NEW MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Dolores Book enjoyed three years at Windsor Estates in New Middletown. She recently transferred to Parkside Health Care in Columbiana where she passed away on Saturday, July 4, 2020.
Dolores was born September 1, 1929 in Wampum, Pennsylvania. The daughter of the late Joseph and Sara Bessell Beatrice.
Upon completion of high school, she worked as a bookkeeper for Axes Market in New Castle.
In January 1952, she married the love of her life, Wayne L. Book. They raised four children in the home they built in Carbon, Pennsylvania. Her husband, Wayne, passed away in March 1997.
Dolores was a member of Edinburg and Hillsville Methodist Church. After the churches closed, she joined Bethel Friends Church in Poland.
She was a member of Mahoning Township Senior Citizens.
Dolores enjoyed baking, crocheting, playing pool, cards, bingo and watching NASCAR. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family.
She leaves behind three daughters, Crystal (Ed) Romack of Poland, Jill Hough of Canfield and Jody (Rocky) Sandora of Columbus; a son, Wayne G. Book of Carbon; five grandsons, Jason and Ben Romack, Eric and Shawn Hough and Rocky Sandora, Jr. and six great-grandchildren.
Her siblings preceded Dolores in death: sisters, Betty Gwin and Dorothy Stembal and brother, Joe Beatrice.
Due to the recent spikes with COVID-19, the family will not hold visitation or a service at this time. We hope to hold a Memorial Service at a later date.
Great appreciation for the love and care Mom has received from Windsor Estates and Parkside Health Care.
Arrangements by Terry A. Cunningham Funeral Home of Bessemer, Pennsylvania.
