Dorothy A. Yarrish , 86, of Avon, formerly of New Britain, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 17, 2016. Dorothy was born in Dickson City, PA, the daughter of the late John and Anna (Grzybowski) Yarrish. After growing up in New Britain, she was employed for many years at the Fafnir Bearing Company. She was proud of her Catholic faith and worshipped at Holy Cross Church in New Britain. Her family was her life's greatest passion and Dorothy's kind spirit embraced everyone who came into her home. She was especially proud of her grandson, Michael, who brought her many great years of memories and joy. She will always be remembered as a kind and generous mother and grandmother, and will be dearly missed every day. Dorothy is survived by her loving and caring companion, James Burks of New Britain; her two children, Christine Munoz and husband Cesar of Avon, and Leonard Kulesa and wife Bobi Currie of Tuscon, AZ; her adored grandson, Michael Munoz; her brother Arthur Yarrish of Medford, OR; and her furry friend Princess. She was predeceased by her two brothers, Karol Yarrish of Denver, CO, and Ronald Yarrish of North Carolina. Funeral arrangements for Dorothy are private.
