On March 11, 2022, Teresa Dorothy “Dot” Gostomski (nee: Schultz), went to heaven peacefully. Beloved wife of the late John F. Gostomski; Devoted mother to Mary D. Andersen (Thomas), John D. Gostomski, Francis S. Gostomski, Sr. (Kimberly) and Kenneth E. Gostomski (Jennifer); Dear sister to Margaret DiPasquale; Loving grandmother to Mary E. Andersen, Michael T. Andersen, Francis S. Gostomski, Jr., Jonathan D. Andersen, Joshua K. Gostomski (Madelyn), Alan M. Mullaney, Ashley N. Darr (Michael), Kelsey R. Gostomski and Faith E. Gostomski. Great Grandmother of Lilith, Kaylee, Hunter, Giovanna, Michael, Ryder, Theodore, Mikey, Daisy, Connor and Casper.
Born to Harry and Mary Schultz, the fifth of seven children (Harry, Charles, Catherine, James and Jerome deceased). Dorothy grew up in Highlandtown, attended Saint Elizabeth of Hungary Church and grade school. She graduated from the Saint Elizabeth School of Business in 1943.
After the death of her husband, she continued to work as a manager for First National Bank of Maryland (M&T), retiring in 1990. Dorothy was always part of Saint Clement Mary Hofbauer parish but after leaving First National she became much more active. Daily Sacrifice of the Mass became an integral part of her life. She recommitted herself to the Lord in prayer and devotions. Her commitment was expressed in other ways such as Sodality, singing with the Resurrection Choir, teaching religious education (First Holy Communion, Confirmation), making rosaries, visiting the sick and shut-in members of the parish and bringing hope and happiness to them. She also served as the Saint Clement Sacristan, retiring in December 2014.
Dorothy became a member of the Third Order of St. Francis of Assisi (Secular Franciscans), making her profession in October of 2002.
Making Thanksgiving and Christmas meals was something she really loved to do. There were at least 6 different types of cookies on the table every Christmas, not to mention the pies. Every August meant at least one trip to Susquehanna Orchards to pick up fruit. It would be difficult to estimate the number of jars of “Summer Rambo” apple sauce and “Loring” peaches that were canned by that little lady in her tiny kitchen over the years. She never seemed to slow down.
Dorothy was a loving daughter, good sister, devoted wife, loving aunt, mother, mother-in-law grandmother, great grandmother and friend. While she will be missed by those that knew and loved her, we pray that she is now home with our Lord.
