Dolly loved her family and her life as a wife, mom, and Nonny. Her home was always open to anyone she knew and her Italian cooking was loved by her family and friends. Some of her favorite times included playing dominos, bingo, and bunco with her friends at Simeon Square and going to the casino to play the slot machines. She loved to tell stories about roller skating and dancing when she was young. She enjoyed sitting outside in the warm sun and truly appreciated the beautiful things in life. Dolly will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
