De­cem­ber 7, 1936 - Septem­ber 20, 2019

Dolores A. Luk­ish, the beloved wife of Thomas J.

Luk­ish, SR., en­tered her fi­nal rest­ing place in Heaven on Septem­ber 20, at 4:09 pm sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily in the Le­high Val­ley Hos­pi­tal in Al­len­town, PA. Dolores had a heart at­tack and her bod­ily sys­tems did not re­spond to treat­ment. She passed away peace­fully. She and her hus­band Tom met in high school, fell in love and were mar­ried for over 60 years. It was a mar­riage filled with un­end­ing love and won­der­ful mem­o­ries, to be cher­ished for­ever. She was the love of his life.

Dolores was a grad­u­ate of Al­len­town Cen­tral Catholic High School, and a grad­u­ate of Al­len­town Sa­cred Heart Nurs­ing School as a Nurse RN. She was a very ded­i­cated nurse and loved her pro­fes­sion. She was a vol­un­teer school nurse at her chil­dren’s ele­men­tary grade school and loved car­ing for the young chil­dren. Her love and beau­ti­ful per­son­al­ity en­deared her not only to the chil­dren but also to the school ad­min­is­tra­tion. She was pre­sented with a life­time recog­ni­tion at a cer­e­mony when she re­tired af­ter her chil­dren had grad­u­ated. In ad­di­tion to be­ing a won­der­ful lov­ing mother and wife, she later be­came an In­dus­trial Nurse with a ma­jor cor­po­ra­tion and prac­ticed her skills for many years. Above and be­yond all her pro­fes­sional ac­com­plish­ments, she loved her fam­ily and gave them deep and un­end­ing love her en­tire won­der­ful life. Her life epit­o­mized fam­ily love and un­selfish ded­i­ca­tion to be­ing a wife, mother, grand­mother and great grand­mother. To her grand­chil­dren, she was lov­ingly called Didi. She loved that name. Her memory and her love of life will never be for­got­ten.

She was pre­de­ceased by her par­ents, Arthur and Amelia (Guar­ente) Scott. She was pre­de­ceased by her sis­ter Roseanne (Scott) Pletz and her hus­band Ron­ald. She is sur­vived by the love of her life, hus­band Thomas J. Luk­ish SR., her chil­dren; son Thomas James Luk­ish
