Dolores Mariam Soviak, age 85, of Wilmington, Delaware, died peacefully after a long illness on Monday, April 21, 2014 at ManorCare Health Services, Pike Creek.
Born January 25, 1929 in Cleveland, Ohio, she was the daughter of the late Peter J. and Frances E. (Jurick) Neider. Dolores graduated from Notre Dame Academy in Cleveland, after which she started working for the Ohio Ball Bearing Company as a telephone switchboard operator. It was there she met her husband, John Soviak, who she married in July 1952. She later worked for the Stanton School District, during which time she enjoyed light-hearted banter in her contact with many students. Dolores also worked for Delaware Answering Service where her gentle professionalism and kind helpfulness was enjoyed and appreciated by many clients and their customers.
Dolores cared deeply for her family and prided herself in providing a warm and loving home. She enjoyed reading, sewing and needlework, solving difficult crossword puzzles, backyard bird watching, bowling, spending time with family and friends, and enjoyed sightseeing with her husband and close friends in her later years. She was creative with all varieties of handicrafts and was also a gifted cook - Sunday dinners after church and holiday dinners were always a special treat.
Dolores is survived by her husband of 62 years John Soviak; a daughter, Barbara S. Bowser (John) of Newark, and a son, John M. Soviak (Robin) of Middletown; her grandchildren: Susan Humphrey, Daniel Bowser, Shawn Soviak and Bradley Soviak, and sister, Lois A. St. Onge of Surry, New Hampshire.
Relatives and friends are invited to a committal service at the Delaware Veterans Cemetery, 2465 Chesapeake City Road, Bear on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 2:00pm.
