- About Us
Dolores M. (Brasko) Falbo, age 82, earned her angel wings and was taken to her heavenly home on Saturday, February 3, 2018 in her home surrounded by the love and prayers of her family. Dee had battled Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. Dee was born in Coraopolis on May 2, 1935 to the late Andrew and Margaret F. (Kezmarsky) Brasko. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by infant daughter the late Cynthia Lynne Falbo, and her brothers Robert and Alan Brasko.
“Dee” married the love of her life on May 12, 1956, John F. Falbo, who survives. They have enjoyed 62 wonderful years of marriage making their home in Coraopolis. They have four devoted children: Donna Louise (Jack) Heinlein of Louisville, KY, John Raymond (Lisa) Falbo of Moon Township, David Edward Falbo of Coraopolis, and Janet Marie Falbo of North Hills. She was so proud to have 9 grandchildren John H. Heinlein; Kaitlyn, Ryan, Taylor, Michael Falbo; Mallory Turk Swanson (Koty Swanson), Danielle Turk, Michael Turk; and Lauren Nicole Petersen. Dee was great grandma to Savannah, Addison and Alayna Swanson. She is also survived by her sister Kathie Brasko (Bob) Crowe of Cream Ridge, NJ.
Dee was a 1953 graduate of Coraopolis High School. She was an active member of St. Joseph Church and had a strong commitment to her faith. She was a member of Christian Mothers and Moon Township AARP. Dee was always up for a good time whether it be a trip to the casinos, cooking for friends, being high scorer of her bowling league or shopping at the outlets. Dee and John enjoyed wine making at their home and sharing their homemade wine with family and friends. Dee’s family was always top priority and she treated them like royalty. She loved when the family would gather, especially for the holidays. She always made everything special. Dee was energy. She loved people and loved to interact. She always had a merry twinkle in her eye. Dee, fit the term of a “lady” perfectly. This great lady will be missed. Please keep us all in prayer during our terrible time of loss.
