Dorothy Fedoronko Leimone, age 101, of Burgaw passed peacefully from her earthly life on October 13, 2017 at Pender Memorial Hospital.
She was born March 6, 1916 in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, the daughter of John and Eva Polny Fedoronko. In addition to her parents Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Mario Leimone; her daughter, Patricia Cowan and brothers, Joe, Mike, Jerry and Walter Fedoronko.
Dorothy is survived by her daughter, Judy L. Williams (Whrens); son-in-law, Wayne Cowan; grandchildren, Michelle Cowan Huffman (Jason), Jennifer Cowan Holland (Paul), Melissa Cowan, Karen Burton (Davis), and Kristi Turlington (Jimmy); five great grandchildren; one great great granddaughter; sisters, Anne Kowal, Olga Lytwak (Edward “Ed”) and Helen Sklarsky; and many extended family and friends.
Dorothy lived a long and blessed life as a devoted wife, loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She was a gracious lady who loved cooking, gardening, bingo and cards. But most of all, she loved spending time with family and friends. Dorothy was a shining example of caring for family regardless of convenience and circumstance and for this, we will forever be grateful.
Graveside service will be 11:00 a.m. on Monday, October 16, 2017 at St. Helena Cemetery with The Rev. Will Davis conducting the service.
The family would like to sincerely thank the Skilled Nursing Unit Staff at Pender Memorial Hospital, as well as those who faithfully visited Dorothy for their unwavering care and friendship over the last few years.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to N.H.R.M.C. Foundation, 2001 S. 17th. St., Wilmington, NC 28401 for the Pender Memorial Hospital Skilled Nursing Unit.
