Kathryn Marie “Bebe” (Granett) Gonsorcik, 75, of Clarksburg passed
away on early Sunday, February 21, 2016, surrounded by her family. She
was born on July 26, 1940, in Clarksburg, WV, to the late William “BG”
and Angeline “Angie” (Stumpo) Granett, and grew up in North View.
Bebe graduated from the former Victory High School in 1958 and then
graduated from the old Saint Mary’s Hospital School of Nursing in
1961.
Bebe will be greatly missed by her husband, William “Dukie” Gonsorcik,
whom she married on July 6, 1968, and their three daughters, Angela M.
Gonsorcik of Alexandria, VA, Jennifer L. Gonsorcik of Morgantown, WV,
and Dr. Victoria K. Gonsorcik (Gerry Stephens), and one grandson, Evan
Gonsorcik Stephens of Mt. Pocono, PA. She also will be missed by her
sister, Sondra (Granett) Colombo (Rudy Colombo) of Clarksburg, her
brother, Samuel Granett (Barbara), of Austin, TX, her Aunt Lucy
(Costa) Alvarez (Uncle Henry Alvarez) of Clarksburg and several
brother and sister-in laws, cousins, nieces and nephews.
A dedicated Registered Nurse (RN), Bebe worked full time at the former
St. Mary’s Hospital Emergency Room, often serving as co- head nurse
with her best friend, Rebecca Dean, until she became a mother. She
later resumed work as a part-time emergency room RN at the old United
Hospital Center until her retirement in 1996. Even while not at work,
Bebe was always ready to help her friends and family with her medical
nursing advice and skills. Bebe was part of a close group of fellow
nurses who met monthly as part of the unofficial St. Mary’s Hospital
School of Nursing “Lunch Bunch.” She also was a member of the St.
Mary’s Hospital School of Nursing Alumni group. A special Nurses
ceremony will be celebrated during the viewing/visitation in her honor
on Wednesday evening.
Bebe was well-known by her friends, neighbors, colleagues, and family
for her sense of humor and witty one-liners, often sharing
entertaining stories about her childhood, work, friends, and family.
Being a nurse, her kids could never “get out of school by pretending
to be sick.” She enjoyed growing flowers and was an avid reader, but
she especially enjoyed spending time with her grandson Evan who
celebrated his first birthday at Bebe’s home. Her friends and family
all gathered together last summer for her 75th birthday party
celebration.
Bebe was a Roman Catholic by faith.
She will be greatly missed by her husband, daughters, siblings,
neighbors and friends, and she will always be in our hearts.

Pancreatic Cancer Foundation at P. O. Box 1848, Longmont, CO 80502
