We were saddened to learn of the passing of former North Hills Junior High School choral director and music teacher Ms. Susan McKinney. She had been battling a long illness and passed away early on September 16, 2016. Ms. McKinney worked for North Hills for 33 years, at West View Junior High School, for a brief time at North Hills High School, and then spent the remainder of her years teaching choir and music appreciation classes at the junior high school, retiring in 2011. She was also pianist for the high school musicals for 20+ years, playing in the pit orchestra for nearly every production. Ms. McKinney was an accomplished French Horn player, and assisted at band camp for many years during the time Ms. Areta Kalogeras was the marching band director. She also played horn with the North Pittsburgh Philharmonic Orchestra for several seasons.
Friends will be received 2 to 8 p.m. Sunday at DEVLIN FUNERAL HOME, 806 Perry Highway, Ross Township. A Mass of Christian Burial will be 10 a.m. Monday in St. Teresa of Avila Church.
Memorial contributions may be made to the North Hills Foundation c/o Lori Rieger, North Hills School District, 135 Sixth St., Pittsburgh, PA 15229.
