Wanda (Dolmayer) Hurst, 79, of New Kensington, peacefully passed Wednesday morning, Jan. 16, 2019, surrounded by family, after a long, steadfast battle with multiple myeloma. She was born March 2, 1939, in Freeport, to Michael and Stella Dolmayer (Wesolosky). After graduating Freeport High School (1957), she attended Citizens School of Nursing to become an RN in 1961. On Jan. 27, 1962, she married her husband of 47 years, John B. Hurst. Together, they spent the following four years living abroad in El Salvador and England, creating friendships that would last a lifetime, before ultimately moving back to the States to be near family and beginning her lifelong career at Citizens General Hospital in New Kensington. As an operating room nurse at Citizens, she was known for bringing peace and comfort to those in times of greatest uncertainty. She cherished the family of peers she worked with there. Throughout life, she enjoyed traveling through the States and Europe. She loved time spent with her children and grandchildren, and was drawn to the arts of cross-stitch, sewing and baking. She was prolific with her stitching and carried the theme through life. Like the many fibers that created her work, she stitched loose threads through the family to bring people together. Her handcrafted gifts will always hold her memory. She was preceded in death by her husband, John "Jack" Hurst; and siblings, Michael, Jack, Tom and Patricia (Steele) Dolmayer. She is survived by her three children, Cynthia (Daniel) Krowsoski, John (Laura) Hurst and Michael (Michele) Hurst; eight grandchildren, Bethany and Joe Krowsoski, Brittany Carlyle (Hurst), Emily, Heather and Jonathan Hurst and Michael and Madison Hurst; and her great-granddaughter, Annabeth Carlyle. In addition, she is survived by her much-beloved brother, Henry (Jody) Dolmayer; and many nieces and nephews. No public viewings will be held and burial is private. Letters or notes of consolation and support can be mailed to her family---and in lieu of any gifts, the family asks that donations be made to Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital.

To Michael, John, Cindy and families, I just learned of your mother's passing and want to extend my deepest sympathies and condolences. I spent a lot of time at the house growing up next door and have nothing but great memories of your mother and father. I remember Cinders chasing you car when you guys left in the Gremlin hatchback down the road then your parents having to return home to put Cinders in the house. Mrs. HURST, a great, caring person/neighbor and a wonderful mother and grandmother!!!

I am so sorry to hear about Wanda. She was a year behind me at Freeport HS. My family and the Dolmayer family were friends as we were growing up . I will remember her fondly.......as I think about some of the good times we spent at Mike and Stella home.

To the Family:
Very sorry for your loss. It is a time like this that we can turn to the promises found at Isaiah 33:24 and John 5:25 to find comfort, strength and hope. We long to see their fulfillment soon.

To the Family. Our sympathy. Know that God feels your pain as evident by Jesus when he wept for this friend, Lazarus. See John 11:33-44; John 5:28.
