Paula Jo “PJ” (Roberts) Tehansky, 51, of Mechanicsburg, PA, passed away on Thursday, October 13, 2022, at UPMC West Shore Hospital following a brave battle with cancer.
She was born on September 27, 1971 in Warren, Pa, a daughter of Karen Gerg Roberts, who survives of St. Marys, and the late Paul Roberts.
On July 30, 2022, she married her soul mate and love of her life, George Tehansky, who survives of Mechanicsburg.
PJ was a graduate of Elk County Christian High School and then graduated from St. Bonaventure with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. She then earned a Master’s Degree from Temple University. She had been employed by University of Pittsburgh in Mechanicsburg for a number of years and was recently employed by the Catherine Hershey Schools for Early Learning.
A loving, kind, and compassionate daughter, sister, wife, and mother, PJ loved reading and gardening. She was an exceptional cook who enjoyed making meals for her family and friends, and especially enjoyed Thanksgiving with her family. She was an avid fan of the Pittsburgh Penguins and enjoyed cheering them on. Having adopted and loved many Labradors over the years, PJ’s most recent lab, “Sky”, was her pal and constant companion. Her greatest love and accomplishment in life was her family and friends, whom she enjoyed spending time with, laughing with, and sharing her life with.
In addition to her mother and her husband, she is survived by her beloved daughter; Zoe Lundgren of Mechanicsburg, and by three siblings; Michael Roberts of DuBois, Kelly (Bill) Goodling of Mechanicsburg, and Christopher (Sharon) Roberts of Westerville, OH, as well as by numerous nieces and nephews.
