She was very musically inclined and had such a love for dancing. She was deemed the "Jitterbug Queen" by friends and family. She was a hardworking single mother of 5, who always made sure her kids never had to do without. She had a caring heart and always opened her home to those who needed a place to stay.
Theresa loved her days spent down the shore, soaking up the sun, and especially playing security guard at The Matador. Her deck watching was always on point.

Richard William died peacefully on Friday, Sept. 11, 2020 after a brief illness, surrounded by family. He was 61. Born in Kensington, Richard was a graduate of Father Judge High School (1976). He attended Philadelphia
Community College and Temple University where he studied criminal justice. Richard was last employed as a Trade’s Helper with the Philadelphia city commissioner’s office, his work revolved around elections. He remained steadfast in his Catholic faith until the end, able to let go only after his receiving the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick.
If you were lucky enough to know Richie you know that he listened intently and only lent advice if asked. You can be certain that if he did share what was on his mind, his thoughts were deeply considered. You would have also learned that Richard was as honest and as loyal as any friend you could hope to have. His heart was huge and wide open, always and for all. He was simply a kind, caring and lovely man. In his younger years Richard spent much time at the ice rink. He enjoyed and excelled at skating and several family members got their very first skating lessons from him. He loved the Philadelphia Eagles and had a dear friend with whom he would text back and forth throughout each game. Richie enjoyed the Jersey shore, the beaches, the boardwalk and everything in between. He spent one week every year making memories there with his family. In later years he was famous for sending out positive texts such as “stay happy” and “thinking and praying for you” along with the corresponding emoji, inevitably brightening your day.
Richard was loved by many and he knew that. He will be greatly missed by many cousins and family members. He is survived by his daughter, Jennifer McLaughlin, two granddaughters, Kara Marie and Kaitlynn, whom he greatly loved, his mother, Patricia Steinmetz (Scullin), brother William R. Dotzman (Carolyn), sisters Patricia
Phipps (George) and Tracy Wismer (Tom). He was uncle to nephews Jack Sullivan Tommy Wismer, and Ian J. Sullivan and niece Ashley Wismer. He was predeceased by nephew, Billy Dotzman, and niece, Laura Dotzman. Richard is also survived by his father Richard Dotzman (Maryanne) and their family.
A celebration of his life will be held at a date to be determined.

George Medzigian passed away in his home on July 29, 2020.
George was born in Philadelphia on September 12, 1941, son to the late Krikor and Angelle Medzigian. He attended Simon Gratz high school and then apprenticed as a tool and die maker, a profession he would work diligently at until he retired.
George was also a member of Holy Trinity Armenian Church in Cheltenham, PA and a member of the Knar choral group.
George lived most of his life with his mother Angel who passed in 1976 and with his father Krikor.
George was a passionate supporter of the Armenian genocide recognition and often spoke about it and attended functions.
George never married and had no children. To simply state the simple facts of someone is never enough to understand that each of us has a role to play in this lifetime. Although he lived alone and preferred that style of life, he was a highly sociable guy. He had his own style of communication and he enjoyed just being part of the Armenian community remaining at the periphery but interactive with his close friends. When he was younger and even into his older age, he was like an Armenian James Brown- superbad, a man with a larger than life personality. While he loved such alpha male activities as guns, machines, motorcycles and cars, George also loved animals and inside, away from his sometimes-rough exterior, there was a vulnerability from a man who deeply loved his friends and family as well and his Armenian heritage and wanted fairness and justice in the world. George was unique and he stayed true to himself, he spoke frankly and freely without pretense and that is another reason why we love him.
Being a person whose spirit and DNA are embedded in an ancient culture that has been through so much makes losing a unique Armenian family member difficult and yet it is a reminder to us in these days of rapid, fast paced technology and out of control destructive world events, that a real life requires reflective wisdom, compassion, and the strength to be authentic as this is what makes us human and knits communities together. Accepting people for who they are creates a diverse, loving world. What really matters is never how much stuff we have accumulated, or wealth, or the car we drive, fitting in, or showing off, but that each of us is a unique expression of the Creator and we are here as part of creation and to create ourselves, and celebrate each moment, expressing companionship, love, and compassion to each other and to all life as part of our eternal experience- and there are many ways to do this. His energy and soul were unaffected and candid, he had no airs or veneer, he was a free spirit and still is. He was true to himself; he made the most of who he was in this time and space and we know he knows we love him deeply and always will for being that.
He leaves his sister Sarah and brother in law Thomas Babaian, nephew Haig Thomas, Jaymie and Thomas Babaian, niece Caryn Babaian and nephew Ara Babaian. Relatives and Friends are invited to the gravesite funeral mass performed by the Holy Trinity Armenian Church of Cheltenham. Service will be Tuesday, August 4, 2020 1:00 p.m. Lawnview Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations in George’s memory to Holy Trinity Armenian Church 101 Ashmead Road, Cheltenham, PA 19012. Arrangements by Wackerman Funeral Home 8060 Verree Road, Philadelphia, Pa 19111.

Barbara (Courduff) age 55, formerly of Fox Chase passed away Tuesday, July 7, 2020. Barbara was born July 17, 1964, in the Fox Chase section of Philadelphia, PA. She attended St. Cecilia Grade School ’78 and Cardinal Dougherty High School ’82. She worked throughout the Holy Redeemer Health System for over 30 years.
To have met Barb once was to have loved her for a lifetime. She left her mark on everyone, whether it was sitting down to have a heart to heart conversation, simply giving a smile when someone needed it or a shoulder to cry on. Barb was there when you needed her, even when you didn’t know you needed it.
When Barb walked in any room, she brought smiles to the faces of everyone she knew and if you didn’t know her, someone would make sure you did. She had an energy that lifted everyone around her, she loved to celebrate life with her friends and family every chance she could. Barb may not have been the first one at the party, but she was sure to be one of the last; making sure she had enough time to hug and talk to everyone she knew.
Barbara enjoyed spending time at the beach and relaxing by the pool with her family and friends. She was the heart and soul of her family, the rock for anyone who needed her. She lit up a room when she walked in the door with her glowing smile and huge heart. She cared for both of her parents during their final years in her home with her undying love and compassion. Her sister and brothers always found her comfort and love whether it was a phone call, a long hug or a home cooked meal. She had a bond with her nieces and nephews like no other, she was a second mother to her son’s friends and knew how to make everyone she met feel like family. She will always be remembered for her glowing smile, her amazing sense of humor, infectious laugh and huge heart.
Barb shared her love for cooking with family and friends, whether it was patiently teaching the Cooking Class at St. Albert’s School or making sure her family knew how to make Matt’s favorite chocolate chip cookies and Mike’s peanut butter (Tandy) cake. She helped friends by making meals for their families while they were at work, “this way they can just pick it up hot and take it home to eat…”. Barb always cooked a meal for 3 to feed a family of 25, “just in case someone stops over”. Barb found a love for crafting after her father passed, which of course turned into Barb making jewelry and other gifts for everyone she knew.
Barb is survived by her loving sons Matthew and Michael and their father George. Loving sister of Maryann (Dave Redlinger), Ed Courduff (Clare) and Brian Courduff (Jeanette); niece of Patricia Dotzman; also survived by many loved nieces, nephews and cousins.
