Barbara Scanlon Driscoll, 70, of Pittsburgh, died on Tuesday January 21, 2020, peacefully in her sleep. She was born in Pittsburgh, PA on September 4th, 1949 to Eugene F Scanlon and Ann Boyle. She grew up in the North Side, was a proud alumna of Pitt, and raised her family in Mt. Lebanon. Barbara was a gifted writer, fundraiser, and event planner, but she derived the most joy from being a loving wife to her late husband, Frank “Dino” Driscoll, mother to her three children, and a surrogate mother to countless more. Her one-of-a-kind dance moves, witty humor, and vivacious zeal for life affected her friends, family members, acquaintances, and - inevitably - strangers everywhere she went. Now it is up to the angels to be charmed. May she enjoy an unlimited fountain of bourbon old-fashions in heaven, be reunited with her husband, and reunite with her friends and family who passed before. She is survived by her three children: Christopher (Shahane Martirosyan), Patrick, and Molly Driscoll Nagurney (Drew Nagurney); her brother Gene Scanlon (Sheila Scanlon); countless cousins; a few fuz-ins; and numerous family and friends around the globe. Visitation will be at Laughlin Cremation & Funeral Tributes 222 Washington Road Mt. Lebanon, on Sunday 1-5 PM. Mass of Christian Burial will be offered in St. Bernard Church on Monday at 10:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Pittsburgh Humane Animal Rescue. https://www.humaneanimalrescue.org/adopt/
