Judith Mae (Kirsopp) Kyle

January 4, 1944

June 18, 2024

It is with profound sadness that the family of Judith Mae (Kirsopp) Kyle announce her passing, on Tuesday, June 18, at the age of 80, following a courageous battle with ovarian cancer. She was surrounded with love by her family.

Daughter of the late Albert and Anna Jane (Buttlar) Kirsopp; daughter in law of the late Jack and Catherine Kyle; wife of the late Charles Kyle, Sr.; beloved mother of Anita (Peter) Shaw, Charles Kyle, Jr., and John (Shannon) Kyle; proud grandmother of Amanda (Dave) Scisciani, Kevin (Kate) Habovick; Charles Kyle III, Meghan Kyle, Madison (Richard) Bates, Jonathon Kyle, Benjamin Kyle, Jacob Kyle, Cameron Shaw, and Samantha Shaw; loving great grandmother of Thomas Habovick, Aidan Scisciani, Lillian Habovick, and soon to be born Lindsay Mae Bates; sister of Wayne (Susie) Kirsopp, Jim (Gaylene) Kirsopp, Richard (Laurie) Kirsopp and the late Kathy Pachner; sister in law of Mary Anne (late Robert) Kinzler, Jean (late Kenneth) Kozy, Jack (Pauline) Kyle, and the late Donald Kyle; also survived by generations of nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, and friends.

Lovingly married to Chuck Kyle for 50 years, they loved cooking Sunday dinners together, spending time with their family, and enjoying life at the cottage. Judy was known to her family and friends as someone they could always rely on for anything that came their way.

She was a true caregiver. When her mother had a stroke, Judy moved her into her home. When Chuck fell ill with cancer, she lovingly cared for him. In her final days she was more concerned with our well being than her own pain.

Judy’s passion was spending time with her grandkids and great grandkids. She loved Anita’s Two Boys and a Sweet Girl Tuesdays. They gave her so much joy.

Judy lived for her family, had a never ending love for her family, and courageously fought her illness for her family. To say she was the best is an understatement. Each and every day, she modeled how to be strong, caring, giving, and loving.

While our hearts mourn the loss, we take comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering. In Judy’s final words, she shared her feelings of knowing she has loved and has been loved in this world, while ensuring her family she knew she will continue to be loved.

The family would like to thank Dr. Mahdi and his staff at Magee Women’s Hospital for their care of Judy.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the SZAFRANSKI-EBERLEIN FUNERAL HOME, INC., where family and friends will be received on Sunday, June 23, 2024, from 2-7pm at 101 Third St., Carnegie. A private family service will be held.

Magee - Womens Research Institute & Foundation
