Dolores Giometti Obituary

DOLORES MARIE GIOMETTI

Age 94, the beloved wife of the late M. Richard.  Cherished mother and best friend to Michele and Ron (Alvarado); also Melissa (Ron) Fowler and Michael (Marlene) Giometti.  Adored Mimi to Isabella and Christopher (Allison) Alvarado, Grandma to Samantha (Jason) Weibel, Erik Fowler, Martae and Cameron Giometti; Great-Grandmother to Cora and Beau.  Also survived by her sister in-law I. Marie Giometti (the late Al) Priore, and nieces and nephews and the countless friends she made wherever she went.

Dolores was the youngest of four:  She spoke frequently about how much she was looking forward to meeting her parents Raymond and Nellie (Dignal) Henry in Heaven, and reuniting with her siblings Claire (Edward) Donley, Marjorie (Joseph) Rychick and Robert (Barbara) Henry.

Dolores had quite an extraordinary life.  She was orphaned before she was 11 years old.  Lived through the Great Depression and WWII.  Graduated high school with Honors and was Co-Captain of her Cheerleading Team.  She had a successful career, then left the corporate world to raise her children, returning to work at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh when her youngest was 16 and where she retired at 72 years old.

Dolores was an avid traveler with many stories, particularly of one trip where she traversed the United States and Canada on an “amazing” train journey and the “glory” days of air travel where she enjoyed the onboard piano.  She continued her travels up to just a couple of years ago.  

It has been an honor and privilege to have her in our lives.

Family and friends will be received at the Frank F. DeBor Funeral Home, 1065 Brookline Boulevard, 412-561-0380, on Wednesday, 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Bernard Church (St. Michael the Archangel Parish) on Thursday, at 10 a.m.

In honor of Dolores, if you wish, a contribution to your local Food Bank or Brother’s Brother Foundation were among her favorite institutions to support.
