Dorothy Rossick, 89, a devoted Catholic, loving wife and mother, and friend of so many, passed away peacefully at the Wesley Village Nursing Home on September 23, 2021.
Born March 16, 1932, she was the daughter of the late William and Katherine Silinski Karolchyk.
Raised in Edwardsville, where she graduated from high school, she moved to western Wyoming where she resided for over 60 years before receiving treatment at Wesley Village in 2020.
In the 1970s, she was employed by the RCA Mountain Top factory, where she retired as a transistor tester.
She was very active in her community, particularly in St. Monica Parish, having been one of the first members of the predecessor parish, Our Lady of Sorrows. She was a founding member of the Christian Mother’s Society at Our Lady of Sorrows, plus a choir member there and a regular volunteer in many parish church activities.
Dorothy was known for her sharp wit and dry sense of humor and brought joy and touched so many lives.
Her 42-year-old husband William in 1994 and sister Marie in 2019.
The survivors are her daughter, Kathryn Buccolo and her husband, Joseph, Bradenton, Florida; son, William and wife, Lesa, Austin, Texas; and several nieces and nephews.
Her post-cremation wishes are to have a small private burial ceremony at the Chapel of Mount Olivet at a future date to be determined. She will be buried at that time in Mount Olivet Cemetery next to her husband Bill.
The family would like to especially thank their dear neighbors and all the caregivers at Wesley Village and the Hospice du Sacré-Cœur who helped with her recent trip.
Memorial contributions, if desired, can be made to the Catholic Social Services Diocese of Scranton, 33 E. Northampton St., Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701.
Arrangements are made by Metcalfe Shaver Kopcza Funeral Home Inc., 504 Wyoming Ave., Wyoming.
