Dorothy Rose Malott Kosiba, Petersburg Section of Scranton, died Saturday night in the Jewish Home of Eastern Pa.   She was the widow of Joseph J. Kosiba who died in 2002.

Surviving are a son Paul J. Kosiba of Scranton; a son in law Joseph Migliori of Scranton;  her two grandsons whom she loved dearly Mario Migliori and his wife Janette and Anthony Kosiba.

She was preceded in death by her daughter Joann Migliori.

The family would like to thank both the staff of the Jewish Home as well as Dr. Thomas Minora for the dedicated and compassionate care they provided Dorothy. 

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Wednesday at 10am in the Immaculate Conception Church, 801 Taylor Ave. Scranton.

Friends may call Wednesday morning from 9:30am until time of Mass at the church.
