Roberta "Jeanie" Kovich

Roberta "Jeanie" Kovich, 87, of Westfield, passed away on Friday, December 16, 2022 at Sanders Glen in Westfield.  She was born on September 13, 1935 to Andrew and Mary (Loncaric) Duda in Gary, Indiana. Jeanie graduated from Lew Wallace High School in 1954 and married Steve Kovich on August 28, 1955.

She and Steve raised their family in Hobart, Indiana. Jeanie worked in secretarial positions at Hobart City Schools, Northwest Indiana Federation of Labor and several medical offices. Jeanie was a member of Zeta Beta Chi women's club and also a Girl Scout Leader. She loved gardening and sewing. She created thousands of miniature holiday stockings that were distributed across the country bringing smiles to children and adults at fairs and events. She was a fan of Hobart Brickie football and the Chicago Blackhawks. 

She was predeceased by her husband, Steve; her sister and brother-in-law, Patricia and Sam Ampeliotis; her sister, Marian Bianco; and one great-grandchild, David Michael Dodd.

She is survived by her children, Linda (Jeff) Kenney, Karen Kovich, and Steve (Leslie) Kovich; grandchildren, Scott (Nicole) Kenney, Jamie (Michael) Dodd, Kelsey Lynch, Emerson Kovich, and Samantha Kovich; and seven great-grandchildren.

The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Sanders Glen for their care and compassion over the past four years, and especially in the last several months. 

Services will be held at 3:00 pm on Wednesday, December 21, 2022 at Randall & Roberts Funeral Center, 1685 Westfield Road in Noblesville, with Rev. Stanley R. Sutton officiating.  Visitation will be from 2:00 pm until the time of service at the funeral home.  Private burial will be at Calumet Park Cemetery in Merrillville at a later date.
