Loretta E. Dembia

AGE: 90 • Neptune

Loretta E. Dembia, 90, died of natural causes on December 26.

Loretta was born in Jersey City on December 4, 1926, to Emily Hrynkiewicz Dembia and Thomas Dembia. She attended local parochial and public elementary schools and upon graduation from Dickinson High School, she joined the New York Telephone Company, where she proudly spent all of her professional career. After retirement she moved to Neptune, NJ, where she enjoyed the paradise of the Jersey Shore as well as traveling throughout the United States, to Poland and to other destinations abroad.

In addition to many friends, cousins and other relatives, she is survived by four nieces, one nephew, and many grand nieces and nephews. Throughout her life, she was a most loving and caring aunt, always keenly interested in each of their lives. She loved her family, her Polish heritage, and New York City. She loved Christmas. She loved to dance the Polka, and in 1952, she won first prize in a dance competition at Roseland Ballroom in NYC.

She was predeceased by two brothers, Joseph and Thomas, an infant sister, Louise, and a nephew, Thomas Dembia.

The family would like to express their deep gratitude and admiration for the individuals who gave such loving care and attention to Loretta over the past two years as well as for Kindred Hospice, who cared for her in her home during last few weeks.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday December 30, at 9:30AM at Saint Paul's RC Church, 200 Wyckoff Ave., Ramsey NJ. Committal will follow at Maryrest Cemetery, Mahwah, NJ. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Reilly Bonner Funeral Home in Belmar NJ. For further information or to send condolences to the family, please visit,
