Delores “Dee” (Lahotsky) Blankenship, age 69, of Scranton, passed away Friday evening at home.
Born in Clarks Summit on December 18, 1950, and daughter of the late Gerald John Lahotsky, Sr. and Lorraine (Long) Weber, Dee was a graduate of Abington Heights High School, Class of 1968.
She ultimately moved to Scranton where she would go on to raise her three children. Regardless of any hardships she may have faced along the way, Dee always found a way to forge through adversity to provide and care for her family. Her selflessness will be her lasting legacy.
She also adored her grandchildren, loved spending time on the computer, and was arguably the biggest fan of the New York Mets. She will forever be missed by her family and friends.
She is survived by her loving family, three children, Brooke Blankenship and Mindy Lahotsky, both of Scranton, and Patrick Golden and fiance Megan of Dickson City; ten grandchildren; four great grandchildren; a brother, Gerald Lahotsky, Jr. and Rose of Throop; and nieces and nephews.
Brothers, Michael and Terry Lahotsky, also preceded her in death.

Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton, with a 10:00AM Mass of Christian Burial at Immaculate Conception Church, 801 Taylor Avenue in Scranton. Interment will follow at Cathedral Cemetery in Scranton.
Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Sunday, August 2nd, between 2-5:00PM at the funeral home.
