GIRARD — Dorothy F. Masternick, 96, passed away peacefully Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2022, at Liberty Health Care Center.

Dorothy was born Nov. 3, 1925, in Beaver Falls, Pa., the daughter of William J. and Annabelle Onspaugh Fritz.

Dorothy graduated from Beaver Falls High School and Jameson Memorial School of Nursing in New Castle, Pa. She worked in a wartime factory as a bomb inspector during World War II while attending nursing school. While working as a registered nurse at North Side Hospital, she attended Youngstown State University, where she met her future husband, John Masternick. They married June 25, 1949, and together they co-owned, developed and operated Windsor House Nursing Homes.

Dorothy was a member of St. Rose Catholic Church and was very active in the Catholic community. She served as president of the Youngstown Diocesan Council of Catholic Women, Bishops Advisory Board, Retired Priests Commission, Ohio Catholic Conference, was an advocate of Catholic school education and organized a monthly Rosary group. She was especially active in the Cursillo movement which shaped her commitment to care for the elderly in our community with compassion and dignity. Along with her husband, they established the John and Dorothy Masternick Foundation which provides funding to Catholic education and scholarships for local high school graduates and nursing students, as well as establishing the nursing simulation laboratory at Youngstown State University.

Dorothy was a natural caregiver and had a strong faith. She loved to host Sunday dinner, bridge club and loved to read and paint. After retiring, she enjoyed spending time in Florida, but her favorite thing to do was to spoil her grandchildren, especially at Christmas.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her children, two sons, Jeffrey (Terri) Masternick and attorney John J. (Melissa) Masternick and two daughters, Maria Masternick and Theresa (Leo) Grimes; grandchildren, John Colby Grimes, Daniel (Stacy) Grimes, Ken Grimes, John Michael Masternick, Christopher Masternick, Alyssa Masternick, Kevin (Erica) Pangio and Amy Pangio; great-grandson, Dean Grimes; nephew, Greg (Cheryl) Hardy; great-niece, Jennifer; and great-nephew, Jason.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her sister, Mildred Hardy; and her brother, Donald W. Fritz.

The family will receive relatives and friends from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, July 29, 2022, in Rosetta Hall in St. Rose Church, where words of remembrance will take place at 12:30 p.m. Friday.

The family would like to express sincere gratitude to the caring and compassionate staff at Liberty Health Care Center and Liberty Arms; they embraced Dorothy and became her second family over the past several years.

In remembrance, the family requests any donations be made to the Beatitude House or a charity of your choice.
