Obituary

Dolores Marie McKenna passed away on May 4, born February 12, 1940. She grew up in Port Carbon, PA where she attended St. Stephen's Elementary School and then Nativity High School in Pottsville. A graduate of Millersville University, she taught for almost 4 decades at Tamaqua Elementary School, while living in Pottsville for most of her adult life. As a regular visitor to her sister Rosemary in Arizona, Dolores developed an abiding interest in the Navajo people and culture and took a sabbatical to teach on the Navajo Reservation, fulfilling a dream of a lifetime. Dolores spent the last years of her life living with her niece laurel Raczka in Philadelphia where she enjoyed attending arts and culture events.

She is survived by a brother Joseph McKenna of Pottsville; her sisters Georgene Selesky of Stroudsburg, PA; and Lenore Lorenc of Port Carbon, as well as a large extended family who will miss her very much. Dolores service will be private at the request of her family.
