Wife of the late John Fitzurka; mother of the late John Vicinsky (Mary Bernadette), and the late Ronald Vicinsky; grandmother of Jennifer (Jeffrey) Ashley, Michael Vicinsky (Kate Muirhead), and Deborah Vicinsky (John Jasper); sister of the late Samuel Kosanovich, Della Gleva, Mary Kosanovich, Zora Reith, Mileva Mirchich, Helen Wagner, and Anna Kraus; aunt of Mildred (Bob) Hess, Sam (Jeannine) Kosanovich, Donna Trynauer, Joanne Trussell, Roberta Fedor, Pat Chilton, and many more; cherished friend of Rose Marie and John Chalovich. Dorothy was a kind and caring person who was always ready to help whenever and wherever needed. She was a highly praised cook, and her baked goods were renowned amongst her family and friends. Dorothy enjoyed traveling to the casino with her friends and playing the slots. While a conservative player, she managed to win every now and then, and she would often remark in recent years, “Nothing ever hurts me when I'm in there.” Her greatest accomplishment was family. She was proud of her sons and grandchildren, and she celebrated every success they had. Dorothy will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege of sharing in her life. Family and friends will be received on Monday, September 11, 2017, from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the JEFFERSON MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME, INC., 301 Curry Hollow Road, Pittsburgh, 15236. A Blessing Service will follow in the funeral home chapel. Condolences may be left at
