Obituary for Loretta C. Zilker

Loretta C. Zilker, 85, of Mahanoy City, PA, passed away peacefully at her home on Monday June 18, 2018.
Born in Shenandoah, April 30, 1933, she was the daughter of the late Victor J. and Cassie (Skonieczny) Bykowsky.
She worked at several local garment factories. She was a parishioner of Saint Teresa of Calcutta Parish, Mahanoy City. She was a life member of the Park Crest Fish and Game Association.
She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and teaching them the old school way of life. She was very passionate about cooking, baking, and jarring. Anyone who was fortunate enough to have some of her food, knew it was the best. As an avid wrestling fan, she enjoyed local and professional wrestling venues. She will be remembered by many for her outspoken and quick-witted personality.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Leon E. Zilker in 2003.
Surviving are her two sons: Leon P., husband of Meredith and Kevin, husband of Sherry. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Brady, Aiden, Madelyn, Noah, and Ryan. Nieces and nephews.
She was especially grateful for her nephew, Edward Bykowsky and his wife Helene, and her caring neighbors, Mark and Elaine Fowler.
