Dorothy Toton Markiewicz, 92, formerly of Blakely, passed away peacefully at her daughter’s home on the afternoon of July 23, 2020.  Her husband was the late John Markiewicz.

Born October 6. 1927 in Blakeley, PA, she was the daughter of the late John and Frances (Sowenski) Toton.  Dorothy graduated from Blakely High School at age 16. She immediately began working as a seamstress to help support her family. After her marriage to John, she assumed the role of devoted housewife but held an array of various jobs, most recently Eureka Printing in Jessup, PA.

Dorothy was a lifelong member of St. Adalbert’s Polish National Catholic Church, Dickson City and was very involved in their activities – whether it be making pierogi or working the summer picnics! She was also very involved in The Polish National Union of America.

Dorothy always kept herself busy! She was an avid quilter and her creations were warmly welcomed at baby showers. She loved organizing bus trips to the local casinos, making puzzles, watching Jeopardy!  and she never met a stray cat that she did not love.

Dorothy had a special place in her heart for her children and grandchildren and loved nothing more than to spend time with them. She is survived by her children: John Markiewicz and wife Kay, Susan Faragasso and husband Anthony; brother: Thomas Toton and wife Joyce; sister: Michaeline Pane; grandchildren: Eden Kottke and husband Marcel, Jonah Markiewicz and wife Mirna, James Markiewicz and wife Hannah, Dr. Gabrielle Faragasso, and Anthony Faragasso; great-grandchildren: Max Kottke, Lorelei Kottke, and Andrew Markiewicz.

She is preceded in death by her brother Joseph Toton and sisters Josephine Toton, Florence Mondro, Mildred Mayorowski, and Janet Neyman.

Her family wishes to thank all of the wonderful staff at Hospice of the Sacred Heart for the wonderful care provided to Dorothy.

A private celebration will be held for family on Monday, July 27, 2020, at St. Adalbert’s Polish National Catholic parish cemetery, Dickson City, PA.
