Carlisle- Dolores V. Kramkowski, 80, of Crommie Road died peacefully on Thursday, September 20, 2018, surrounded by her family in the comfort of her home.

Born January 1, 1938 in Greenport, Long Island, she was the daughter of Watson T. and Stefny (Berkoski) Dobec.

Dolores married Robert S. Kramkowski on May 6, 1956 and they raised their family in Southold.  She worked in the medical billing department at Greenport Hospital for many years.  Prior to that, she was a professional cake baker and decorator, making thousands of wedding and birthday cakes without ever dropping a one or having it collapse.  Dolores and Bob retired and moved to Carlisle in 2001.

She was a communicant at St. Vincent de Paul Church where she served as Eucharistic minister.  Dolores was a member of Central Bridge Seniors, serving as past president, and Carlisle Seniors where she held the offices of president and treasurer, as well as a member of the Carlisle Fire Department Auxiliary.

In her leisure time, she kept busy woodcarving, wood burning, painting, needlework and crocheting.  In her later years, Dolores mastered playing the fiddle, mandolin and keyboard.  She was a member of Adirondack Fiddlers and Mohawk Valley Art and Wood Carving Association.

Cherishing her memories are her husband, Robert Kramkowski of Carlisle; three children:  Robert A. (Christine) Kramkowski of St. Louis, MO, Randal (Robin) Kramkowski of Warriors Mark, PA, and Joanne Maher of Rotterdam; her sister, Caroline (Jon) Chuzi of Kingston; her brother, Richard (Joan) Dobec of Wooster, OH; nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; and her dear friend, Carolyn Lawyer.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:30 AM on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018 at St. Vincent de Paul Church, 138 Washington Ave., Cobleskill with Father Jeffrey L’Arche as celebrant.  Family and friends are also invited to a period of visitation to be held at the church from 4 to 6PM on Monday, Sept. 24, 2018.  Burial will be in St. Vincent de Paul Cemetery, Cobleskill.
