Obituary of Delores Levine

Delores Levine, 86, of Carbondale, PA, died Saturday, February 12, 2022 at the Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore, PA, following a courageous battle with breast cancer. She is survived by her husband Joseph Levine. They would have celebrated 66 years of marriage this May.

Born January 13, 1936 in Mayfield, PA, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Anna Nester Romanyshyn.

Dolly was a caregiver her entire life to not only her family, but the community where she retired from the maternity floor and pharmacy at the Marian Community Hospital, Carbondale. Her life was her family and taking care of her home where she enjoyed planting flowers every year, cooking her famous matzo ball soup and Italian biscuits and having holidays spent with her family.

She and her husband always put others before themselves and never missed an activity or sporting event for their grandchildren no matter how far they needed to travel. They received an award at a banquet recognizing their true support to their grandchildren and their teams. Her passing leaves a giant void in her family and their hearts. She will also be missed by her dogs Barkley and Zsa Zsa.

Her family wishes to thank the doctors and staffs of the emergency room and fourth floor of the Moses Taylor Hospital, Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dr. Matthew Haley, Dr. Kristine Kelley and Dr. Padmaja Bojanapally for all of their compassionate care to Dolly.

She is also survived by two daughters: Nancy Washeleski of Carbondale, PA, and Carol Torch and husband, Andy of Carbondale, PA; one son: Steven Levine of Allentown, NJ; four grandchildren: Jeffrey Washeleski and fiancée, Bethany Flowers of West Chester, PA, Andrew Torch and wife, Sarah of Mountville, PA, Michael Torch of Carbondale, PA, and Alyssa Mosolino and husband, Phil of Carbondale, PA; two great grandchildren: Cameron Torch and Rory Mosolino and one sister: Jean Dzwonczyk.

She was preceded in death by two brothers: Michael and John Romanyshyn; four sisters: Mary Setta, Annie Motacki, Helene Brown and Lillian Stout; and a son-in-law: Joe Washeleski.
