Uniontown, Pa.

Dolores Ann Kotlar Roth, 83, the loving wife of 63 years to James Edgar Roth of Uniontown, passed away September 6, 2019.

She was born May 4, 1936 and is preceded in death by her parents, Stephen and Pauline Kotlar; her brother, Stephen Kotlar; sister, Gloria Kotlar; and daughter, Janet Potkul.

Words cannot describe the infinite love and light that Dolores gave to this world as a daughter, spouse, mother, grandmother and true friend in the most genuine, selfless and Christ-like manner. While her loss to those surviving is great, the Kingdom of Heaven rejoices in her triumphant return.

Although her love for her family was the center of her life, she also enjoyed an adventurous life traveling to many countries and exotic places with her beloved husband, Jim. As a matriarch, Dolores taught us how to be kind, generous, loving, forgiving, accepting and true.

Nothing can match the warmth of a holiday gathering with her home cooked turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, where everyone is welcome, and nobody is excluded. Nothing can replace sitting on the back porch, looking at the trees, watching the lightning bugs rise while talking about life. Nobody could be more deeply loved by so many. Nobody could make you feel more loved.

Dolores is survived by her husband, James Roth; brother, Fabian (Bobbi Jo) Kotlar; daughters, Debbie (Charles) Correal, Donna (Charles Jr.) Pecsko, Karen (Carl Sr.) Ciez; son, James (Carrie) Roth; grandchildren, Sarah (Scott) Daum, Casey (Andrew) Venturella, Emily Correal, Brian Potkul, Stephanie (Blake) Haskins, Charles (Maria) Pecsko III, Jessica (Paul) Gmutza, Michael James (Alexandria) Pecsko Sr., Carl Ciez Jr., Steven Ciez, Jordan (Chris) Lopez, Ireland (Mason) Cato, Liberty Roth, Lucy Roth, Jacob Roth; great-grandchildren, Sophia Daum, Cole Daum, Jude Venturella, Creed Potkul, Cyrus Potkul, Roman Haskins, Riley Haskins, Reese Haskins, Aubrey Pecsko, Charles Joseph Pecsko IV, Arabella Gmutza, Dean Gmutza, Michael James Pecsko Jr., Nelda Faye Lopez; her niece, Patty Lou Sypolt; and her favorite grand-doggie, Geno.

Friends will be received at the STEPHEN R. HAKY FUNERAL HOME, 603 North Gallatin Avenue Ext., Uniontown on Monday from 1 to 4 and 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday Prayers of Transfer 10:15 a.m. followed by a mass of Christian Burial at St. John the Evangelist Church, Jefferson Street, Uniontown at 11 a.m. Interment to follow at St. Mary's Cemetery, Uniontown.

The family would like to thank the staff at Monarch Meadow and Amedysis Home Care for the care given to her.
