Lorraine Stempniak, 95, of Dickson City, died on Friday, September 23, 2022, at home.

Born in Dickson City, she was the daughter of the late Andrew and Lottie Lukasewicz Stempniak, and she was a lifelong, and devout member of St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City. She was a graduate of Dickson City High School, and prior to retirement, she was employed as a seamstress in the local garment industry.

Born on the Fourth of July Quiche Lorraine was destined to be a firework of hope and light. She always took care of her friends and family and expected nothing in return. She loved fashion and the beauty salon almost as much as she loved God and the church. She never let you leave without a small gift. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. It’s not goodbye it’s see you later.  Lorraine’s family would like to offer a special thank you to Sue and Dale Russell, and Michelle Venesky.

Surviving are her caregivers, nieces, Jennifer Farrar, and Traci Sorak, niece, Debra Webb, nephew, Edward R. Stempniak, niece, Tami Santagato, nephew, Edward Stempniak; great great nieces and nephews; an Aunt Barbara; and numerous cousins.

She was preceded in death by brothers, Edward J. Stempniak, and Carl Stempniak, and a nephew, Ryan Webb.

The funeral will be Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. from the Frank T. Mazur Funeral Home, Inc., 601 Dundaff St., Dickson City with a mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. in St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City.

You were the true Matriarch of the family. A beautiful Queen. Just hours before we spoke and you kept reassuring me a miracle was going to happen for me. One did. I was given you as a great~aunt!❤ You taught me family first, respect and carry yourself with dignity and your head up! Not to mention to always be dressed properly for any occasion. It's how you carry yourself...You were the epitamy of grace and confidence. Will miss your lessons of life.

I am so sad we won't get to talk again on just about every weekend. We would laugh, go down memory lane, and you never failed to give me the weather report for Dickson and ask how is the weather in Conshy! I will truly miss ending our calls with "I love you, Lorraine"...."Thank you". Sissy

Aunt Lorraine/Godmother I will always remember how elegant you always were, not just from a style stand point but how you always carried yourself with such grace. Your amazing filled cookies, you never forgot us during every holiday by sending a card or gift. My last conversation you said please take care of yourself and know you did a great job with your Dad. Give Daddy a big hug for me as I know you will be with all of our family now. Love you Lisa & Aidrian
