Born in Uniontown, Pa., on Aug. 22, 1925, she was the daughter of Joseph and Katherine Satanek.
Dorothy became the beloved wife of William Sereday when they married on Nov. 24, 1945.
For 50 years she was a seamstress, hardworking alongside her husband at Sonoff Dry Cleaners in Farrell, a family business still owned and operated by her eldest son and daughter-in-law.
Dorothy led a simple and meaningful life, largely due to being born and raised in the Church of God. She attended Chestnut Ridge Church of God and was a member of the Gideon's. Dorothy had a strong Slovak heritage. She was devoted to her friends and family and driven by her faith.
