Myra Rose Zarnoch, 61, of Weirton, passed away Wednesday, January 29, at her home after a spirited battle with colon and liver cancer. Born November 22, 1952 in Pittsburgh, PA, she was a daughter of Margaret Wisnosky of Penn Hills, PA and the late Frank Wisnosky. In addition to her mother, Myra is survived by her husband Charles Zarnoch of Weirton; sons Zachary Zarnoch and his wife Dr. Julie Uspal-Zarnoch of Ardmore, PA, and Corey Zarnoch of Weirton; and her sister Marla Perri and her husband Michael of Leechburg, PA. Myra served as a medical transcriptionist for Mercy Hospital, Weirton Medical Center and WPS Corporation. Most recently, she worked with her dear friends in the billing department for Change, Inc. A beloved wife and mother, Myra worked tirelessly to provide and care for "her three boys", including her husband. She looked forward every year to the family trip to Hilton Head Island, SC, where she would spend the week walking on the beach, lounging in the pool, and enjoying homemade frozen margaritas. An avid Penguins fan, Myra was never shy to share her love of the team on Facebook. Her many cherished friendships included that of Ted and Paula Harrington, whose love and support were always appreciated by her and her family. Those who were lucky enough to have known Myra will never forget her generosity, loving demeanor, and warm heart. Visitations will be held Saturday from 2:00 PM until the time of funeral services at 4:30 PM at Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home, 3219 Main Street, Weirton, WV. Memorial contributions may be made to The Lighthouse Domestic Violence Awareness Center, 3058 West Street, Weirton, WV 26062.

  1. Dear Chuck, Zach and Corey —

    How shocked and saddened I am to hear of Myra’s passing. I had no idea that she was ill, or I would have prayed for her health and well-being; but, since the time for that is gone, I pray that God’s peace and blessings will be yours during this most tender season; and, may He give you many lovely memories, so that you may always have roses in December.

    Ever hoping . . .

    Always in Jesus,


  2. Dear grieving family,

    My wife and I are truly sorry for your tremendous loss and would like to express our condolences to the entire family. We cannot imagine the great pain and sorrow you are experiencing during this very difficult time. It is our sincere hope you find comfort in knowing that Jehovah has promised to “swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8), and that he will resurrect our dear loved ones who have passed away. John 5:28.

  3. Sending endless love, prayers, strength, and courage…I write this with a heavy heart, knowing how difficult this journey had to have been and will continue to be. It was always very evident to me, how proud Myra was of her family and what a strong woman she was. My prayers are this… Through you, her strength will live on, and you will continue to make her proud. Prayers that the many people who care will help help lighten this burden and help carry you when you need it most, through their thoughts and prayers, now and always. And may God grant you the ability to notice and accept little signs from above as a comfort in realizing that she is still with you and always will be. Sending all my love, Cousin Ashley. (The write up was the best I’ve read! What a great tribute to such a deserving woman!)
