Delores F. “Lori” Konchar, 81, of Forest City, died Wednesday at the Regional Hospital of Scranton.
Born in Carbondale, she was the daughter of the late Anthony J. and Louise M. Krouse Konchar. Lori loved all things colorful, be it jewelry, cards, or little kid toys. Her favorite pastime was shopping at Tractor Supply, Big Lots, and Dollar General with her caregiver, Dawn. She enjoyed going on rides with Dawn on warm, sunny days. Lori had many favorite times, be it dinner at her favorite restaurants: McDonnell’s at the park, BK, and Alexander’s to dinner at her nephew Ken’s house. She loved visiting her sister Evelyn and brother-in-law Gene in New Jersey and spending time with her great nephew Kyle and her great niece Lauren. She always left a bright spot wherever she visited, and she was doted on by many family members and friends throughout the years.
The family would like to thank our care coordinator Courtney from the Area Agency on Aging in Susquehanna County for helping supply Delores with the “at home” services she needed; the family would also like to thank the nurses and doctors who helped Delores during her abrupt illness.
Surviving are a sister: Evelyn L. Ponzini and husband Eugene E., Barnegat, NJ; 5 nephews: Anthony T. Konchar and wife Liz; David P. Konchar; John P. Konchar; Michael M. Konchar and wife Sally; Kenneth S. Konchar and wife Dawn; and a niece: Elizabeth A. Konchar.
She was also preceded in death by a brother: Anthony W. Konchar.
The funeral will be Saturday in the Brennan & Brennan Funeral Home, Inc., 55 Lincoln Avenue, Carbondale with a blessing service at 3 pm. Spring interment, St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Forest City. Friends may call Saturday, from 1 to 3 pm. Those attending the funeral are asked to wear colorful clothing to help celebrate Lori’s life.
