Lottie Wojtasczyk

Lottie Wojtasczyk, 93, of Yorktown passed away at home on Saturday, Oct. 30. She was born Feb. 1, 1928, in Cestohowa to the late Bruno and Rufina Sczepanik Kyrish. Lottie was a lifelong member of Holy Cross Catholic Church. She worked at the Yorktown Memorial Hospital for many years as a nurse’s aide. Once the hospital closed, she worked at the ‘Our House Assisted Living’ facility and the Yorktown Nursing Home. She was very proud to live in her own home and loved her flowers in her yard and ‘ tchotchkes’ (nick-nacks) that she collected. Lottie enjoyed being around her family as well as her cat, Prissy.

She is also survived by her great-grandchildren Cody (Liz) Montes, Andrew Montes, Lincoln Wiggins, Ella Wiggins and great-great-grandson Mason Montes.

She is preceded in death by her late husband Benard Wojtasczyk, her parents, and several siblings.

Pallbearers are Nathan Gathright, Kris Wiggins, Cody Montes, Andrew Montes, Ken Krause and Roel Chacon. Honorary pallbearers are Scott Holter and Wayne Gathright.

Memorials may be given to Holy Cross Catholic Church, Alzheimer’s Association or donor’s choice.
