Dorothea’s final words which she wanted to share with her loved ones and friends:
“I had a wonderful life, filled with many blessings. My Italian immigrant parents provided us with a beautiful home and loving
family. We lived almost across the street from our parish, St. Anthony’s in a friendly neighborhood on Cushing Street in Fredonia, NY.
I had a wonderful education and loved my nursing profession and work. I enjoyed all of my friends and cherished the experiences we enjoyed together. What fun we had! How I enjoyed ballroom dancing!
I loved my three sons, Gregory, Jeffrey, and Christopher. They were the joy and heart of my life. I was so proud.
God bless all! I look forward to peace with Him. Amen. Dorothea F. (Schibetta) Janczak.”
