Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Joanna Sorrento, age 62, of Lake Ariel, passed away early Wednesday morning at Hospice of the Sacred Heart Inpatient Unit, Dunmore, after a courageous battle with Ovarian Cancer.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, on February 9, 1952, daughter of the late Charles and Rose Rastrelli Sorrento, Joanna worked as a respiratory therapist for Regional Hospital of Scranton prior to her illness. She will be dearly missed by those who loved her.
She is survived by her loyal companion, Ron Soden of Olyphant; her daughters, Erika Wilson of Edwards, Colorado, and Karinda Sasser of Vale, Colorado; her sister, Valerie Sooy of Orange County, New York; two granddaughters, Layla Rose and Jonas Cash Sasser; and several other relatives, including her dear niece, Roseann Desanno.
Joanna’s loving and generous spirit will continue to touch lives. It was her desire that when she passed on her body was to be donated to the Commonwealth Medical College, a wish that was granted upon her death.
Memorial services to celebrate her life will be announced at a later date.
Her family would like to thank Dr. Richard Boulay and his entire staff at Lehigh Valley Hospital for the amazing care and compassion given to Joanna and her family.
With much gratitude for their collective comfort provided in a difficult time, memorial contributions are asked to be made in Joanna’s name to Hospice of the Sacred Heart’s Memorial Fund, 100 Williams Street in Dunmore, 18512.
Arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton.
