Lorraine Rafalko

Lorraine J. (Folta) Rafalko, 82, of Clarks Summit, died Tuesday in Geisinger Community Medical Center. She was the widow of Leonard W. Rafalko, who died May 20, 2013. The couple was married more than 49 years, just shy of their 50th wedding anniversary.

She lived in Clarks Summit since 1972, having moved from Scranton. A graduate of Dickson City High School, she formerly was employed by Samter Bros., Scranton, in the office as an administrator.

A loving and devoted wife and mother, she was dedicated to her family. She cherished her children. She enjoyed crossword puzzles and watching cooking shows. Her gentleness will be sadly missed.

Surviving are a son, Leonard W. Rafalko II, Raleigh, N.C.; two daughters, Janine Rafalko (James Hoffman), Frederick, Colo.; and Leane Rafalko Lesniewski (Mark), Raleigh, N.C.
