Obituary

 Louise “Weezie” Brennen, of Kennedy Township, passed away peacefully the morning of March 27, 2021, at the age of 94 at Caring Heights Community Care.  Louise was born September 29, 1926 in Pittsburgh, PA. She was the daughter of the late Donato and Nellie DiDesiderio.   

Louise was a devout catholic and practiced her faith her entire life. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister Elizabeth Ross on February 15, 2012, and her sister-in-law, Dolores DiDesiderio on March 1, 2003.  She is survived by her brother Gerald DiDesiderio.  Louise was devoted to her family, and is remembered as a beloved aunt of Jerry DiDesiderio, Teresa (Dr. Keith) Scott, Judy (James) Palmieri, Dee Dee Mays, Linda Gualzata, Maria (Robert) Kubler, Margaret (Nick) Nazak, and Anthony DiDesiderio; she is also survived by many loving great and great-great-nieces and nephews.

Louise spent her entire 48 year professional career as a Pittsburgh Public School teacher and administrator. Her tireless work ethic and dedication to her students was widely known, and she provided a tremendous amount of energy and talent to ensure students were present and prepared to learn. In her final role, Louise served as the first female Superintendent of the Pittsburgh Public School District from 1992 to 1997. 

She received numerous awards and acknowledgements from many state and local agencies, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and other organizations that recognized her influence and achievements. 

Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Sanvito Funeral Home, Stowe/Kennedy Township.  A private family service was held at Sanvito Funeral Home on March 31, 2021, to celebrate Louise’s life and achievements, and a Catholic service was provided by St. Malachy Church. Interment took place at Resurrection Cemetery.

If desired, memorials can be made to a charity of one’s choice in Louise‘s name, as her generosity was widely known. May she rest in peace with the Lord knowing she lived a glorious life in His name.
