Obituary of Dolores Maruca
Dolores J. Maruca passed away peacefully Monday, May 9, 2022 at the home of her son and daughter-in-law with family by her side. Dolores was born June 15, 1930, raised in Nanticoke, PA and moved to Hamilton Twp, NJ upon her marriage to Benjamin Maruca. In addition to homemaking and motherhood, Dolores enjoyed a dedicated 30-year career to St Francis Medical Center. Upon retirement, she filled her days helping care for her grandchildren, attending countless sporting events and dance recitals as a proud nana involved in each of their milestones. As far back as her children can remember, one of her favorite things was going out for breakfast or lunch. She continued that love with her grandchildren, never declining an invitation to be with them.
Dolores took extreme pride in her gardening and was thrilled to receive a mayoral recognition for her contribution to residential beautification in Hamilton Township. She regularly attended and was active in several senior clubs, developing special friendships along the way. She even brought “bingo calling skills” from the senior club to our family holiday celebrations thus, adding many happy memories to those events.
Dolores was predeceased by her husband, Benjamin and son, Benard, as well as her parents, Edward and Alice (Levanda) Sadowski and siblings, Mary, Irene, Gloria and Alvin. She is survived by her daughter Debra McMire and son-in-law Loren, son Warren and daughter-in-law Audrey, son David and daughter-in-law Judith and grandchildren Anthony, Annamarie, Domenic, Jessica, Jennifer and Michael, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Visitation will be from 9 to 11 AM on Saturday, May 14, 2022 at Kingston and Kemp Funeral Home, 260 Whitehorse Avenue, Hamilton, NJ with a funeral service at 11 AM.
Interment will follow at St Mary’s Cemetery, 1200 Cedar Lane, Hamilton, NJ.
