YORK The Lord came to take Dolores (Lorry) Janosky home on Tuesday, July 23, at the Lutheran Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Sprenkle Drive, York. She was 83 years old. Born on May 20, 1930, in Pittsburgh, she was the daughter of the late Theophile and Frieda (Hofstetter) Locher, both originally from Switzerland. She met her husband, the late Fred B. Janosky, at the University of Pittsburgh. After marriage, they moved to eastern PA where she began her career at Western Electric in Allentown. After a brief hiatus to start and raise a family, Dolores returned to work. She was employed as Personnel Administrator at American Cigar Company in Mountaintop, PA, then served as Secretary to the Vice President and Administrative Assistant to Marketing Vice President at Penn Millers Insurance Company in Wilkes Barre. The Lord blessed Dolores with lots of energy and a desire to serve others. Throughout her adult life and into retirement, she used both gifts to benefit all whom she met. She was an active volunteer and organizer for the Girl Scouts, United Way, the Geisinger Children's Miracle Network, the American Red Cross, the American Cancer Society, Points of Light "Join Hands Day" events, and the Northeastern Pennsylvania Rails-to-Trails organization. In addition, she was president of Trinity Investment Club and a member of Hazleton Leadership Board. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Hazleton, for many years and, more recently, St. Peter's Lutheran Church in York. Dolores will also be remembered for her devotion to and the compassionate care she provided to her husband and brother in their later years and for the loving care she gave to many in the community. She was a daily visitor to the Lutheran Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Sprenkle Drive to attend to her brother and to offer friendship to other residents. Dolores is survived by her son, Fred J. Janosky (Mary) of Wernersville, PA and daughters, Susan J. Nenstiel (Kurt) of York, and Nancy Chupak (Lou) of Old Saybrook, Conn.; six grandchildren, Seth and Amanda Nenstiel, Thomas Janosky, Zachary, Anna and Maxwell Chupak; her brother, David Locher of Seaford Va.; and her very dear friend, Lyle Bowen.
