Dolores Yacapsin, 82, of Nesquehoning, entered into eternal rest Friday, August 16, 2019, in her residence after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer. Born in Nesquehoning, she was the daughter of the late John and Julia (Lazarick) Yacapsin. She was employed as an x-ray technician for the former Coaldale State Hospital, Coaldale and St. Luke’s Hospital, Bethlehem. She earned her real estate license and worked for Hugh D. Dugan Real Estate, finally retiring in 2001 from the Carbon County Redevelopment Department. She was a 1955 graduate of Nesquehoning High School and earned an associate’s degree in radiologic technology from Fitzgerald School of X-ray Technology. She was a member of the former St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, Nesquehoning and now a member of Immaculate Conception Church, Jim Thorpe. She was an avid cook and loved to experiment with new recipes and appliances. She was extremely grateful for her care team at St. Luke’s Interventional Radiology. Dolores cherished her family and loved spending time with them all.
Surviving are a brother Eugene Yacapsin and his wife Frances of Nesquehoning; a niece Susan McGorry; nephews John and Gene Yacapsin; and great nieces.
