie" Znosko in 1980. The family of Sandra would like to thank Dr. John Lech the nurses and
staff at UPMC Cancer Center, Natrona Heights for their treatment and assistance, as well as Heritage
Hospice and her daughter-in-law Shelly Kaminski for their supportive care over the past 2 months.
