Regina Emerick

January 9, 1962 — August 22, 2022

Regina Emerick, age 60, of Palm Bay, FL, died on Monday, August 22, 2022. She was born in McKeesport on January 9, 1962 and is the daughter of the late Jack and Regina Kelley Hoak. She was employed as a project analyst at L3Harris Technologies. Regina liked adventuring to new places to visit National Parks and monuments. She loved the Laurel Highlands and belonged among the wildflowers. She spent a lot of her time tending to nature in her own backyard by planting and feeding songbirds and critters. Fall was her favorite season and she'd never miss a Pittsburgh Steelers game. She was a true nurturer by nature and will be sorely missed by every person or creature that knew her.

She is survived by her husband, Roger Emerick; daughters, Jaqueline Emerick of Washington, D.C.; Laurel Emerick of Palm Bay, FL; and brother, Father Jack W. Hoak, OFM of El Salvador.
