Dionne M. Kle­back, 40, of Stowe, Pa., and a na­tive of Tay­lor, passed away Sun­day, Nov. 4.

Born in Scran­ton on Jan. 22, 1978, she was the beloved daugh­ter of Mary Cherra Kle­back and hus­band, John Dougherty, of Moosic, and Keith Kle­back and wife, Kim, of Tay­lor.

Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from River­side High School, Dionne con­tin­ued her ed­u­ca­tion at East Strouds­burg Univer­sity, earn­ing a de­gree in ho­tel and restau­rant man­age­ment. She was also pur­su­ing a mas­ter’s de­gree from Vil­lanova Univer­sity. She loved her var­i­ous man­age­ment po­si­tions in the ho­tels of the Philadel­phia area, and took pride in ev­ery job she did.

From her youth, Dionne was re­ferred to as “Nosey Rosey,” and as she grew, al­ways hav­ing “the scoop,” she right­fully earned the nick­name of “Bar­bara Wal­ters.” Dionne will al­ways be re­mem­bered by ev­ery­one who loved her not only for be­ing a royal pain in the you-know-what, but more im­por­tantly, for her end­less love and com­pas­sion, es­pe­cially for her pride and joy, her boys. She truly had a heart of gold that will shine on through them.

Dionne is sur­vived by her beloved sons, Chris­tian and Cory; and her long­time com­pan­ion, Randy Yo­com, of Stowe; her brother, Keith Kle­back and wife, Stacey, of Old Forge; her grand­par­ents, He­len and Joseph Cherra, of Tay­lor; her aunt and best friend, Jo Ann Lane, of Moosic; and many aunts, un­cles and cousins.

A cel­e­bra­tion of life and pri­vate bless­ing ser­vices were held by the Rev. Fran Landry, C.P., pas­tor of St. Ann Basil­ica Parish. Ar­range­ments were un­der the care of the Thomas P. Kear­ney Fu­neral Home Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge.

In lieu of flow­ers, me­mo­rial con­tri­bu­tions may be made in Dionne’s name to the Cather­ine Mcauley Cen­ter, 430 Pittston Ave., Scran­ton, PA 18505.
