Dorothy "Herk" A. Lisotto

April 21, 1940 ~ December 3, 2020 (age 80)


Dorothy A. “Herk” Lisotto 

Age 80, formerly of Aspinwall, passed away on Thursday, December 3, 2020 at Ephrata Manor, Ephrata, PA.  She was the beloved wife of the late Wayne D. Lisotto. 

She was a pediatric nurse at St. Francis Hospital (Pittsburgh) before starting a family.  She spent time volunteering as a Sunday school teacher for St. Scholastica Parish, enjoyed helping with Meals on Wheels, was always active in her community, and supported her children with everything they did.  Herk was an avid reader, and her children and husband referred to her as a wizard of crossword puzzles. She loved spending time with family, especially to cheer on all the Pittsburgh sports teams.  She will be missed and dearly remembered for her witty, caring, and loving nature as well as for the many lives she touched.

She was the loving mother of Michael (Rebecca) Lisotto, Pittsburgh; Robert (Alice) Lisotto, Pittsburgh; and Maria (Sam) Wolownik, Lititz, PA; cherished grandmother of Madison, Alex, Amanda, Douglas and Hunter; dear sister of the late Esther B. Adams.  Herk’s family would like to extend a special thank you to the entire staff at Ephrata Manor for the wonderful care and compassion shown to her.  

Visitation will be held on Thursday, December 10th, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at WEDDELL-AJAK FUNERAL HOME, 100 Center Avenue, Aspinwall, where a parting prayer will be held Friday, December 11th at 9:30 a.m. followed by a Christian Funeral Mass at 10 a.m. at St. Scholastica Church, 309 Brilliant Ave., Aspinwall. Please adhere to CDC guidelines of social distancing and masks are required. Friday's Christian Funeral Mass  will be live streamed on the Weddell-Ajak Funeral Home Facebook page for those who are unable to attend the Mass in person.  Interment will follow in Mt. Carmel Cemetery, Penn Hills.
