I have been privileged to know Dorothy for many years. My sympathy to her family. May she rest in peace Evelyn
Mrs.Sobolewski knew my parents for many, many years through St. Joseph’s Church and became very close friends. I knew her my entire life and have had the very great privilege of having her as my Godmother.
She never missed a birthday or Christmas card, and I always knew she was thinking and praying for me. I am so very grateful she and Mr. Sobolewski were able to attend my wedding 3 and a half years ago.
Thank you for all your prayers and encouragement throughout the years.
You will be missed but will always be in my prayers.
Dear Lou and the Sobolewski Family,
You are close in my thoughts and prayers these days. During my years at St. Joseph, I was the recipient of your kindness, friendliness and trust, Lou and Dorothy. In the name of all BVM Sisters who were entrusted with the education of your children, we are sorry for your great loss.
Sr. Eileen Powell, BVM
Dear Thomas and Stephanie,
