In memory of
Betty Bloss
Betty Bloss, 91, South Wilkes-Barre, passed away Monday, Jan. 11, 2021, in Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, following a lengthy illness. Born Elizabeth Regina Donlin on Dec. 2, 1929, in Wilkes-Barre, she was a daughter of the late Patrick and Mildred Hermit Donlin. She was a member of St. Robert Bellarmine Parish (formerly St. Aloysius Church), Wilkes-Barre, since birth and was a graduate of E.L. Meyers High School, Wilkes-Barre. Betty and her husband, Walter, were married on Aug. 20, 1949, by the Rev. M.J. Dacey. She was employed by People's Laundry and retired from Sea Isle Sportswear, both in Wilkes-Barre. Following retirement, she went to work part-time at Wilkes-Barre Vocational Technical Center, where she thoroughly enjoyed her time working in the kitchen and spoke highly of all the students and staff she met there. Betty will always be remembered as a woman who faithfully served her church. Wherever there was a need you would find her, whether it be supporting the many programs she was involved with, baking for the annual bazaar, selling tickets for church raffles or making her famous chocolate covered pretzels and other assorted candies. In addition to her parents, Betty was preceded in death by her husband, Walter Lawrence Bloss, in 1996; sister, Darlene Louise Donlin; and brother, Edward James Donlin. Betty will be greatly missed by her son, Walter L. Bloss III and wife, Meredith, Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.; grandchildren, Anneliese Bloss Petas, League City, Texas; Stephen Bloss, Torrance, Calif.; Brian Bloss, Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.; great-granddaughters, Madelynn and Katy Petas; brothers, Patrick Donlon, Kingston; Jack Donlin and wife, Carol, Dallas; sister-in-law, Mary Conrad, Wilkes-Barre; as well as many nieces and nephews. She was very proud of her family and adored seeing and talking to them via Skype. She especially loved being able to spend time with Madelynn and Katy and would talk about them quite often. The family wishes to express their thanks for the excellent care her nieces, Diane Mushal, Hunlock Creek, and Darlene Ashton, Kingston, provided to her during her illness. Betty was blessed to be residing with her brother, Patrick and niece, Darlene, in Kingston this past year. Betty's friends and neighbors will miss her smile and the many conversations which took place between them. She sincerely appreciated everything they've done for her throughout the years. Funeral services with a Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday in St. Robert Bellarmine Parish, 143 W. Division St., Wilkes-Barre. Interment will follow in St. Mary's Cemetery, Hanover Twp. Arrangements were entrusted to Daniel J. Hughes Funeral & Cremation Service, Wilkes-Barre.
