Obituary

Obituary for Richard F. Venne

Richard F. Venne, 80, of Spring Township, passed away April 5, 2021, in Saint Joseph’s Medical Center. He was the husband of Ann (Weston) Venne, to whom he was married for 51 years. Richard and Ann met April 7, 1969, while they were employed at The Bank of Pennsylvania.

Born in Reading, Pennsylvania, Richard was a son of the late Frank and Erma (Ruth) Venne. Richard grew up in Shillington, Pennsylvania, and graduated in 1958 from Governor Mifflin High School.

Richard was employed by Sears, Roebuck & Co., taking a leave of absence from 1961-1963 to serve in the U.S. Army. He was stationed in Fort Ritchie, Maryland, where he worked in the intelligence department. Following his military service, Richard returned to Sears, where he worked for 25 years. He later was employed for 16 years as a Case Manager by the Pennsylvania Department of Welfare, retiring in December 2003.

In the early 1960’s, Richard was a member of the Reading Scuba Rescue Team, an all-volunteer rescue team. Richard served as chairman of the Cumru Township Board of Commissioners from 1984 until 1988. He was a member of the Governor Mifflin School Board from 1988 until 1992. He also served as President of the Clover Park Athletic Association, where he was a long-time member.

Richard was an avid Notre Dame fan. As a young man he enjoyed water skiing, in retirement he enjoyed golfing and always loved a good cigar. Through this year, Richard enjoyed working for the Transportation Department of the Wilson School District. By far, his greatest joy was his children and grandchildren. Richard was a loyal friend, devoted husband, loving father, and the most amazing “Poppy.” He will be deeply missed.

In addition to his wife, Richard is survived by a son, David (fiancé Kirsty Antosy) of Shillington, and by a daughter, Kristen Marcinko (former son-in law Michael Marcinko) of Spring Township. He is also survived by three grandchildren: Taylor, Brooke and Trey Marcinko of Spring Township; a sister, Joan (Venne) Youngerman of Shillington and a nephew, Marc Youngerman, also of Shillington. “Uncle Richard” is also greatly beloved by his extended family in California.

A public visitation will be held at Kuhn Funeral Home, 739 Penn Avenue, West Reading, on Saturday, April 10, 2021 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. A private graveside service will follow. Condolences may be expressed at www.kuhnfuneralhomes.com.
