Angela Lewcun Obituary

Angelina 'Angela' Lewcun, formerly of Philadelphia, died Saturday, December 30, 2023 at the age of 90.

Born in Kolomyia, Ukraine, Angela was the daughter of the late Peter and Anna Bilyj.  She was preceded in death by her husband Roman Lewcun, her brother Zenon Bilyj, and her sister Teresa (Bilyj) Prociuk.  She is survived by her sons: Dr. Joseph (Mary Lou) Lewcun and Dr. Robert (Mary) Lewcun; as well as her grandchildren: Dr. Bernadette (Shane) Dougherty, Dr. Joseph (Emily) Lewcun, Timothy, Molly, and Robert. 

As a teenager, Angela emigrated to the United States with her family after WWII and subsequently attended St Basil Academy.  Upon graduating high school, she worked as a secretary for Honeywell Corporation.  She married Roman Lewcun and was devoted to him and to their sons.

Angela was a loving, joyful, kind person who enriched the lives of all who knew her.  She loved spending time with her grandchildren.  She was a self taught artist as well as an excellent seamstress and created beautiful sketches and decorations.  Angela also loved gardening and her garden was always bursting with beautiful flowers.

As with many who emigrated to the US from Ukraine after WWII, Angela endured many hardships during the war.  She was ever grateful for the opportunity to come to the US and she lived a life of joyful energy and positivity.  She had a kind, compassionate heart and was always ready to help others when needed.

Relatives and friends are invited to Angela's viewing on Wednesday at 9 AM at St. Anne's Ukrainian Catholic Church.  Requiem Liturgy will be celebrated at 10 AM.  Burial will follow at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery.
