Obituary

Lydia B. (Dewell) Sturgeon, 81, of Oakdale, passed away peacefully on, April 25, 2021, in her daughters’ home.

Lydia was born on March 6, 1940, in Pittsburgh, a daughter of the late Harold and Mary (Fryer) Dewell.

Mrs. Sturgeon was a retired residential billeting manager, for the 911th Airlift Wing. She was a member of the Eastern Star group, and a member of Amaranth. Mrs. Sturgeon loved her town, and her town loved her just as much. Lydia enjoyed everyone in her small town and always made sure to say hello and ask how they were doing. She enjoyed the town that she and her late husband had raised their family in, and all that Oakdale has done for them. Above all, her family was most important to her. Lydia’s children and grandchildren were the light of her life. They constantly brought joy, laughter, and happiness into her world. And there was never a time where you would question how much, Lydia loved you. She always made sure you knew; just how special you were to her.

Surviving are her children, Karla (the late Michael) Thomas, Terri (Carl) Speicher, Wilson (Laura) Sturgeon Jr., Melanie (Steven) Koscelnak, grandchildren, Michael Thomas Jr., and Kacey and Liam Sturgeon, two great grandchildren, and four sisters.

Lydia is preceded in death by her loving husband, of 62 years, Wilson L. Sturgeon (2019) and her grandson, James Hammerly Jr.

Friends and family will be received on Tuesday, April 27, 2021, from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. in Thomas-Little Funeral Service, Inc. and Crematory, 5000 Noblestown Rd., Oakdale (724-693-2800). A service will be held on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, at 11 a.m. in the funeral home. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the 911th Airlift Wing, 2475 Brown St, Coraopolis, PA 15108, in memory of Lydia.

To better ensure the safety of the family and those closest, when entering the funeral home, please abide by CDC guidelines, please practice social distancing, wear a mask, and sanitize/wash hands frequently, and please limit your time within the funeral home.
