Dorothy Rzeczkowski Obituary
Dorothy "Theodosia" Rzeczkowski, 97, of Natrona, died peacefully Monday, June 11, 2018. Dorothy was born Sept. 18, 1920, and was a daughter of the late Ignatius and Anastasia (Dambrowski) Rzeczkowski. She was the last remaining family member out of 12 Children. Dorothy had a remarkable memory for both historical and personal life events. She would regale listeners with stories, often funny ones, of long ago times and of her once bustling, beloved town of Natrona, where she had lived for most of her 97 years. She enjoyed Notre Dame football, knitting and other needlework, and regularly read several periodicals. Always most important to her were her family, her Catholic faith and her Polish heritage. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings, Stanley, Floyd, Carl, Veronica Dobies, Nellie, Maxine, Sophie, Edgar, Caroline Schneider, Vincent and Alexandra; and also her niece, Veronica Scardon. She is survived by her nephew, Anthony (Christine) Rzeczkowski; her niece, Christine (James) Damratoski; her great-nephews, Edward and Jim; her great-nieces, Ashley, Alyssa and Lindsay; and her great-great-nieces and nephews, Sophia, Jonathan, Alex, Jack, Anna, Katie, Luke and Reese.
The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 14, 2018, at the PAUL R. AJAK FUNERAL HOME, INC., 2 Pine St., Natrona, where a parting prayer will be held at 9:30 a.m. Friday, followed by a Christian funeral Mass at 10 a.m. in St. Ladislaus Worship Site, Natrona. Entombment will follow at Mt. Airy Cemetery, Mausoleum.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to EWTN TV or the Ladies of Charity of St. Joseph Parish, Natrona. Please leave your condolences to the family at www.ajakfh.com.
