Mrs. Dolores E. (Samolewicz) Andriano , 86, of Blandon, passed away surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday morning, October 6, 2020 at her home.
Born August 24, 1934 in Elizabeth, NJ, she was the daughter of the late Frank and Lillie Mae (Mauko) Samolewicz. She and her husband of 65 years, Ralph A. Andriano, were married on January 30, 1955 in Newark, NJ.
Dolores graduated from Battin High School, Elizabeth, NJ and went on to work as a secretary for Weston Instruments, Newark, NJ, which is where she met the love of her life, Ralph. She was a member of Fleetwood Bible Church and, formerly, a longtime member of Emmanuel Pentecostal Church, Elizabeth, NJ.
Dolores loved shopping, especially on QVC. She enjoyed autumn and word games, and truly enjoyed Italian pastries. Everyone in her family knew that if a birthday cake had a rose on it, it was reserved for Dolores. More than anything, Dolores adored her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
In addition to her husband, Ralph, Dolores is survived by her two daughters, Deborah L. (Andriano) Lynch-Jenkins, wife of David J. Jenkins, Fogelsville and Robin G. (Andriano) Leisher, wife of Dirk E. Leisher, Fogelsville. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Noelle and Jason, Jonathan and Payton, Shaun, Tyler, Reilly, Heather and Jacob, and by her great-grandchildren, Jackson, Ethan, Gavin and Rocky.
Along with her parents, Dolores was preceded in death by her great-grandson, Fordham Rolon, and by her sisters, Lillian McClellan, Linda Espina and Doris Shea.
