Ruth (Dolly) E. Yavorski

March 16, 1943 - June 1, 2019

Ruth E. (Dolly) Yavorski, age 76, of West Scranton, passed away Saturday at Moses Taylor Hospital in Scranton. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 40 years, Chester Yavorski, Sr., on April 24, 2001.
A lifelong resident of Scranton, Ruth was born on March 16, 1943. Daughter of the late Alexander and Jeanette (McClemens) Dayfert, she was educated at the former North Scranton High School. A lifelong seamstress, she retired from Supermarket Services of Dunmore as well as owning and operating her catering business, ‘Country Cousins Catering.’ She was also a lifelong member of the Asbury United Methodist Church.
For many years, Ruth was an avid bowler while playing in several local leagues. Having completed countless jig-saws, she always enjoyed her puzzles. Above all else was her love for her seven grandchildren.
Passing away unexpectedly, Ruth will forever be loved by her family and friends.
She is survived by her loving children, Dr. Chester (Chet) Yavorski, M.D. and wife Sandra of Shavertown, Debra Thomas of Newfoundland and Patricia Fontini and husband Mark of West Scranton, with whom Ruth resided; her sister-in-law, Peg Dayfert of Lockport, N.Y.; and seven adoring grandchildren.
Her brother, Jack Dayfert; and her pup, “Happy”, also preceded her in death.
Blessing services are scheduled for Saturday at 10:00AM at the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton. Burial will follow at the Cathedral Cemetery.
Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Friday between 4-7:00PM at the funeral home.
