Dorothy J. Kaisoglus left this earth Sunday, May 3. Mom was cared for by "Sweet Angels of Mercy" at Berks Heim for the last three years; and the family will be forever grateful for the quality of her care.

Mom lived almost 95 years and during that time she had to say good bye to her Parents, Husband Charles, Daughter Joann, six Brothers and one Sister. Each time she suffered in silence yet remained a beacon of hope for the rest of us to carry on.

Mom was the matriarch of the family. Mom was "tough as nails", quoting her family doctors, surviving several medical traumas only to chide us “to keep on moving”. Mom was an exceptional cook who willingly "set another place at the table" for whomever dropped in unexpectedly for a meal. Mom had a very strong faith that she never tried to impose on anyone. Mom will be forever missed by Daughter Dorothy A. Straka and Husband Edward of Pennside, Son John and Wife Donna of Nebo N.C., Son-In-Law Terry Calhoun of Flying Hills, as well as six Grandchildren, eight Great grandchildren and two Great Great grandchildren. All will recall Nana peeling oranges for them on the front porch on a warm summer day in the city. Nana made memories to last a lifetime with each of us.

And our sincerest thanks to Mom's "adopted" son, Chaplain Kerry, for his spiritual guidance and compassion.

Using Cuz'n Ed's familiar refrain we all say, "Bye for now, Mom."

Sending Mom to her reunion with Dad and Joann with lyrics from Vince Gill, Go Rest High on that Mountain.

I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

Go rest high on that mountain
Mom, your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a-shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son

A private Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Catharine of Siena R.C.C. Chapel followed by a private interment at Gethsemane Cemetery. Lutz Funeral Home, Inc. is in charge of arrangements. For online condolences, please visit

My condolences to you, John, and also to Donna, with whom I enjoyed our high school years. John, you and I shared many years in the HR profession through the local SHRM chapter. My sympathy goes out to you in this difficult time. I still recall with vivid memories my own Mother's passing, and I still have a warm place in my heart for her. I'm sure you and Donna will treasure your Mother's memory. May she rest in peace.

What can I say about an amazing grandmother. I truly enjoyed spending time with you from my childhood to adult life. Your cooking was always SOOO very yummy. But the best part was made with love. Nana also watched her great-grandson Blake while he was in elementary school when I worked at the library. It always made me happy knowing he was in such good hands. I remember taking nana and her side kick Jean aka Thelma and Louise for lunch every Sunday. She sure loved her "greasy food." She would always say, regular food makes me
When nana had her fall and ended up at Berks Heim, it tore me up, however she was looked after with lots of love. I looked forward to seeing her every weekend there. She always had her wits about her and "watched" others...especially while eating.
Since her passing, I know she is with more rest for him! Also, I'm sure she and Jean will be doing drive bys checking in on their family....soar with the doves nana...Love you
