Shank, Dorothy W.




Dorothy W. Shank (Walker), age 88 of Verona, PA, passed away peacefully on October 4, 2020. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Elder (Junior). Dorothy graduated from Verona High School in 1950. She then met the love of her life and married him in March of 1953. Dorothy and Junior lived a life of adventure, traveling all over the world for his job. She spoke fondly of their time living in countries such as Japan, Ireland, and Holland – but nothing compared to the home they built together in Verona. Though they didn’t have children of their own, Dorothy took great joy in showering love and affection on her nieces, nephews, and other loved ones. There was never a forgotten birthday, anniversary, or special occasion. That love also extended to several miniature schnauzers that were a very special part of their family over the years. Dorothy was a very social woman, who found great pleasure in playing bingo at local churches, shopping for herself and loved ones, and opening her heart and her home to everyone. She will be deeply missed by so many whose lives she touched over the years. Friends and family will be received on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 from 4-7 p.m. at the BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION & ALTERNATIVE SERVICES INC. 421 Allegheny Ave. Oakmont. A funeral service will be held at 7 p.m. in the funeral home at the conclusion of the visitation. Masks and social distancing required, no more than 25 people in the funeral home at a time. Private interment will take place in The Verona Cemetery, Oakmont.
