Lorraine Janus Srebro, 93, of Dickson City died peacefully on Saturday, January 22, 2022 at her son’s home at Chapman Lake.  She was the wife of the late Henry F. Srebro, who passed away in 2015. They were married for 57 years.

Born and raised in Dickson City, daughter of the late Walter and Catherine Mahalik Janus, she was a graduate of Dickson City High School, class of 1945, and Scranton Lackawanna Business College.  Prior to retirement, she was a proud partner with her brothers, Walter and Leonard, in the family grocery store, Janus Market in Dickson City.

Having a great devotion to her church and faith, she was a dedicated member of St. Adalbert’s Polish National Catholic Church in Dickson City, where she was a long-time member of the Lutnia Choir and its committee. She also served on the Parish Committee and the Polish National School Society and was active with many of the church’s activities.  Lorraine also served as a branch secretary for the Polish National Union of America for over 20 years.

Desiring to do her part for her country and the war effort, Lorraine volunteered with the Red Cross Canteen Service which provided food and other comfort items to the local men as they shipped out from the Scranton Armory to World War II.  She was also a 10+ gallon blood donor for the American Red Cross and was an annual fund enroller for the Dickson City Ambulance Association. She enjoyed organizing many of her high school reunions as well as participating with friends at the Dickson City Senior Center.

Lorraine’s beautiful smile always lit up the room, and her ethic to work hard was immeasurable along with her commitment, dedication and compassion. She was a sweet, wonderful person with a heart of gold who was always concerned for others. She made everyone feel special and loved and was instantly beloved by anyone who came to know her.

She is survived by two sons, both of Scott Township: Kenneth Srebro and life partner, Denise Kroptavich, and David Srebro; sister Joann Reed and husband, Michael, Bethlehem; sister-in-law, Elaine Janus, Dickson City; grandchildren: Kendra Srebro, Brooklyn, NY; and Max Srebro, Dickson City; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by a son, Richard Srebro, in 2012; brothers: Walter Janus, and Leonard Janus & his wife Gerry; daughter-in-law, Rebecca Flannery Srebro; as well as all of her husband’s siblings and their spouses: Frank & Frances, Peter & Pearl, Sophie & Michael Begey, and Joseph & Regina.

Lorraine’s funeral will be Thursday, Jan. 27, at 9:30 am from the Frank T. Mazur Funeral Home, Dickson City, with Mass at St. Adalbert’s PNCC at 10 am. Friends may call Wednesday evening at the funeral home from 5 to 8 pm, with a Christian wake service at 7 p.m. Consider honoring Lorraine through her example by extending a helping hand or doing an act of kindness for someone else.  Memorial contributions, in her name, can be made to the endowment fund of St. Adalbert’s PNCC, 515 Mary St., Dickson City, PA 18519.
