Obituary of Olga Klipa

Olga Mrkonja Klipa, 91, of Steelton, died on Friday, November 1, 2019 in her home, surrounded by her loving family. Olga retired from the Commonwealth of PA Treasury Department. She was a Lifelong Member of St. Nicholas Serbian Eastern Orthodox Church; member and served on the Executive Boards of the following Church Ministries: Seniors of St. Nicholas, The Mothers Club, Sunday School Teacher, and American Lodge #37. She served on the National Board of the Serb National Federation as an Auditor. To say she worked tirelessly and selflessly for her Church and Community, serving on the Congregation Board for many years and as its first Woman President of the Congregation, a position she held for 14 years, does not do justice to her dedication and love for her Church. She was born on August 26. 1928 to the late Luka Mrkonja and Anna Cucic Mrkonja Miscevich. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her step father, Milan Miscevich, her husband, Peter "Clark" Klipa, brother, Zarko Mrkonja, sisters, Darinka Mrkonja, Mildred Mrkonja Belic and Helen Miscevich. She is survived by three daughters, Nadine, Cheryl and Christina Klipa, all of Steelton (with whom she lived); several nieces, nephews, her loving Godchildren, Kumovi, and many friends she made throughout her life. Funeral Services will be held on Monday, November 11, 2019 at 11:00 am in St. Nicholas Serbian Eastern Orthodox Church, Oberlin with Rev. Christopher Rocknage, her Pastor, officiating. Burial will be in Churchville Cemetery, Oberlin. A viewing will be held on Monday from 9:30 am until 11:00 am in her church. Arrangements are being handled by Wiedeman Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Steelton. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church Iconography Project, 601 S. Harrisburg St., Oberlin, PA 17113.
