Joleta Ann Pogorelski, 82, of Oak Hill, WV, peacefully passed away on Monday, January 1, 2018 in the comfort of her home.
Born on October 19, 1935, in Jumping Branch, WV, she was the daughter of the late William and Irene Waddell Midkiff.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Lewis "Mr. Pogo" Pogorelski.

Joleta was also loved and adored by her sons and daughters-in-law, Stephen Casimir and Rachel and Renee' Pogorelski.
Joleta was a devoted wife and a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a retired office manager for the town of Fayetteville with nearly 27 years of dedicated service to the community. She was an exceptional woman who enjoyed sharing stories about her children and grandchildren. Joleta also was an avid reader and card-playing and crossword puzzle enthusiast.
