Dorothy Horniak, 88, formerly of Economy Borough passed away peacefully on October, 3 2020 in the Good Samaritan Hospice Beaver, surrounded by her loving family.  She was currently residing in Franciscan Manor.  Dorothy was born January 29, 1932 in Ambridge to the late Walter and Leonora Moss Himme.  She worked at Macy’s for 47 years where she was well known and loved by everyone.  She was a member of Good Samaritan Church in Ambridge, loved vacationing to Florida and laying at the beach, playing bingo, gambling, bowling, shopping, and spending time with her kids and grandkids.  Preceding her in death in addition to her parents were her son, Gary Horniak, a sister, Ann Eckert and her brother, Ray Himme.  We know they were all waiting at heaven’s gates greeting her with open arms.  She is survived by her loving husband of 68 years, Frank Horniak, sister Rose Delcourte, 2 daughters and son-in-laws, Karen & Bill Prest of Freedom, and Jan & Sam Aloi of South Beaver Twp., 7 grandchildren, and 18 great grandchildren.  She touched so many lives during her 88 years on Earth and will be missed greatly.  Visitations will be held on Tuesday from 4-8 PM in the John Syka Funeral Home Inc. 833 Kennedy Drive, Ambridge.  Due the Covid 19 pandemic restrictions, only 25 people are permitted in the funeral home at a time which includes the immediate family.
